Asia's Best Restaurants Reveal New Names

There's some exciting new additions on the 51-100 list.

Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, sponsored by S.Pellegrino & Acqua Panna, have announced the eagerly awaited list of restaurants ranked between 51st and 100th in the region ahead of its  annual live awards ceremony. This coveted list is created from the votes of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants Academy, an influential, gender-balanced group of 318 leaders made up of food writers and critics, chefs, restaurateurs and regional culinary experts.

This year’s 51-100 list welcomes 12 new entries, among which, three are from the host city, Seoul. Serving up nature-inspired contemporary cuisine is Solbam at No.65, followed by Kwonsooksoo, a modern Korean restaurant that pays tribute to time-honoured techniques at No.89. Alla Prima, a stylish Mediterranean-influenced spot is another new entry from the city at No.91. 

When it comes to other spots on the list, Tokyo has three new entries to the 2024 list. Crony at No.58 offers whimsical tasting menus influenced by French, Scandinavian and North American cuisines. Meanwhile, Maz introduces Peruvian fine dining to Tokyo at No.69, while Myoujyaku is at No.76, with its vegetable-focused seasonal cuisine. 

Our very own Singapore is represented by two new entrants: contemporary Chinese restaurant Peach Blossoms enters the ranking at No.74 while the kaiseki-style multi-course restaurant of Singaporean flavours, Mustard Seed, debuts at No.81. 

Mumbai's The Bombay Canteen, with its innovative take on regional Indian cuisine, enters the list at No.70 while Haoma in Bangkok, helmed by Indian chef Deepanker Khosla (a recipient of the Champions of Change Award at The World's 50 Best Restaurants 2021) debuts at No.90. 

Vegetarian fine dining restaurant Lamdre in Beijing is the recipient of the American Express One To Watch Award 2024 and sits at No.97. Howard’s Gourmet from Hong Kong enters the list at No.100 with its reinvented Chinese fine cuisine
