At Sambal Bar & Grill, understated worldliness gets a sensuous and friendly Southeast Asian welcome in a hip urban oasis with show kitchen and spacious terrace, for dining on freshly grilled meats and unsurpassed sweet and savory sauces along the Chao Phraya River. Sambal countryside-inspired Southeast Asian décor features wood furnishings and modern accents, plus screened nooks for intimate dining or business conversations. On the L-shaped, wrap-around terrace with comfortable rattan seating and colorful accents, guests can bask in the sunset over signature cocktails from the riverside Sambal Bar while relaxing to sultry world beats.
Popular in the cuisine of Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, and Southern Thailand, the chili paste known as "sambal" is the inspiration for the restaurant's name as well as the many influences at its heart. Journey through Southeast Asia in a setting where prime steaks, fresh fish, and the finest seafood are expertly charcoal grilled in a "center stage" open kitchen. A variety of accompaniments compliment each selection, including—of course—sambals, plus chutneys, exotic curry and pepper sauces, and more. Twice-cooked, spiced pork ribs and pan-fried, marinated tiger prawns and scallops with grilled chili and lime sambal are among the specialties.
Sambal offers a private dining area for dinner parties—and the entire restaurant can be turned an exclusive venue with unmatched food and drinks plus music and dancing to the music from Bali to London and New York.
Reservations are recommended.
