One could say that what happened recently at the 2022 Oscars really stole the limelight from many noteworthy events that took place in the same period. For fine dining fanatics, the announcement, on March 29, of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2022, was probably juicier than an Oscar controversy.

Featuring celebrated restaurants from 11 countries and territories across Asia, this year’s announcement really had fine dining lovers on the edge of their seats with sheer excitement.

This year, Den, from Tokyo, crowns the first prestigious spot with its innovative and mega-satisfying Japanese fare, followed by Sorn from Bangkok Thailand, a hub for impeccable Southern Thai dishes that come with a boatload of flavours. 

With four Bangkok restaurants summiting the top-ten list (Sorn, Le Du, Sühring and Nusara), it goes without saying that this is yet another influential year for Thai F&B.
