Banyan Tree Phuket launches new Japanese restaurant ‘Taihei’ featuring Master Chef Shiraishi

Banyan Tree Phuket resort has announced the opening of its newest restaurant “Taihei”, featuring Japanese gourmet cuisine and headed by Master Chef Shiraishi.

Press Release

Thursday 7 December 2017, 09:44AM


Set amidst the serene spa and pool zone, guests can enjoy exquisite Japanese cuisine by veteran Chef Shiraishi, whose skills have been nurtured over 40 years of experience.

The name “Taihei” originates from the Japanese word for “peace” and its tranquil setting alongside the Banyan Tree Spa and main swimming pool is the perfect complement to a satisfying meal.

The restaurant’s two wings are on either side of the pool, offering diners a refreshing experience as they indulge in authentic Japanese cuisine.

With the all-new completely redesigned space, expanded menu and exquisite new sushi bar, the elegant and relaxing Taihei restaurant will replace Banyan Tree Phuket’s beloved Tamarind restaurant.

Taihei will hold its grand opening during the third week of December, and will invite guests to try new activities such as a sushi making and other master classes as part of the relaunch celebration, along with some of the restaurant’s signature dishes.

In keeping with the Banyan Tree philosophy of delighting guests with exceptional quality, the new restaurant will only seat 35 diners at a time.

Taihei uses only the finest ingredients, while a contemporary Asian design in a naturally soothing environment makes for a great sensory and culinary experience for guests.

QSI International School Phuket

Taihei’s patron Chef Shiraishi is a native of Kumamoto on Kyushu Island. He began his culinary journey at the age of 10, helping his parents in their family restaurant.  At age 19, Shiraishi became an apprentice chef in Osaka before becoming a fully qualified sushi chef.

As artist-in-residence for Banyan Tree Phuket’s resort, Shiraishi now oversees the preparation of a sensational range of sashimi and sushi grade seafood, as well as Yakimono and other traditional dishes.

He will also share his impressive culinary skills with guests through the restaurant’s special sushi-making class, where amateur chefs can learn the basics in a friendly and relaxed environment.

Although Japanese cuisine is available on the island, Taihei’s hallmark will be authenticity and quality complimented by Banyan Tree’s legendary service.
