Epicurean Awards 2017 - Ki-Sho Named Best Of The Best Fine Dining Restaurant in Singapore
by

The Best Of The Best Fine Dining Restaurant in Singapore 2017 is Japanese sushi restaurant Ki-sho, in the Epicurean Awards given out by Restaurant Association of Singapore (RAS).

Ki-sho was also awarded the Best Japanese Fine Dining Restaurant.

For the Epicurean Awards, a total of 21 awards were presented to winners, including new categories Best Mediterranean Restaurant, and Best Seafood Restaurant as well as stalwarts like Best New F&B Establishment (Casual /Casual Fine) and Best Buffet.

Winners were judged based on the following criteria: restaurant concept, menu and service quality; with categories such as quality and taste, presentation, staff product knowledge, cleanliness and service attitude taken into account.

Judging is done via a month long mystery dining process that began in October 2017 by a panel of 20 culinary personalities.

Being a judge myself (I won’t say which categories), it has been an enlightening and enriching experience.

Interestingly, I wasn’t even recognised once – you could tell from service. I can share that restaurants which fare well, are those which are consistent in all segments, from taste, service, and presentation.

There was this particular restaurant in which the service staff, though junior, was able to answer questions adequately and provided good recommendations based on my preference. The level of training reflects in the other aspects as well.
