Odette is on a roll. Following its rise to fifth place on this year's Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list, it has now taken the 28th spot on the World's 50 Best. The French fine-dining restaurant housed in National Gallery Singapore is helmed by chef Julien Royer, who named the place after his grandmother. "It is a true honour and privilege to be recognised as one of the top 30 restaurants in the world," says Royer. "Every day we strive to outdo ourselves in a constant quest of excellence. This recognition is a reward for all of us who have worked so hard together in this quest."

Odette only one of seven restaurants that ranked on the prestigious list. Others include Gaggan in Bangkok, which claimed the fifth spot, the highest ever for an Asian restaurant; Den (17) in Tokyo, the highest climber on the list; Narisawa (22) in Tokyo; Ultraviolet (24) in Shanghai; Nihonryori RyuGin (41) in Tokyo and Nahm (49) in Bangkok.
