Flow - Brunch On The River at the Millennium Hilton Bangkok

(Sunday) Brunch on the River at Millennium Hilton Bangkok

Slow roasted lamb loin from the FLOW restaurant
Sunday is a family day for many people of all races and backgrounds; local or expats.  Sunday is a good day to get together and do a family activity or go to a place to enjoy a nice lunch.  In western culture where Christians go to church every Sunday and families would enjoy a feast afterward.  For many it is their first meal but at lunch time.  So, this is where the concept of the Sunday Brunch came about.   Nowadays there are so many Sunday Brunch buffets at five-star hotels all across town. With the popularity among Thai families and local expatriates, the concept of Sunday Brunch has become even more advance; it is the evolution of Sunday brunch.  Many hotels are competing in coming up with their most extravagance feast and this is where we, as food reviewers would like to get involved. 

360 Three-sixty Lounge gives the picturesque view of the Sunday morning from the 32nd floor with the fancy cocktails  
The Millennium Hilton on the Charoennakorn road has just upgraded their Sunday Brunch with a concept of “SUNDAY BRUNCH ON THE RIVER@ FLOW.”  It all begins around 11am with the Pre-drink at the Three Sixty Lounge, where you will be sipping on fruity cocktails along with crisp and light snacks while overlooking the Chao Phraya river nearby and the panoramic view of Bangkok from the 32nd floor of the Millennium Hilton.  Just like the name Three Sixty, the lounge has spanning windows revolve to almost 360 degree around.  The drinks, the live piano, the view; what a great Sunday so far! 
The line buffet from the Maya Restaurant within the FLOW Brunch on the river concept
After the pre-drink and the appetizers, we were quite ready for the feast.  So, we worked our way down to the Flow, which is where the Sunday Brunch is happening.  Every week, the Millennium Hilton combines signature dishes from other restaurants in the hotel, which includes Prime Steakhouse, Maya, and Yuan, to create the massive buffet, the most overwhelming buffet experience I have ever encountered.  It is not easy to list all of the food presented in the buffet to all of you but here are some highlights at the Brunch.      

The cakes at the Lantern, a separate sweet shop by the river,
serving the biggest choices of dessert out of all Sunday Brunch in Bangkok

Mainly the Flow has the international choices ranges from raw salads to cold seafood; baked chicken to grilled sea scallop; baked oysters to roasted lamb.  This section of the buffet offers the greatest variety.  Suit yourself with your favorite picks.  The Prime Steakhouse is known to serve the top notch steaks in Bangkok.  At this quarter, they have Caesar salad made with ingredients of your request.  But the highlight is their premium cuts of red meat such as Roast prime rib, prime beef tartar.  Truffle fondue is a rare choice that is also available at the Prime Steakhouse section.   If you feel like having Thai specialties, the cooks from Maya will be serving you the local favorites like papaya salad, stir-fried, and curries.  For Dim Sum lovers, the Yuan, a Chinese restaurant of the Millennium Hilton will impress you with the Jumbo shrimp Shumai and the tasty BBQ pork.  We had a little of everything and food from the Prime Steakhouse impressed us the most.      

The food from Maya and Yuan may take some time to prepare, so you can order from the staffs and they will bring them right to your table when ready.  Other food selection in line buffet will be available for you to go back for more from noon until 4pm.  There will be plenty of time to cheer up with a few glass of wine from the bar.  There are a few choices of both red and white wine from several places like Australia, Chile, California, and France.   Behind the liquor bar is the Cheese room, where you will find various types of cheese properly kept in the temperate room (19 degree Celsius).   Well, we suggest not being at the Flow until 4pm because you will miss out the dessert heaven by the river, the Lantern.  Just adjacent to the Flow, the Lantern is pleasing sweet tooth people with over 20 choices of cakes, ice-cream teppanyaki, ice-cream spaghetti, chocolate tidbits, and more.  After a quick mingle in the dessert heaven, we headed to the patio seating outdoor with a hand full of delightful desserts to enjoy near the river.  Many loving couples would look a romantic occasion like this.  For families, this is where the kids would go wild. 
The Millennium Hilton is offering the one of a kind feast every single Sunday from 11am – 4pm.  The price is 1,999 baht net and 2,999 baht net with free flow wine and sparkling.  Stir up your lazy Sunday with your friends and loved ones at the “SUNDAY BRUNCH ON THE RIVER@FLOW.”  You will be surprised with today’s trend of Sunday brunch extravaganza.
