Next Time You Are In Bangkok, Check Out This Michelin-Starred Restaurant Owned By An Indian


Great For


GAA in Bangkok, owned by Mumbaikar Garima Arora, has been awarded a Michelin star and here is all that you need to know about it. 

What Makes It Awesome

Garima Araro, a former journalist (for a short time), has learned her culinary skills from Le Cordon Bleu in Paris. After which she worked with some super cool celebrity chefs like Gordon Ramsay and Gaggan Ahmed and at Copenhagen’s Noma restaurant. GAA was launched in 2017, and was recently been awarded its first Michelin star. Our feminist feels are perking up because she is the first Indian woman whose restaurant has been awarded with a Michelin!

The cuisine at GAA is undefinable, has many influences and is superlative. They use local ingredients a lot and techniques like fermentation to get layered and deep flavours. The tasting menu has jewels such as a Thai crayfish on Indian flatbread with shell bisque, fermented tofu whey with charcoal-roasted cauliflower, chilled shards of chicken-liver mousse on toast with longan jam, and more.
