RewardExpert just released its list of the top 15 airports in terms of food. Researchers used thousands of customer reviews to rank each of these airports on a scale of one to five, with five being a perfect score. They also revealed the best-reviewed restaurants in each airport.
The three major categories researchers analyzed when looking at these airports include food quality, price, and the diversity of cuisines offered. Each of these was also ranked on a scale of one to five.
Asian nations dominated this year’s list of the best airport food in the world. All four of the top ten spots on RewardExpert’s survey went to airports in Asia.
With a score of 4.77, the number one spot went to Tokyo’s Narita International Airport (IATA: NRT). Reviewers gave NRT a perfect score for its food quality and price, but only a 3.46 in terms of diversity.
What really impressed RewardExpert about NRT was the amount of high-quality Japanese restaurants for extremely reasonable prices. The number one restaurant in NRT went to Sushiden on the fourth floor of Terminal 2.
Second place went to Taoyuan International Airport (IATA: TYE) in Taipei, Taiwan. Like NRT, TYE had a strong showing in terms of quality and price, but it struggled with diversity.
TYE’s overall score was 4.10, but it only garnered 2.69 in the diversity category. The number one restaurant in TYE was Chun Shui Tang, which offers a plethora of Chinese and Taiwanese dishes at reasonable prices.
Interestingly, the third spot on this survey goes to the third most trafficked airport in the world: Hong Kong International (IATA: HKG). Thanks to its high international clientele, HKG was a stronger diversity of cuisines than TYE or NRT. However, HKG’s restaurants struggled a bit in the cost department with a score of 3.35. Despite it’s plethora of options, however, HKG’s best-reviewed restaurants focus on Asian cuisine.
Here are the rest of the top ten airports starting from number four and ending with number ten: Singapore’s Changi Airport, Amsterdam Airport Schipol, London’s Gatwick Airport, Sydney’s Kingsford-Smith Airport, the Adolfo Suarez Madrid-Barajas Airport, Munich Airport, and London’s Heathrow Airport.
