Saturday brunch at Okura Prestige Hotel Bangkok is from 12:00 to 16:00 and costs 1,950 baht (not including tax or service) or 2,650 baht with free-flow cocktails, beers and wines.
The modernist dining room is located next to the lobby on the 24th floor, and thanks to floor to ceiling windows you will get a real urbane sense, thanks to its locatation in Ploenchit business district in downtown Bangkok. Food islands and live cooking stations run the length of the dining room, allowing plenty of room to roam around and pick out something tasty.
Thai snacks and appetizers are beautifully arranged on trays around the food islands and there is still a touch of Japan (as there always is with everything associated with this prestigious hotel chain) with trays of sushi and sashimi laid out fresh. Chinese dishes such as dim sum and roast duck also make an appearance.
Okura Prestige Hotel makes a real effort with their sweets section in all of its restaurants and Making Waves Saturday Brunch is no exception, combining Thai and European desserts which look great and taste even better. Desserts include Thai classics such as mango and sticky rice, and a speciality steamed coconut treat called ‘kanom sai sai’. Wrapped in a banana leaf, it is soft, sweet and the perfect example of Thai sweets. The range of European cakes, tarts and puddings will surely impress and portions are small so you can try a variety of dishes.
Saturday brunch in Bangkok is becoming the latest trend in the city, and ‘Making Waves’ at Okura Prestige Hotel is right up there with the best of them. The focus on Thai dishes is a nice change from the international focus of many buffets and the setting is fantastic. It is one of the longest Saturday brunches in Bangkok too so there is plenty of time to try everything.
Getting to Okura Prestige Hotel couldn’t be easier. There is a direct walkway linking the hotel to Ploenchit BTS Skytrain Station.
