Babette’s Steakhouse at Hotel Muse Bangkok
Premium Steakhouse near Siam0
Babette’s Steakhouse at Hotel Muse Bangkok offers premium cuts of Aussie, American and Japanese steak in an Art-Deco styled interior. Chequered floors, plush seats and
19th floorviews make the dining room at Babette’s one of the most sophisticated in Bangkok, with several partitions making the large space feel decidedly more cosy. This dining room was previously the modern Thai restaurant SuaTha Ros, but this has been sacrificed for a far meatier steakhouse.
Thankfully, the brief but excellent menu more than complements the exalted surroundings. Although the bill of fare is just one large page we were still torn between which premium cut of steak to order, or whether to choose pork, chicken or lamb.

For an absolute taste sensation – and when money is no object – the 200g wagyu sirloin from a “Wagyu Olympic Champion” at Babette’s Bangkok is one of the softest cuts of meat in existence with a rich, buttery taste and a smooth texture (2,700 baht). With a score of A5 (denoting size and marbling of the meat), you can be assured that this is top-end beef direct from Japan’s finest farms. Served with a small side salad and roasted garlic only, diners are expected to purchase sides separately, such as onion rings or Pont Neuf potatoes. Other choice cuts on offer include Australian grain-fed Jack’s Creek Black Angus rib eye which is available for 1,600 baht for 250g. This thicker steak is full of flavour and has more bite to it than the Japanese wagyu.
The crowd is a mix of in-house guests from Hotel Muse, local expats and Thai families, and most go for a juicy steak, although other dishes of note include a hulking rack of pork spare ribs (1,250 baht), pan seared salmon fillet (820 baht), or for something extra special, the lobster Thermidor (2,900 baht). The wine list is surprisingly developed at Babette’s with an impressive 15 wines by the glass and a full list several pages long.
Other quirky touches added at Babette’s Steakhouse Bangkok include three types of seasoning salt, slates with rough-hewn wooden bases instead of traditional plates, and a selection of signature steak knives sourced from around the world. This is certainly not the cheapest steakhouse in Bangkok, but the choice cuts served here are hard to beat. Find Hotel Muse on Langsuan Road, close to Chit Lom BTS Station. It is open for dinner only throughout the week, although they are trialling lunch on weekends.
