Chef Paul Lewis
A native Australian who, despite his youthful age, is fast approaching two decades of kitchen expertise, during which he won both praise and awards working across the Austral-Asian region.
Lewis has an obvious predeliciton for Asian food. In fact, he has yet to encounter an Asian cuisine he doesn’t admire, emulate and try to encapsulate in his personal approach to cooking. Eager to present only the finest food products to diners, in Bali he has taken the innovative step of establishing his own organic garden near Bedugul, keeping his ingredients under personal supervision from seed-state to plate-side.
