The buffet takes place in the Voila restaurant which has a contemporary-classic vibe much like the rest of the hotel. A looming purple chandelier hangs as a centrepiece, but due to the size and location of Voila restaurant on the second floor overlooking Sofitel’s lobby, the proceedings are fairly casual. For example, there is no thought of decorum when cracking open yet more Alaskan king crab claws or delving into that next plate of a dozen Fine de Claire oysters. To add a sprinkle of sophistication to proceedings a roster of jazz musicians takes to the stage in the lobby, their light melodies a pleasant background accompaniment to brunch.

The abundance of food is laid out on islands and, such is the variety, it would be honestly impossible to try it all. This leads to an enviable dilemma because would you rather a plate of crab, escargots, clams and lobster, or perhaps some cold cuts imported from Rome with a little salad and cheese from their dedicated cheese room? Then there is a Thai station with a comprehensive range of Thai regional cuisine to taste and enjoy, and, something fairly new to the Sunday brunch experience, an ‘a la minute’ preparation of foie gras, salmon fillets, lobster, tenderloin of beef and a selection of kebabs. The roast meats include a leg of lamb and pork, which will be cut to order, with plenty of sautéed vegetables, beef bourguignon, breast of chicken and potato or mash to accompany them.

If this wasn’t enough, you will also find a dedicated sushi chef preparing sashimi and sushi to order, plus a chef preparing Chinese duck rolls and a dim sum selection close by. On the other side of the restaurant there is the famed cheese room of which Sofitel are justly proud and a stone oven pizza area. It is safe to say the selection really will astound.

There is a three-tier pricing structure here: the Sunday brunch buffet with soft drinks costs 2,200 baht, adding on free-flow wines and cocktails costs a total of 3,750 baht, or there is the option of unlimited free-flow Veuve Clicquot Champagne, wine and cocktails for a cost of 4,750 baht. Some may baulk at the price, but where else can you quaff glass after glass of bubbly while enjoying this ensemble of world delicacies? No expense is spared here and this is the price for such a rare treat – one that is entirely justified. The staff are so diligent at Sofitel Sukhumvit Hotel Sunday brunch that glasses are refilled and finished plates whisked away continuously without notice. It keeps the environment clean and creates more room for another run at the Fine de Claire oysters in the half shell. Pleasingly, there are also many staff members scanning the buffet and waiting to restock with more fresh produce.

Of course, we are not done yet, and after a glass of wine or a cocktail, it is time to hit the dessert section. The chocolate fondue fountain is a little bit of fun, with fruit and marshmallow to smother, but I couldn’t resist their homemade ice-cream and sorbet section which includes raspberry, chocolate, coffee and, for the first time ever, lemongrass! Actually, the ice cream could be kept a little colder as I found it had half melted by the time I returned to my seat; however, the crème brûlée and mango pudding were just to my taste and what I liked most was that portion sizes are kept small so I could try many kinds of desserts – including their famous macaroons.

The timing of the buffet is technically more 'lunch' than 'brunch' - it runs from midday to 15:00 - but we’ll let you argue about the semantics of what time constitutes brunch. All we know is it can sometimes be a rush to get across Bangkok for 11:00 on a bleary Sunday so we welcome this small adjustment.

There is no better way to spend a leisurely day in Bangkok than treating yourself and your loved ones to a little bit of luxury at a Sunday brunch at Sofitel Sukhumvit Hotel in Bangkok. It’s something you’ll look forward to all week and really is a culinary highlight to any vacation.
