Global fashion brand Louis Vuitton has opened a restaurant in Bangkok, with renowned Indian chef Gaggan Anand at its helm.

Gaggan is located on the second floor of the Gaysorn Amarin shopping center in Ratchaprasong, one of Bangkok's most popular entertainment and shopping precinct, the French company said on its website.

"Crafted by celebrated Indian chef Gaggan Anand, the sophisticated fare offers a memorable food journey for both lunch and dinner."

It has a seasonal menu featuring Thai cuisine.

Customers can book a private dining room with a full pre-payment of the minimum of THB100,000 (US$2,790) they have to spend.

The restaurant has a dress code – slippers, beach sandals and flip-flops are prohibited, and male guests should not wear sleeveless attire, shorts or open shoes – and allows only guests over the age of 12.

In the main dining room bookings for only up to four people are accepted.

Allergies and dietary restrictions must be reported at least 72 hours before dining.

An eight-course lunch costs THB4,000 while an all-out of a 17-course dinner is THB8,000. Wine pairing starts at THB3,500.

Louis Vuitton opened its first restaurant and cafe along with a new flagship store in Japan’s Osaka in 2020.

Since then restaurants named Louis Vuitton have continued to appear in Tokyo (Japan), Chengdu (China) and Paris (France).
