Tetsuya Wakuda has been honoured with the The Diners Club® Lifetime Achievement Award for Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants 2015. The award is voted for by members of the Diners Club Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants Academy, which comprises over 300 restaurant and culinary industry leaders throughout Asia.
On winning the award, Wakuda said that he would not be where he is today without his team at both Tetsuya’s in Sydney, and Singapore’s Waku Ghin.
“Thank you so much for such a great honour. This year will be 28 years at my own business and it’s just something that I believe in, and something that I love to do. But it is actually not my talent, but… everybody together, so this award is for the team,” said Wakuda.
Tetsuya will receive the award at the Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants awards ceremony tonight at the Capella Hotel in Singapore.
