4 Affordable Omakase Options in Bangkok

4 Affordable Omakase Options in Bangkok

Imagine having a sit down dinner at an exclusive venue where the head chef meticulously prepares each dish for you. An astounding tasting menu where you know each and every ingredient is carefully selected and crafted into a course that brings out the best in every item. Now imagine leaving it up to the chef to decide literally each ‘bite’ for you.

No picture menu, no picking off the plate what you like and don’t like to eat, just complete trust to the person standing in front of you. This kind of experience is what has been exploding into the Bangkok dining scene for a few years now.

“Respectfully leaving another to decide what is best” is the literal meaning of Omakase in a Japanese restaurant. The man behind the counter will be putting up a culinary performance for you that can last up to a few hours.

Rather than a meal, many would call it an experience, and it has got sushi connoisseurs all around Bangkok up on their feet. You can lean back easy knowing that the chef has personally hand selected every ingredient being put on display in front of you, from fishes to the sushi rice. When everything has been cut up and prepared, it’s then the chef’s task to create harmony throughout the whole meal.

There is no rule to what type of fish should come out first, and each sequence is unique to each chef. It is a journey you would want to experience at least once in your lifetime.

Having said all that, it is inevitable for one to think that this type of dining would cost a fortune. In many cases this is true, there are Omakase courses from Michelin starred chefs that cost more than 10,000 THB (~300 USD).

But we are in Bangkok, and the culinary variety we have here is one of the things we love about it. What if I told you that there are Omakase courses that you wouldn’t have to break the bank for? Here is a list of a few we have selected for you.
