My workplace arranged team dinner here for the promotion of my boss. We sat indoor but I went to check outdoor, the seat was amazing. I would try to come with my husband for sure in the future. Beside the view, food tasted good and service was flawless. Recommend! :)

There were mixed reviews about this restaurant, but we returned during our stay as I found the meals and service were excellent. Fresh rolls of varied type, oils and dips, were all of a high standard, and the mains, Italian for our first visit, Thai for our second, were equally enjoyable, well presented and full of flavour. The restaurant was not at all busy, and perhaps it's quite new and not quite on the radar for diners, but I would certainly return. A huge space, well appointed, adding to the sense of occasion.

Up & Above is like the name says: On the 24th Floor of the Okura Prestige Hotel Bangkok with a fabulous panoramic view of downtown Bangkok. This spacious dining room has a good buffet at lunchtime.
I say good but not great and, in the end, kind of forgettable. While the Western and Thai dishes were quite good, nothing really stood out. My pasta was cooked in a kind of mild tomato-based sauce that was flavorless and not al dente. The grilled mackerel in lobster sauce was a delight. The pork in gravy was nice with strong herbs. The sashimi was fresh but severely limited with only two types. The cold cuts and salad bar were somewhat blah. The desserts were the highlight, with great cakes, mousses and chocolates. Overall, the variety was not there. The buffet here cannot match up with a lot of other five-star hotels in the city. Too bad because I thought many dishes showed great promise.
Service here is outstanding. Waiters were relaxed, smiling and quick to clear and set tables.
Up & Above is the sort of place for a special evening but not first and foremost if you are looking for a vast buffet spread that will make you salivate.

Nice cosy place for a glass of wine, coctai or light dinner, to sit in a soft armchair and make intelligent talks from above of the central Bangkok's skyscraper :))
