26 Restaurants Receive Stars In China's First Michelin Guide


China's first Michelin Guide for the city of Shanghai was released Wednesday.

Twenty-six restaurants were awarded Michelin stars, but only one received the top honor of three Michelin stars: T'ang Court in The Langham Hotel. The Cantonese restaurant has only six tables.

Six restaurants were awarded two Michelin stars, including Canton 8, now the world's cheapest restaurant with a rating of two Michelin stars. Italian fine dining restaurant 8½ Otto e Mezzo Bombana and the multi-sensory restaurant Ultraviolet — which projects images on the walls and pumps out fragrances "to enhance the dining experience" — also received two stars, the South China Morning Post reported.

The Michelin Guide currently awards stars to restaurants in 28 different countries.
