These Are the 50 Best Restaurants in Asia

The seventh edition of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants is out and leading the pack is Tokyo with as many as 10 restaurants on the list. Hong Kong (9), Bangkok (8) and Singapore (7) follow the lead. The top spot has been taken by chef Julien Royer’s Odette (Singapore), while Gaggan, Bangkok finished second after four consecutive years as Asia’s Best Restaurant. New Delhi’s Indian Accent (# 2 at Top Restaurant Awards 2018) is the only restaurant in India to have ranked in the top 50, coming in at #17.

Odette’s Julien Royer was in India earlier this month for a gourmet festival. Speaking to CNT, he stated that Mumbai’s Swati Snacks opened his eyes to the diversity of vegetarian cuisine in India. “Of course, I know that as you travel from north to south the cuisine changes—like Kashmiri food is very different from South Indian cuisine. I do not know much about Indian cuisine, but I can’t wait to learn more.”

celebrity chef Gaggan Anand has stated that he will be shutting down his eponymous restaurant in 2020. “All good things must come to an end. I’m tired of doing the same thing and need a change. A new restaurant in Japan is on the cards. I’m also opening a bar in Bangkok called Wet which will serve natural wines,” Gaggan Anand told CNT in interview earlier.

Ahead of this ceremony last month, Mumbai girl Garima Arora was announced as Asia’s best female chef. Garima Arora’s Bangkok restaurant GAA received its first Michelin star last year and ranked #16 on the Asia’s 50 best restaurant list this year.
