Masaya Lounge Adliya

Chef Hemantha has more than 30 years’ experience having started his hotel career in 1984. He studied at the Ceylon Hotel School and won gold medals in several culinary competitions while working in both four- and five-star kitchens.
His skills run across a wide range of cuisines from Thai, Indian, Sri Lankan, Chinese and Japanese to Italian, French and Lebanese.

He says: “When we make the dishes we use correct ingredients, like galangal, kaffir lime leaves, Thai chilies … to give authentic flavours to each dish. Even In Japanese food we use Tobiko, iri goma, seaweed, mirin and wasabi to give the correct taste which is very popular in Masaya-lounge.

“When we make Mediterranean food we use truffle oil, a variety of mushrooms and different kinds of cheese to enrich the dishes and for Indian and Lebanese dishes we use all the traditional spices to achieve the original flavours.”
