In the beautiful building hidden away from the main street, the chef is trying the best he can, to impress with different, tasty and exiting food. I think that he gets all those integrated in the food that he serves. The serving is very european but a bit more relaxed, witch I think is nice. We had the 7 courses tasting menu and I have never had indian food like that before. One have to consider that we are from Scandinavia and there is not that manny indian restaurants to choose from. Further more nobody that is serving anything else than the more traditional food. The food is beautiful presented and full of taste.

I cannot wait to come back for more!

We had a wonderful dinner at Gaggan. The restaurant itself is beautiful-the all white decor is elegant and romantic. There were three of us and we chose the middle of the three tasting options. It is molecular but not in an extreme way, so it isn't weird, just Indian re-designed. The flavours and satisfaction are all there. And, it's fun. My only comment is since I can't eat dairy, they made me a special single dessert. Compared to the innovation and beauty of the last 3 dessert courses, my single dessert was very disappointing in innovation, beauty and most importantly, taste. From what I tasted in the previous courses, I know they can make better non dairy desserts!

We weren't planning on eating Indian food in Thailand, but a craving for curry and a recommendation from an Indian friend made us book a table here. The restaurant is situated in the business district in a 70-year old house. The white decor was refreshing after a hot, humid day on the streets of Bangkok. We decided to go with the à la carte menu since the tasting menu was overwhelmingly French, and we thought Indian in Thailand was enough of a departure from the local culture. The appetizers were creatively executed in the "molecular cusine" style--the 'Chowpati Year 2050' were delicate spheres of yogurt (almost like poached eggs--a congealed exterior with a liquid center), drizzled with a foam of fresh coriander on little biscuits, and the 'Made in India'--grilled cheese squares also drizzled with coriander foam. The main courses were more traditional despite the cutsey names like 'Mom's Magic Mutton', ' Who You Calling Chicken' and 'Ra-ta-touille'. They were all tender, full of flavour and just the right degree of spiciness. Naan and paratha, good. But the big surprise came in the dessert. The 'Up in Smoke' another variation on the molecular theme is worth a try...even if you are a non-smoker. A scoop of vanilla ice-cream is served under a glass dome which is filled with smoke. When the dome is lifted, the smoke lifts and you are left with ice-cream surrounded by a crumble of a coffee/cookie mixture all tasting of smoke. Really different! The other dessert we ordered, consisting of cinnamon ice-cream, caramelized banana slices and little meringues was OK. Dinner for two with one alcoholic cocktail and one non came to about $125.00 US, a bit on the high side, but a fun meal nevertheless. PS, the cocktails were great! The Long Island iced tea and a non-alcoholic mojito are worth mentioning.

Gaggan is confused Indian molecular, unable to decide its governing culinary philosophy: is it Western fusing with Eastern accents, or Indian going for Western techniques (and conventions such as prix-fixe tasting menus)? Neither produces particularly convincing results, though all the elements are there: charming setting, good service, a genuine effort at creating a thrilling taste experience. Perhaps this is designed to appeal to a curious Thai clientele, instead of tourists come to Bangkok looking for something other than the standard noodles and curry. On balance, this is expensive upscale Indian.
