March 28, 2023 was, to many, was just an ordinary day. But for the restaurants that were announced as Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants in 2023, it was a glorious day. Especially for Chef Thitid “Ton” Tassanakajohn, whose two restaurants were part of the top five – Le Du at #1 and Nusara at #3!

Four Bangkok restaurants have secured places in the top ten (Le Du, Nusara, Gaggan Anand and Sorn), proving that Bangkok’s food scene can offer excellence in both street and fine-dining worlds.
