What happens when you combine premium Japanese ingredients with classic French cooking techniques? Two Michelin stars, and an innovative culinary experience you won’t find anywhere else. Chef Ryuki Kawasaki’s culinary philosophy is simple: when you start with the finest ingredients in the world, you don’t need to do much to make them shine.
Because the finest ingredients are the freshest ingredients, Chef Ryuki’s five- and seven-course tasting menus change with the seasons—with one exception. The menu’s only staple: his specialty wagyu beef, called “Exceptional Murakami” because it comes from a small breed of top-quality calves from his hometown in Niigata Prefecture. The calves are raised only on rice, straw and hay, plus a mixture of carefully selected compound feed. The result is exquisitely marbled, melt-in-your-mouth beef that you can only find in Japan—or here at Mezzaluna.
Chef Ryuki applies the same exacting care to sourcing each ingredient in every plate at Mezzaluna—from oysters to truffles to tea—many of them exclusive to Mezzaluna.
It’s the same care that goes into preparing each dish, to stocking our world-class wine cellar and to providing stellar service—ensuring that you have the meal of a lifetime.
Mezzaluna means ‘half moon,’ and here you feel like you could just about reach out and touch it. On the 65th floor of State Tower, Mezzaluna is the crown jewel of our vertical destination. With double-height windows surrounding the crescent-shaped dining room, each table offers the best views in Bangkok—not to mention its fine food. It’s all enough to leave you moonstruck.
After working in some of the world’s best kitchens, Chef Ryuki Kawasaki joined lebua in 2015 after being offered the opportunity to create something truly unique. “My background was in classic French cuisine,” he says. “But at Mezzaluna I was given complete creative freedom. I wanted to use it to offer guests a completely new gourmet dining experience.”
“At Mezzaluna I’ve been offered the opportunity to give free reign to my passion and creativity. Many chefs go their entire careers without being given this kind of freedom, so I’m grateful.”Ryuki Kawasaki , Chef de Cuisine
To do this, Ryuki looked to his Japanese roots: “Some of the highest quality produce in the world comes from Japan. So I’ve created an innovative and original menu that fuses the richness, flavors and incredible textures of French cuisine with the simplicity, exquisite presentation and subtle nuances of Japan.” His hard work hasn’t gone unnoticed—under his leadership, Mezzaluna was awarded two Michelin stars in 2018.
People are talking about Mezzaluna. Here are some of the many honors we’ve received from the media and award-granting bodies.
