The results are in! The Michelin Guide, the world’s most prestigious gastronomy bible, has revealed their 2022 list for Bangkok. For the very first time, due to the current health crisis, the Michelin Star Revelation ceremony was held virtually via live streaming on its official Facebook page and YouTube channel on 16 December 2021.

Despite the lack of an actual ceremony, the fifth serving of the Michelin Guide Thailand still built up excitement among epicures, who were eager to see which restaurants in the country retained, lost or were granted stars.

This year, restaurants in the ancient capital city of Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya were also judged, in addition to dining establishments in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket and Phang-Nga. This is in line with the objective to promote the province as another “remarkable gastro-tourism” destination in the kingdom.

To cut to the chase, here are the restaurants that made it to the Michelin Guide Thailand 2022 edition. Virtual applause went to one-star keepers, namely 80/20, Blue by Alain Ducasse, Cadence by Dan Bark, Canvas, Chim by Siam Wisdom, Elements, Ginza Sushi Ichi, J'aime by Jean-Michel Lorain, Jay Fai, Khao (Ekkamai), Le Du, Methavalai Sorndaeng, Nahm, Paste, Pru, Saawaan, , Saneh Jaan, Savelberg, Sra Bua by Kiin Kiin, Suan Thip, and Sushi Masato.

Meanwhile, Chef's Table, Le Normandie, Mezzaluna, R.HAAN, Sorn, and Sühring were able to retain their two-star accolade.

Like in previous years, there were surprises along the way. Legendary David Thompson's Aksorn, Côte by Mauro Colagreco at Capella Bangkok, IGNIV Bangkok at The St. Regis Bangkok, and Yu Ting Yuan at Four Seasons Bangkok made their debut with a one-star recognition, whereas Gaa by Chef Garima Arora re-entered the one-star family after the relocation last year.

Nevertheless, Bo.lan was the only restaurant dropped from the list as a result of its closure earlier this year.

Once again, the elusive three-star recognition was not bestowed on any restaurant in Thailand.

The Michelin Guide continues to expand its coverage, doling out recognitions like the Michelin Guide Young Chef Award, which went to Chef Garima Arora from Gaa, and the Michelin Guide Service Award, given to Mr. Thibaud Charlemarty from Côte by Mauro Colagreco.

In recognition of their sustainability-advocating efforts, the Michelin Green Star, once again, went to Phuket's Pru.

Huge congratulations to all the restaurants and those receiving honors from the Michelin Guide this year. Keep up the good work!
