“I started my career in Australia at the Unkai Sushi Bar located on the 36th floor of the former ANA Hotel which gave me the most fabulous views of Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. For me, there is no better way to cement my career than working at Sydney Opera House. I am honoured to be part of Opera Kitchen, not just because of the location, but to be able to work alongside some of Sydney’s most renowned chef’s and food producers.”
