Luke Mangan is one of Australia’s leading chefs and restaurateurs and is highly regarded internationally as a shining example of Australia’s culinary culture.

His career started in Melbourne under Herman Schneider, of “Two Faces” fame. After completing his training, Luke persuaded Michel Roux of the 3 Michelin starred “Waterside Inn” in London to give him a chance. He believes that working under these great chefs in the early years were the two most important steps he took to learn his craft.

Luke currently owns and operates glass brasserie, Hilton Sydney; Salt grill, Hilton Surfers Paradise; Salt grill and Salt tapas & bar, Singapore; Salt and the adjoining World Wine Bar, Tokyo; and Salt grill onboard three P&O cruise liners. He is also the consulting chef for Virgin Australia.


Having found his passion for cooking at a young age, Sydney native Mathew Leighton first dipped his fingers in the culinary world at just 18 years of age, and now at 27, has carved a name for himself as a rising star in the Singapore dining scene.

He started his career in the main kitchen at the iconic Hilton Hotel in Sydney before moving through to the highly awarded glass brasserie, by celebrity restaurateur Luke Mangan. Matt then joined Mangan’s The Palace in South Melbourne where he served as Sous Chef.

Mathew then returned to familiar territory at glass brasserie after the closure of The Palace as Senior Chef De Partie in early 2012.

Firmly believing that a meal should be an occasion, he always pays attention to the littlest details that may make a difference to the dining experience. A perfectionist with a keen eye, Mathew is able to exemplify that even at such a young age and so early in his career. He constantly strives for excellence and never settles for second best. A great leader and mentor, Mathew readily provides guidance to his peers.

In late 2012, Mathew joined Salt tapas & bar by Luke Mangan in Singapore as Head Chef. Since February 2014, as the Head Chef of Salt grill & Sky bar, he brings his experience and dining philosophy to lead the culinary team. With such a long career still ahead of him, Mathew looks forward to taking Salt grill & Sky bar to a new level of success.


Salt Grill and Sky Bar

Salt, Sydney was Luke’s first restaurant which opened in 1999. In ancient Greece, salt was a rare, expensive commodity and it was given to people as a sign of hospitality and friendship.

These traits are the core ingredients for Luke’s service philosophy and so the success of Salt began. The name was used again for Salt, Tokyo in 2007. Salt grill is an extension on that and first appeared on P&O’s Pacific Jewel in 2009. Salt grill has since been opened in Hilton Surfers Paradise and opening soon would be our new outlet in Jakarta.

Modern Australia Concept

Mod Oz is a relatively recent term that denotes the culinary style of a country searching for its own food identity. Brought about by a large multicultural society, chefs embraced different cuisines which in turn inspired a fusion of new ingredients and traditional techniques with the best produce available. Food is fresh, high quality and the cuisine emphasises simple preparation of unique ingredients. The variety of foods in Australia reflects the land and climate.

The Salt grill menu contains fresh Australian produce combined with the best of local ingredients. You can dine on earthy barramundi fish, salty Coffin Bay oysters, sweet Spencer Gulf prawns, delicate Petuna Ocean Trout from Tasmania. All meat is sourced from farming partners in Australia. Australian hospitality is intrinsic to the food, and your welcome at Salt grill will be as warm as if you were coming to a barbecue in our backyard.
