Octavium’s kitchen is led by group executive chef Roland Schuller, born in Germany and Austrian by nationality. Chef Schuller trained under Chef Antonio Sciullo and Chef George Blanc in Italy and France. He is also Italian maestro chef Umberto Bombana’s lifelong friend. The two share a similar cooking philosophy – to use the finest ingredients with the simplest cooking method to weave culinary magic.

Schuller started his culinary journey at the age of 18 in Italy, and later moved to Hong Kong for the first time in 1993. He has worked in acclaimed Italian restaurants such as Chez Roland, The Drawing Room and Kee Club. In 2010, he received an Italian Cuisine Worldwide Award, for outstanding contribution to the spread and preservation of Italian food to the world.

After a short break in Thailand, Chef Roland Schuller returned to his favourite city Hong Kong to lead the Octavium kitchen as executive chef, with a “Made In Hong Kong” culinary team, bringing a brand new dining experience to Octavium.
