Michelin-starred chef and restaurateur Rohit Ghai is hailed as one of the UK’s most creative and accomplished Indian chefs. Ghai has spent a decade at the helm of various Michelin-starred Indian kitchens - having honed his craft at some of the most prestigious hotels and restaurants in India - including The Oberoi Group and the The Taj Hotels.

Chef Ghai began his international career working with Michelin-starred restaurant Benares in London in 2008. He then moved on to lead several other Michelin-starred kitchens, including multi-award winning Gymkhana, Trishna, and the JKS Group, where he developed innovative menus and became accomplished in all areas of operations, recruitment and managing teams across different sites. He then went on to launch the Leela Groups’s first London venture, Jamavar, in 2016, where he became the fastest Indian chef to win a Michelin star - being awarded the accolade within 10 months of the restaurant’s opening. Ghai then opened Bombay Bustle to critical acclaim.



Ghai’s highly anticipated solo restaurant, Kutir, meaning ‘a small cottage’ in Sanskrit, opened in late 2018, and it received instant success. In 2019, he launched Koolcha - a street food concept offering Indian favorites such as kulchas, Chowpati vada pav as well as innovative additions like the chicken popcorn masala.

His creative and refined cooking has been applauded by celebrities, dignitaries and food critics. His revolutionary, precise and beautifully presented cooking regularly received praised from media. He has been featured in BBC Good Food, Foodism, and Daily Telegraph. Chef Ghai is also often invited to appear on television. He has featured on high profile shows including BBC One’s MasterChef and Channel 4’s Tricks of the Restaurant Trade. He recently released his first cookbook titled, Tarkari: Innovative Vegetarian and Vegan Indian Dishes with Heart and Soul.
