Chef Teuku Syafrulsyah

Teuku Syafrulsyah is the newly appointed Executive Chef at Park Hyatt Chennai. Born in Jakarta, Indonesia and with a major in Hospitality, Teuku kick-started his career as a Commis at a café. In a few years he started his journey with Hyatt from Grand Hyatt Jakarta. Ever fascinated by the culinary art, he took some time out to hone the nuances of his culinary style which underwent a unique spin with his exposure to other cultures in the years to come. After a brush with Asian cuisine and an almost 4 year long stint with Grand Hyatt Dubai, Teuku stepped foot into Tanzania only to become the Executive Chef at the stunning property of Park Hyatt Zanzibar. Now at Park Hyatt Chennai, Teuku oversees the full-scale culinary aspects of the all-day dining restaurant, The Dining Room and the specialty restaurant, The Flying Elephant, besides the unique banqueting facility at the hotel, The Apartment. 

With over 15 years of experience, Teuku also developed an undaunted flair for the Chinese style of cooking. An amalgamation of wondrous fresh vegetables, soft flavored breads together with some exotic spices and his favorite dash of delicacy makes for a delectable meal Park Hyatt Chennai eagerly awaits.

Constantly striving to make his guests come back for more, Teuku may be rightly referred to as an empiricist, believing that food is a very translucent form of art. With keen personal interests like photography & travelling Teuku balances work and his personal interests equally well, as he does with his food.
