Michelin launched its fourth edition of the Shanghai Guide, with Ultraviolet as the only restaurant granted three stars, while T’ang Court and Yi Long Court are downgraded from two stars to one.

For the third year in a role, the restaurant Ultravoilet by French chef Paul Pairet has retained its three-star status by the Michelin Guide Shanghai.

‘Paul Pairet’s cuisine has been awarded three stars for three years now, and this is a testament to the open-mindedness of the Michelin Guide,’ said Gwendal Poullennec, international director of the guides.

T’ang Court only gains one star in the 2020 edition, after being downgraded to two stars in the 2019 Guide. The Cantonese restaurant was given three stars in the inaugural Michelin Guide Shanghai 2017.

One of the other two-star Cantonese restaurants in last year’s Guide, Yi Long Court, also lost one star.

Meanwhile, Ji Pin Court and Taian Table, both one star last year, were upgraded to join the eight-strong two star Michelin league in Shanghai.

A total of 31 restaurants are given one star in the 2020 Guide, including several new members to the starred club such as Maison Lameloise and Bao Li Xuan, and returning member such as Jin Xuan.

‘With 31 types of cuisine rewarded in the pages of the Michelin Guide Shanghai 2020, this selection also highlights the great diversity offered to gourmets, with tables that perfectly represent local cuisine and others that offer flavors from around the world,’ said Poullennec.

After launching its second Guangzhou guide in July, Michelin announced earlier this month that it plans to launch the first Beijing edition of the guide on 28th November this year.
