About Gaa

Restaurant Gaa stands by the belief that food should reflect the richness and variety of its land and the moment in time. Here the food captures the vibrancy of Bangkok and its amalgamation of cultural influences. The team, led by Chef Owner Garima Arora and her international team of passionate chefs, makes it their mission to explore interesting ways to transform local, seasonal humble ingredients into something that’s unheard of and completely new.

Chef Garima taps into techniques from around the world and applies them to locally sourced ingredients to create something uniquely theirs – an approach that is best described as “Modern Eclectic Cuisine.”

Everything that is served to the guests is freshly prepared in-house with immense thought and care.

Great food with so many interesting flavors in unusual combinations and lovely service staff, most of them spoke English very well.
First few courses came a bit to fast in a row; we barely had the last bite of one course when they already brought the next one.

I booked the restaurant for my boss, she's extremely pleased with the arrangement and posted photos in her social media account.

The restaurant is not easy to find as it has no sign on the main road. Fortunately Google map did a good job. I choose the 14-course menu which was very innovative. It gave a great tasting experience to me. The wines paired with the menu were fine but not something that would enhance the favours of the foods. The waitress and the manager were knowledgeable with the foods and they explained very clearly about every dish. I will bring my family and friends over to try it soon. Definitely one of the must-go restaurants in Bangkok.

Loved the vegan alternations made for this menu. I was very excited to spend my last night of a 5 week vacation dining here. It did not disappoint. In America, it is very hard to find a restaurant that will do a vegan tasting menu at such a nice restaurant. Thank you for the experience. Also, Marco was a wonderful server.

Amazing experience. Gaa is inventive, exciting, playful and surprising. The 14 or so courses were all really delicious. The service is much better than most high-end tasting menu restaurants in Bangkok. The wine pairings

Skip Gaggan across the street, it is supremely overrated and overpriced. Gaa is 10x better.

Our meal at Gaa was fantastic! We opted for the 10 course menu and were not disappointed. Delectable dishes that were simple but at the same time creative due to the infusion of different flavors, melding European and SE Asian. The chilled soup of mango, pumpkin and pickles was so fresh. The chicken liver and longan was a match made in heaven. The crayfish was out of this world, while the cauliflower with caramelized whey blew us away!

I do not gravitate to tasting menus I must say, but Gaa's has perhaps made me a convert. Granted this tasting menu is more on the 'affordable' side, but it's culinary delights undoubtedly rival those of its peers/competitors.

The one thing we would poke a tiny hole in is the dessert. But this might have more to do with my unsophisticated palate! While interesting, the egg fruit (lamut?) ice cream left a very odd aftertaste. But I do not dwell on that note, as the aftertaste in general of Gaa is one of pure scrumptiousness! Thanks for making our anniversary a tasty and memorable one!

My partner was treated rudely when he arrived (ahead of me). This is likely racism - my partner is Black and I am white. The greeter didn't open the door for my partner as he did for me and every other guest we saw arrive; when my partner entered, the greeter asked "what do you want?"; when I arrived, the greeter assumed I was with a party of white people and told me to go upstairs, though I could see my partner clearly from where I was. It was very inappropriate and frustrating.

We felt the food was fair only for the price. Having been to restaurants of this type, it was overpriced for the quality, service timing, and creativity.

One dish was amazing: the cauliflower, crab, and caramelized whey. If this was available a la carte, I would recommend going for only this dish. However, there are only pre fixe (which are exactly the same excepting the 3 of the better dishes, which were only on the 14 course menu).

We were disappointed. Will not return and would not recommend. We did not stay for coffee.

Food was very impressive. My Japanese guests really enjoyed. They were very excited to guess the ingredients and how it was made. They really love the egg fruit ice cream. The one with flower on chocolate coated crispy pork skin was quite strange. Very good & friendly service and atmosphere. 5 of us arrived early so the music was quite too loud for business conversation. Howver, the manager adjusted the volume down when we asked.

Organized a birthday dinner for my friend, who just moved to Bangkok for work. The place seems more welcoming than the popular restaurant right across in terms of reservation, dress code and ambience. It was one of the best meals in town I have had with very creative and tasteful dishes. Wine selection was also great. The birthday dessert with the staff singing to my friend towards the end of the dinner also took my friends (and myself) by surprise. Overall, had a great time dining there. Will definitely come back and recommend my family and friends to visit.

We had high expectations for the food at Gaa and to be honest only three or four of the twelve dishes on the tasting menu were remarkable. The rest was quite unremarkable. The space has two floors and we were seated on the second floor which has a lot less ambiance than the ground floor, something that didn't contribute to our experience.

An absolutely wonderful experience--from the moment I walked through the door until my last goodbye.
Food was flawless -- original, exciting, piquing interest and satisfying.
Service was exceptional. Everyone treated me so well; for a solo diner, alone on a special birthday in a city not her own, they made me feel warm & welcomed and at home.
Truly a meal and an evening I will long remember.
