Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants is an award-giving ceremony to restaurants and culinary individuals for their excellent performance. These awards give spotlight to restaurants in Asia and help to boost tourism in Asia. The first Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants started in 2013, and restaurants in Thailand have been on this list, not only in the top 50 but also top 10 best restaurants every year.
