The recent Hong Kong and Macau Michelin guide has graded the regions restaurants with an abundance of stars. 19 new restaurants have been awarded with Michelin star status, which has provided the regions with a formidable growing reputation.

Six new restaurants were awarded with two Michelin stars,the Ah Yat Harbour View, Ryu Gin, Summer Palace, Sushi Yoshitake and Tin Lung Heen in Hong Kong and the Golden Flower in Macau. A further 13 were awarded with their first one star rating.

The five establishments in the Hong Kong & Macau region that have three stars retained their status in this year’s guide. Four of these are based in Hong Kong and one in Macau.

There were some casualties on the list, French chef Pierre Gagnaire’s Mandarin Oriental Hong Kongeatery, Pierre, lost its two-star status and was resigned to just a single star.

70% of the cuisine on the Michelin list is Chinese and includes variations like Pekingese, Sichuan, and Cantonese. European, Japanese, and Italian were amongst the other cuisines included in the guide.
