Macau’s casino venues continue to be the best places in town to eat, according to the latest Michelin guide for Macau and Hong Kong, unveiled yesterday. The new list however contained no newly-starred Macau establishments. And the same 11 restaurants were attributed the same Michelin star ratings this year as last year.
Only one of Macau’s Michelin-starred restaurants is located outside a casino hotel or gaming resort – King, at AIA Tower on Macau peninsula.
For the second year in a row, Macau had two restaurants awarded three stars. It is Michelin’s top accolade for food it considers “exceptional cuisine”. Both outlets, French favourite Robuchon au Dôme and Chinese fine dining outlet The Eight, are located at Grand Lisboa casino hotel, owned by gaming operator SJM Holdings Ltd.
Grand Lisboa features one other Michelin-starred restaurant, The Kitchen, which retained its one-star rating. Tim’s Kitchen, at sister property Lisboa casino hotel, also kept its one star.
Wynn Macau casino hotel’s signature Chinese restaurants, Golden Flower and Wing Lei, were again awarded two Michelin stars and one Michelin star respectively.
City of Dreams, operated by Melco Crown Entertainment Ltd, also had two restaurants awarded Michelin stars. French restaurant The Tasting Room and Cantonese outlet Jade Dragon each retained their one-star rating.
Indian restaurant The Golden Peacock, at Sands China Ltd’s Venetian Macao, retained its single star. Zi Yat Heen, operated by Four Seasons and located at Plaza Macao, also a Sands China property, again received two stars from the Michelin inspectors.
The first edition of the guide for Macau and Hong Kong, published in 2009, gave star ratings to six Macau restaurants.
Among the city’s casino operators, only Galaxy Entertainment Group Ltd and MGM China Holdings Ltd do not feature Michelin-starred restaurants.
