With stunning view of the city’s skyline

BANGKOK: Are you ever watching TV or flicking through a celebrity magaznie and wondering where are these fabulously elegant people spend there time? What type of bars and restaurants to the crème de la crème of today’s world go to? Well, in Bangkok they go to Breeze Restaurant on the 51st and 52nd floor of the Lebua Tower Club. With its stunning panoramic view of the city’s skyline, it’s innovative menu, and its chic dresscode. Breeze is the place to be – and to be seen!

Location

In terms of location Breeze Restaurant in Bangkok wins hands down. Few places can offer al fresco dining with such a beautiful backdrop. A top tip would be to come before sunset so you can watch Bangkok transition from day to night. Address:1055 Si Lom, Silom, Bang Rak, Bangkok 10500.

Atmosphere

The atmosphere is classy and chic thanks to a strickly enforced “smart attire” dress code. I know there are mixed views on dress codes but when you are dining on the 52nd floor I think you should make the effort to wear something other than ripped denim shorts and in fairness it definitely adds to the experience when everyone is looking fabulous.

Food is pan-Asian

The cusinie at Breeze is pan-Asian with some modern western twists incorporated into many of the dishes. There is an equal selection of seafood and meat dishes as well as vegetarian options. Guests can choose from the a la carte option or go all out and try the tasting menu with wine pairings, which is of course what we did. In total we had 7 courses and 5 of them were to die for, one was fairly good (the dessert) and on wasn’t up to par (Turkey and Mushroom Broth).
I was throughly impressed with how creative the menu was, often places that have very obvious selling points e.g. a view or a famous name, put less effort into their food but that was not the case in Breeze. The dishes were wonderfully rich in flavour and the presentation was superb.

Cocktails

My favourite part of the night just had to be the DIY cocktails at the start of the night were we were given a chemistry set and instructed as to how to make our own cocktails, brilliant!

Service

Good service throughout, knowledgable waiter and sommlier, no compliants.

Price

As high as it’s location… no I kid, Breeze is pricey by Bangkok standards for sure but compared to restaurants in Europe it is reasonable and the experience is definitely worth it.

Overall

Dining in Breeze was more of an experience than just a meal. From the view to the experimental cocktails, to the delicious food that ranged from bright green sushi to top quality steak – my mouth is watering just thinking about it! Seriously.

Side note to finish this review, if Bangkok is a little far for you then you are in luck. Breeze has just opened a new restaurant in Frankfurt. I haven’t been but based on this experience I would say it’s worth next time in the German city.
