Rooftop Restaurant in Bangkok
Situated in the Sukhumvit area, off Soi 11 (hence the name) is the popular Above Eleven rooftop restaurant in Bangkok on the 33rd floor of the Fraser Suites. The restaurant and bar were busy with a lively atmosphere and a saxophonist. It was a classy venue without being too pretentious.
Cocktails on the Rooftop
We booked a table overlooking Bangkok with views towards Siam and the shopping malls. To get the night started, we kicked off with a couple of cocktails. We had the Cuzco With Love: Bacardi Ocho Rum, Noilly Prat, Edible Rose Flower, Giffard Raspberry, Dry Roses, Angostura Bitter, Pineapple & Lemon Juice. It was beautifully presented and refreshing without being too sweet. We also sampled the Rohito: Grey Goose Vodka, Watermelon Liqueur, Passion Fruit Juice & Giffard Vanilla.
Our eyes lit up at the desserts offered at Above Eleven. We tried the Churros With Chocolate Sauce: Crispy cinnamon sugar coated churros, chocolate sauce and the Peruvian Alfajor: majarblanco, milk ice cream, cinnamon crumble. The churros were absolutely fantastic with a decent amount of chocolate sauce. The Peruvian Alfajor was so sweet, smooth and moreish and is definitely a dish I want to try more of in London.
Given Above Eleven Bangkok is a Peruvian / Japanese restaurant and bar, we had to try the sake. With over 10 quality sakes to choose from, we were recommended the lighter, more citrus based ones, to compliment our desert. Served with a mini sake cup and jug, typically Japanese style, the sakes were light and refreshing. They were certainly much better than some of the ones I drank in Japan!
Above Eleven is a gorgeous rooftop restaurant in Bangkok absolutely worth a visit. With salsa nights on Wednesdays and a Jazz Band on Thursday’s it offers something a little bit different. The great food, views, cocktails and staff, make Above Eleven a winning combination.
