Restaurant’s new weekend feast features some of the finest seafood in Bangkok
SOFITEL Bangkok Sukhumvit’s popular all-day-dining restaurant, Voilà!, has long been one of our favourite spots for a veritable all-you-can-eat feast. Featuring a sumptuous buffet spread, several live cooking stations, and an a la carte menu offering home-style French recipes, the range and quality of dishes on offer never fails to impress.
Visit on a Friday and Saturday night and the selection is now even better, thanks to the restaurant’s brand new ‘Seafood Night Market Buffet’ – a fabulous banquet highlighting premium crustaceans, salmon canapés, crab bisque soup, organic salads, a la minute sushi and sashimi, and a vast array of seafood on ice.
The maritime bounty ranges from Mediterranean sea urchins and freshly shucked oysters (including Fine de Claire Marennes d’Oléron, Belon and Mediterranean Bouzigues) to succulent Alaskan king crabs, langoustines, crayfish, river prawns, Hokkaido scallops and more.
Each table receives a half Phuket lobster and a half Canadian lobster roasted perfectly in garlic butter, and there are many other dishes you can order, too, such as Sautéed scallops and prawns Provençal; Fried seabass with yellow capsicum sauce; as well as salmon, red grouper, sea bass, red snapper, barracuda, squid, and tiger prawns – all boiled, fried, grilled or roasted to your preference.
Alongside all the seafood you can expect to enjoy some wonderful artisan cheeses and premium charcuterie from ‘La Fromagerie,’ a temperature controlled room which also boasts over 250 international wines. And there are some great desserts on offer, including delectable French pastries, homemade sorbets and gelatos, and a too-good-to-miss chocolate fountain.
The Seafood Night Market Buffet is great value at just B1,950 per person (half price for children aged 6 – 12). Beverage packages are available starting at B250 per person inclusive of free flow soft drinks, juices and coffee and tea. Advance booking is recommended.
