The 2024 Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list has revealed the top 50 selected restaurants in Asia, with four restaurants in Seoul among the rankings.

Japan’s neo-French style restaurant Sezanne, helmed by British-born chef Daniel Calvert, was announced as the top winner at an awards ceremony held at the Grand InterContinental Seoul Parnas on Tuesday evening.

The ceremony marked the finale to the gastronomic summit that kicked off this year’s edition in Seoul on Saturday, gathering some 1,000 industry insiders from across the region.

Four restaurants in Seoul were listed this year.

Mingles, a two-Michelin-starred contemporary Korean restaurant from chef Kang Min-goo, ranked 13th, followed by Seventh Door at No. 18, Onjium at No. 21 and Mosu at No. 41.

Seventh Door reentered the list after ranking 41st in 2019, the year chef Kim Dae-chun, a former musician, opened the restaurant.

Mosu chef and owner Ahn Sung-jae also received the peer-voted Inedit Damm Chefs’ Choice Award.

Singaporean restaurants led the list with nine entries, with newcomers like Seroja sitting at No. 31 and Lolla at No. 43.

The Highest New Entry Award 2024, sponsored by Korean food conglomerate Nongshim, went to Singapore’s Seroja.

The Highest Climber Award, sponsored by Korean Air, was given to Hong Kong’s contemporary Chinese restaurant Wing.
