Great Spice Owner, Khem Aryal, is a highly skilled professional chef with years of experience in the culinary field.

Khem and his family are initially from Nepal, but it was when he moved to New Delhi, at the age of 16, that Khem ignited his passion for food by learning everything he could about cooking. Khem spent five years in Delhi, then three years in Dubai before moving to New Zealand.

In 2012, Khem began running his successful restaurant in Palmerston North called “Indian Summer”. One of the highlights of Khem’s career so far is winning ‘Best Ethnic Restaurant’ in Palmerston north. He then made a move to sunny Tauranga in 2017, and with the help of his wife Ganga Aryal, he took over Great Spice Tandoori Indian Restaurant & Bar for his brother. Khem has been running Great Spice since early 2017.

The Great Spice business was established by Khem’s brother Bishnu Aryal back in 2015. Today, the company has grown to have four branches in the Tauranga Area.
