Michelin guides aren't the same in every country. Each major country has its own guide and the stars are not given by Michelin France, they are given by international critics who don't need to be French nor have any reason to favor France. They favor fucking good cuisine and that's it.
France has 30 3-stars Michel restaurants. How many Japan has ? 30 as well, despite entering Michelin guides only in 2008 ! Wow, so much discrimination against non-French... What about stars/inhabitants ? Do they favor France ? Nope ! Japan is actually 1st with almost DOUBLE the rate of France. And France is... 6th. Behind even Malta, who has no reputation for cuisine and doesn't benefit from any bias.
That being said, whether you go to English "Fat Duck", Japanese "L'Effervescence", Danish "Noma" or Germany "Victor's Fine Dining", kitchen crew are organized in the French tradition, used French words, dress exactly the same as French cooks, use many technics and tools from French. The vast majority of starred-chefs, even cooking Asian cuisine, studied it in France or in French restaurants abroad.
There is a reason why people say "restaurant" everywhere. Hint: it isn't a chinese word.
