Our culinary journey begins at 11th floor of Vie Hotel Bangkok where we are greeted with expertly-prepared aperitifs and sparkling wine paired with canapés.

In a graceful, contemporary  dining room overlooking Bangkok’s spectacular skyline, the main meal unfolds with a choice of a 3- and 5-course Chef’s Menu, with organic vegan options. 

Art deco interiors, plush velvet textiles, luxe carpets and a bold color palette evoke classic elegance, while the floor to ceiling glass windows and burnished bronze fittings keep the mood hip and modern.

“Floral cuisine” is an extension of Chef Thierry’s “cuisine of the soil” philosophy, an approach rooted in using the purest and best ingredients to express the flavours of the land and sea.

Instead of focusing on spices, Chef Thierry compliments his plates with the delicate flavours of the region’s beautiful edible flowers and herbs. The floral and herbal notes add brightness and natural aromatics to Chef Thierry’s light, jus-based French style cooking, leading to a delightful concentration of flavours.

Guided by “it’s your stage, it’s your show” ethos, Signature Bangkok engages guests in the dining experience. During the meal, the opening of a velvet curtain reveals the entire culinary team preparing the meal in an open kitchen.  It is a rare window into the orchestra of movements that shape Michelin-calibre meals.

Chef Thierry previously operated a legendary restaurant in the Loire Valley that held 2-Michelin star status for nine consecutive years. Signature Bangkok offers great culinary treats to be discovered. 

Chef Thierry’s menus chart a journey of discovery, taking guests through the intimate stories behind each ingredient.

Signature Bangkok’s cellar features spectacular vintages from around the world, including a robust collection of biodynamic wines from small-scale vintners. Wine pairings are offered with each menu, although diners may select their own wines from the cellar with guidance from our sommelier.

Born in Nantes, in France’s beautiful Loire Valley, Chef Thierry was drawn to the art of cooking while watching his father prepare the family’s Sunday meal. Inspired by nature, Chef Thierry calls his approach “cuisine of the soil”, which brings together the finest, purest ingredients and flavours of land and sea.  

At Signature Bangkok, Chef Thierry continues to innovate and evolve his dedication to ‘floral cuisine’ .
