Sunday Brunch


Check out the more updated Sunday Brunch feature

If figuring out just by the phrase, by not knowing what it is, our humble opinion of Sunday brunch would be as listed:
• Sunday is the day of the week that we all would like to rest, relax, and spend time with families and loved ones; therefore, we should only do things we enjoy.
• Brunch is a meal that combines breakfast and lunch into one big meal
• On a Sunday who would want to wake up early? Most people wake up late and by the time they wake up it’s almost lunch time. So, people go out for brunch.

It really makes sense, right? That is why Sunday brunch is a meal that a lot of people are looking forward to eating. And Bangkok is a destination for Sunday brunch. All five stars hotels offer them and they compete to offer the best to their customers. The winner is clearly the customers. On this update we bring you many choices for Bangkok Sunday brunch. It was a very difficult task mentally and physically because we had to indulge ourselves all the top quality food at many different venues for many weeks. All the foie gras, steaks, pasta, wine, beer and cocktails we ate made us bigger and bigger but that’s our commitment to bring the best guide available.
Sunday brunch is more special than ordinary hotel buffet because it offers more selections and higher quality food. With many venues offer free flow of spirits and wine as an option, Sunday brunch is ideal for a relaxing day-off. Most of them even have live music-- usually jazz --to get you loosen up more. All the food, drinks, and music are just perfect ingredients for a good time. Expect to spend at least two hours for this meal. Just exploring the buffet stations can take you half an hour already because there are so many choices.

From all the places we’ve reviewed, they offer a wide variety of food stations, starting with salad bar, prepared hot and cold dishes, chilled seafood station, pasta stations, Japanese sushi and sashimi station, grilled station, desserts, cocktail bar, the list can go on and on. Some restaurants even have a special method of cooking like a customized wood fire Chinese oven. The types of cuisine featured in Sunday brunch in Bangkok are from all over the world. Of course there are Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Italian, Indian French, etc. The difference of each restaurant is the ambiance, live music and special dishes each venue offer. However, you can expect high quality ingredients in all venues such as the imported foie gras, lamb, beef and oysters (see the in-depth review).

Colonnade at The Sukhothai Bangkok always draws a large crowd but its quality and services never drops. The restaurant is roughly divided into two main sections: the main buffet display and the dessert room. Its huge piece of imported foie gras from France will make you gain weight but trust me it’s worth it. It’s the only place that offers Maine lobster at the time we review. Also you will not be disappointed with its desserts.
The Four Seasons Hotel Bangkok sets its Sunday brunch by using three of their outlets: the Aqua Bar, the Spice Market, and the Madison all Parichat court area. The most crowded outlet, however, is always the Madison because it has a huge live grilled station. Its surf and turf should not be missed.
Rain Tree Café at Plaza Athenee, A Royal Meridien Hotel offers a quieter atmosphere. It offers great food and a full bar is included in the price. It is the only place at the time of the review that offers salmon roe. If you are into raw fish, this is the place to be. Also you should not miss its Alaskan king crab… real delicious.
Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit utilizes three of their outlets and a banquet room for its extravagance Sunday brunch. The whole floor is turned into a grand display of buffet. Live jazz and drinks are just a perfect combination with great food. Its huge pasta station is no doubt very attractive. You can bring ingredients from other stations to have it done just the way you like.
Trader Vic’s at Bangkok Marriott Resort and Spa, a Franchise from the US, influenced by Polynesian style decoration and cooking. A very fun place to be that provides both outdoor and indoor seating with a view of the river. Try the Chilean oyster shot to get you going with the flow of the live band. Do not miss the made to order meats and fish from the wood fire Chinese oven with choice of rubs and sauces.
ETC at Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel and towers is targeted to a family with kids. The restaurant ambiance has an advantage because it views the Chaopraya River. They have a children’s corner with finger food, live magic performance, and clowns to entertain your children. They even have a bar for the kids to mix their own cocktail (of course without the alcohol).
JW Marriott Bangkok offers the same Sunday brunch on Saturday as well. It’s very American because they have Thanksgiving year round. If you miss the United States or like to see how Americans have their turkey meal with cranberry sauce and mash potatoes this is the place to be.
Sunday brunch at Shangri La
I recently had Sunday brunch at Shangri La’s NEXT2 Café and Terrace with my family and enjoyed the liveliness of the dinning area and wide variety of cuisine it offers. We were seated in the main dinning area in the Café which is beautifully decorated with jars of colorful pickle,
Sunday brunch is very addictive. Once you’ve been to one you will always yearn for more. From all the places we’ve been to most of them are almost fully booked. So reservation is a must to avoid the waiting and hunger anger. We see a lot of competition of these venues to win over customers’ hearts. That’s good because you can expect to see higher quality ingredients. Maybe in the near future Toro and Kobe beef will become a common ingredient in these venues. Of course, this is not all the Sunday brunches in Bangkok. We will bring you more in our future updates.
