Bangkok has attracted tourists for a long time because of its beautiful atmosphere, exotic beaches and sumptuous food. You can find all types of cuisines in Bangkok – from local to international ones. No matter what kind of food you like, if you are a major foodie, Bangkok would never disappoint you. And especially if you are a Japanese cuisine lover, then you can also find a good Japanese restaurant in Bangkok who can serve real Japanese food in an ambience which is possibly no less than the ambience in Japan. Some restaurants even display wax replicas of the popular dishes which enhance the decor and simultaneously helps the foreign tourists who have no knowledge about Japanese food by showing the visual description of the style and main ingredients of the meal.
A good restaurant would always pay much attention to customer service besides serving lip smacking food. It would have attentive and helpful waiter services along with maintaining hygiene and choosing the best quality ingredients for preparing each dish. The set up of a good Japanese restaurant in Bangkok should also be very enticing yet calm and serene. It should also combine formal and a joyful aura while making the seating arrangement which should necessarily have a sushi bar, grill tables and teppanyaki rooms. There may also be arrangements for private rooms with conventional tatami seating. The menu should be large enough so that all types of customers can choose their preferences from it and contain some of the traditional dishes such as:
- Sushi which is the raw fish served on seasoned rice and can come with a myriad of flavours.
- Ramen is normally egg noodles, which are originally imported from China and the Japanese have made them delicious in their own style, and it is normally served with various soups like tonkatsu, Fukuoka or miso.
- Unagi is an authentic Japanese delicacy with eel fish grilled over charcoal and topped with barbeque sauce and this is available in any good Japanese restaurant in Bangkok in the months of May to October.
- Tempura which is light and crunchy batter coated and deep fried seafood or veggies in sesame oil.
- Soba is particularly the staple of Japanese cuisine, which includes thin buckwheat noodles served with shrimps.
- Tonkatsu is breaded and deep fried pork cutlet and there are many such tasty dishes served in Japanese restaurants.
They should make allowance for a la carte items, meals for lunch and dinner as well as buffet menus, which are gaining popularity these days.
Japanese cuisine is the second most popular cuisine among inhabitants of Bangkok after Thai cuisine, and this has caused a plethora of restaurants to serve authentic Japanese food with their major territory around Silom and Sukhumvit. These restaurants try to make the best possible endeavour to prepare and serve food of standard, matching those served normally in Tokyo or Osaka. Some of the restaurants even allow their customers to have a visual treat as well where they can see the meat or fish being grilled and cooked in front of them. The restaurants must have special menus for occasions besides having the provision for traditionally delectable Japanese food.
