Uwe Opocensky brings with him over 33 years of experience as a chef and in managing some of the very best kitchen brigades around the world.  He is responsible for the culinary offerings and daily operations of the Island Shangri-La, Hong Kong’s 7 outstanding restaurants.

Prior to accepting his current role, Uwe was the owner and executive chef of his eponymous restaurant, UWE, in tandem with Beef and Liberty restaurants in China and Hong Kong.  He also had a nine-year tenure as the executive chef at Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong between 2007 and 2016.

Uwe started his tenure with the Shangri-La Group in 2004. He was the executive chef of Shangri La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur from 2006 to 2007.  Before that, he held the same position at the exclusive Aberdeen Marina Club in Hong Kong between 2004 and 2006.  During that time, he went on a six-month stage position at the world-famous three-Michelin-starred El Bulli in Spain, where he was one of only eight chefs chosen from 5,000 candidates.  This six-month period at El Bulli was crucial for his career, because this was where he found the ability to unleash his true potential as a chef.
