Bangkok boasts an eclectic culinary scene that is both traditional and contemporary, and as local as it is global. We are delighted to help cement Thailand’s reputation as a major culinary destination,” said Segsarn Trai-Ukos, Country Director – Thailand, Michelin Siam.

The winner announcements and the awards will be presented by Mr Michael Ellis, International Director, Michelin Guides.
