About Michelin Guide
Michelin has been in the business of evaluating and recommending restaurants and hotels for over a century. It is the oldest European hotel and restaurant reference guide, dating back to 1900, which awards Michelin Stars for excellence to a select few establishments. They employ full-time professional inspectors who anonymously visit restaurants and hotels, and evaluate them on a range of criteria, using an evaluation process that has been honed over time to identify consistently high-quality establishments to suit a range of budgets and across a range of styles and cuisines.
About Le Normandie
When it opened in November 1958, the Tower Wing, now known as the Garden Wing, was regarded as an architectural masterpiece as it was one of Thailand’s tallest buildings. Atop the building was Le Normandie Grill, a long opulent room featuring a Norman-style chimney-piece topped by two rampant lions, the emblem of Normandie. Then the restaurant underwent a complete transformation in 1969, to become Le Normandie – Bangkok’s first fine dining restaurant. In 2015, Le Normandie was rejuvenated with a contemporary interpretation of its original grandeur. The new interior preserves the classic elegance of one of Asia’s best loved French restaurants, together with striking new features such as handcrafted chandeliers. A new wine cellar featuring top selections of both Old and New World wines, a customised dessert trolley and Mandarin Oriental, Bangkok’s legendary tableside service complete this fine dining experience, served with the impeccable service and elegant ambiance that is Le Normandie.
