The results are in. Seven of Bangkok's fine-dining ventures make 2020’s cut of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants.
The award ceremony of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, the region’s affiliate to The World’s 50 Best Restaurants sponsored by San Pellegrino and Acqua Pana—the high-end sparkling and still water—was announced virtually on Facebook live on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants Facebook page. The event had been scheduled to occur in Saga Prefecture in Japan but was cancelled due to novel coronavirus pandemic.
Sühring, the progressive German restaurant run by the Sühring brothers, claimed the 6th spot, while Le Du, innovative Thai restaurant by celebrity chef Thitid “Ton” Tassanakajohn, sees a dramatic climb, awarded the 8th spot in the list. Gaa, a creative Indian restaurant by chef Garima Arora who won Best Female Chef award last year, is now placed at No. 15.
