"I am thrilled that Jin Xuan has once again been recognized by the world-renowned Michelin Star rating system this year, an achievement that demonstrates our continual commitment to culinary excellence. This recognition would not have been possible without our Ladies and Gentlemen in the restaurant operations and culinary teams, who are dedicated to crafting a memorable and exceptional dining experience for all our guests," said Andrew Houghton, General Manager of The Ritz-Carlton Shanghai, Pudong.
