Breakfast Breakfast at the Okura Prestige Bangkok gives you the perfect start to any day. The buffet selection includes a fresh juice bar, egg station with daily specials, fruit, fresh pastries, cold cut corner, waffle and crepe station, tempting - yet healthy options and popular Asian specialities. An ice well chills the fresh fruit and juices; induction plates keep warm dishes at correct temperatures and a pastry oven ensures that our home-made breads are baked to perfection.

“I noticed an improvement”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014

I have stayed at the Okura Prestige before and was disappointed in the larger buffet offered at Up and Above. I chose to have the Bento breakfast at their fine Japanese restaurant instead. Well this time they cancelled that option. They have added more Japanese options to the buffet. The fruit section had a woman cutting and peeling my favorite fruits from papaya to passion fruit( the cutting or peeling of these fruits in not always an easy task. They have an egg menu as well as stations to grab many egg options. The breads war great as were the muffins and sweet choices.
There was still some confusion in getting the order right and when two orders for french toast came late( I only ordered one) I was a little disappointed in the fast of the beautiful looking toast - it was too moist inside. The sops and congee choices and condiments were great, I enjoyed the cereal choices also.
The views from this 24th floor restaurant are great. Staff and management were helpful and friendly. I feel the experience was much better then last year and feel with a little more time they will get if down to being a perfect experience.

“Average rooftop bar”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2013

The place locates in the middle of the city so you can reach there by the BTS (skytrain). The view is average and not as good as other rooftop bars that I've been. The price is a bit higher than I thought. If it's convenient for you and you don't care about what you pay so this might be a place for you to enjoy the night view of Bangkok.
