Restaurant Kitchen Manager
Regional Favorite - Immediate Need
Our restaurant was founded on breaking from the norm. While other restaurants focus on shuttling people in and out their doors, we took the time to specialize in what really matters: the food! Born as a steamed dumpling and noodle restaurant in the 1970's - this company now has branches in Japan, the United States, South Korea, Singapore, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Australia, and Thailand. We've received rave reviews from our customers and National Media outlets alike. Over the past few years we have expanded from our roots as a family run restaurant, famous for our Bao, into a leading Southern California chain with 12 locations on the West Coast. We are continuing to grow and are always looking for Managers and Kitchen Managers who are ready to advance their careers.
Job Description: For us, our cuisine is a matter of pride; we know we can't treat our guest to an incredible experience if we don't possess a talented Culinary Expert running the kitchen.

We will depend on your talent to motivate your team to create extraordinary cuisine, and for you to be as dedicated to excellence as we are.
