Hot off the tails of Tokyo’s 2024 Michelin Guide is another highly anticipated list ranking the best restaurants in Asia. Unveiled on March 26 at a ceremony in Seoul, South Korea was the 2024 edition of Asia's 50 Best Restaurants. This year, nine restaurants in Japan made the list, with five of those being in Tokyo.

Taking the top spot on Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2024 list is Tokyo’s very own Sézanne, the dynamic French restaurant at Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Marunouchi, helmed by chef Daniel Calvert. Last year, the restaurant came in second place, but it has now clinched the coveted number one title.
