The World’s 50 Best Restaurants 2023 unveils the 51-100 ranking
This year on the extended list, Europe takes the lead with 21 restaurants, followed by Asia, which is represented by 15 restaurants. North America sees 6 restaurants on the list, South America sees 5. The highest new entry comes from Lima, restaurant Mérito, which ranked at no. 59.
Following the launch of the Middle East & North Africa 50 Best Restaurants list in only 2022, the region is growing as a culinary destination. Dubai’s Ossiano ranks as a new entry at no. 87.
William Drew, Director of Content for the World’s 50 Best Restaurants notes, “All the establishments announced today have demonstrated outstanding hospitality and represent some of the greatest dining experiences across the globe. It gives us immense pleasure to recognise their achievements.”
Asian entries on the list: 4 Bangkok restaurants make the list, including 2 new entries
Asia is represented by 15 restaurants on the 51-100 list, with 4 entries from Thailand. There are two newcomers, Potong (no. 88), and Nusara (no. 74), as well as Sühring (no. 74), and Sorn (no. 56). Whilst the latter two are familiar names on the list (Sorn was the only Thailand restaurant to rank within the top 50 last year), fine dining lovers will have anticipated that both Potong and Nusara may make an appearance. After all, Nusara was crowned the no.3 best restaurant on the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list just earlier this year.
The highest ranking restaurant in Asia is Tokyo’s Narisawa (no. 51).

Thereby, the new additions to the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list do not come as a great surprise. In total, there were 9 Bangkok restaurants on the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list.
