Destined for a career in gastronomy, chef Gaggan Anand had already cooked for former US President Bill Clinton and Abdul Kalam Azad, the former President of India, at the age of just 22.

After an internship at the famed El Bulli under Ferran Adrià, chef Anand moved to Thailand where he opened restaurant Gaggan in Bangkok.

Currently at No.3 on the inaugural Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list 2014, restaurant Gaggan has won accolades and rave reviews on both a local and international level. Dubbed by TIME magazine as the “Captain Kirk of cuisine”, Chef Anand has spoken at BCN Vanguardia, the prestigious International Gastronomy Conference in Barcelona, sharing the stage with some of the world’s top chefs.

He has also held workshops at Thailand Creative & Design Center’s annual symposium “Creativities Unfold, Bangkok 2012: Design is Opportunities: Innovation, Strategy, Business”, where it was remarked that he is an “innovation and design guru who changed Indian food.”

Located in an 85-year-old whitewashed colonial-style wooden house in the heart of downtown Bangkok, restaurant Gaggan is an intimate space with marble-topped tables, cane furniture and black & white photos, where guests are treated to Chef Gaggan’s modernist re-interpretation of classic Indian cuisine.
