Singapore’s 3 MICHELIN Stars establishments retained their stars from last year. They include the three French and European contemporary restaurants Les Amis, Odette and Restaurant Zén. Restaurant Zén has retained its stars for the fourth consecutive year. This year, two new executive chefs, Toraik ‘TC’ and Martin, were introduced.

Retaining the 2 MICHELIN Stars this year include Cloudstreet, Jaan by Kirk Westaway, Saint Pierre, Shoukouwa and Thevar. Meta was promoted to two stars this year.  Meta’s Chef Sun Kim hails from Korea’s Busan, and his refined modern cooking combines Korean traditions and bold flavours with contemporary minimalist aesthetics. The steamed Jeju abalone with gochujang seaweed risotto is a hit, with its contrasting textures – the tender mollusc, creamy rice and crunchy lily bulbs. The seafood-heavy single set menu will also appeal to meat lovers. 

Shoukouwa Sushi Restaurant has retained two MICHELIN Stars for the eighth year.

“I am truly grateful for the fantastic recognition from the Michelin Guide Singapore. This achievement is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire team throughout the past year as well as the support of our Co-Owner Emmanuel Stroobant and our valued customers. Our pledge remains unwavering: Shoukouwa will persist in offering diners an impeccable Edomae sushi experience,”

Four restaurants have been newly awarded one MICHELIN Star. They include the eight-month-old Araya, Chaleur, Matera, and Peranakan restaurant Pangium.

“We are proud to pave the way for a lesser-known cuisine and introduce it to the rest of the world, especially after the recognition from Michelin Guide! It’s food that is very close to mine and Fernanda Guerrero’s hearts, and we hope that more people get to experience it,” shared Chef Francisco Araya.

Tomas Tapia also won the Michelin Guide Sommelier Award for his extensive knowledge in Chilean Wines. Hailing from Santiago, Chile, Tomas brought his wealth of knowledge and passion for wine to Singapore, where he has spent seven years. Beyond his wine expertise, he also possesses a deep understanding of South American cuisine, which he enthusiastically shares with diners. Dedicated to promoting Chilean and South American wines, he regales guests with captivating stories about their unique backgrounds. Through his multifaceted approach, Tomas not only elevates the appreciation of wines but also cultivates a greater understanding and appreciation for the diverse culinary and cultural tapestry of South America. 

Chef-owner Daniele Sperindio from i’WA Group’s Art di Daniele Sperindio celebrates another year with a 1 MICHELIN Star. Perched atop a majestic neoclassical monument that houses the National Gallery Singapore and other award-winning establishments, Art di Daniele Sperindio offers destination dining with a seven-course tasting menu at S$328 per person for dinner and a lunch degustation menu of three and four courses available at S$148 and S$178 respectively.

Fiz awarded Singapore’s second MICHELIN Green Star

A second MICHELIN Green Star was awarded to the contemporary Southeast Asian restaurant Fiz located at 21 Tanjong Pagar Road. 42 year-old Chef-owner Hafizzul Hashim and his team offer a set menu inspired by the chef’s childhood memories in Malaysia and is designed to give diners a deeper understanding of Malaysian flavours, incorporating a variety of Malaysian spices and ingredients.

Fiz is passionately committed to sustainability. It is one of the restaurant’s core values. Chef Hafizzul actively seeks out rare and forgotten ingredients, by working closely with the region’s farmers and producers to grow only what is needed, thereby supporting local communities.


“We are deeply humbled and grateful to be awarded this year’s Michelin Green Star in Singapore. We founded Fiz to spotlight the rich tapestry of Southeast Asian cuisine in a contemporary setting. It is immensely gratifying to be counted among Singapore’s finest restaurants. We couldn’t have done it without everyone’s support — from our whole restaurant team and of course, to our guests.”

The Michelin Green Star is an annual award that highlights restaurants at the forefront of the industry when it comes to their sustainable practices. These include adhering to ethical and environmental standards, such as working with sustainable producers and suppliers to avoid waste. These restaurants offer dining experiences that combine culinary excellence with outstanding eco-friendly commitments. Singapore’s first MICHELIN Green Star recipient was awarded last year to Seroja, which retains the MICHELIN Green Star.

23 New Establishments join the MICHELIN Selection

23 other new locations join the MICHELIN Guide Singapore 2024 selection as MICHELIN Selected establishments, bringing the total to 151.

Podi & Poriyal in Serangoon Road has been inducted into this year’s MICHELIN Selection. The Indian Vegetarian restaurant recently launched a refreshed contemporary direction with an all-new menu featuring an elevated take on classic homestyle recipes. It serves authentic South Indian cuisine not commonly found in Singapore, using labour-intensive processes and artisanal ingredients sourced from across India. It has been opened since 2019.
