Thousands of foodies cast their votes and gave top nods to French chef Joel Robuchon’s Robuchon au Dome in Macau, naming it the top dining destination in Asia.
In The Miele Guide’s 5th annual Asia’s Top 20 Restaurants, Robuchon au Dôme took the top spot, knocking perennial favorite Iggy’s in Singapore off its perch.

The win follows an extensive facelift and name change last year. As Robuchon a Galera, the restaurant was “old and anachronous,” says Miele. Today, Dôme is “chic,

classy, modern and surprisingly casual.”

Hong Kong and Singapore lead the listings, meanwhile, each boasting five restaurants in the top 20 ranking. Dining destinations in Shanghai, Bali, Seoul, Tokyo, New Delhi and Chennai, India also get nods.
