Iron Chef Table Bangkok

TV Show-based Restaurant in Thonglor

Iron Chef Table, like the television show of the same name, has celebrity chefs preparing flamboyant dishes in a studio setting. All seven of the Thai ‘Iron Chefs’ are part of the venture, although most days it is Chef ‘Art’ who is in-house, with the other TV-stars taking their turn in the kitchen on weekends.

There are eight main ingredients which every dish is based around: Canadian lobster or Thai river prawn, foie gras, wagyu beef, pork, black grouper, duck, eggs or blue fin tuna. At least half of the menu is based on recipes actually created on the show and each dish has the name of the chef who created it listed below. It’s a fairly even split between each of the Thai master chefs and even a couple of dishes from Chef Hiroyuki Sakai from the original Japanese Iron Chef programme.

This is an undeniably fun dining experience, especially for fans of the show, and considering this is a recreation of a television show it should come as no surprise that the style and presentation of the dishes is as important as the taste.

The layout of Iron Chef Table restaurant is bright and modern, with a fully open kitchen and a mock studio lighting rig overhead. Tall stools are lined up along the kitchen side so you can really feel part of it all. You can also choose to dine at a table or on the second floor overlooking the action.

The chef themselves or one of the very well trained service staff present each course and explain what creative changes have been made to each particular dish and the story behind it. That’s the enjoyable thing about dining at Iron Chef Table, there is always a twist to the recipe which makes it entertaining.

Standout dishes include the French onion soup with fine cuts of wagyu beef and crispy onion fries on the side (590 baht), and the bisque egg pudding, which is a sous vide organic egg pudding prepared in a Japanese ‘chawanmushi’ style, with a rich Canadian lobster bisque and an impressive foam which adds a sparkle to each bite as it dissolves on the tongue (390 baht).

Fans of foie gras should try the foie gras Rossini (2,590 baht for 100g of Australian Angus beef), which turns this classic Italian dish on its head and makes the seared duck liver the main ingredient with beef and black truffle to complement the dish. This huge portion is big enough for four (there is a smaller portion designed for two people at 1,490 baht) and comes with a delicately spiced mango chutney and marinated figs. For dessert, the patisserie master, Chef Gai, has come up with some very Instagram-worthy options such as the Grand Marnier and caviar parfait which comes to the table like a little orange tree, with yuzu jelly, honeycomb, mini orange macaroons and a sprinkling of caviar to add a dash of salt to the dish which actually highlights the sweetness.

Despite the technical and at times molecular cuisine on offer at Iron Chef Table, this isn’t exactly fine dining and families are more than welcome. There is even a kids menu with cute burgers in the shape of teddy bears and other child-friendly options. Cool lounge house music keeps the mood vibrant, fresh and in keeping with this fashionable area of Bangkok.

The cocktails here are just as creative as the food, with a whimsical collection of drinks, such as the ‘forbidden cone’, a rum and fresh strawberry creation that combines ice cream and a drink. The idea is to have a spoon of freshly made (and delightfully boozy) ice cream and then a sip of your drink, or the ‘jello shot cosmo’ which comes served with jelly set into orange peel segments.

They also have their own exclusive wines sourced from around the world. The three own label wines in their collection are a cabernet Sauvignon from Chile, Prosecco from Italy and a Sauvignon blanc from Boudreaux, on top of an extensive collection which includes several bottles under the 2,000 baht mark. Iron Chef Table Bangkok is located on Thonglor (Sukhumvit Soi 55) on the corner of Soi 11. It’s a quick taxi ride from Thong Lo BTS Station.
