This short article will not do justice to the Okura Prestige Hotel’s Up & Above restaurant, one of three quality food and beverage outlets in this five-star hotel, but it will give you an idea, at least, of the type of quality that is available here in the Sukhumvit area on a regular basis. 
Located just off the Ploenchit BTS station (and therefore on the eastern frontier of our self-proclaimed Sukhumvit world) the Okura is a luxury hotel that offers some top-notch dining. Our recent visit to the all-day Up & Above restaurant — with its magnificent views which you can glimpse in the photo at right — provided us with a glimpse of the overall approach here. 
Our meal consisted of one of the new “combonation” dinner menus (pictured left) being offered at the restaurant that are set menus at three different price levels for different numbers of guests. The restaurant was accommodating enough to provide us this menu at lunch time as well, so we were able to sample some of the buffet items offered then. There’s also a Sunday brunch here and the overall theme at any of these offerings is quality food matched with great service.
The Okura Prestige is offering discriminating diners an attractive alternative to the many area restaurants that pay lip service to real quality and value that a top restaurant could and should be offering its guests.
