Tenkaichi Yakiton Nagiya

Japanese in Thanon Sukhumvit

Originating in Tokyo, this equal parts cosy and hectic eatery is one of Bangkok’s most popular izakayas, or Japanese tavern-style restaurants. The highlights here are the warming nabe, do-it-yourself hotpots, and the smokey yakitoshi, grilled skewers of meat. Expect lots of Japanese-style welcoming (some might call it shouting) by the staff, and on weekends, a queue.
