One of Bangkok's most buzzing Japanese izakaya restaurants is opening another branch. Teppen, the wood-heavy home-away-from-home for displaced Tokyoites in Ekkamai, will bring its drink-friendly tavern vibes to Sathorn.

The new location will be just a skip and a jump from BTS Chong Nonsi on Sathorn Soi 8 and is slated to open in mid-August.  

In our 2016 review of Teppen, we called it "one of Bangkok's most warm and soulful izakaya experiences," and praised its lengthy menu of sashimi, Kyoto-style kushiage (deep-fried everything, basically) and robatayaki (charcoal barbecue) designed to be paired with an ice-cold Asahi, ginger highball or full bottle of sake.

The new branch will open from 5pm-midnight for after-work high jinks. Starting November it'll also open for lunch.
