The Okura Prestige Bangkok restaurant Elements has retained its Michelin star in the second annual edition of Michelin Guide Bangkok, on a list that now also includes dining venues in southern Phuket and Phang Nga provinces.
Inspired by the two-Michelin-star restaurant Ciel Bleu at the Hotel Okura Amsterdam, Elements has developed a reputation for finely prepared gourmet French cuisine with seasonal Japanese influences.
The restaurant’s wide selection of a-la-carte dishes is refreshed regularly to take full advantage of the freshest available produce from Thailand and carefully selected overseas markets.
“Receiving a Michelin star is a great honour for us,” says Edward Snoeks, the hotel’s general manager. “It’s the culmination of a fantastic 12 months for Elements, which began with recognition of the restaurant’s innovative dining experience. It’s wonderful that the restaurant has earned a Michelin star for the second year in a row and an affirmation of the skill and commitment of our culinary team in delivering dishes of a consistently high quality.”
Elements was ranked third by lifestyle magazine Thailand Tatler at its Best Restaurants Dining Guide Awards 2018 and recently earned a spot in BK Magazine’s Top Tables Bangkok 2018 listings.
“The recognition received from these respected publications reflects our commitment to enhancing the guest’s dining experience based on the spirit of kaizen, a key part of the company’s vision and mission,” Snoeks says.
The second edition of Michelin’s little red guide awards one star each to 23 restaurants, of which 13 are new recipients, and two stars to four establishments.
“Earning a Michelin star is a magnificent accolade for the restaurant and a testament to the hard work of our culinary team and front-of-house staff,” says executive chef Alvaro Roa. “We will continue to work closely with Ciel Bleu to share culinary savoir-faire and our entire team will continue to strive for excellence in all that we do.”
Elements is open from 6 to 10.30pm Tuesday through Saturday. Visit www.OkuraBangkok.com.
