Since it opened in February 2016, Punjab Grill has quickly become the go-to fine-dining Indian restaurant in Bangkok. Not only is it located on the ground floor at the iconic and glamorous Radisson Suites of Bangkok Sukhumvit, it is also ably led by chef Bharath S. Bhat, who brings with him over 12 years of experience in creating Michelin standard cuisine across Europe, Middle East, and Asia.
The menu itself features an exciting choice of dishes from India’s diverse northwestern frontier provinces. Diners can embark on a culinary journey with top five signature dishes including Avocado Papdi Chaat (flatbread topped with Avacado) and a myriad of kebabs such as Grilled Tiger Prawns, Chicken Tikka, and Lamb Chops, which are all cooked to succulent perfection in the tandoori oven. Do not miss out on the many biryanis that Punjab Grill has to offer, as well as its curries. The Butter Chicken is a standout dish and its rich flavour is simply unforgettable. The wide variety of dals that Punjab Grill has is also astounding and not to be overlooked.
To end your meal, choose from a range of stunning traditional desserts such as Paneer Jalebi (crispy fried cottage cheese soaked in saffron-scented syrup) and Chocolate Sphere filled with Pista Kulfi, which comes topped with a warm cardamom-scented chocolate sauce. To drink, try the Indian-inspired cocktails like Gulabi Mojito, which has rose petals and syrup, for an suitably sweet end to your meal. For a taste of glamour and class, Punjab Grill is the Indian restaurant of choice. (Sep 2016)
Bangkok’s cool molecular gastronomic Indian restaurant Gaggan has been crowned the best restaurant in Asia.
Tonight, Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants ceremony took place at W Hotel. The restaurants ranking is an offshoot of World’s 50 Best Restaurants, which comes out every June and was created by Restaurant Magazine. It sees a global panel of chefs, foodies and restaurateurs vote on their favorite venues.
The #1 spot went to Gaggan for the second year in a row. The molecular restaurant headed by chef Gaggan Anand consistently pushes boundaries by replicating bursts of familiar flavors in completely new formats.
Three other Bangkok venues made the cut.
Nahm placed eighth. Chef David Thompson is famous for singlehandedly reviving Thai fine dining by being the first to serve up uncompromising flavors in a Michelin-worthy setting (he held one star in London before relocating here in 2010). He also won the Lifetime Achievement Award, which had been announced earlier. Nahm placed first in 2014 and 7th last year.
The 19th spot went to Issaya, the flagship restaurant of Ian Kittichai, who has had a busy year growing his empire to Hong Kong. Here, Issaya is known for delivering subtle tweaks on authentic Thai food in a charming house surrounded by a garden. Issaya had placed at the 39th spot last year. Well played, Ian!
Eat Me, headed by Tim Butler, saw its global cuisine with American, Mediterranean, Asian and Pacific Rim influences rewarded with a 23rd spot, a two-spot jump compared to last year.
Bo.lan, which was 37th last year, dropped off the list.
After three years in Singapore, where the awards debuted, it was exciting to see the ceremony come to Bangkok. We can’t comment on the restaurants outside of Thailand that made the cut, but we can confirm the Bangkok winners are amazing places with hugely talented chefs.
For our own panel’s views on who deserves the top three spots, you’ll have to wait for our own Top Tables 2016 guide, out this March. But we will say this: the Robuchon places in Macau and Singapore made the cut.
Here is the full top 10:
1. Gaggan, Bangkok 2. Narisawa, Tokyo 3. Restaurant Andre, Singapore 4. Amber, Hong Kong 5. Nihonryori Ryugin, Tokyo 6. Waku Ghin, Singapore 7. Ultraviolet by Paul Pairet, Shanghai 8. Nahm, Bangkok 9. Indian Accent, New Delhi 10. Lung King Heen, Hong Kong

Unique Kababs of India
The kababs originated in Middle Eastern countries. In 14th century when the Mughals from these countries invaded India and made it their home, they brought with them Rikabdars & Bawarchis (personal chefs of kings), and the specialized equipment – ‘tandoor’ to India. The Kabab then was just meat sprinkled with salt and then barbecued. Shortly after, it caught the fancy of Indian chefs and in no time they began perfecting it into a sublime art. The kind which you can savour at The Great Kabab Factory.
For almost two centuries when Mughals ruled over India, these Rikabdars and Bawarchis created various types of kababs to please their masters. One such kabab is Galauti Kabab which is also a signature dish of The Great Kabab Factory. It is said that Galauti Kabab was invented by one of the chefs for his aging king – Nawab Wajid Ali Shah who lost his teeth but not his passion for meat dishes. Galauti means “melt in your mouth” i.e., melt-in-mouth kababs and was perfect for the toothless Nawab. Many such legendary kababs will be served at The Great Kabab Factory like Tandoori Chicken, Seekh Kabab etc.
By virtue of preparation, there are various kinds of kababs, like, Tikkas are boneless preparations cooked in tandoor; Shami Kababs are deep fried patties; Seekh Kababs are skewered meat/vegetables; Bharwan Kababs are stuffed kababs, for example – potatoes stuffed with cottage cheese and so on. Similarly various vegetarian kababs are available in India like, vegetarian Galauti Kabab, Tandoori Pineapple and many more.
Kababs in India have distinct taste profile and are entirely different from Arabic kababs like Shawarma and Shish Touk. This can be credited to the spices native to Indian subcontinent’ like, some of the best peppers and saffron are grown in India and hence have a predominant influence on Indian kababs.
The Great Kabab Factory owns a recipe bank of over 450 kababs that includes many closely guarded family recipes passed down through the ages. Our chefs have mastered and created our signature kababs through a decade of extensive research and development and have traveled to remote areas. Various imitations have been created but none match the unique flavor and aromas of the original The Great Kabab Factory signature kababs.
To ensure consistency and the same great taste everywhere, all retail locations worldwide use the The Great Kabab Factory proprietary ‘Spice Packs’. These Spice Packs are a secret spice combination, prepared and known to only a few select at head office.
