Pulling the hospitality industry out of the gloomy pandemic-induced slump, the eighth edition of Asia's 50 Best Restaurants saw two big winners from Mumbai and Delhi clinching the deal for India as a serious culinary hot spot. A definite pat on the back that brings back signs of optimism and revival to the resilient restaurant industry in Asia.

Indian Accent from Delhi stood at the 18th position this year, while Masque, Mumbai led by chef Prateek Sadhu grabbed a spot at the 32nd position. Creating cuisine-agnostic fare in their tasting menus, Masque is Sadhu’s vision of a culinary theatre, which fuses science and creativity, in a space dedicated to bold kitchen experiments called the Masque Lab, along with sustainable sourcing and cooking practices.
