About Chef Surender Mohan; Born in New Delhi, Chef Surender discovered his passion for Indian cuisine at a young age. Growing up in Amritsar, a city known as the culinary capital of India, he was surrounded by a family that loved to cook with creativity. Surender reminisces, “My mother inspired me; she was known in my family circles as a chef par excellence and had always been a great cook. Watching her from close quarters as I grew up inspired me to take up cooking professionally.”
Later, during his extensive travels across the country, he explored its fresh, flavorful ingredients and honed his skills to imbibe a wide array of cooking methods prior to joining The Nair family at The Leela Palaces, Hotels & Resorts. Since Jamavar first opened at The Leela Palace Bengaluru in 2001, the fine dining restaurant helmed by Surender as the Corporate Chef – Indian cuisine received considerable acclaim, including being named among the World’s Top 10 Power Dining Spots by Forbes USA. The Nair family expanded Jamavar to sibling properties in Mumbai, Goa, Udaipur, New Delhi & Chennai with Chef Surender responsible for overseeing the menu development and kitchen teams for each restaurant.
In 2016, The Nair family opened doors to the first international outpost of Jamavar in London under LSL CAPITAL with Surender Mohan being appointed the Culinary Director & Executive Chef of Jamavar London and sister restaurant Bombay Bustle. Complementing the space, inspired by the Viceroy’s house of New Delhi, Jamavar London helmed by Surender showcases pan-Indian flavours using authentic techniques and local, seasonal ingredients. Mohan crafts creative small plates alongside signature Jamavar classics and Nair family favourites, based on recipes passed down from their matriarch: Leela Nair, namesake of The Leela.
With his career in kitchens spanning almost three decades, Surender has accumulated numerous awards over his career including BBC Good Food India’s Culinary Idol of the year and Star Chef for Lufthansa Airlines amongst others.
