“The people are so friendly. You have rainbow cuisines and a diaspora of influences which are stimulating and inspiring.”

When his father died, Reza took over the family business, managing The Star of India, one of London’s most successful and prestigious restaurants.

“I almost became involved in the food business by default because I was still in school. I was fond of music and arts and I never thought I was going to go into food. Although I loved food and liked cooking, I didn’t realise that it was going to become a career. What I love doing is travelling and learning more about a country, the history and the food and putting my slant on it.”
