Banthat Thong goers are spoiled for choice when it comes to food due to all the affordable and fancy spots that take turns opening here. Adding to that juicy list is Kemuri, a Japanese beef specialist, boasting not only grilled marbled beef over rice but premium beef nabe (hot pot). 
Like its namesake, Kemuri—”smoke” in Japanese—prides itself on high quality beef, sliced and grilled over charcoal. The grilled beef don starts at B259, but we highly recommend you go a bit extra for the Kemuri grilled beef rice bowl (B590), featuring melt-in-your-mouth marbling served alongside hot spring egg and tea dashi you can pour over it to finish it as ochazuke.
Can’t eat beef? The venue also has the charcoal-grilled pork rice bowl (B239) as well. 
There’s also a hidden bar atop the building called Kodo, promising cocktails with Asian-inspired ingredients. 
1372 Rama VI Rd., Open Tue-Sun 5pm-midnight, 02-215-0866.
