The 10th annual ceremony for the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants awards 2022 recently took place, with a number of special accolades going to restaurants in Bangkok.

The awards ceremony for the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2022 unveils took place in a virtual ceremony this year, with a special screening and event held in Bangkok at the Pullman Hotel.

Tokyo’s Den snagged the prestigious number one spot on the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list this year, followed by Bangkok’s very own Sorn, and another in Tokyo, Florilège, to complete the top three.

Den’s chef Zaiyu Hasegawa is known for his irreverent kaiseki menus—one of his most famous dishes is his version of fried chicken served in a box that mimics KFC, that he calls ‘Dentucky Fried Chicken.’ The restaurant was named Number 1 by Asia’s 50 Best, on March 29. Last year, Den was Number 3

It was the second time a Japanese venue claimed the top spot.

A total of nine restaurants are present on the Asia’s Best Restaurants 2022 list. Most notably, the most celebrated restaurant of the night, Sorn took the No.2 spot, bringing Thailand into the highly revered Top 3.

Sorn is followed by Le Du (No. 4), Sühring (No. 7), Nusara (No. 10), Blue by Alain Ducasse (No. 25), Sushi Masato (No. 29), Samrub Samrub Thai (No. 31), Gaa (No. 33), and Raan Jay Fai (No. 46).
