Asia 50 Best Restaurants


Bangkok is preparing to raise the curtain on the 5th edition of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, an event sponsored by S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna, with the full list being announced on February 21st 2017 at 8pm (1pm GMT) local time at the city's W Hotel, and LIVE-STREAMED ON THIS PAGE.

While waiting for the list to be revealed, some special awards have been given in advance. May Chow has already been named as Asia's Best Female Chef 2017, credit to both her innovative spin on bao buns and string of successful eateries to her name. Toc Toc restaurant in Seoul, Korea, run by Kim Dae-Chun has been picked as Asia’s One to Watch. Both recipients will collect their awards live at the ceremony on 21 February at the W Hotel in Bangkok during the 5th annual Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants ceremony.

It will be the second time the prestigious S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna-sponsored event, which names the best restaurants and chefs across Asia, has taken place in its new home in Thailand since its departure from Singapore.

The programme will commence this year with a number of warm-up events scheduled for Monday 20 February, including the #50BestTalks event, a combination of local food discovery and interactive chef demonstrations exploring regional food trends and local Thai cooking techniques.  

The Asia's 50 Best Restaurants 2016 list saw Gaggan Anand's Gaggan snag the top spot for a second consecutive year, while Tokyo's Narisawa took second, retaining the same spot from 2015, and Restaurant André in Singapore was third. 10 new entries were also welcomed to the list, which showcased the best dining experiences in 13 Asian countries, more than ever before.
