About Chef De Cuisine Complex Tanveer Kwatra
From Agra to Melbourne to Fiji, the culinary journey for Chef Tanveer Kwatra, Chef de cuisine for the Complex Sheraton and Westin Resort Fiji has been a big learning experience. Born in Agra, tanveer Kwatra has worked with leading five star hotels in India, trained and worked with Michelin star chefs and has had the experience of working for a casino in Melbourne where he got the opportunity to cook for top sporting personalities, big names in Hollywood, world politicians and gamblers.

Tanveer Kwatra joined the Sheraton and Westin Resort Fiji from Crown Casino Melbourne where he was the Chef at Crown’s flagship restaurant, Number 8 Restaurant & Wine Bar. He specialises in modern Australian cuisine which, according to him, is nothing but modern European food - primarily French and Italian delicacies with Asian fusion. “I describe it as quite bold, rustic and a cuisine of diverse cultures. I also enjoy pan Asian cuisine for a simple reason that it has different flavours to play with and helps a chef to showcase fresh produce.”
