About the Chef

Chef Steven Lee’s father had migrated to India in the 1940s from Guangdong province of China. Lee was born in Kolkata and grew up in Tangra, the Chinatown of East Kolkata that once housed tanneries and now been converted to restaurants. Lee had introduced this ‘Tangra’ type Indo-Chinese cuisine at a Wimbledon based restaurant named ‘Dalchini’ around 21 years back.

Keeping the multi-cultural diversity of UK in mind, Lee had introduced Indo-Chinese dishes like Hakka Chicken, Crispy Okra Pepper Salt, Tai Pai Paneer, Soya Chilli Fish and lot more.

Lee had also worked as a Chef at ‘Spice N Ice’ at Croydon and later ‘Bombay Wok’ at Hounslow. In 2016 he went for his maiden business venture ‘Hakkaland’ at Harrow. After a five-year stint as a co-owner of Hakkaland, Lee has now started his latest business venture Hakka Garden in Harrow. Lee has been invited to showcase his Indo-Chinese delicacies in various popular UK cookery shows on Zee TV and Colors TV.
