Gwendal Poullennec, international director of Michelin Guides, said the ratings showcased “Thailand’s rich diversity and high quality of local produce”.
Thailand is already famed for its street food and Bangkok’s curbside crab omelet standout Jay Fai retained its one star.
Despite criticism over its alleged Eurocentrism and focus on pricey restaurants, the red guide, created in 1900, remains a key reference in the world of gastronomy.
Out of some 20,000 restaurants listed worldwide, only about one hundred have achieved the highest distinction of the “three stars”.
Michelin covers Asia in Tokyo, Hong Kong and Macau, Shanghai, Seoul, Singapore, Taiwan and Bangkok.
