After coming back from Tokyo I’ve been craving for Japanese cuisine. Been trying out many Japanese restaurant lately and really couldn’t have enough. One place I always think of is Shintaro at the Four Season Hotel Bangkok. This time I was here on a week day, there were only a few tables available. The eatery is small and cozy with reflections of Japan written everywhere. Seating’s are a bit tight but it really brings back the memories of Tokyo.

The food and the service were superb just as expected. I can’t get me mind off the raw fishes; they were fresh comes in large pieces. Chef Satoshi Sawada did a great job in the QC of each dish that come out the kitchen. Shintaro has been established for more than 15 years, one of the pioneers of Japanese restaurant in Bangkok.
