The highly-anticipated list of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2023, sponsored by S.Pellegrino & Acqua Panna, was revealed at a live awards ceremony in Singapore on Tuesday 28th March.

The restaurant was announced as top of the ranking at a ceremony held in Singapore at the Resorts World Sentosa. Sézanne, Tokyo, placed second, while Nusara, also in Bangkok, placed third.

The restaurant replaces chef Zaiyu Hasegawa’s Tokyo fine dining spot Den to be crowned as the best on the continent.
