A year and a half into the COVID-19 pandemic hasn’t curtailed the concerted efforts of professional kitchens around Guangzhou.

On Wednesday, the 2021 Michelin Guide Guangzhou was released to the public, highlighting some of the city’s greatest dining destinations from top dollar to best value.

This is the fourth year that a Michelin Guide has been released in the city of Guangzhou, a culinary capital that features Cantonese food as well as cuisines from around the world.

With prestige and influence that can propel a restaurant to the top of the ranks, the Michelin Guide identifies the very best in regional dining, breaking down their picks into seven categories: Three Star, Two Star, One Star, Bib Gourmand, Michelin Plate, Young Chef and Service Award.

The big news this year is another new addition to the ‘Two Stars’ club, Tai’an Table, which opened in Guangzhou this past year. Additionally, four restaurants were promoted to ‘One Star,’ including Rever, which also received the Young Chef and Service Awards by the Michelin team.

Chef Stefan Stiller spoke with That’s about receiving Two Stars for his second Tai’an Table location (the first is located in Shanghai):

“The good news for us is that we don’t do anything different than what we do in Shanghai. We keep the same quality level and the same recipes and dishes. We have a fantastic team which is excellently trained and do an amazing job. Obviously Guangzhou is a different market than Shanghai, but the market is growing and we are very excited to be here. We are also very excited that Michelin is recognizing our hard work and putting us at the same level as Shanghai”

Below, we’ve gathered the list of winners from Michelin’s 2021 guide to Guangzhou, including many household names you’ll remember from previous years, as well as some new (to the list, anyway) places to try in the months ahead.
