Gaggan Anand is an Indian chef and the owner and executive chef of the progressive Indian restaurant Gaggan in Bangkok, Thailand.
Anand opened Gaggan in December 2010. Since then the restaurant has repeatedly placed on the Restaurant’s The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list. In 2014 it ranked 17th in the global rankings. In 2015, 2016 and 2017, the restaurant was named both the best restaurant in Thailand, and Asia’s best restaurant on the list of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants as reported by Restaurant magazine. This was an increase from the third spot overall in Asia in 2014. The restaurant placed 10th, 23rd, 7th and 4th overall in the world in The World’s 50 Best Restaurants in 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2019 respectively, and remained the only Indian restaurant to ever rank in the top 50.
Anand planned to close Gaggan in 2020 to start a 10-seat restaurant that opened only on weekends in Fukuoka, Japan. This plan was shelved when on July 23, Anand resigned from his eponymous restaurant due to acrimony with his partners.
Anand opened his own separate restaurant in Bangkok named ‘Gaggan Anand’ on November 1, 2019 after a split with his partners.
Anand also has investments in other restaurants in Bangkok. He opened a steakhouse named Meatlicious and partnered with Thomas and Mathias Sühring to open Sühring, a modern German restaurant that placed 13th in the Asia’s Best Restaurants as reported by Restaurant magazine.
Gaggan was profiled in Season 2’s Episode 6 of Netflix’s Chef’s Table.
He was featured in Netflix’s Somebody Feed Phil Season 1 Episode 1.
