My Food Philosophy

Food is a fascinating blend of simplicity and subtleness.  I firmly believe in fresh, seasonal, natural flavours and top-quality ingredients when planning a menu.

I want to keep the menus short, experiential and seasonal so that my guests get a new variety and experience, frequently.

Continuous research and learning every day is what I do to keep ahead of the competition.  I keep the recipes as traditional as possible and presentation as innovative as possible.  The amalgamation of world cooking and presentation style with traditional native recipes creates an edge for my food.

I always train my team to produce with a smile on their face, passion in their mind, warmth in their heart and cutting-edge technology at hand, to ensure every the guest enjoys our food with pleasure.
