The Dinner in the Sky event has been held in more than 45 countries.

BANGKOK -- Diners in the Thai capital will soon be able to raise their culinary experience to a new level, when novelty restaurant service Dinner in the Sky starts offering its event from Dec. 20.

The service uses a huge crane to raise a dinner table and up to 22 seated guests, along with a chef and two waiters, to a height of about 50 meters. A four-course meal is served over about an hour, including appetizer, soup, main dish and dessert.

Dinner in the Sky was first launched in Brussels in 2006, and has been been offered in more than 45 countries. Bangkok is the second city in Southeast Asia to have the experience, after Kuala Lumpur. 

The event will be held until the end of January over the Emporium luxury shopping mall in central Bangkok. The dinner will be prepared by the Sheraton Grande Sukhumvit hotel, and costs from 4,990 baht to 5,390 baht ($153 to $165) per person.
