Nilesh Singhvi is an accomplished chef with 20 years of experience. Although he has managed and cooked various cuisines, his passion remains for preparing his native cuisine – Indian. Nilesh’s main objective is to deliver high quality, authentic & innovative food resulting in customer delight.

Chef Singhvi worked for the Taj Group of Hotels, the leading luxury hotel chain in India, and through the ranks he rose to become their executive chef. During this career, spanning nearly 18 years-mostly as the Indian chef in top five-star hotels, he got the chance to work with a few master chefs of Kashmiri, Avadhi and South Indian cuisines. He was the main Indian chef of Taj Palace Hotel, New Delhi – a five-star property known for its restaurants. In 2000, he became executive chef at hotels in Nashik (Maharashtra), and then at Goa and Gwalior (Madhya Pradesh), where he mastered himself in these regional cuisines. He then accepted a new challenge as the executive chef at Hotel Yak & Yeti in Kathmandu, Nepal.

Chef Nilesh Singhvi possesses a can-do attitude, and very good relations with the staff and management as he is a hands-on chef, who is business oriented with excellent leadership, staff training and kitchen management skills. Additionally, he is very open minded, flexible and always looking for new ideas. He embraces his profession and strives to ensure that each dish is fresh, aromatic, and balanced.

His love for cooking began in India, so he pursued formal culinary training at the Institute of Hotel Management in India, a school similar in prestige to the Culinary Institute of America (CIA). The training included classic French, Italian, Indian and Chinese methods, plus full instruction in restaurant management and wines.

During his career, Nilesh has cooked for dignitaries such as Mr. A.B.Vajpayee, Ex Prime Minister of India; Mr. Jacques Chirac, Former President of France; Mrs. Margaret Thatcher, Former Prime Minister of U.K.; Mr. George Bush Sr., Former President of USA, Mr. Bill Gates and many others. He also participated in the Indian Food Festival at Le Touessrok, Mauritius & World Economic Forum, Davos.

Nilesh is presently at the Bombay Club in Washington, DC preparing the fine dining regional Indian cuisine as executive chef. Bombay Club opened its doors to offer fine, authentic Indian cuisine to Washingtonians in 1988 and the restaurant maintains it focus for excellence under the leadership of restaurateur Mr.Ashok Bajaj.
