Japanese Sunday Brunch at Zuma Bangkok

What a shame. After working as a journalist in Thailand’s luxury hospitality industry for many years, I just had a chance to really be there recently as their brunch reopens. I have heard so much about this place and it was great as expected.

I’m not a big fan of brunch as I don’t eat much, but seeing the food lining up at Zuma made me forget that. With the concept of ‘Contemporary Japanese Cuisine’, Zuma offers Japanese Izakaya style with a casual ambiance. Well, I mean as casual as the casualness in St. Regis Bangkok allows. There are endless sushi, sashimi, seafood, grills, salads and soups to choose from and those are just kind of appetizers. In the packages, you can order one main course as well. I tried the Spicy Beef Tenderloin with Sesame and it was so soft that I could eat more!

The brunch here is claimed to be Bangkok’s longest brunch, serving between 11.00 a.m. to 3 p.m. I was told that they have Saturday Night Brunch as well and it is really successful. But for me daytime is definitely better for eating this much. This is truly a place for people who love Japanese food… and drinks (they have sake sommelier as well). But seriously, who doesn’t? Japanese food is so loved in Thailand and around the world. This is why the Zuma brand has come this far.

About the prices. Because it’s in the St. Regis, you can expect normal city hotel rates. Sunday brunch packages starts from 2,180 THB. For more information visit Zumarestaurants.com or email reservations@zumarestaurant.co.th.
