The Michelin Guide Kuala Lumpur & Penang 2023

Updated: Jan 9

It's finally here! The guide that many Malaysians have been waiting for was unveiled last night at the Berjaya Times Square Hotel in spectacular fashion.


Kuala Lumpur and Penang based chefs and restaurants had the spotlight cast on them, with the first guide seeing four restaurants, two in Kuala Lumpur and two in Penang, being awarded each a one star.


A big congrats to everyone who made it! Now, let's get into the full list of announcements.
