Delightful Gastronomic Hideaway
Bangkok Marriott Hotel The Surawongse has announced the opening of its new Japanese restaurant, Kissuisen. This delightful gastronomic hideaway is set to become a haven for connoisseurs of Japanese cuisine, offering an immersive culinary journey inspired by the philosophical ‘Godai’ elements: earth, fire, wind and water.
Led by esteemed Chef Yuichi Mitsui, who holds decades of experience serving at leading restaurants in Japan, including Michelin-starred establishments, the Kissuisen team carefully crafts each menu concept. Their goal is to capture the very essence of Japanese culture by using premium seasonal ingredients, promising guests a unique and unforgettable gastronomic experience during every visit.
Begin your culinary adventure with a peaceful stroll through the serene Zen garden, where finely patterned gravel and lush bonsai trees set the mood, inviting you to unwind.
As you step inside the restaurant, you’ll escape the bustling streets of Bangkok and find yourself in the heart of the nostalgic Surawongse neighbourhood. Here dining spaces and private rooms are adorned with natural materials, paying homage to the Japanese art of Zen.
Earth | ‘Chi’– Kissuisen’s homely yet elegant Izakaya greets you upon entering the venue. Savour the smoky flavours, artfully crafted by binchotan, premium-grade charcoal celebrated for its purity and versatility. Indulge in delights like charcoal-seared tuna tataki or gyu karubi yaki, paired with refreshing beverages and cocktails inspired by the four elements. The Izakaya also features an upper mezzanine level for those seeking a more intimate dining experience.
Private Dining Rooms – On the second level, Kissuisen offers three distinct private dining rooms, each with a unique atmosphere with sleek décor. Delight in bento style lunches and ozen set dinners, featuring an array of authentic Japanese dishes, including sushi, grilled fish and pickled vegetables, all quintessential to Japanese cuisine.
Fire | ‘Kaen’ – For an interactive dining experience, ascend to the Teppanyaki restaurant on the third level. Here, the element of fire takes centre stage as skilled chefs flame-grill seasonal ingredients like Phuket lobster and Matsusaka Beef Sirloin right before your eyes.
Wind | ‘Seifu’ – On the fourth level is the Omakase restaurant, where diners can savour seasonal produce with a local twist. Chef Yuichi Mitsui transforms ingredients and fish market selections into exquisite courses. The restaurant’s intricate wall patterns are inspired by the gentle, year-round breeze, mirroring the craftsmanship of our hand-rolled delicacies.
Water | ‘Mizu’ – Conclude your evening with a nightcap at the outdoor sake bar, the first of its kind in Bangkok. Choose from a wide selection of rare and exclusive Japanese spirits, as pure and refined as the element of water, or savour special sake-based cocktails. Elevate your Kissuisen experience by pairing your drinks with decadent small fares from the snack menu.
Kissuisen at Bangkok Marriott Hotel The Surawongse promises an unparalleled fusion of Japanese elements, offering an exquisite journey through the ‘Godai’ elements of earth, fire, wind and water. You are invited to be part of an extraordinary culinary adventure that captures the very essence of Japanese culture.
