• The restaurant Gaggan was voted the best restaurant in Asia in 2017 by the controversial World's 50 Best Restaurants In the World. It was also recently awarded two stars in the famous Michelin Guide.

    Is Gaggan the best restaurant in Asia? It's too vast a question to answer in our humble opinion, but we do know something: Gaggan's chef, Gaggan Anand, is one of the most provocative, progressive, creative and entertaining chefs working today on the high-end dining scene of the world.

    Not only does Gaggan Anand offer great food, he offers his guests a total experience, a journey through modern Indian cuisine in 25 emojis. He creatively combines Thai produces and Indian flavors to present us with a colorful and savory collection of small bites in quick succession through the 25 courses.

    It's really worth making a reservation a long time in advance and even buying a plane ticket to Bangkok just to experience the outstanding innovative Indian cuisine that you will not get anywhere else.

    We had a memorable evening there on December 27th 20017 with family and friends, from the beginning to the end; from our French host to the wine, from the cocktails to the food, every moment was amazing and fun.

    Diners should rush to Gaggan asap as they will only have another two years to taste the progressive Indian cooking as the chef has made a decision to close his restaurant in 2020 in order to open a new dining concept in Fukuoka, Japan.

    Gaggan Anand and the likes of him (namely André Chiang in Singapore, Paul Pairet in Shanghai, Alvin Lueng in Hong Kong, Yoshihiro Narisawa in Tokyo and Eneko Atxa in Bilbao) are redefining what high dining should be - A total experience of the six senses.

  • Issaya Siamese Club is the flagship of the chef Ian Kittichai who is a celebrity chef in Thailand.

    With our friends and family, we decided to celebrate our Christmas dinner at his beautiful colonial mansion. Our table was set in the garden with candlelights, which gave us a feeling of intimacy and the privilege of dining at a friend's house.

    Our whole table agreed on the set menu, priced at 1500++ Bath (45 euros) per person, which offered three starters, four main courses, a pre-dessert and a dessert.

    The amuse-bouche and the three starters were indeed very tasty and very good, Ian Kittichai knows how to balance his spices and make the best of them in his dishes. The chef takes pride in the fact that all his ingredients are locally sourced and organic.

    His main dishes (the Sankaburee Chicken; the Mussaman Lamb; the Prawn Star-Fried and Asian Multi-Grain&Chiang Mai Mushroom) were really delicious and full of flavors.

    And finally, our dessert, the Jasmin Flower Panna Cotta was nothing short of a knock-out.

    We were surprised that the Michelin Guide for it first edition in Bangkok this year bypassed chef Ian Kittchai and forgot to reward Issaya Siamese Club with the first star it so rightly deserves.

    La Thaïlande, en forme longue le Royaume de Thaïlande, en thaï Pratet Thaïประเทศไทย et Ratcha Anachak Thaiราชอาณาจักรไทย, est un pays d’Asie du Sud-Est dont le territoire couvre 514 000 km². Avant 1939, il s’appelait le Royaume de Siam. Il est bordé à l’ouest par la Birmanie, au sud par la Malaisie, à l’est par le Cambodge et au nord-est par le Laos. C’est une monarchie constitutionnelle depuis 1932.

    Sa capitale est Bangkok (Krungthep - กรุงเทพฯ, la Cité des anges). La langue officielle est le thaï et la monnaie le baht.


    La culture de la Thaïlande est profondément imprégnée par le bouddhisme theravâda, religion officielle et pratiquée par presque toute la population (4 % de musulmans et moins de 1 % de chrétiens). Une grande part des arts — peinture, sculpture, architecture, danse et musique — subit cette influence et est au service des représentations traditionnelles du bouddhisme et de ses dérivés. Conformément aux enseignements de Bouddha, les moines pratiquent l’ascétisme. Tous les matins, ils vont chercher leur nourriture auprès des habitants et des commerçants vers 6 h du matin (même dans la capitale mégapole, Bangkok - Krung Thep en thaï).
