Since the opening last year Heaven Bangkok have made a big buzz in Bangkok Party scene. The opening was one of the biggest of the year. Heaven Bangkok is a huge dining and entertainment complex on top the Zen shopping complex. Four floors of 2 restaurant and 2 bars; Zense Gourmet deck serves five types of cuisine from 5 well known restaurants. Shintori is a Japanese restaurant franchise serving elegant Japanese cuisine. Horizon a Tapas bar with DJ both equipped with state for the art sound and lighting system. Heaven on Zen is a champagne bar that offers spectacular views of the city. Actually all the outlets have outdoor seating and provide amazing views of the city.
While we were doing some shopping at Central World, deciding what to get was a big chore which made us really tired and hungry. We wanted to chill out and get the feel of Bangkok. There were tons restaurants and bars in Central World but none will do justice for the headache of shopping we had. The only option was to go to Heaven.
We started with some drinks at Horizon. There were many drinks, creative cocktails and original tapas to choose from. One of the cocktails we had was a coffee blended cocktail priced around 200 baht. It was really good it had nice aroma of coffee and too sweet.
The tapas we tried were the pad krapao lamb on crunchy wonton. The lamb was tender and spicy with a nice kick from the chilies, the crunchy wonton gave it an interesting texture. Seating outside, the ambiance was just perfect, there was some breeze. The changing of evening lights made it magical.
After the sunset we move down to Zenses Gourmet Deck. There were many seating arrangements here; we went for the indoor table right by the window. Right away the manager khun Chalermkiat suggested us to start off with some wine. Taras, Bin 383, Cabernat Sauvignon (395/glass).
The menus had choices from 5 restaurants each restaurant had about 10-30 items. The Thai menu is from White Café, European menu is from To Die For, Indian is from Red, and Italian menu is from Gianni. Also guest can order items from Shintori’s menu the Japanese restaurant one floor above.
Since we were having wine, we avoided Thai and Indian, also it would be too many flavor profiles to handle for one night. The first dish was a large combo appetizer plate “To Die for Platter” (1350).
It combines Duck foi gras with truffle salt and pear tart, crab cakes, blacken Hokkaido Cajun scallops and baked Manila clams. It was a nice dish for sharing with many varieties of flavors, textures and aromas.
From Shintori we had the Avocado & tuna paste cocktail (320). It was light but flavorful, the tuna and avocado comes together with the home made shoyu base sauce.
For the mains we had 2 dishes from Gianni, Lemon Sole (690) grilled with white wine, lemon and capers, a beautiful dish, nicely presented. It had an intense flavor of fish goes together well with lemon and caper sauce serve with spinach, broccoli, potatoes and tomatoes, a very healthy dish.
Agnello New Zealand lamb chops 350 grams (990), was perfectly grilled nice crust outside, inside still pink. It was tender, smoky and savory served with grilled vegetables and mash potatoes.
To end the meal before the dessert we had Yellow tail (650). It was a nice size firm and fresh, it was soft at the same time it had a little crunch on the bite. It was very delicate.
Khun Chalermkiat suggest some sparkling wine by the glass to go with the dessert McGuigan Black label Chardonnay Brut (395)
Yuzu cheese cake (195) served with passion fruit, mango sherbet and tropical fruit cubes. I thought being a cheese cake it would be heavy but I was wrong. The cheese was creamy and had full flavor of cheese cake, it was well balanced with the sherbet and fruits.
Heaven Bangkok is one of those places that is right for any occasion. It has the ambiance for any mood, whether it’s fine dining, romantic, relaxed, party and the list goes on.
