Looking for a bite to eat with a difference or in the mood for a light bite perched atop the 37th floor with the city’s nightscape as the backdrop and a fun and speak-easy evening? The first Akira Back restaurant in Thailand is ever-ready to take you on a culinary and sensory journey.
Born in Korea and raised in the USA, famed Chef Akira Back who has been awarded a Michelin star has brought his unique style of contemporary Pan-Asian cuisine to Bangkok for the first time. His modern twist on gastronomy is inventive, exciting and vibrant, blending Japanese and Korean elements with an international influence.
Less demure but flamboyant, the pared-back interior is stunning, arty yet dramatic and decked in rich deep hues of black and gold. The impressive entrance is tiled with dark wood furnishings, creating a more glamorous, sassy and mysterious ambience yet inviting and makes you wonder what is happening inside.
Passing through the hallway, thick Shinto straw ropes in various lengths formed the arches and ceilings dividing different section of the dining area that gives a hint of Neo-classic style. Aesthetically powerful, the design and décor brings some excitement to the enchanting dining room. There are four different venues in one, comprising a main dining area, sushi bar, omakase bar and four aesthetically designed private dining rooms. Black marble and counters with soft lighting (almost too dark and a torch is required to navigate the menu) combine to create a sleek and cozy ambience.
One of the many private dining rooms decorated in oriental motif.
