The St. Regis Mauritius Resort has introduced a series of sushi masterclasses with head chef Van Pham Thong at Atsuko, the resort’s fine dining Japanese restaurant.
A culinary destination on the island of Mauritius, The St. Regis Mauritius Resort delivers culinary brilliance with a commitment to delivering innovative cuisine inspired by contemporary gastronomic trends.
The masterclasses will be based on the authentic specialities from Atsuko’s sushi menu.

He has previously held positions at the 5* Marriott Hotel Doha and the One & Only Royal Mirage in Dubai before being appointed head chef at Atsuko earlier this year.

“It is a privilege to share my passion for Japanese cooking with the guests of The St. Regis Mauritius Resort. St. Regis has always been dedicated to delivering a truly memorable dining experience and this is reflected in the masterclasses which will enable guests to relive their memories of Atsuko at home in their own kitchens."
