What do you think will get them?
Even Though I think Bangkok is a very strange place to have the guide.
@Kalboz What will get starred?
Probably one or few of these:
Issaya Siamese Club
The Dining Room at The House on Sathorn
L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon
As they are included in the Asia's best 50 restaurants: http://www.theworlds50best.com/asia/en/asias-50-best-restaurants.html#t1-50
but are they even good or just Michelin not understanding Asia syndrome ?
I have tried at least two of them (Le Normandie and Bo.Lan) and they were forgettable and the price tag was earth-shattering! Give me street food any day!
I've been to Gaggan and Sushi Masato and both are/should be as Michelin as anywhere else in the world.
ETA: Oh and Michelin aside they were both excellent and I'd highly recommend them.
Do you like French Food though?
I loved the one that was on Sukhumvit 8 with the duck presser (forgot the name) but it burned down 10 years ago. It had a such a charming indochina circa-1920s relaxing atmosphere.
Another good French restaurant is located inside the Plaza Athenee called The Reflexions where I had many memorable meals including frog legs
Finally, Le Beaulieu on Ruam Rudi at Athenee Tower - had some of the best French food outside France. Went back last January and they were out of business! https://www.flickr.com/photos/kalboz/sets/72157644111555144
Le Normandie at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel is hyped, overpriced, and the food, IMO, was mediocre but the views are amazing!

Sorry I did not mean to sound snarky
