Weekend hotel brunches have long been a mark of a life well lived in Bangkok, and to our delight, some of the best hotels in town have just launched brand-new brunch menus. Elegant, indulgent and utterly relaxed, these five over-the-top brunches will elevate your midday meal to another level. Grab a glass of Champagne — or two– and spend your Sunday in splendour with these delicious treats. After all, isn’t that what weekends are for?
Brunch at Marriott Café pulls inspiration from both authentic Thai cuisine and the classic British Sunday roast. Alongside a delicious array of Thai delights, brunch here features a dedicated som tam corner that highlights a different regional papaya salad every week. And to those who miss their traditional roast beef and Yorkshire pudding, look no further. Marriott Café’s carving station offers succulent roast sirloin and rib of beef, served with potatoes and all the trimmings. Of course, the menu also showcases a range of international favourites and seafood sensations, from handcrafted sushi to homemade pasta to fresh crêpes. Executive chef Kevin Thomson tells us that there will be more cooking stations coming up, and a build-your-own Bloody Mary bar is on the way.
When: Every Sunday, noon–3pm
Price: THB 1,990++ per person inclusive of soft drinks, coffee and tea; THB 1,400++ per person for additional free-flow bubbles or THB 990++ for free-flow wine
Up & Above
Although The Okura Prestige Bangkok is best-known for its omotenashi and Japanese flair, the menu at its beloved Sunday Champagne brunch spans the globe. Besides some of the freshest sushi and sashimi imported from Hokkaido, Up & Above also features a wide range of international dishes and made-to-order main courses. We suggest you kick-start your meal with fresh seafood on ice and decadent, pan-seared foie gras, then move on to their succulent lobster tails and Florentine steaks. There are all manner of breads, pastries, cheeses and of course, a matcha white chocolate fountain for that extra Japanese touch.

While you sip on bottomless bubbly against the evergreen backdrop of The Royal Bangkok Sports Club, the attentive staff will bring you your foie gras, duck confit and slow-roasted prime rib.

At Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok, Sunday brunch takes place in the opulent, lounge-style dining area of Tables Grill. With platters of chilled seafood and European charcuterie, a carving station and even an aromatic Champagne risotto station, the buffet spread is any bruncher’s dream come true. We also highly recommend ordering from the special à la carte menu, where the dishes are made with whatever ingredients are in season. Try their pan-fried foie gras on toasted brioche with a cherry compote, and creamy lobster Thermidor served with earthy morels. Be sure to pace yourself and save some room, because they’ve got an entire room dedicated to desserts, from freshly baked chocolate soufflés to velvet-smooth passion fruit panna cotta.
When: Every Sunday, 11am–3pm
Price: THB 3,999++ per person with free-flow Louis Roederer Champagne; THB 3,200++ per person for brunch and no beverage package
Embracing the bottomless-brunch concept with open arms, Brasserie Europa lets you savour its lavish Champagne brunch until 5pm. Siam Kempinski Hotel’s director of food and beverage Sébastian de Vizcaya tells us the hotel likes to give guests plenty of time to partake in the delicious food with family and friends in the most laid-back manner. From Australian beef tenderloin and New Zealand lamb to poached snow fish and Maine lobster tails, Brasserie Europa offers a wide selection of decadent delights. Other than Louis Roederer Brut Premier Champagne, we suggest you try their revamped selection of cocktails, such as the signature niche mojito and the famous Kempinski Bloody Mary.
