- Very established and modern Asian restaurant
- Amazing kitchen, all the toys
- Generous and forward thinking owners that look after their staff
It is a modern well-equipped restaurant with a very stable kitchen brigade. The owners look after their staff. It is an incredible restaurant with a stunning fit out, and as a result, is one of the best in the area. They are market leaders and a destination in the Southwest of Sydney. On a busy night, expect to be doing 100 covers. On a mid-week, there are about 40 covers.
You will be comfortable with all areas of the kitchen. While the restaurant is a modern Asian, there are many western techniques used so you do not need to be David Thompson to apply for this. The main thing is you need to be a technically proficient sous chef (in Asian or fine dining) with a passion for Asian cuisine. A very strong mentor is present, someone who can help you to fine-tune your skills. If you have some Asian cuisine experience, that is all the better.
People Skills and Leadership
We are looking for someone who is calm and an intelligent sous chef who leads from the front and can effectively communicate with all types of people. This is an established kitchen and business that is running well, so we are looking for a “slowly, slowly” or gentle approach to any change. You need to be calm and controlled. There should be no yelling and screaming in this kitchen.
A well-known and high profile Chef is going to be your mentor. This chef will teach you the finer points of Asian cuisine. You will also get to learn about people management and how to run the numbers side of things, as well as running the business side of things.
As an indication, the sous chef will be looking at a salary between $70K-80K+S depending on experience. You would also be generally looking at a 42-45 hour a week and 5 weeks holidays.
