The results for the 2018 MICHELIN Guide Shanghai have been announced! This is the Guide’s second year in Shanghai following the inaugural edition in 2017.

This year, 30 of Shanghai’s restaurants were awarded the coveted stars—up from 26 last year—while another 27 were awarded the Bib Gourmand.

Paul Pairet’s cutting-edge Ultraviolet made the leap to three stars from two last year. ”It's truly unexpected,” he says. “I was not sure that Michelin agreed with our very special format, but I am very happy and glad for our team." T’ang Court in the luxury The Langham hotel also retained its three-star status.

The four new additions to the Guide are Bo Shanghai, Dashu Wujie, Jean-Georges and Yongfu, awarded one Michelin star each. Expect a long wait list for at Alvin Leung’s Bo Shanghai, which sits only 10 diners at a time. Many were surprised when Jean-Georges, did not get a star in last year’s Guide; they’ve made the cut this year. Yongfu is known for its authentic Ningbo cuisine made with the best seasonal ingredients while well-loved vegetarian chain restaurant Wujie gets a star for its outlet on the Bund.

This year's Bib Gourmand list includes three new establishments: Hao Sheng, which offers Shanghai cuisine, Le Patio & La Famille,  serving Hangzhou cuisine, and Tandoor, a restaurant serving Indian specialties.

"Shanghai is a city that is developing fast and has real gastronomic potential thanks to the dynamism of the growing hotel and restaurant sector," comments Michael Ellis, International Director of the MICHELIN Guides. "The standard of the local cuisine is steadily increasing while the chefs are developing their creativity and giving free rein to their audacity—much to the delight of a local clientele that is ever more curious to discover new flavors and different experiences."
