EXECUTIVE CHEF

Partner Chef
We have teamed up with Rishi Naleendra, a brilliant young Sri Lankan Chef who incidentally just won his first Michelin Star (and is the first Sri Lankan chef to do so). He has received international acclaim for his restaurant Cheek By Jowl in Singapore, which is famed for its modern Australian Faire. We are huge fans of his work and his spirit and are excited to unveil our new product with him.

Meet Chef Viraj- one of 3 in his family, Viraj’s love of cooking began at a young age when he began watching cooking programs. After joining the kitchen as a helper in Colombo he progressed quickly in Dubai and Bahrain. He joins us as Head Chef after returning to Colombo from ‘Cut’ by Wolfgang Puck. His passion is training and educating both his team and customers. Chef Viraj is a fantastic addition to our team at Botanik – chat to him next time you visit us!
