- No.16 Asia's 50 Best Restaurants 2019
- Asia’s Best Female Chef 2019
When Garima Arora was named Asia’s Best Female Chef in 2019, her restaurant was also the highest new entry in Asia’s 50 Best, jumping straight in at 16. Before opening Gaa in 2017, Mumbai-born Arora honed her talent at Copenhagen’s Noma, which topped the World’s 50 Best list on four separate occasions, and fellow Bangkok-based restaurant Gaggan, named Asia’s Best for four consecutive years. Melding flavours from India and Thailand, Arora’s progressive dishes are born from seasonal ingredients, a cuisine she describes as “modern eclectic”. It earned Gaa a Michelin star in 2019, with Arora becoming the first Indian woman to receive the accolade.
