Inside Asia’s Top-5 best designed restaurants

1) Ammo, Hong Kong

We’ll have to give it up for Hong Kong for not only making it to our list thrice but topping it too with this latest entrant. Taking cues from Jean Luc Godard’s sci-fi classic Alphaville, this grand statement space created by Wang sits amidst an unmatched setting of the city.
