Celebrity chef Joel Robuchon’s restaurant held on to its three Michelin stars this year, once again making it the only establishment in Singapore to grab the top-tier honours.
Seven restaurants were awarded two stars on Thursday, and more than two dozen received one star. Michelin first produced a Singapore guide last year.
The guide, long known for its devotion to French food, has been expanding in Asia, sending its anonymous reviewers out to restaurants in Japan, Shanghai, and Seoul in the past decade. Thailand will be the latest to join the Michelin fold with its first guide later this year.

Singapore’s dining scene has long been touted as one of the world’s most vibrant. Its geographical location in the Straits of Malacca and racially diverse population have allowed for a fusion of flavours from across Southeast Asia and the greater region.
From upscale establishments to cheap, high-quality street food, the city has a variety of options for every budget.
Last week, Michelin released its Bib Gourmand list for Singapore, which recognises places that serve high-quality food at an affordable price—no more than S$45 ($32.60) per person. Twenty of the 38 names on the list are hawker stalls.
Robuchon’s French restaurant at Resorts World Sentosa last year was Singapore’s first to receive three Michelin stars. The menu includes imperial caviar, Alaskan crab and French beans. Restaurant Andre has amassed a string of awards since opening in 2010.
