When on the search for high-quality Japanese food there are luckily lots of great options in the city of Bangkok, Thailand. On my annual trip to the city, I checked out the KiSara Restaurant inside of the Conrad Bangkok Hotel. Read about my hotel stay here. KiSara is very proud that they are the only supplier in Bangkok of Hida Beef which comes from Gifu Prefecture in Japan. This is a high-end beef with a grade of A5, which is the top of the top! The Japanese chef at KiSara hails from Osaka and puts his own twists on Japanese cuisine.
The interior design throughout KiSara Restaurant was gorgeous and very calming. I got to enjoy the meal in one of the several private dining rooms the restaurant has.
For the evening, I tried the Hida Beef Set Menu which included many amazing items. To get started, there were was a refreshing salad that was quite tasty with its delightful dressing. Up next was a very notable plate of sashimi, the tuna being my favorite with lots of fat!
An item that was not on the set menu, but also very delicious was the Eel Kamameshi, which is Japanese-style risotto.
It was time for the main event which was the A5 Hida Wagyu. As you can tell from the photos, there is lots of marbling on this beautiful piece of meat. I enjoyed it with a small bottle of sake from the Katoukichibee Shouten Brewery. I never wanted the meat to end, but soon all the bites were gone and I was left longing for more!
Things were wrapping up but there was still Japanese fried rice that was a nice balance to everything else I had consumed.
For the dessert there was a mango jelly with ice cream and fresh fruit. I loved it!
The service throughout the meal was warm and attentive. This meal was practically flawless! I loved absolutely every item and can’t wait to return again, especially for the legendary Hida Beef! Thank you KiSara. This is a must visit in Bangkok!
