Restaurant Gaa is a Modern Indian fine dining restaurant situated in a traditional Thai house in the heart of Bangkok.
The Gaa experience is a perfect marriage between tradition and modernity where the world of exciting contemporary Indian flavors meets with a beautiful setting of renovated baan ruen thai.
At Restaurant Gaa, we focus on creating a one-of-a-kind dining experience which showcases the modern relevance of Indian cooking techniques. We bring to you the cuisines of India as we in the kitchen enjoy them the most.
In April 2022, we introduce you to The Rasa Menu, a never ending explosion of flavours, textures and ingredients; all inspired by the limitless cuisines of India.
This menu in its many little bites, combining traditional Indian cooking techniques with local ingredients, will take to you through a journey into the heart of India in a new and unexpected way.
Garima Arora is the Chef and Owner of Restaurant Gaa and the Casual Indian Eatery & Wine Bar, HERE, in Bangkok. Her cuisine is focused on applying traditional Indian cooking techniques onto locally sourced ingredients.
In 2018, Arora became the first Indian female chef to earn a Michelin star at the age of 32. In March 2019, Restaurant Gaa made its debut on the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list at No. 16 with the Highest New Entry Award, and shortly after, claimed its place at No. 95 on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list. Gaa is currently ranked at No. 33 on the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2020 list.
Today her mission is to rediscover and reform the narrative on Indian food through her cooking and her not-for-profit initiative, Food Forward India.
In collaboration with Architectkidd, a Bangkok-based design studio, a 60-year-old traditional Thai house is transformed into a unique dining destination by accentuating the strong characteristics of baan ruen thai in subtle and new ways.
The interior palette is reduced to a singular tone of taupe to give focus on the details such as the wood joinery and how they are seen in changing light and shadow.
The curved ceilings are highlighted with a white string installation which is a modern interpretation of 'Sai Sin' - white threads strung along rafters of houses and buildings to symbolize the spiritual connection and bliss of people gathered together within the space.
Gaa is open everyday for dinner at 5:30pm onwards and lunch at 12pm on the weekends.
