Head Chef and Owner
Andrew Wong is head chef and owner of A Wong, the restaurant at the forefront of refining Chinese cuisine.
In his youth, Andrew helped in the kitchen of his parents’ Chinese restaurant but had no interest in pursuing a culinary career. Instead, Andrew studied at Oxford and then London School of Economics, until he returned to the family business after his father’s death. He soon realised his passion for cooking and began training at Westminster culinary school.
After his training, Andrew travelled to China to attend the Sichuan’s culinary institute and worked in kitchens across China’s different regions learning different Chinese cooking techniques and recipes. He returned in 2012 to reopen his family’s restaurant as A Wong. Since then, the restaurant has earned 3 AA Rosettes and praise from Pierre Koffmann and Albert Adria.
