Now into its 9th year, The Peak Singapore’s Gourmet & Travel magazine’s annual G Restaurant Awards continues to celebrate the vibrancy of Singapore’s culinary landscape by recognising stellar dining experiences delivered by top restaurants in Singapore.
Over the last 12 months, Singapore’s dining landscape has continued to evolve and welcome new restaurants, despite challenges faced particularly in the service sector. The establishments have upped their game, and injected much creativity into their concepts and edible masterpieces. Several world-renowned chefs have even invested their time and expertise in our tiny city.
Meanwhile, stalwarts like Gunther’s, Li Bai, Rang Mahal and Hua Ting are not resting on their laurels. Having spruced up their interiors or updated their menus, they continue to impress with consistent offerings. New joints such as Ishi and Nouri charm with their fine creations woven with exclusive ingredients. Adding even more buzz to the scene is a bevy of independent outfits that offer casual chic dining experiences.
After months of tastings done incognito, our panel of experienced food writers and editors, together with an external jury comprising ambassadors, business leaders and wine experts, has carefully selected 48 noteworthy restaurants. Here, this year’s Awards of Excellence winners.
