Chef Santosh’s story is very inspirational, born and raised in a small village in Nepal called Karjanha.

Santosh moved to India at age 14 and took a job as a kitchen porter at a five-star hotel. Inspired by the chefs he worked with, Santosh was promoted to tandoori assistant, which is where his love for food really began.

After 13 years of cooking in hotels in India and Montenegro, Santosh moved to the UK, starting his career at Dishoom, before moving onto Benares, working under Michelin starred chef Atul Kochar, always curious about all different cuisines from around the world, he decided to learn about French cuisine, and joined Brasserie Blanc, owned by Raymond Blanc.

He then spent two years at renowned City restaurant Cinnamon Kitchen, working with Chef Vivek Singh.

After two years at Cinnamon Kitchen, Santosh moved on to become Executive Chef at Baluchi, a contemporary fine-dining Indian concept at the five-star LaLit Hotel in London, housed in the Grade II listed former St. Olave’s Grammar School’s Assembly Hall.
