Siam Paragon has opened what it describes as “a world-class dining heaven” on its ground floor.
The Siam Paragon Gourmet Garden features more than 30 fine dining restaurants and dessert cafes over an 8000 sqm area, after a refurbishment which took several months.
A centrepiece of the new eating zone features installation art of gigantic bamboo pillars designed by Korakot Aromdee, who creates works of art using natural materials. Other natural elements are placed around the common areas of the precinct, creating what a Siam Paragon spokesman called ‘Pandorascape’.
“Various natural elements are placed in every impeccable detail of design from floor to ceiling. All of these feature different ambience of dining paradise from dawn to dusk with an aim to pinpoint this latest international fine dining and [create] a get-together landmark in the heart of bustling Bangkok.”
Each restaurant and cafe is designed to embrace an open-plan layout. Some restaurants are attached to a sprawling terrace, allowing diners to enjoy the lagoon view and leafy courtyard.
“With unique philosophy and signature dishes specially created for Siam Paragon Gourmet Garden, all eateries certainly bring something new to the table and are guaranteed to please food lovers from all walks of life,” said the spokesman.
