Sumit came to Australia in 2002 as a young innocent man looking to find new opportunities. Sumit started out in the hospitality by studying Hotel Management in India, then worked as chef at the Hyatt Regency in India. It was at this point that Sumit decided it was time for a change and moved to Australia. The first couple of years in Australia were very challenging, say Sumit, as he worked in various restaurants. After a few years, Sumit decided it was time to start his own Indian restaurant, and opened his ‘Aangan’ restaurant in West Footscray in 2004.
Good food, good life. In 2014, Sumit opened the second Aangan Restaurant in Deer Park, a restaurant which can best be described as unique. Many aspects of Aangan Deer Park come from the purely traditional Indian culture, like the clay dishes that are used, as well as the 18th century pillars and doors from the Holy City of Varanasi in India. But while the cuisine is inspired by India’s culture of food, items on the menu are presented with a modern twist.
