Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list is published by William Reed Business Media, which also publishes The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, launched in 2002, and Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants, launched in 2013. The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list is an annual snapshot of the opinions and experiences of almost 1,000 international restaurant industry experts. It is recognised around the world as the most credible indicator of the best places to eat on Earth and is the trusted arbiter of what matters in global cuisine.
After three successful years in Singapore, the awards ceremony moves to Bangkok on February 2016, reflecting Thailand’s growing influence on the region’s culinary scene. Bangkok restaurants have claimed the No 1 spot on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list for the last two years.
Since its launch in 2013, Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants has become the most trusted and credible guide to the best places to eat around the region. In 2015, changes to the voting process were introduced to reflect the opinions of voters spread throughout Asia and better showcase the diversity of Asia’s culinary scene.
For the 2016 edition, Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants is working with professional services consultancy Deloitte as its official independent adjudication partner. The adjudication by Deloitte will ensure that the integrity and authenticity of the voting process and the resulting list of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants are protected.
