About the role

From our Copenhagen beginnings, our intention was always to be one of a kind. We ensure our guests enter our restaurant with a big IRASHAIMASSE (welcome to our restaurant) and leave us with the best feeling possible.

Sushi & yakitori is about technique, tradition and precision. To work with us, your hands, head and heart must be in complete harmony. We love Head Chefs who can thrive in a kitchen full of pride, pace and energy. Managing a long standing kitchen team for deliveries and events, whilst maintaining the standards of our restaurants. The right attitude is a must, experience is not always the most important thing. The ideal Head Chef candidate will:

  • Be fluent in English
  • Have already been working as a Head Chef in a busy environment
  • Have an eye for detail; always upholding the highest standards and ensuring every shift is in the very safest pair of hands.
  • Be a great leader who really cares about people. Your nurturing approach will make coaching and developing other members of the team a natural focus.
  • Have a ‘Ja Tak’ attitude (Ja Tak is a Danish phrase meaning "Yes, Thank you")
  • Have a genuine commitment to making people happy - guest and team alike – to ensure you have one of the happiest teams in the business and guests that turn into regulars and regulars into friends.
  • Want to be part of a company that can help you flourish and become the best you can be.
