Moreover, guests can choose their favorite Japanese gastronomic trip by dining at either Tenko or Tenshino. Both serve Japanese cuisine without equal and are ideal for lovers of quality Japanese dishes. Above all, they are memorable dining locations whether out with family and friends or work colleagues.
Omakase – certainly one of the finest Japanese dining events you can experience. And at the heart of the Tenko omakase experience is the quality of the produce. At Tenko, we fly ingredients in from the famous Toyosu market and other exclusive Japanese suppliers several times per week. Furthermore, all the produce reflects the changing seasons in Japan and are at their peak.
In addition, by working with small specialty producers all over Japan, Chef Goji Kobayashi ensures a unique supply of products. These products are rare even in Japan and cannot be found elsewhere in Bangkok. Most importantly, the focus is on seasonal ingredients, often hand-picked for Tenko by artisanal producers. Special ingredients include Takeshima wagyu beef, Hokkaido scallops, red sea urchin from Kyushu, rice from Niigata and tomatoes from Yamanashi.
For a slightly different experience, stop by Tenshino. With a delightfully imaginative menu, Tenshino serves inventive Japanese cuisine using the freshest ingredients possible. We fly these produce directly from Japan and France several times per week and used in the kitchen immediately. Certainly, from the first taste, you will be astounded that Japanese food outside of Japan could be so excellent.
The chefs at Tenshino celebrate the huge variety and seasonality of produce found in Japan and France. They craft modern dishes but with great respect for traditional Japanese methods and culinary traditions. Consequently, the eclectic menu features a range of inventive Japanese canapes, starters, raw seafood, mains, sides and desserts. Above all, the menu is directed by the desire to create a social and casual dining experience designed for sharing.
The diverse menu changes often depending on what is in season. However, an example selection would include appetizers such as tender wagyu beef tartar or the heavenly Hokkaido scallops. What’s more, there’s also a raw section featuring the freshest sushi and sashimi imported directly from Toyosu fish market. Another favorite are the Jean-Paul Monsieur oysters from Utah Beach in France. Similarly, from the mains section, highlights include veal sweetbread or Maine lobster.
If you aim to be the best Japanese restaurant in Bangkok, the design must match the cuisine.
Tenko is striking in its minimalist design with natural materials such as stone and wood, following Japanese design traditions. The beautiful interior is in neutral colors with dark wood, cream and grey hues plus soft lighting. Also, diners can sit at a wooden counter around the open kitchen where they view the chef in action. Moreover, there is also a separate reception area with comfortable tables and chairs. Here, guests can relax before or after their incredible omakase dining experience.
Likewise, Tenshino has exquisite attention to detail with regard to its design. It’s a wonderful combination of a French bistro and Japanese natural materials and textiles. Tenshino features a rich design scheme with bold colors and individual elements which create excitement and a hint of surprise.
Tenshino is divided into five sections, each with a slightly different style. Guests are greeted by a 5-meter communal table which is strikingly decorated. In addition, the chic bar area features curved booths and bistro-style marbled tables. In other words, it’s an ideal place for a pre-dinner drink or more casual meal.
