Now in its second year, Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants awards, sponsored by S.Pellegrino & Acqua Panna and organised by William Reed Business Media, announced its 2014 winners at an awards ceremony in Singapore in February.

Of all the countries judged, China led the pack with 16 of its restaurants featured in the award’s top 50, followed by Japan with 10 and Singapore with 8.

Ten countries made it onto the list for the first time in 2014 including Korea (Jungsik, No.20), and Taiwan (Le Moût, No.24).

The list was compiled by The Diners Club World’s 50 Best Restaurants Academy, a group of over 900 international leaders in the restaurant industry.

The Academy comprises 26 separate regions around the world and each region has its own panel of 36 members made up of food critics, chefs, restaurateurs, each of whom has seven votes.

Of the seven votes, at least three must be used to recognise restaurants outside of each voter’s region.

Votes were taken for restaurants in Bangladesh, Burma/Myanmar, Brunei, Bhutan, Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Laos, Macao, Malaysia, the Maldives, Micronesia, Nepal, Pakistan, the Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, Timor-Leste and Vietnam.
