Gaggan Anand’s progressive Indian restaurant in Bangkok has once again topped the list of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants following a lively ceremony which celebrated and named the finest dining destinations across the continent. Although it was unsurprisingly Japan that emerged as the country with the most entries, including Tokyo’s highly awarded Den in the second spot and Osaka’s La Cime as the list’s highest new entry.

Gaggan is number one for the fourth consecutive year, solidifying a unique standard of culinary excellence that regularly has the restaurant booked out months in advance.
