It’s not often you see your Head Chef jumping off the pass and hitting the decks, but that is what makes TAZ a true gamechanger. It doesn’t stop there; you can catch him donning his favourite bandana before hosting a sushi masterclass, and then hot footing it back to the kitchen to serve up a menu, that if you close your eyes can take you back to that street food market in Cambodia.
If you’re good enough, you’re old enough. At just 27, Lucy is one of our youngest operations managers. In less than four years, she’s risen from accounts manager to oversee top clients including restaurants and rooftop bars. She manages to impress everyone on a daily basis

We love to help people who think outside of the bread bin. Aaron started for us back in 2018 as a front of house team member.

We’re completely sold on his talents.
