We reveal the five-star eateries that are ready to make this your most memorable dining experience yet


The One That’s Technologically Advanced

Ultraviolet by Paul Pairet, Shanghai

This space-age restaurant treats just 10 diners to a multi-sensory event each night. At a secret location in Shanghai, Pairet serves up an avant-garde menu of 20 different dishes. Thanks to projectors, speakers and a dry-scent system, each dish comes with its own new piece of theatre – whether its crashing waves being projected on to the restaurant wall when they’re serving up their micro ‘fish and ships’ dish or cigar smoke scent piped into the room when they serve dessert. Priced around USD$500 each.
