Chef Martin at Blunos Eastin Grand

| July 6, 2018

Eastin Grand Sathorn Bangkok is delighted to announce the unveiling of Blunos, Martin Blunos’ new restaurant at the poolside on the 14th floor of the hotel and the 2-Michelin Star recipient’s first establishment to open outside his native England.


With his trademark walrus moustache and lilting West Country accent Martin’s amiable, friendly demeanour belies a skill which has led him to achieve 2 coveted Michelin Stars each for his two restaurants and a host of TV appearances including his own show and appearances on “Iron Chef UK” “MasterChef Australia”.

Forget fine dining and avant-garde adventures – Blunos is all about value for money hearty fare and classic comfort food devoid of any pretentiousness, yet made with the most delectable and desirable of ingredients prepared with Martin’s Michelin Star touch. As the man himself says “My Michelin Stars were a great personal achievement but in the end it’s not the accolades you hang on your wall which count, it’s the empty plates and satisfied smiles which truly mean the most. At Blunos I’ll be making real food for real people.”

Martin’s menu certainly lives up to this promise with a selection of superbly satisfying dishes at prices that are as enticing as the food, including his range of signature specialties such as a quarter shoulder of lamb cooked long and slow with lots of garlic & lemon and rosemary on crushed potatoes, “The Fisherman” – oak-smoked salmon & salmon mousse, rollmop herring, poached whitefish, prawns and mussels served chilled with lemon, Marie Rose & garlic herb dips and Melba toast, smoked salmon mousse with toasted croutes, crab cakes with wasabi mayo and hand-cut beef chili with Thai jasmine rice, sour cream, crispy tortilla and coriander sprigs plus a dreamy range of fantastically familiar desserts.

The atmosphere at Blunos fully complements Martin’s menu with an appealing ambiance which encourages diners to stay awhile over a languid and laidback meal simply enjoying the moment, while the new poolside “hang-out” bar with resident DJ (every Wednesday – Sunday from 19.00-22.00 hrs.) provides the perfect spot to relive the very best of times in the very best of company.

Daily 11.00-24.00 hrs. (last order 23.30 hrs.)
