Bangkok, 1 April, 2022 – The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is delighted to report that the just released 2022 edition of ‘Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants’ features no less than nine restaurants in Thailand, including four in the top 10 rankings.

As a country, Thailand has the second most entries on the prestigious list, after Japan with 11 entries and ahead of Singapore with seven entries.

Mr. Yuthasak Supasorn, TAT Governor, said, “The inclusion of nine restaurants in Thailand among the 50 best in Asia is an impressive achievement indeed, and it is representative of the fantastic quality and diversity of the cuisine sector throughout the country. It also fits perfectly with the promotion of Thai cuisine as a key element of TAT’s ‘Visit Thailand Year 2022: Amazing New Chapters’ campaign.”

The list of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2022 was revealed on 29 March at three simultaneous events bringing together chefs, restaurateurs, industry VIPs, and media in Bangkok, Macau, and Tokyo.

The top-placed of the Thai restaurants is Sorn on Bangkok’s Sukhumvit Soi 26, which secured the No. 2 spot in the list of 50 restaurants around the Asian region with its “unmatched Southern Thai food with impeccable service.” The other three Thai restaurants in the top 10 are Le Du in 4th place, Sühring in 7th, and Nusara in 10th; all of them in Bangkok.

Four Thai restaurants also marked their debut on the 50 best list – Blue by Alain Ducasse in 25th place, Sushi Masato in 29th, Samrub Samrub Thai in 31st, and Raan Jay Fai in 46th. All are in Bangkok, as is Gaa, which placed 33rd on the list.

The earlier announced 51-100 rankings of Asia’s restaurants also included Thailand entries. Bangkok’s Baan Tepa and Quince retained their appearance, earning the 86th and 91st spots, respectively, while Phuket’s one Michelin-starred Pru debuted in 61st place, and Lerdtip Wang Hin debuted in 87th place.
