With a plethora of options to indulge in a champagne brunch in Bangkok, one needs to look for something that delivers on all fronts and our previous indulgent stay at The Sukhothai Bangkok sowed a seed for when we would return to book for this indulgent bubbles brunch.
Eat with your eyes first, with fresh and delectable seafood being a prime focus, lobster, giant Alaskan king crab, 7-types of oysters (even locally farmed giant Thai oysters from Suratthani), sushi, sashimi and more Japanese specialties, Pan-fried Foie Gras, plus live cooking stations including roasted Wagyu prime rib and weekly rotation choices.
There is something to suit all gourmands, from a-la-minute French onion soup, Tom Tum Goong, fresh sashimi and tempura from different live cooking stations to delectable items such as terrines and specialty salads that are so inviting.
On arrival on the dot of 12 noon, we realized that they were fully booked and it seems it is the same every week (hence a reservation is absolutely necessary), as this is the champagne brunches of all champagne brunches in Bangkok and we began to realize why. It seems that many participants had particular reasons for choosing this special brunch, some wanted to indulge their taste for the delectable champagne, some wanted to indulge in just the seafood, while others used this as an opportunity to celebrate special occasions and to be in the cosseted embrace of a wonderful food and beverage team that have many years of experience in this luxury property.
The kitchen and service team are very much engaging and provides a strong presence and asking how you are enjoying everything, as they really want to ensure that the legendary status continues. They take great delight in knowing that every guest’s whim is being catered for and they also seemed to know so many guests and were genuinely happy to welcome each and every one back or for the first time. Our glasses were constantly being topped up and they always seemed to instinctively know when our glasses were near to empty.
You must make room for dessert, as the offerings from Pastry Chef Laurent Ganguillet are simply irresistible and then there is the fabulous selection of 25-30 varieties of farmhouse cheeses sourced from around the globe and even Tiramisu and Crepes Suzette are a-la minute and not forgetting the local Thai delights. As you can imagine, you need to pace yourself and take things at a leisurely speed, as you are never left wanting.
