I have worked at the Fish House in Stanley park as a Sous Chef, Bauhaus in Gastown as a Chef de Partie, Bluewater Cafe as a Chef de Partie, West Oak as a sous chef and in Thailand at "Gaggan" a two Michelin star restaurant and "Gaa" a 1 Michelin star restaurant as a stage. More recently I was the executive chef at Mumbai Local in Downtown Vancouver where I did contemporary style modern Indian food. During my time as executive chef, we were reviewed by the Globe and Mail through Alexandra Gill, one of the citie's best food critics.
Throughout the past two years, I have collaborated with some incredible chefs to host pop up dinners which were innovative and unique dining experiences.

Chef Tushar's reviews
Tushar was a lovely, gentle, kind and creative chef. We really enjoyed his company, education and overall lovely manner. The meal was delicious. Highly recommended.

We had such a great experience with Chef Tushar. He made the most interesting and delicious meal. It was exactly what we wanted for our anniversary. His preparation and timing for the 4-course meal were perfect and each plate looked like a piece of art. You could tell the quality and freshness of the ingredients and we were so happy to have a little leftover (it was just as good the next day). It was so comforting that he could easily accommodate a dairy allergy without changing much of the meal so that everyone could appreciate the full flavor of what was being presented.
As an extra bonus he was able to make the most delicious mac and cheese for our three toddlers (although they were much too excited to eat it that evening, they gobbled it up the next day).
