This July, Tsu Japanese Restaurant at JW Marriott Bangkok celebrates its 20th anniversary. Established in 2004 and still fresh, Tsu has been a cornerstone of Japanese cuisine in Bangkok, renowned for its unwavering commitment to quality and innovation.


To commemorate this achievement, Tsu will take guests on a unique five-month culinary adventure, inviting them to experience Japanese cuisine through the lens of the five senses – sight, smell, hearing, taste and touch – with the exclusive ‘5 Senses’ menu series.

The celebration, beginning in July and extending through November 2024, will also showcase the restaurant’s new à la carte menu under the expert guidance of its newly appointed Japanese Head Chef, Atsushi Yoshida, who oversees the culinary operations at Tsu Japanese Restaurant, Nami Teppanyaki Steakhouse and Chisana Nami at Erawan Bangkok.


Alongside Chef Yoshida’s arrival comes the launch of a brand-new à la carte menu, showcasing his expertise in sushi, kaiseki and teppanyaki.
