About this Guide

Singapore's Top Restaurants - - Contents -

All the restau­rants fea­tured in this guide were vis­ited and care­fully re­viewed by our tast­ing panel. Restau­rants were con­sid­ered in their re­spec­tive cat­e­gories of fine din­ing, smart and ca­sual, and scored ac­cord­ingly.

Taste may be sub­jec­tive, but qual­ity is not. As a re­sult, some restau­rants were im­me­di­ately dis­qual­i­fied due to poor food qual­ity and hy­giene, and/or bad ser­vice.

The as­sess­ment of each restau­rant took place as an incog­nito tast­ing. Our panel­lists did not an­nounce their pres­ence at the restau­rant; nei­ther did they ac­cept hosted ses­sions for the pur­poses of re­view­ing the restau­rant. This is to en­sure that they ex­pe­ri­ence the restau­rant like reg­u­lar cus­tomers and score it ac­cord­ingly.

Our tast­ing panel was care­fully se­lected to en­sure a cred­i­ble cross-sec­tion of din­ers in­clud­ing in­dus­try ex­perts, F&B in­sid­ers, food jour­nal­ists, chefs, well-trav­elled gour­mands and more. They fol­lowed a strin­gent, com­pre­hen­sive scor­ing process to rate their over­all din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence based on cri­te­ria such as taste, pre­sen­ta­tion, menu co­her­ence, ser­vice and am­bi­ence.

Con­flicts of in­ter­est were duly taken into ac­count when match­ing our tast­ing teams to restau­rants.

The fi­nal scores were de­ter­mined af­ter sev­eral rounds of de­lib­er­a­tion from a com­mit­tee of judges.
