Japanese: Japanese cuisine and buffets do not often mix well, usually sacrificing quality for quantity, something that might be said about buffets in general. Yet Takumi proves a pleasant exception to the rule. If you are looking to eat a hearty meal in a pleasant environment, this large restaurant, located upstairs in the stylish Swissotel Le Concorde, is the place to come. There is a great variety on the Takumi buffet menu, all the more reason to dine here. It's not just sushi and sashimi, although there is plenty of tuna and salmon to glut fresh fish lovers. The soba noodles are outstanding, there is oden stew, all sorts of pickled and seaweed salads, grilled yakitori dishes, grilled fish, just about every item across Japanese cuisine is covered. At this quality and price, Takumi never disappoints and is always crowded.
Local Expert Dave Stamboulis Says:
Japanese: "Slightly off the main tourist track, best way to get to Takumi is to take the MRT Subway to Huay Kwang station. Exiting the station, look south for the tall Swissotel building, and Takumi is located upstairs."
Best for Japanese Because: For an all you can eat Japanese buffet, Takumi tops Bangkok's go to list.
