Niche at Siam Kempinski Hotel

Quirky Bangkok Restaurant that offers Asian and Non-Asian Recipes

Niche at Siam Kempinski have taken the idea of the all-day-dining hotel restaurant and made it cool! The innovative menu is sorted by the principal ingredient, with individual recipes sorted by their Asian or Non-Asian roots. With ¾ size servings and very competitive pricing, Niche makes it possible to order several plates to try, and when you see the intriguing menu you probably will want to sample more than your waistline will allow.

For example, you might choose the burrata cheese as an appetiser, but will you have it with a Middle Eastern style babaganoush eggplant dip, coriander and crispy rice balls (which we love!), or with tomato, anchovy and olive oil in a classic Mediterranean style? Or how about both?

This is an extremely fun way of group dining as you can select two dishes and play food critic, deciding which recipe you like best. Plus you can be safe in the knowledge that you are dining at a Kempinski brand restaurant so the service is true five-star diligence and every ingredient has been selected carefully selected.

As you are perusing the funky menu of artistic sketches, freshly baked bread is served to every table –with Asian and Non-Asian selections of spreads, of course. On our particular visit, we had a gentle red curry paste and a classic herb butter, also made in-house, every day.

The menu created by Executive chef James Norman finds influence from all over the world, be it the wasabi, soy and tuna flakes in the Asian salmon recipe (550 baht) to the Indonesian rendang curry reduction served with the huge Aussie lamb chops (690 baht).

However, not everything at Niche is conceptual and actually some of the dishes are a homage to tradition. Take the Non-Asian short rib beef dish, served as two perfectly cut chunks of meat, served with a rich gravy reduction, a red onion jam and a side of mashed potato. For 650 baht it really deserves top marks for taste and value. Of course, you might also choose a Chinese flavour with Szechuan spices, garlic chives and ginger tofu. To make things easy, the cost of a particular ingredient stays the same no matter if you choose Asian or Non-Asian.

For dessert we highly recommend the vanilla bean iced parfait with its clean, cool flavours, served as a classic mango sticky rice for a touch of Thai or with fruits and honey (250 baht).

The drinks menu is sorted by ingredient just like the food. You can choose from central ingredients including apple, ginger, and pineapple among others. Each ingredient has four drink options – two alcoholic, two without. The wine list is also outstanding in terms of quality and price, as it is in all Kempinski hotels.

The dining room is a large space with several secluded pockets so you always feel in a warm and cosy space, plus the terrace outside looks out on the inside of the hotel with a definite resort holiday vibe complete with bird song and the splashes of evening swimmers, just perfect for escaping the bustle of Bangkok.

Niche Bangkok is certainly the most enjoyable all day dining hotel restaurant in the city, and the perfect place for groups who can’t decide what type of food they want to eat.
