Indian chef Gaggan Anand's eponymous restaurant in Thailand has once again topped the list of Asia's 50 Best Restaurants for the third year  in a row. The results were announced yesterday at the W Hotel in Bangkok.

"I don't think I have the best restaurant but I can guarantee that I have 67 people in my restaurant and all of the 67 are the best team that I ever worked with," Anand told The Australian after the event. "The only thing I can say is that I'm humbled and thank you. This is for my country where I came from – India, and for Thailand where is my future, my life."

This year's Asia's 50 Best Restaurant list also has two female-led restaurants; at No. 19 is Bo. Lan in Thailand, run by husband-and-wife duo Dylan 'Lan' Jones and Duangporn 'Bo' Songvisava, and the other at No. 28 is Le Moût in Taiwan, run by Lanshu Chen.
