The management of The Okura Prestige Bangkok is pleased to announce that its signature Japanese restaurant Yamazato has once again been awarded the Michelin Plate designation in the Michelin Guide Thailand, Michelin Guide 2019 Bangkok, Phuket and Phang-nga.

At Yamazato in Bangkok, Master Chef Shigeru Hagiwara and his team create authentic Japanese cuisine including traditional Kaiseki Ry?ri set menus, outstanding teppanyaki, sushi and sashimi offerings and an extensive à la carte menu.

Commenting on the award Mr. Edward E. Snoeks, General Manager of The Okura Prestige Bangkok, said, "To be recognised by the Michelin Guide for two years consecutive is a great honour. Yamazato, our signature Japanese restaurant, also has a well-deserved international reputation for the integrity of its ingredients and its flavours. This award is an affirmation of the commitment of Chef Shigeru and his teams to deliver cuisine of a consistently high quality."

The signature Japanese restaurant across many Okura hotels and resorts, Yamazato at The Okura Prestige Bangkok earned a spot in BK Magazine's Top Tables Bangkok 2017 and is a regular in the annual Thailand Tatler's Best Restaurants Guide. It is the definitive traditional Japanese restaurant where the quality of each dish is matched by attention to detail in its preparation and presentation. Chef Shigeru Hagiwara said, "I am very pleased for our team. To receive this acknowledgement from Michelin shows that we are creating a dining experience and dishes that delight our patrons. 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.
