Most expensive meal I ever had but it was definitely worth it! It was a complete new experience for me and my partner.
The venue is easy to find, it is a gorgeous white wooden house that takes you away from feeling like you are in Bangkok. We arrived after dark and it was beautifully lit with candles. There is outdoor and and indoor seating and it is very romantic. Inside the romantic colonial style continues. Its gorgeous! We were seated upstairs which was not our choice as downstairs seemed more atmospheric but we had reserved late.
Reservation online was easy and they called me straight away to confirm. When we were upstairs however we noticed an outside rooftop area that looked lovely so we asked to have our pre-dinner drinks outside which was really romantic with candle light, coloured lighting and water feature.
We were very happy to be given a complimentary mini Pina colada in a strange glass vial with a piece of pineapple.
Our waitress was very friendly but also knew about all of the wines, food and drinks in detail. She was inconspicuously around ready to top up our wine when needed without being over bearing. Wine was served in a decanter to our choosing which is to be expected at a restaurant of this standard.
We ordered the vegetarian tasting menu for 1600 baht ++ This was 7 courses of HEAVEN. Very creative, inventive and flavours immaculately put together and presented. For a first visit this tasting menu was perfect as we got to experience the chefs style.
We absolutely loved our visit to Gaggan and wish I had been able to shake the chefs hand because he really is a star! Yes this price range is seriously outside of our budget but it should be, its incredible food, venue is wonderful and service great. This is somewhere we will definitely visit again but only on a VERY SPECIAL occasions.
Recommended visit whilst on holiday in Bangkok or living. I imagine the cost if this meal in London would be double and the staff not as friendly.
