Gajendera Singh, who began his career in New Delhi, has forged exceptional skills and knowledge in Indian cookery.

Singh has worked in an Indian restaurant in Aberdeen for two years before he moved south to Oxford and became a chef at the Tree Hotel. Forging his skills further over the year, Gajendera then became a Sous Chef in London at Moti Mahal Restaurant.

This increased responsibility gave him invaluable training in the fast-paced culinary world. His career rose further when he was appointed as a Sous Chef at Indian Essence, situated in the heart of Petts Wood. This restaurant is led by famed television chef and pioneer of Indian cuisine in this country, Atul Kochhar. It showcases traditional Indian cuisine with a pathbreaking menu, intended to excite its discerning clientele, yet satisfy traditional palates. It was awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand 2015, 2016 & 2017.

Gajendra’s career has now reached the next level with his appointment as Chef at Tapasya on Beverley High Road and Tapasya@Marina in Hull. His fresh, creative ideas that have been forged throughout his career, working with some of the best chefs in the country, are perfectly suited to the restaurants. In their part of the UK, they are famed for their offering of Indian food served with finesse that cannot be found in the other local Indian restaurants.

Chef Gajendera Singh brings impressive experience that makes him the ideal individual to lead Tapasya and Tapasya@Marina’s kitchen, maintaining their reputation for innovative Indian food served with a fine dining flare to exceed all fine dining expectations.

Gajendera Singh will add a fresh and innovative dimension to both Tapasya restaurants. He will be integral to moving forward and his appointment is expected to bring an extraordinary addition to the menu’s and kitchen team.
