Singapore, 4 June 2018 – The Peak Selections: Gourmet & Travel, a supplement of The Peak by SPH Magazines Pte Ltd, is proud to present its highly anticipated G Restaurant Awards 2018.

Into its ninth year, the annual awards recognises the best dining experiences in Singapore. A total of 48 honours were handed out at the awards ceremony this evening at the Sheraton Towers Grand Ballroom.
Odette received the top honour of Restaurant of the Year 2018 for its unique take on modern French cuisine. Other category winners include Gunther’s for Best Dinner Experience (Western) while Hua Ting and Ushidoki Wagyu Kaiseki both clinched wins for Best Dinner Experience (Asian); Best Business Lunch went to Origin Grill & Bar (Western) and Li Bai (Asian) and Best New Restaurant was awarded to Nouri (Western) and Ishi (Asian). Mezza9 at Grand Hyatt Singapore won Best Champagne Brunch. A total of 14 restaurants appeared on the list for the first time.
The G Hallmark of Excellence went to Hashida Sushi for having consistently met stellar standards since its opening.
Gourmet & Travel collaborated with veteran food critics Wong Ah Yoke of The Straits Times and Jaime Ee of The Business Times for a shortlist of top restaurants in respective categories. Over the course of six months, editors and writers accompanied ambassadors, head honchos such as Leslie Yeo, Michael Tay and Kathryn Yap, as well as wine experts Edwin Soon, Sandy Chng and Nicola Lee for incognito tastings at the nominated restaurants before the final selection of winners.
Group Editor Ms Joanna Lee Miller said: “We've seen a dynamic but highly competitive dining scene this past year therefore restaurants that are consistently upholding high standards should be acknowledged. Some stalwarts have upped their game with fresh new concepts to stay ahead of the curve while even more casual chic restaurants of
note have emerged, placing a stronger emphasis on specialty ingredients, creative offerings and the overall dining experience.”
Reviews of winning restaurants are published in the June 2018 issue of The Peak, and online at
The Peak’s digital edition can be downloaded via Apple Newsstand and Magzter.
The print and digital editions of The Peak are priced at S$25 each.
