3 Indian Restaurants Named In Asia's 50 Best Restaurants 2022

Masque, Indian Accent and Megu make it to Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants List

The 10th edition of the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list and awards was revealed on Tuesday, March 29, via a live award show broadcast, where three Indian restaurants made it onto the prestigious list. The announcement aired with simultaneous live events in Bangkok, Macau, and Tokyo, making it the first time since 2019 that the restaurant community got a chance to witness the awards ceremony in a live event.

Mumbai’s fine dining restaurant Masque rose from its rank last year at #32 to #21 this year, while New Delhi’s Indian Accent fell from #18 to #22. A new entrant from India, Megu, at The Leela New Delhi broke into the list and made it at #48. No mean feat, considering Megu is a Japanese restaurant, competing with other high-end restaurants from Japan.

Covering 12 countries and territories across Asia, Japan leads the pack with 12 restaurants on the list, with 9 from Thailand, 7 from Singapore and 6 entries from Hong Kong. The No 1 spot went to Tokyo’s Den, known for its contemporary Japanese cuisine. Runner up was Sorn from Bangkok, and third place went to Tokyo’s very own Florilège.

The 51-100 list was announced last week, and has some new entrants from India such as Mumbai’s The Table, Americano and Gurgram’s Comorin. Other Indian restaurants on the 51-100 list include New Delhi’s Dum Pukht and Bukhara, Bengaluru’s Karavalli and Chennai’s Avartana.

The new list of the best dining destinations in Asia is voted for by a dedicated and gender-balanced panel of more than 350 experts, including food writers and critics to chefs, restaurateurs, and regional culinary experts from across the continent. The voting system was adjusted to take into account recent restrictions on travel and provides a snapshot of the dining scene at this time.
