We’ve studied the origins and the 8000-year-old evolution of India’s culinary culture
to create a Neo-Indian cuisine which can only exist at Haoma.

From east to west, from land to sea,
from the temple to the home, from the palace to the street,
we find inspiration in the past that points the way to our future.

Symbolism, spirituality, story and spice play an integral part in developing each recipe.
With every gesture we pay respect to our ancestors, and with each ingredient used,
we build a better world for future generations.

Deepanker Khosla, affectionately known as “DK”, is as passionate about re-imagining authentic Classic Indian cuisine which he likes to call Neo-Indian, as he is for achieving food sustainability. 

Haoma is his dream-come-true project that began with an online course in Aquaponics and just a year later had bloomed into a full-blown, functioning urban farm in the heart of Bangkok. But it was a year of toiling the earth, coaxing fish to grow in new waters and of experimenting through many trials and errors to optimize flavors – all the while working to create a food system that can truly be called sustainable.

DK`s commitment to the environment is contagious and so is his drive and passion to deliver excellent cuisine at Haoma Bangkok.

Tarun Bhatia, awarded San Pellegrino Young Chef of Asia in 2016 , where he was mentored by the likes of legends such as Chef Andoni Luis Aduris. Tarun is a power house of ideas and keeps his focus on creating sustainably designed and flavored packed dishes as the Chef de Cuisine at Haoma.

Tarun loves art and culture and it can be seen in his style of cooking. A lover of science, he is keen on researching and bringing new techniques to the table to wow the diners day in and day out.

“It is integral for us to work closely with nature and bring the best out of the local produce and ingredients that the land gives to us in a area where we live and cook . We pledge to make a better tomorrow with the way we cook. I hope more chefs would start doing the same”

Vishvas Sidana, is quoted as saying “I always thought wine was something reserved only for the elite upper classes and in order to enjoy it you had to know a lot about it. Wine can be very intimidating and I was pleasantly surprised to learn that it is just the opposite.”

Driven with his love and passion for the juice, Vishwas has committed himself to take Food and beverage service to a level never seen before. He has several decisions to make every day – some right, some tough, but he somehow always chooses the sustainable one.

He is still trying to figure if he loves MotoGP or hospitality more.
