New Robata Grill menu introduced at Bangkok offshoot of global Akira Back restaurant collection
April 30th, 2019
Internationally celebrated Korean-American chef Akira Back launched the Bangkok offshoot of his self-named Akira Back restaurants in December 2017. Acclaimed for his innovative fusion of Korean and American influences into traditional Japanese cuisine, his global assemblage of 18 restaurants include locations across Asia, North America, and the Middle East. In Bangkok, the Akira Back restaurant is located on the top floor of the Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park – presenting the chef’s signature combination of sophisticated modern Asian dining with spectacular views across Bangkok.
Within the Akira Back restaurant guests can choose between a variety of dining experiences with the venue offering a sushi station, omakase bar, private rooms, and the newly launched robata grill station. The spacious layout exudes a contemporary Asian sophistication with a decor that melds black marble counters, dark timbers, and elegant furnishings – highlighted with signature references such as the Shinto rope accented ceilings.
Complementing the expansive a la carte menu that comprises sushi and sashimi, signature rolls, and main dishes for sharing, the new Robata Bar menu offers a selection of traditional Japanese charcoal grill dishes – elevated with premium ingredients and the hallmark Korean-American influences of chef Black. Among standout signature dishes are the A5 Kagoshima wagyu beef with Yuzu Kosho and Maldon salt; Scallop in Half Shell with Kimchi bacon and Kochujang; and King Crab Legs with Dynamite sauce, and Micro Cilantro. Other specialties of the Robata grill include the traditional-style skewers of yakitori chicken and fresh vegetables, plus meat dishes such as the Pork Baby Back Ribs and Lamb Chop.
Beverages available include a selection of fine sake, plus Japanese, American and Korean craft beers – and a well-curated wine list.
Akira Back opens daily from 6 pm, plus on Sunday a lunch menu is served between midday and 2:30 pm.
