Give it a swirl.

The panel includes:
The panelists or judges are given the shortlist of 200 restaurants and, for each restaurant, they’re asked to tick one of three options:
We then apply a formula to keep only the places with the best Yes:No ratios. This year, we kept 100 places.
It’s also done by the panelists. Each panelist selects their top 10 restaurants. We compile their responses into a top 30.
Panelists cannot vote for venues they are associated with.
No. Some of them don’t want the publicity. And we don’t particularly want them getting courted by award-savvy PRs.
Beyond the fact that they’re included in the shortlist, no, they don’t. The system works as described above. The panelists vote on the Official Selection and the Top 30 and we keep only the top ranked places. BK has no influence on that ranking.
Making great food with excellent service in a beautiful location is a good start. Sadly, it’s not always enough. Also make sure your work gets noticed. Buzz does matter when it comes to awards.
Top Tables is a great way to recognize restaurants that are well loved in Bangkok. And the system is as independent, honest and democratic as we can make it. If you have suggestions on how to improve the process, we’re open to them. And, of course, you’re also welcome to disagree with the results. It wouldn’t be any fun making a top list if everyone agreed with it.
