Michal Balaj

Restaurant Manager

Michal Balaj

My career began as a teenager, working at a local restaurant before making a life-changing move to the UK. After working my way up from waiter to restaurant management, I was given a chance to run the beautiful Lussmanns restaurant in Tring, and now run the Harpenden branch. I take special pride in the camaraderie amongst the entire restaurant staff, as well as Lussmanns’ one-of- a-kind cuisine and beautiful, historic location.

I take pride in well-balanced, awe-inspiring dishes on the Lussmanns menu and the great professional service given by our charming staff.

I started my career with Lussmanns a decade ago, working my way up from kitchen porter to one of the most senior chefs here. I have such passion for what we do, developing wonderful dishes for customers to enjoy, and always leading the way with sustainability and ethically sourced food. I’m very proud to work for Lussmanns and excited for the future challenges ahead.
