The highly-anticipated unveiling of the Michelin Guide’s 15th edition for Hong Kong and Macau culminated in a live event hosted at the Grand Lisboa Palace Resort Macau and Grand Lisboa Macau on April 26, 2023. This is the first time the ceremony has returned to a physical format in three years because of the pandemic. It was attended by the city’s top chefs, restaurateurs, and food enthusiasts. 

The 2023 edition recognises 95 restaurants across the two territories, comprising 78 venues for Hong Kong and 17 spots for Macau. 

In Hong Kong, nine new one-star additions were announced - six newly awarded and three promoted – including contemporary Italian restaurant Noi by celebrated Argentinian chef Paulo Airaudo, Italian restaurant Estro serving elevated Neapolitan cuisine by Naples-born chef Antimo Maria Merone, Japanese omakase restaurant Godenya by chef Goshima Shinya, contemporary European restaurant Neighborhood, and Chinese restaurants The Chairman (who got a new star for their new address), D.H.K. (which closed the same day it received its star) and The Demon Celebrity by chef Alvin Leung and with chef Cheng Kam Fu, among others.

Chef Hideaki Sato’s innovative Japanese-French restaurant Ta Vie was promoted to three Michelin stars. Meanwhile, chef-owner Alvin Leung’s newly relocated Bo Innovation and Lai Ching Heen (renamed from Regent Hong Kong’s legendary Yan Toh Heen) were given two stars, while The St. Regis Hong Kong’s Rùn is promoted from one to two Michelin stars.

Along with the reveal, Michelin introduced three new awards. In Hong Kong, Jacky Luk from the three-Michelin-starred restaurant Forum was honoured with the Sommelier Award and Steve Lee from one-Michelin-starred restaurant Hansik Goo took home the Young Chef Award. Kit Li from the two-Michelin-starred restaurant Sichuan Moon in Macau bagged the Service Award. Restaurants Roganic, Mora, and Amber were awarded the Michelin Green Star, recognising their commitment to sustainability and continued efforts in combining culinary excellence with eco-friendly practices.
