As one of the most acclaimed restaurants in not only Bangkok but all of Asia, it seems only fitting that Gaggan would come in at number one as the best Indian restaurant in the capital. Chef Gaggan Anand is the mastermind behind the delicious and progressive Indian cuisine at Gaggan, and one would not imagine that this luxurious restaurant came to be after a drunken night out with friends—but this is precisely the case. The restaurant is made up of multiple dining areas, from a private room to the library set inside the colonial-style wooden house in downtown Bangkok. Gaggan’s feasts, otherwise known as the Gaggan Experience, are designed to take diners to every region in India with a unique menu that even the hungriest of diners will struggle to finish. The feast is ฿4,000 (approximately US$116), yet the flavorful and reinvented Indian dishes continue to lure in herds of curious diners, with visitors having to book from a week to an entire month in advance to see what the hype is all about.
