Vikramjit Roy began his career as an Oriental chef, cooking Chinese food at Delhi’s Park Royal hotel and modern Japanese at Wasabi at the Taj Mahal Hotel Delhi. He was poached by ITC hotels which put him in charge of the Pan Asian in Chennai and created Tian for him in Delhi. Both restaurants were successful but Roy left for a series of ill-advised ventures. His peripatetic phase ended when he opened Hello Panda as an oriental delivery service in Delhi.
Since then he has built on the success of Hello Panda by exploring the food of his native Kolkata and opening the acclaimed Tangra Project restaurant in Delhi.
