Chef William Mahi

William Mahi is a French Chef de Cuisine, from Pays Basques, with over 20 years of experience. He started his culinary career at the age of 14 by cleaning fish and de-shelling crabs. His talent and steadfast hard work saw him earn one of the most renowned apprenticeships in France when he was only 18 years old. From there, he worked with the most illustrious Michelin-starred chefs of that generation: Alain Ducasse, Nicolas Le Bec, Jean-Francois Piege, Stephane Gaborieau, Christian Tetedoie, Jacques Le Divellec, Helene Darroze and Michel del Burgo. 

Chef Mahi then went on to head his own kitchens in Beirut, Shanghai, Luxembourg, Istanbul and Athens – where he himself was the 2 Michelin Star Chef of Spondi Restaurant. While he acquired his technique and training from his masters, Chef Mahi has, after 20 years of experience, come into his own with an inspired take on ‘global cuisine’. In his delicate play of tastes, colours and textures, he retains the purity of the ingredients while bringing the cuisine to a new level of sophistication.

Much like an artist, he notes that each of his creations has to fulfil stringent criteria before he lets it out of his ‘think tank’. It must be surprising. It must look gorgeous. It must be elegant. It must have fine touches. It must taste exquisite – and it must also be comforting and satisfying. Appointed as Chef de Cuisine of the 1515 WEST Chophouse & Bar, William Mahi will incorporate his techniques and creativity to further enhance the steakhouse’s offerings of exquisite and authentic flavours.
