Once again, the day of reckoning is upon Shanghai's chefs and restaurateurs: it's the release of the 2018 Michelin Guide, AKA the world's most respected (and feared) restaurant guide.  

Last year's list – both the main one and the Bib Gourmand winners – ruffled more than a few feathers in the F&B community for featuring what some saw as a disproportionate number of Hong Kong- and Taiwanese-owned chains, alongside more than a few unexpected selections. 

So who came out top of the pile this year? Find out below. 

Three Stars

"A restaurant worth a special journey, indicating exceptional cuisine where diners eat extremely well, often superbly. Distinctive dishes are precisely executed, using superlative ingredients."

T'ang Court

Said Ultraviolet's Paul Pairet upon receiving three stars, up from a two-star award last year: "It's truly unexpected. I was not sure that Michelin agreed with our very special format, but I am very happy and glad for our team."


Two Stars

"A restaurant worth a detour, indicating excellent cuisine, skillfully and carefully crafted dishes of outstanding quality."

8 1/2 Otto e Mezzo Bombana
Canton 8
Imperial Treasure
L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon
Yi Long Court
Yongfoo Elite

One Star

"A good place to stop on your journey, indicating a very good restaurant in its category, offering cuisine prepared to a consistently high standard."
