Masterchef Australia 2018 winner Sashi Cheliah has launched his first restaurant in India, Pandan Club, in Chennai’s T. Nagar. 

The Singapore-born and Adelaide-raised Cheliah says he chose Chennai because it is anchored to tradition and the city is always hungry for new flavours. 

Pandan Club has a unique Peranakan Malaysian menu. As the Peranakans are Chinese who adopted Malay culture, there is a strong Malaysian influence in their cooking.
