Ultraviolet by Paul Pairet retained its three-star status in the 2019 edition of the Michelin Shanghai Guide, while six restaurants became new members of the elite gourmet guidebook.

T’ang Court, one of the two three-star Michelin restaurants in the 2018 guide, was downgraded to two stars.

The Michelin Guide first launched its Shanghai edition in 2016, with initial controversies over its preference for Cantonese cuisine.

The third edition of the Guide features one three-star, eight two-star and twenty-five one-star restaurants, covering a variety of Chinese and international cuisine restaurants (see full list below).

Xin Rong Ji, a Taizhou cuisine restaurant on Nanyang Road, was initiated into the elite club with two Michelin stars.

Amazing Chinese Cuisine (Chiu Chow), Il Ristorante-Niko Romito (Italian), Ji Pin Court (Cantonese), Le Comptoir de Pierre Gagnaire (French) and Moose (Huai Yang) are also fresh inclusions of the Guide, each awarded one Michelin star.

Ultraviolet, now the only three Michelin starred restaurant in Shanghai, is known for its innovative 20-course menu and mysterious location.

In June 2018, The Michelin launched its first Guangzhou Guide, making it the second Mainland China city reviewed by the prestigious gourmet guidebook series. A total of eight Guangzhou restaurants were given one-star status by the Guide.

Diners can choose to download the official ‘Michelin CN’ app or purchase the bilingual print version of the Shanghai guide (¥168.00) to see locations, pictures and reviews of the starred restaurants, in addition to the Bib Gourmand and The Michelin Plate recommendations.
