Experience in the tradition of Japanese Omakase Bangkok at Tenko restaurant in the botanical garden where all courses are designed and selected by Chef Goji Kobayashi, a former chef at 1 Michelin-Starred restaurant in San Francisco. All fresh fish and seafood are air-flown from the world famous Toyosu market several times a week. The omakase-style meal is the world of chef’s choice where the chef prepares one piece of fish at a time, announces its name and origin, answers your questions, and guesses what else you might enjoy and how much more you’d like to eat. All courses are chosen and prepared carefully which can be sushi or tempura, teriyaki or a series of vegan dishes.
Chef’s Choice of appetizer, sushi, sashimi, warm dish, soup, and dessert.
Japanese cuisine has always been a favourite cuisine for aficionados of the most exquisite food. It is always so fresh, the flavours are exciting and perfectly balanced and the servings are just the right size.
This is why, whatever you do, make sure you don’t miss trying out the popular Japanese omakase-style dining experience when visiting Bangkok. It’s a way of dining that has taken the world by storm, and with very good reason.
So, if you are planning to visit Bangkok, and would like to dine on something different than traditional Thai food, don’t forget to seek out some of the best “chef’s selection” omakase Bangkok restaurants. Over the past few years, Bangkok foodies have welcomed a number of sushi restaurant openings offering a higher-end dining experience called ‘Omakase’, which can be simply translated to ‘I will leave it up to you’ in Japanese, meaning that your meal will be prepared by a trained sushi master and consist of many delicate courses that highlight the freshest fish and most premium seasonal produce of the day.
Omakase is Japanese cooking at its highest form of execution and it’s all about using faultless ingredients and perfect presentation. A good omakase experience should be well-paced and offer guests an opportunity to interact with the master chef. All you have to do beforehand is let the chef know if you have any dietary restrictions, and then just sit back and be surprised and delighted by the delicious array of morsels before you, the absolute freshness of the ingredients and of course the consummate skills of the chef.
Omakase dining is an essential part of any visit to Japan, of course, but fortunately you can enjoy this unbeatable experience without buying a plane ticket. For high-quality sushi and a meal you won’t soon forget, here is one of the best omakase Bangkok restaurants in a great and convenient location that we would highly recommend.
TENKO OMAKASE PULLMAN BANGKOK KING POWER
Welcome to Tenko, Pullman Bangkok King Power’s one of a kind omakase Bangkok dining experience. Diners at Tenko will travel on a gastronomic journey in a restaurant set in the most beautiful location. It is a Japanese omakase Bangkok restaurant that is unmatched and provides an ideal venue for a memorable meal that you will never forget.
A strikingly designed omakase Bangkok restaurant is nothing without a master chef in the kitchen.
Chef Goji Kobayashi began his gastronomic journey in America and Japan where he was inspired by local chefs. He then further developed and refined traditional Japanese techniques whilst working in a Michelin Starred omakase-style restaurant in San Francisco. Chef Goji always loved the idea of serving guests in front of him and experiencing their reaction first hand, as well as preparing food and performing dexterous knife skills with the most delicate ingredients.
In 2018, Chef Goji completed his 10 years’ experience as a chef. In Japan, after a chef devotes their life to 10 years of training, they are considered an “ichinin mae”, which means independent chef. However, Chef Goji believes that a chef is forever a student in the culinary world and the learning never ends.
Tenko Omakase Bangkok can be found in its own beautiful and tranquil stand-alone structure hidden in one of the busiest districts in Bangkok and is located in a beautiful botanic garden, surrounded by lush greenery and koi ponds on the lobby floor level in the heart of Pullman Bangkok King Power. Offering an exclusive dining experience utilizing top quality premium produce, each immaculate dish is prepared and served right in front of you by Chef Goji Kobayashi. Whilst the food is prepared right in front of you, diners will be completely immersed in the whole holistic experience and dazzled by the taste of the most delicate ingredients that are flown in fresh daily from the famous Toyosu fish market in Japan.
Chef Goji Kobayashi typically starts the meal with a selection of traditional nigiri sushi, all made with selected fish that has arrived ocean-fresh from Japan. Some dishes have an innovative twist, combining creative preparation methods and time-honoured Japanese techniques. The menu changes daily and with the seasons, but examples of special dishes include Summer peach with Takoshima wagyu beef and Hairy crab with water eggplant, kiku flower and vinegar miso. Quite simply, once you have tried our omakase Bangkok restaurant nothing in the world will ever compare to it.
