The warm and welcoming space delights guests with its interactive open kitchen concept, transforming Bangkok’s hottest new venue as the evening progresses. Outside tables overlook a stunning backdrop of the city skyline.

    There is also a strong French element in the Sofitel’s restaurant, Voilà! The hotel’s premier restaurant showcases a ‘cuisines on stage’ concept that features French cuisine prepared from stoves and a Parisian-style Rôtisserie, Western, Asian dishes, Middle Eastern and Thai delicacies, aromatic pizzas straight from the wood-fired oven, and an array of sumptuous desserts available all day.
