Tables Restaurant at Hyatt Erawan Hotel
Sunday Brunch in Bangkok
European finesse and cultured cuisine awaits at Tables at Grand Hyatt Erawan Hotel, a restaurant offering the only tableside-cooking brunch in Bangkok. Offering a refined menu of classic international dishes, cooked ‘a la minute’, the Tables Sunday brunch is the best opportunity for visitors to try a little bit of everything the restaurant has to offer, including a comprehensive range of meat, seafood, salad, pasta...and a whole room dedicated to dessert. For such a sophisticated and unique dining experience, the price is unbelievable value at 1,600++ baht per person with the option of a 580++ baht additional fee for free-flow Prosecco, wine, beer and orange juice. Open from 12:00 to 15:00, Tables Restaurant is located on the corner of Ploenchit and Ratchadamri Road and is easily accessed by BTS stations at Chit Lom or Ratchadamri.
Tables Restaurant spans the entirety of the mezzanine level overlooking the entrance to the Hyatt Hotel. It is delightfully laid out, and belies the expansive space with a subtle use of partitions, soft lighting and well spaced out tables. The result is an intimate experience that suits a romantic meal, or private family time. For larger groups there are also two private dining rooms designed to seat 12 and 32 people that can be booked in advance. Upon entry to the restaurant, a three piece band plays smooth jazz standards as immaculately dressed staff lead you to your table.
Due to the range of food on offer, it is recommended to take your time exploring the many cooking stations and buffet stands before you begin: cold cuts with cantaloupe melon, several hard and soft cheeses, a staffed salad station and an impressive seafood area are all popular for the first trip. The seafood station in particular sees a steady flow of traffic thanks to the large, shelled tiger prawns, oysters in the half shell, Norwegian smoked salmon and a variety of tapas dishes such as seared tuna and poached sea bass with cauliflower foam. Of course, the whole concept of Tables is the fresh tableside dining with a la minute offerings including champagne risotto, spaghetti arrabbiata, pan fried king prawns in a choice of either garlic butter or Thai style mango dressing, roast leg of lamb, fantastic lobster bisque, and two dessert options – crepes suzette and cherry jubilee.
In addition to this munificent selection, each diner is served one half of a Canadian red lobster, prepared a la minute, either as lobster Thermidor or lobster salad. The lobster is of average size but the taste is succulent and shelled for convenience. The food here is very European, authentically rich and creamy, with very little attempt to cater to other regional world cuisines. As for standout options, our personal favourites include the Bayonne cured ham with sweet melon, freshly cut smoked salmon, pink and tender roast leg of lamb, served with new potatoes and a rich red wine based gravy, and a truly outstanding lobster bisque, made with lobster claws and a touch of cognac. The lychee iced tea is also delicious, made with globes of fresh fruit to sweeten the tea, for a refreshing palate cleanser.
After all this you could be forgiven for feeling content, but that would be forgetting the dedicated dessert room at Tables Restaurant, which must be the most comprehensive collection of European puddings, mousses and cakes in Bangkok. The tiramisu is rich and creamy in equal measure, and the cherry jubilee is freshly prepared with a sugar reduction mixed with vivid whole red cherries and topped with a homemade vanilla ice-cream specked with vanilla pods – to say this dish is sweet is an understatement, but it is certainly tasty. Tables Restaurant at Grand Hyatt Erawan Hotel is one of the busiest Sunday Brunches in Bangkok and for good measure: fantastic service, premium ingredients and authentic European cuisine – it’s a straightforward strategy that works.
