Priyank Sukhija

Chairman, First Fiddle Hospitality

Priyank Sukhija is a prolific restaurateur, industrious to the core and a true innovator! A simple man, he doesn’t sweat of success. An amiable personality, he is zealous towards what he does.

Born in a family of educated lawyers, Priyank has been the captain of his own boat. The only businessman in the family, he opened the fine-dining restaurant Lazeez Affaire at Malcha Marg, with support from his parents at the young age of 19. The success of Lazeez Affaire prompted him to take Delhi’s existing culinary experience and transform it into something no one could foresee.

He never studied restaurant management and the art of creation and running a business comes naturally to him. He is a true dreamer. He believes in following his heart and making a life on his own. His fascination towards design and interiors has led to him investing heavily in the interiors of his restaurants.

For Priyank, his inspiration comes from traveling and he is a meticulous person as we can gauge from his endeavours so far. He loves doing what he does.
