Diners can now embark on a new culinary adventure with the opening of Chisana Nami at the newly refurbished Erawan Bangkok, steps away from the famed Erawan Shrine. Reflecting the experience of the acclaimed Nami Teppanyaki Steakhouse at JW Marriott Bangkok, the new restaurant promises an immersive dining experience for the senses.


Chisana Nami, meaning ‘Small Wave’ in Japanese, draws inspiration from the harmonious fusion of fire and waves, offering a distinctive teppanyaki experience that prepares fresh seafood, meats and vegetables with authentic flair and a modern twist. The restaurant’s zen interior boasts a sleek, contemporary design with a sophisticated ambience. The space is characterised by a monochromatic colour palette is accented by the warm tones of wood and leather chairs around a stylish marble counter.

Whether you seek a romantic evening or a celebratory dinner with friends, Chisana Nami caters to every occasion. The restaurant offers a variety of seating options, including a sake bar and three dedicated dining areas, each accommodating up to 16 guests. For a truly exclusive experience, two private teppanyaki dining rooms, each seating 10 guests, provide a perfect venue for intimate gatherings or business dinners.


Behind the culinary magic is the chef duo of Panumas Chaisalee and Watchara Watthanasiri. The former, a teppanyaki expert, started his journey at Nami Teppanyaki Steakhouse at JW Marriott Bangkok. He honed his skills in various teppanyaki restaurants across London, Liverpool, Ho Chi Minh and Khao Lak. His talent was recognised when he was crowned the winner of Iron Chef Vietnam in 2012. Chef Watchara started his career at Benihana in Bangkok before moving to work at teppanyaki restaurants in Liverpool and Manchester.
