In addition to being a culinary destination, we proudly operate as an education academy, nurturing the talents and skills of aspiring chefs.

Meet Our Chef

With a remarkable and proven track record spanning over two decades in the food and beverage industry, my journey began from humble beginnings and has since soared to impressive heights. Starting as a diligent cleaner, I worked my way up to become a skilled chef, and eventually, a highly successful restaurateur. Along this incredible journey, I’ve had the privilege of managing a diverse array of over seven restaurants and fast-food outlets.

I am also the proud author of the highly acclaimed book “Kitchen Gangster,” available for purchase on Amazon.com, which has further solidified my reputation and influence in the culinary world.

My overarching mission is to harness my extensive experience and personal brand to establish enduring partnerships with prestigious international corporations, both within South Africa and abroad. I am passionately dedicated to creating long-term collaborations that not only enrich my career but also contribute to the global advancement and enrichment of the food and beverage industry.

Experience ZUMA

Our Zuma Restaurant experience is built upon the foundation of communal dining in an environment that nurtures the soul. We artfully blend a spectrum of bold and intense flavors, each thoughtfully paired with meticulously selected alcoholic beverages. This elevates not only the culinary journey but also immerses your palate in a symphony of exquisite taste sensations.
