We are best described as being akin to "a cross between The Huffington Post and Private Eye".

Described as “the most successful restaurant creator and investor in Britain” by Newsweek, Arjun Waney is the Karachi born septuagenarian behind restaurants in Dubai, Istanbul, London, Malibu and New York that number such hotspots as Coya, La Petite Maison and The Arts Club. Waney began his culinary journey after realising “that every time [he] called up Nobu, they were always full and wouldn’t give [him] a reservation”. After one rejection too many, he “told the girl, don’t worry, I will open my own Japanese restaurant” and did just so with the chef Rainer Becker in launching Zuma in Knightsbridge in 2002. He is also known as a generous philanthropist and admits to having spent his youth in the company of the great gamblers John Aspinall, Sir Jimmy Goldsmith and Kerry Packer.
