On April 21, 2017 it was announced that the Michelin guide would come to Bangkok. The organization has selected a total of 98 restaurants for its first edition, of which seventeen are single or double starred.
Gaggan, is an Indian restaurant where the chef offers many typical dishes in a unique style. They all have a secret mixture of texture, spices, and style that only he can present. Le Normandie, located in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, also gets two stars. Spearheading French cuisine in Bangkok, its dishes are sophisticated based on sublime ingredients, refined techniques, and perfect combinations of flavors and textures. Also receiving two stars is the Mezzaluna Restaurant located on the 65th floor of the Lebua Hotel. The chef and his staff produce delicious European dishes with Japanese precision, in menus comprising between five and seven dishes for a interestingly varied tasting.
Fourteen restaurants in the capital of Thailand get one star, in a desire to highlight the quality of traditional Thai cuisine. Seven of these establishments offer Thai cuisine prepared by local chefs, such as Chim by Siam Wisdom, where the chef revisits traditional Thai recipes to create dishes that balance tradition with modernity. Bo.lan also gets a star, as does Saneh Jaan, the latter offering Thai dishes that mix classics and rare recipes like kaeng ranjuan, a hot spicy soup. However, the more modern Thai cuisine was also rewarded, especially at Sra Bua by Kiin Kiin, which respects Thai flavors and ingredients but turns them into original and truly creative dishes. A street food cook called Jay Fai also gets a star for her stall.
