Michael Ellis, International Director of the Michelin Guides, said: “Our inspectors were thrilled to find a local culinary scene with an amazing vibrancy, myriad new restaurants [and] an astonishing variety of wonderful street food.”

The Michelin Guide Bangkok 2018 features 98 restaurants, with three awarded the coveted two stars:

 — Gaggan, where the Chef-owner Gaggan Anand’s artful dishes feature a creative blend of textures and delicate spices.

 — Le Normandie in The Mandarin Oriental Hotel offers sophisticated French cuisine based on ingredients and techniques refined since the restaurant opened in 1958.

 — Mezzaluna on the 65th floor of the Lebua Hotel delivers European delights with Japanese precision in five- and seven-course set menus.

The Michelin Guide also awarded 14 restaurants one star, with seven of those offering Thai cuisine prepared by local chefs, such as at Chim by Siam Wisdom, Bo.lan and Saneh Jaan restaurants. Innovative modern Thai cuisine is also well represented with Sra Bua by Kiin Kiin and Jay Fai. Bangkok’s excellent international options were also recognized by Michelin with one-star establishments including Ginza Sushi ichi, the modern German restaurant Sühring and L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon’s contemporary French cuisine.

The guide also nominated a total of 28 street food stalls. See the full selection of the Michelin Guide Bangkok 2018, in English and Thai.
