Review

Setting

Zen rock garden, bamboo walls, kimono-clad waitresses—Ten-Sui is a great alternative to Bangkok’s many sleek Japanese restaurants. It offers premium dishes in a spacious townhouse setting, and while pricey (it’s especially popular with Japanese businessmen looking to impress clients or max out the expense account), its reputation is well deserved.

Rating : 17/20

Food

Page after page of dishes fill the encyclopedic menu. Among the offerings are ohayame (traditional amuse bouche), kami-nabe (paper hot pots), and age-mono (deep-fried dishes), but Ten-Sui is most famous for its elaborate kaiseki sets. Similar to degustation menus, these offer a sequenced selection of balanced dishes, which, in accordance with tradition, vary with the seasons. Sushi kaiseki, for example, comprises about eight courses including thin-sliced seasonal sashimi, flame-grilled fish, palate-cleansing soups and pickled vegetables, not to mention a handsome basket of sumptuous sushi. Reserve a set at least three days in advance to avoid disappointment. End with green tea ice cream, which, unlike most renditions, has a rare depth of flavour.

Wine

Be prepared to um and ah as there are hundreds of premium imported sakes to choose from, including spicy, sparkling, sweet and fruity variants. Shochu and beers are also available at reasonable prices.
