The 2021 Shanghai Michelin guide has dropped. The fifth year of the Shanghai guide sees the amount of star-worthy restaurants in our fine city grow by three from last year to a total of 43. Of those, 32 hold one star – with Canton Table, Meet the Bund, Ren He Guan (Zhaojiabang Lu) and Tea Culture (Beijing Dong Lu) as newcomers – whilst Da Vittorio and Bao Li Xuan push the total number of two-star restaurants to ten, and Paul Pairet's Ultraviolet keeps its reign at the top as the only restaurant in the city with three stars.

Michelin also introduced two special awards this year. The Young Chef Award that 'recognises their personality and the identity of their culinary creations'. And the Service Award for 'making the restaurant visit a true experience'.

We'll save the analysis and give you good people what you want. Here's the list of Shanghai's starred restaurants as named by the Michelin Guide Shanghai 2021.

All new entries on the list are marked with an asterisk.
