Rudy Hariyanto

With 12 years of chef experience, my true passion lies in crafting exciting new recipes + menus, inspired by seasonal ingredients, blending traditional + modern techniques to create truly unique dishes.

I firmly believe that by focusing on one or two key ingredients, a dish can truly shine. Simplicity, combined with an intriguing touch, is what I strive for.

Above all, I cherish the art of creating within the seasons, ensuring every plate is a celebration of the freshest flavours.
