Head Chef – Michelin-Starred Venue, South East Asia, Woodfire Cooking

Job Type





  • A head chef’s true international career kick starter with a Michelin-starred mentor.
  • Stunning restaurant and amazing kitchen set up!
  • Work with some of the world’s best produce in a world class city!

This is an overseas relocation role to South East Asia!

The Restaurant and The Location

This stunning restaurant is in South East Asia and a strong contender in the Asia top 50 and world top 50 restaurants.

Food Style

They have designed an amazing menu, showcasing some of the best products available in the world. With a heavy emphasis on seafood and wood fire grill, it’s exciting, high-end, modern Australian BBQ style cuisine.

The Role

As with all Head Chef roles these days, it is very hands on, with focus on the following:

  • Ensuring consistency through training and systems
  • Providing world class dining experience and interacting with guests
  • Creating high-end food that is on point with the direction set by the owners
  • Making sure that the kitchen hits labor and food targets
  • Hands-on running of the kitchen; a mid size team so it is a totally hands-on role
  • The ability to work with the owners of developing the business
  • Maintaining a cohesive and inclusive relationship with front of house with minimal fuss. Aggressive behaviour is not tolerated!
  • This role would be perfectly suited to a single, adventure loving chef, looking for that next challenge. With an opportunity to be mentored by a Michelin-starred chef, in one of the world’s most stunning locations!

There will be elements of reporting, costings, etc. but this can be taught if required.

There are some great people in this kitchen but they do need training and development. As with most expat roles, in order to get the food to where you want to be, training will be a very big part of your role.

You will also be involved in the big picture aspects of the restaurant, working closely with the GM and owner who are both from extensive hospitality backgrounds with very successful and well-known properties.

The Ideal Candidate

One of the 1st qualities the client mentioned was that they are ideally looking for a Chef coming from a strong upmarket restaurant background. The experience they are looking for is at a senior level Sous Chef and up in hatted or Michelin star background.

This is a ‘foodie’ opportunity, with a chance to really create something very exciting! Moreover, you need to be a calm and patient operator. There is no room for old school management styles, such as yelling and screaming.  Someone who can patiently lead a team with language barriers and nurture them.

A unique opportunity to grow in your career and save a significant amount of money.
