What is Michelin Guide?
The Michelin Guide is a prestigious award given to hotel kitchens and restaurants by the French tire manufacturer Michelin. Businesses evaluated within the framework of various criteria are scored and categorized with a system called Michelin star. A restaurant’s gaining a Michelin star, or an increase in the number of stars gives that business an international reputation and advantage, while reducing or removing a star causes a serious loss of reputation.
