MICHELIN Announces the Official 2019 MICHELIN Guide Bangkok, Phuket and Phang-Nga Restaurant Selection

Michelin is pleased to reveal the 2019 MICHELIN Guide Bangkok, Phuket and Phang-nga selection, featuring 4 establishments with two Michelin stars (an upgrade of one restaurant from Michelin one star to two stars) and 23 restaurants with one Michelin star (10 new).

The big story this year is the upgrade of the contemporary European restaurant Sühring in Bangkok, going from one Michelin star to two, the entrance of ten new one Michelin star restaurants and Phuket’s first Michelin Star establishment PRU.

“This year’s guide is a reflection of the growing talent in Thailand’s culinary scene with many new restaurants added to the selection, including now 14 specializing in Thai food, reinforcing Thailand’s reputation as a go-to destination for gastronomy,” said Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the MICHELIN Guides.

“With Thailand’s Andaman Sea offering an opulence of refined ingredients and endless culinary inspiration, it’s no surprise that Thailand’s south is home to one of the most innovative restaurants in our selection.

“Furthermore, the very coveted club of Michelin two star restaurants widens in Bangkok with the addition of Sühring who have built on their success of last year.”
