    What do you think will get them?
    Even Though I think Bangkok is a very strange place to have the guide.

    I have tried at least two of them (Le Normandie and Bo.Lan) and they were forgettable and the price tag was earth-shattering! :eek: 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.

    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! :eek: 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!
