Le Du in Bangkok leads Asia in the world of cuisine

Le Du in Bangkok has secured the coveted No.1 spot at Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants. This was announced at a live awards ceremony in Singapore, which was the first full-scale gathering of the region’s gastronomic community since 2019.Le Du

The Best In Asia

The Bangkok restaurant has remained consistently on the list since 2017, but it has achieved new fame as Asia’s Best. Under the tutelage of dynamic young chef Thitid ‘Ton’ Tassanakajohn, Le Du  presents a modern take on refined Thai food interpreted through a French-leaning lens. Its menus champion the use of seasonal and local ingredients and the steadfast belief in the superiority of Thai produce.Le Du
