Celebrity TV chef Ganesh Raj has announced the closure of his popular West Auckland restaurant The Tasting Shed.
Located just outside of Waimauku, The Tasting Shed was a local fixture for many years.
Raj appeared on TV in the popular series ‘Eat Well for Less.’
In a statement Raj said the effects of the Covid crisis on the business were ‘intolerable’ and that it was unable to pay its taxes, rent and operating expenses. A shareholders resolution placed company into liquidation.
‘Like many others in this industry, the impacts of the last two years on our business have taken an immense toll on the mental health of myself and my family, a key factor in making this difficult decision,’ said Raj in a statement.
