Do you know who else loves food and wine? Our Head Chef, Vikas Chandra!
Chef Vikas was welcomed into the Crowne Plaza family in 2013, after making the trip from India to Port Douglas in 2009 to continue his foray into fine food.
At Gusti Restaurant & Bar, overlooking the gorgeous foreshore, Chef Vikas takes control of the kitchen and our palates, conjuring up dishes that dance across your taste buds, whilst still being fresh, healthy and innovative. His menu is a Modern Australian affair with Indian touches, and the team always aims to take advantage of locally sourced and supplied ingredients.

We are very pleased to announce that Chef Vikas will be cooking his delicious new dish incorporating locally sourced and supplied ingredients live for audiences at the Perth Food & Wine Expo over the October weekend.

You will be able to see him live at 6.30pm on Friday 9th of October and at 4.00pm on Saturday 10th of October.
