Chef Navjot’s romance with South East Asian Cusine was rekindled when he travelled this past year to Thailand , Singapore and Malaysia. Spending weeks, immersed in authentic Asian gastronomy invigorated and excited him and he wanted to share his intriguing culinary experiences with people back home.
Having seen the people of Irvington enjoy a bold and vibrant Indian Cuisine for the past 8 years, he felt confident that they would be an eager participant in his dream to introduce the intricate flavours of South-East Asian cuisine in this dynamic Westchester community. Thus, Sambal was conceived.
From womb to the world, this dream was realised with the help of Sushil Malhotra, Chef Arora’s partner, mentor and guide. The feather in our cap is our collaboration with Chef Lucky Thai. She is an award winning maestro of Asian cooking, previously based in Las Vegas, who is at the helm of our kitchen along with Chef Navjot. Their combined expertise will ensure that we stay true to our roots as an Asian dining experience while continuing to create and innovate.
