Introducing NóMADA Pool Lounge Bangkok: A live fire casual restaurant with soul
NóMADA Pool Lounge Bangkok: A live fire casual restaurant with soul
● Nómada Pool Lounge Bangkok serves coastal cuisine inspired by the countries of South America, with a strong focus on local ingredients and choice cuts of imported beef.
● Local delicacies and indigenous produce meet traditional South American cooking methods, such as open flame techniques, for explosive flavours on and off the grill.
About the restaurant:
Inspired by South American indigenous cuisine – and taking its name from nomadic hunters, gatherers, and fishers that sustainably live off the land – Nómada offers a unique coastal dining experience interpreted through the distinctive tastes of vibrant Thai ingredients.
Continuing the mouthwatering success of the first Nómada restaurant at Dusit Thani Hua Hin resort, Nómada Pool Lounge Bangkok brings this exciting dining experience to the heart of the capital – this time a lively al fresco poolside setting within Dusit’s elegant standalone restaurant venue, Baan Dusit Thani, on Sala Daeng Road.
Diners can order a la carte, opt for special set menus (starting at only THB 999++ per person – see below), or even simply drop by for drinks. Alongside craft beers, fine wines, healthy juices, and classic cocktails, there are plenty of unique concoctions to choose from, including signature cocktails specially created to pair with Chef Andre’s distinctive flavorsome fare.
With its serene garden setting, Nómada Bangkok provides a relaxed and inviting atmosphere for families and friends to enjoy leisurely lunches, dinners, and brunches, all while relishing unforgettable flavours from both land and sea.
Locally caught fish, premium meats, fresh seasonal harvests, and artisanal products feature prominently on the menu. Chef Andre and his team use this delectable produce to create authentic South American dishes perfect for sharing, as well as creative small plates and tapas – all at excellent value for money.
Highlights of the small plates and tapas selection, which starts at just THB 350++, include Calamares fritos (Fried battered squid, house-made tartar sauce); Fish and shrimp tiradito (Fresh sea bass, grilled river prawns, Chilean yellow chilli sauce, chives, pebre condiments); Beef tartare (House-smoked beef fillet, local spices, soy-cured egg, avocado mousse, milk emulsion); Rock lobster in Chilean sauce (deglazed with white wine); Fresh oysters with condiments (Normandy oysters no.3, salmon roe, smoked herring pearl caviar); Ceviche with mango; and Nómada wanton cones.
The Ceviche is a great example of the bold and fresh flavours offered at Nómada. Originating from Peru, this renowned dish is made from fresh sea bass cured in lime juice and served with a delicious medley of mango, spices, celery, ginger, shallots, and coriander.
The signature Nómada wanton cones, featuring three different crispy tartare cones – including Salmon with soy and sesame oil; Shrimp with house-made mayonnaise and crispy quinoa; and Crab with avocado brunoise – demonstrates the lush layering of textures that further delight the taste buds.
More flavor comes from the open fire grill, where a wide range of meat, seafood and sides are carefully cooked over dry, seasoned wood, infusing each morsel with earthy, umami goodness.
The premium cuts of beef slow-cooked Picanha, Ribeye, Tenderloin and generous servings of half-chicken, whole red snapper, and Indian Ocean Octopus are ideal for sharing and very reasonably priced, with mains starting at just THB 550++. These can be teamed with sides such as Grilled organic vegetables; South American-style corn purée (Corn Tamales) grilled in a banana leaf; Mashed potatoes; and Sautéed baby carrots with crispy garlic, walnuts, and coriander sauce (starting at only THB 180++).
Dessert offerings are thoughtfully curated to align with the changing seasons. Guests can also indulge in a delectable array of sweets from the neighboring Dusit Gourmet.
Made using fresh and wholesome fruits, herbs and botanicals, Nómada’s beverage offerings include guilt-free and therapeutic pleasures as well as creative cocktails bursting with tropical flavours.

● PIÑA PALOMA
Vodka, peach schnapps, agave nectar, lemon, pineapple, mint (THB 330++)
