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.
The current menu introduces you to the 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 you through a journey into the heart of India in a new and unexpected way.
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.
Housed on the lower level, amid lush greenery, this dining room is bejewelled with metallic curtains around every table to give the diners a feeling of privacy. Personal service stations, together with the intimacy of being enveloped in your personal cocoon with hues of gold and close proximity to the hustle and bustle of the kitchen makes this dining room relaxing and exciting at the same time.
Perfect spot for sundowners, a quick bite from the a la carte menu, hand crafted cocktails, juices and mocktails. The GAA lounge is a perfect spot to start your meal or simply stop by for a quick taste of India.
In the GAA lounge you have full access to the extensive wine list, a special snack menu curated specifically for the room and the legendary Gaa service and hospitality.
