EAST ASIAN culinary giants China and Japan have dominated a prestigious ranking of the best restaurants in the world, accounting for almost a third of the top 1,000 eateries globally.
Known as the “mecca” of sushi in Japan, Tokyo’s Kyubey was ranked the third best restaurant on the planet with an almost-perfect score of 99.50, following Guy Savoy in France and Le Bernardin in the United States. Joël Robuchon and Kyo Aji in Japan also both made the top 20.

Beijing, China’s Huai Yang Fu at Andingmen was the best-ranked in that country with 98.50. One of the researchers behind La Liste, Jorg Zipprick, toldthat in 2018 “the rise and rise of China is the big story”.
The ranking has been released annually since 2015 and is sanctioned by the French Foreign Ministry, seen to be a response to the British list of.
Its founders claim is thebecause it uses a computer algorithm to draw on data from hundreds of food guides from 160 countries.
La Liste draws on data from more than 400 international dining guides and respected publications, standardised online review scores, crowd-sourced reviews from sites like TripAdvisor and Yelp, and the personal opinions of thousands of chefs.

Along with the United States, Japan and China have the highest number of best restaurants for 2018.
“Up to now China has been one of the most difficult countries to get data from,” added Zipprick, noting however that homegrown online food guides had changed this.
“Asia has a lot more restaurants than Europe and it is only logical that La Liste will reflect that.”
