The Miele Guide

The Miele Guide was created to better recognize and celebrate Asia’s best chefs and restaurants by evaluating restaurants across the region, then releasing an annual ranking of Asia’s Top 20 restaurants as well as the Top 5 rankings within individual countries.

Finalists are selected after four rounds of judging “which have been set in place to ensure that a credible, transparent system is used to showcase establishments that deliver true excellence and exceptional dining. The multiple rounds of judging also ensure that The Miele Guide accurately reflects the opinions of the dining public in Asia as well as the region’s most respected restaurant critics.” (

The 2013 Miele Guide praises Café Marco, saying, “Tuck into Asian, Japanese and western staples at the Cafe Marco, the signature outlet of Marco Polo Plaza Hotel. As befits its standing as a hotel cafe, there is something to please everyone on the la carte menu. Think sandwiches, pastas and soups alongside a nice selection of Filipino dishes such as native chicken soup with green papaya, lemongrass and chili leaves, and chicken and pork adobo with banana flowers and star anise. There is also spit-roasted chicken, Australian rib-eye and grilled pork tenderloin from western kitchen. Those who want a nibble of everything should check out the daily buffet.”
