The Michelin Guide Singapore 2024 has been officially released in full!

This comes just a week after the announcement of this year’s Bib Gourmand listing on Jun 18 — an award which spotlights the best affordable and quality eats — which included 11 new entrants.

2024’s Michelin Guide Singapore will be the eight edition of the world-famous food-destination guide, with the inaugural edition released in 2016 (there wasn’t one in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic).

As with every year, the Guide will showcase the best eats in the city, as well as award the best restaurants in the city with their iconic Michelin stars to recognise the restaurants’ excellence in craft and service.

A single Michelin star represents “a very good restaurant in its category” while two stars signifies “excellent cooking, worth a detour”.

The coveted three stars are reserved for establishments serving “exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey.” At present, only three restaurants in Singapore have had this distinction.

In the Michelin Guide Singapore 2024, our city sees a total of 51 restaurants being bestowed upon with at least one Michelin star.

New one-star entrants

  • Araya
  • Chaleur
  • Matera
  • Pangium

There are four new one-star entrants for Michelin Guide Singapore 2024 and they present very different and interesting styles of cooking.

For example, Araya is a snazzy and innovative Chilean outfit at the Mondrian Singapore Duxton hotel that focuses on Japanese and Chilean produce. 

There’s also Chaleur, a French-Japanese concept at Neil Road that’s helmed by Masahiko Kawano, who had previously led Reve to a Michelin star.

For a spot with both good cooking and good views, we have Matera, a modern Italian hideout at The Fullerton Waterboat House, which treats diners to a wonderful waterfront view.

Finally, we have Pangium to round out the new entrants — this is a contemporary Peranakan tasting-menu experience crafted by chef Malcom Lee, of one-starred Candlenut fame.

Two Michelin stars

The 2024 edition of the Michelin Guide Singapore sees six restaurants being awarded with two Michelin stars, as five restaurants keep their two-star status and one new restaurant joins the ranks.

Restaurants retaining their two stars

  • Cloudstreet 
  • Jaan by Kirk Westaway 
  • Saint Pierre 
  • Shoukouwa 
  • Thevar

New two-star entrants

The lone new entry into the two-star category is Meta, a beloved modern Korean restaurant opened by chef Sun Kim, 

Sun also runs an Indian-Korean fusion outfit at Amoy Street named Tambi, where he is partnered up with chef Mano Thevar of two-Michelin-starred Thevar.

Three Michelin stars

As expected, the highest accolade is a tough achievement to snag and the Michelin Guide Singapore 2024 has the same three restaurants from last year retaining their three Michelin stars.

Restaurants retaining their three stars

  • Les Amis
  • Odette
  • Zen 

This also marks the fifth consecutive year — save for the cancelled 2020 — that Les Amis and Odette have taken home the coveted three stars since 2019.
