Meet Our Chef & Head of Culinary Operations 

Kiran Ghate

Inspiration for the Lola Rouge menu is rooted in the upbringing of Kiran Ghate, award winning Chef and Head of Culinary Operations for Naumi in New Zealand. 

Born and raised in India, Kiran began his career in food for some of the most prestigious banqueting experiences in Mumbai before moving to Wellington, a city that is a melting pot of Asian communities.
