Quality of ingredients and service are very important to us and this award will spur us on to greater heights."

About Yamazato Restaurant

Located on the 24th floor of the luxurious The Okura Prestige Bangkok, Yamazato has a well-deserved international reputation for consistent quality that never compromises the integrity of ingredients and flavour. In keeping with this fine tradition the restaurant offers truly authentic Japanese cuisine prepared and presented under the expert guidance of Master Chef Shigeru Hagiwara.

In addition to its award-winning cuisine, the beauty of Yamazato lies in its fine details, from a ceiling that mimics the intricate folds of crisp origami to the clever use of warm wood finishes. Waitresses wear traditional kimonos and every dish is presented in classic rustic earthenware.

The choice of cuisine at Yamazato is extensive and includes traditional Kaiseki Ry?ri set menus for dinner. Kaiseki cuisine dates back to the Japanese Imperial Court of the 9th century AD and has evolved into one of the world's most popular forms of dining. Dishes at Yamazato change with the seasons and the availability of ingredients, for example premium fresh seafood. The restaurant also celebrates a number of popular Japanese festivals throughout the year with special set menus and à la carte dishes.

About the Michelin Guide

The Michelin Guide came into being in 1889 when brothers Andre and Edouard Michelin founded their world-famous tyre company. To help motorists develop their trips - thereby boosting car and tyre sales in turn - the brothers produced a small red guide filled with handy information for travellers including maps, information on how to change a tyre and where to fill up with fuel. In the 1920s the guide began to list restaurants of special interest and recruited a team of mystery diners – or restaurant inspectors, as they are better known today – to visit and review restaurants anonymously. In 1926 the guide began to award stars to fine dining establishments, initially marking them only with a single star. Five years later, a hierarchy of zero, one, two, and three stars was introduced and in 1936 the criteria for the starred rankings were published. During the rest of 20th century, thanks to its serious and unique approach, the Michelin Guides became best-sellers: the guide now rates over 40,000 establishments in over 24 territories across three continents, and more than 30 million Michelin Guides have been sold worldwide since.
