The MICHELIN Guide Singapore 2022 sees two restaurants promoted to two stars and seven new ones awarded with a star for a total of 52 Michelin-starred eateries in the city state, up from 49 last year.
The 6th edition of the MICHELIN Guide Singapore was announced in a ceremony last evening that brought the total number of Michelin-starred restaurants in Singapore to 52, in a sure sign that Singapore’s gastronomic scene continues to grow by leaps and bounds since the list was introduced in 2016.
But the new list holds few surprises.
The 2022 guide saw Rishi Naleendra’s whimsically progressive Cloudstreet and modern Indian restaurant Thevar by Mano Thevar both get bumped up from one star to two stars, a trajectory anticipated by industry watchers. A total of seven new restaurants gained their stars. Four of them – Hamamoto, Marguerite, Nae:um, and Rêve – make their debut on the guide; Burnt Ends reclaim their stars after moving to its new Dempsey location, while two – Euphoria and La Dame de Pic – gained their stars after being on the guide’s secondary selection list last year.
Three restaurants dropped out of the list – Italian restaurant Garibaldi, contemporary European restaurant Corner House, and the Tanglin offshoot of sushi restaurant Shinji by Kanesaka.

In an earlier announcement, MICHELIN named 67 establishments in its Bib Gourmand selection for Michelin Guide Singapore, which included 22 restaurants, 40 hawker centre stalls, and five street food establishments.
“What a pleasure to be back in Singapore after this unprecedented crisis. This destination hasn’t at all lost what seduced our inspectors in the first place: a wonderfully blossoming diversity of cuisine types, renowned chefs keen on displaying their passion and skills, and young and promising talents ready to realise their dreams and polish their know-how,” says Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the MICHELIN Guide.
“There is no doubt that Singapore is still a culinary gem, and thanks to the particularly impressive resilience of all the professionals from the industry, local and international gourmets will be able to experience unforgettable gastronomic journeys in the Lion City once again,” Poullennec added.
