Namaste, Hello & Kia Ora, 

I am Dan Singh a qualified skilled Indian Cuisine Chef and a successful Restaurateur. I come from the northern part of India from a beautiful state called Uttarakhand, famous for Himalayan ranges, Ganges River, Yoga, Meditation and Holy Shrines.

I have done a Cookery Apprenticeship at a five star property, The Ambassador’s Sky Chef, Mumbai, India. It took me six months to even get used to the ways of a big city like Mumbai.

Cooking was never my first choice but as they say “you end up right where you’re meant to be.” Call it destiny – but my passion for cooking only grew after I learned Culinary Art. 

Once I completed my three years Apprenticeship I worked in an A Grade restaurant for some time but my passion opened further doors. I got the opportunity to come to New Zealand in 2004 as an Indian Cook and see this beautiful country that I proudly call home now. Indian cooking for me now wasn’t just restricted to a job title. I had a vision to create and spread Authentic Indian Cuisine to New Zealand. 

We started our first family-owned business back in 2008 and I moved to beautifully sunny Hawke’s Bay in 2011 with the vision to open my restaurant. I am so greatful to the local suppliers that getting fresh herbs, vegetable and seafood is not a problem at any time, this gives me a great boost to maintain the consistency in my dishes, “tasty food can be made any time but it is most necessary to maintain the taste and consistency, always”.
