Find out who made it to Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list this year, from Le Du and Gaggan Anand to Den and Odette.

The highly anticipated day has finally arrived! Following last week’s announcement of the 51-100 list, the full 2023 ranking for Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants (1-50) has been unveiled. This time, the ceremony — its tenth edition — was held in Singapore’s Resorts World Sentosa. Last year, Den took the highest spot on the list, followed by Sorn, Florilège, Le Du, and The Chairman. How different does this year’s gastronomic revelation look compared to 2022’s? Well, for starters, Le Du of Bangkok was announced as the best restaurant in Asia. An impressive feat for sure. This follows the announcement of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 51-100 list.

In addition to these awards and the ones specified below, other special recognitions include Jakarta’s August receiving the American Express One To Watch Award as well as Asia’s Best Female Chef Award which went to Johanne Siy of Lolla in Singapore. The latter was presented by 2022’s winner, Natsuko Shoji of Été. Fun fact: Nine is the special digit this year with both Bangkok and Singapore having the same number of entries.
