Glasgow restaurants gaining awards: Ka Pao has been promoted to a Bib for its Asian-inspired cooking, while Celentano's wins the award for its modern, Italian-influenced cooking, made with fine Scottish ingredients.

Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the Michelin Guides said: “We are excited to reveal these 16 new Bib Gourmand awards ahead of the full presentation of our 2022 selection. Bib Gourmands are an important part of our selection and are particularly popular with our readers and users, who are always on the lookout for wonderful food at great prices.

In 2021 Scottish chef Lorna McNee brought the accolade home to the city just over five months into her first head chef role at the west end restaurant.

The last restaurant to hold a star in the city was Gordon Ramsay’s Amaryllis which closed in 2004.
