For adventurous eaters who are always on the lookout for something new. Above Eleven takes pride in being the first rooftop Peruvian-Japanese restaurant in South East Asia. The decor is just electic as the food: custom-designed structural trees, a maze in the entrance era, even the bathrooms are observatories of Bangkok’s skyline! Due to a high Japanese population in Peru, Peruvian-Japanese is one of the fastest growing fusion categories, and Above Eleven is one of the pioneers. Dishes center on Nikkei cuisine, and most dishes are served in small tapas portions so guests can experience the range of  flavors and styles offered in the menu.

Located inside Swissotel, the quality of the food and service is consistent with the hotel’s high standards. Be sure to leave room at the end for the signature milk and cheese pudding - a must try even for those who aren’t big lovers of diary!
