The Chef

Chef Nikhil Chib is the MD and Executive Chef of Busaba & BusaGo, the chain of highly acclaimed restaurants in Mumbai. Chef Nikhil built his name on a home catering business starting off with a few helpers and a tiny kitchen. Inspired by the glorious flavors of Asia and a family legacy with Burma, he soon became a household name in Mumbai as the go to guy for his famous Burmese Kaukswe and Tibetan Momos. Eventually he launched his first brick and mortar (well more of a fancy shack) venture in Goa just for the season. It was an overnight success giving way to the birth of Mumbai's first stand alone South East Asian joint in 2001 - Busaba. Backed with an Economics & Finance degree from the University of Rochester and a passion for cuisine, Chef Nikhil decided to go back in and train professionally in the kitchen at France's leading culinary institute, Ecole Gregoire Ferrandi in 2005. After which, he embarked on a series of trainings in a few of the most applauded Michelin Star restaurants in Paris including Le Table du Lancaster led by the culinary genius Michel Troisgros. Cut to 2012 - Chib realized the gap in the market for something fast, easy and economical. Hence came along BusaGo. Currently BusaGo has 3 outlets and is expanding. Chef Nikhil has been a food columnist with the Hindustan Times and Indian Express as well as a television food show host, “The Chef and His Better Half” with NDTV Good Times in 2007. He is also an active board member of the Spastics Society of India.
