Every new Michelin-recognised M’sian eatery in 2024, and our first 2-Starred restaurant


Last year, the Michelin Guide had debuted in Malaysia, giving recognition to food destinations in Kuala Lumpur and Penang.

On November 17, 2023, the Guide has released its second Malaysian edition. Here are all the restaurants named by the Michelin Guide Kuala Lumpur and Penang 2024, including Michelin Starred, Bib Gourmand, and Selected establishments.

A new cast of Michelin Selected eateries

Michelin Selected establishments are those who Michelin recognises have potential, but have yet to make the cut for the Bib Gourmand title or a Star.

With 25 new names joining this list for 2024, there is now a total of 77 Michelin Selected restaurants in Kuala Lumpur and Penang.

Fourteen new Bib Gourmand names

Not to be thought of as just some consolation prize, the Bib Gourmand is a coveted award given to restaurants that serve good food at moderate prices.

New entries for the local Bib Gourmand list were announced last week, which you can read about here.

Altogether, there are now 45 Bib Gourmand restaurants in Malaysia.

Some special categories

Aside from the Michelin Selected, Bib Gourmand, and Starred restaurants, there were also four special awards handed out during the Michelin Guide Ceremony 2024.

The Opening of the Year Award went to Ramesh Thangaraj, executive chef of Jwala.

Wan Mohd Zulkifeli, the restaurant manager at Gai by Darren Chin was awarded the Service Award for his front-of-house professionalism.

The Sommelier Award was claimed by Yap Cze Ying, the sommelier at Hide Kuala Lumpur.

Lastly, the Young Chef Award went to Johnson Wong Jia Liang of Gēn.

One restaurant joins the Michelin Starred club, three retained

Located on Jalan Perak, Kuala Lumpur, Beta is the only new name to join Malaysia’s cast of one-Michelin Star restaurants this year. It was a Michelin Selected restaurant in 2023.

Helmed by Chef Raymond Tham, Beta features dishes that champion Malaysian flavours and heritage.

For all the foodies who are sure to flock to this newly Starred restaurant, Michelin recommends heading to the lounge first for a round of cocktails and appetisers, before sampling the main courses.

Beta aside, three names retained their Michelin Stars. This includes Kuala Lumpur’s DC. by Darren Chin, and Penang’s Au Jardin and Auntie Gaik Lean’s Old School Eatery.

With that, Malaysia is now home to four one-Michelin Starred restaurants—two in Kuala Lumpur, two in Penang.

Malaysia’s first two-Michelin Starred restaurant

Perhaps one of the most exciting news of the day is Dewakan’s promotion from having one Michelin Star to becoming Malaysia’s very first restaurant with two Michelin Stars.

Located in Kuala Lumpur City Centre, Dewakan, of which Darren Teoh is the chef-patron, is a fine dining restaurant that serves modern Malaysian cuisine.

We would like to congratulate all the restaurants, chefs, and teams celebrated by the Michelin Guide Kuala Lumpur and Penang 2024.

As we witness more names getting their well-deserved recognition from the Michelin Guide, we hope Malaysia continues to establish itself on the world map as a gastronomical destination for foodies everywhere.
