Amrik Kumar N.Bondad
Head Chef

Temora Hotel

My name is Amrik Kumar N.Bondad, I’m 28 years old and I started out as a chef 8 years ago. After I graduated from Laguna State Polytechnic University with a Bachelor Degree of Science in Hotel and Restaurant Management, I received my first Chef role. I worked in the classic French fine dining restaurant at a well-known hotel/resort in the Philippines called Resorts World Manila. In my first year I joined the most prestigious culinary event in the Philippines called, the Philippine Culinary Cup. I won the silver medal in the young chef division, which, to this day, I’m very proud of.
After my time at Resorts World Manila, I joined the Celebrity Cruise Line for almost 3 years before decided to continue my culinary career in Sydney. While I was in Sydney, I worked at Osso Steak and Grill as a Sous Chef for 2 years before landing the head chef role at the Temora Hotel.
My speciality has a focus on Modern, French, Asian and all Western cuisines.

I look forward to serving you some delicious meals and hosting your next function at the Temora Hotel!
