Along with the first selection of MICHELIN Guide Bangkok comes 35 restaurants awarded a Bib Gourmand, a distinction that MICHELIN inspectors award establishments offering “exceptionally good food at moderate prices.”

Enjoy food at Bib Gourmand distinguished restaurants such as:

Jay Oh, where you can taste local seafood and dishes in a rustic and casual ambience

Baannai, located in a beautiful Thai wooden house with a decorated garden serving traditional Thai food

Soul Food Mahanakorn, offering modern Thai dishes like Khao Soi (Chiang Mai’s curried coconut noodle with slow-simmered beef brisket) and Flank Steak Nahm Tak (marinated Australian beef with lime, fish sauce and toasted rice and spices)

Bangkok is known as the street food capital of the world. So, it comes as no surprise that many of the MICHELIN awarded eateries in the lively city are street vendors. A total of 28 street vendors, like Baan Yai Phad Thai, one of the best places for Phad Thai, and Guay Tiew Kua Gai Suanmali, a long-standing stir-fried chicken noodle shop, received coveted MICHELIN accolades.

One special street vendor, Jay Fai, even landed a one-star MICHELIN rating for her tiny kitchen with homemade charcoal stoves. The owner-chef continues her father’s legacy of making crab omelets, crab curries and dry congee.
