Michelin-starred chef and restaurateur Rohit Ghai is hailed as one of the UK’s most creative and accomplished Indian chefs. 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. 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 opened in late 2018, and it received instant success. In 2019, he launched Koolcha - a street food concept offering Indian favorites.
