About Chef GJ Singh

About Chef GJ Singh

Chef GJ SinghChef Gurinderjit Singh

When it comes to the heart and soul of IndiMex, there is one man to thank for it all… chef, restaurateur and king of curries himself, Gurinderjit Singh, or ‘GJ’ to his friends and that’s pretty much everybody! While talented and creative are words often used to describe GJ, it is his passion for cooking and dedication towards his craft that keeps him pushing the envelope in the culinary world.

During 1989 GJ was awarded his chef license from Hattori Eiyo Senmon Gakko in Japan – one of the oldest and most reputable culinary colleges in Japan. Since then, GJ has received many accolades, including having worked as a chef for one of the best restaurants in Japan and having his recipes published in fashion and lifestyle magazines – just to name a few.

But GJ is not one to brag. In fact, quite the opposite… taking it all in his stride GJ is genuine and humble, a completely down to earth bloke. You soon realise that, for him, it’s not about his achievements, but instead it’s about a pure love for his craft. Often saying that he feels blessed to have the opportunity to spend every day elbow-deep in the kitchen and doing what he loves so much.

After spending many years in the kitchen, you have to wonder from where he manages to pull the inspiration for his next dish. GJ insists it all boils down to his love of food. He feels he is most at home when cooking up a storm. As for what keeps him going…

“I love seeing the smiles on peoples’ faces after they’ve just eaten one of my meals. That alone is the best reward in the world,” explains GJ. “I’m just driven by the endless opportunities that cooking brings to the table. They say true creativity is only limited by one’s imagination. Well my imagination is wild and the ideas can’t be put to rest. Whenever I think my creative juices have dried up I go to sleep and another idea (for a recipe or menu) pops into my head. I think it will be like this until the day I die. It’s just the way I function. My brain never sleeps.”

GJ is a trained Mexican chef, yet, being of Indian heritage, Indian cooking comes naturally too. With a lifetime of experience spanning both cuisines plus his burning desire to always push expectations and test culinary boundaries, one day he thought, “Why not mix the two together and create an Indian-Mexican café?” It was something which had never been done in Australia before. Until now.

He didn’t want to create just any old Indian-Mexican eatery! His vision was simple! He wanted to take people on a journey by creating food and an experience that was unlike any other they’d ever had before. Thus, IndiMex was born!

IndiMex Ingredients

The IndiMex Ingredients

The IndiMex Mool Mantra is simple:
“Always produce the best quality of food”


The Secret IngredientThe Secret Ingredient (Ssh, don’t tell!)

Want to know the secret ingredient used in all the dishes here at IndiMex? Love! That’s right. All mushy, warm and fuzzy, nervous butterflies… love! Chef GJ pours so much love and passion into his cooking that he won’t settle for second best. Ever! There are no compromises when it comes to his food and he insists on only using the best ingredients. Here are just some of the top notch ingredients we embrace:


To ensure the chicken melts in your mouth, we marinate it overnight in our secret smoky tandoori marinade (and no, that is one secret ingredient we won’t be sharing), then roast it in our tandoori oven to absolute perfection. (Used in our Butter Chicken, Mango Chicken and Chicken Korma.)


Want to know why our guacamole tastes so good? We prepare a batch of 20 of the tastiest avocados with the freshest cilantro, tomato, crushed garlic, chopped onions and jalapeno paste to ensure our guacamole is 100% perfect every time it leaves the kitchen.

Makhani BaseMakhani Base

How do you make the best makhani sauce in town? Here’s how… you use the finest tomato paste, thickened cream, butter, fresh ginger and garlic paste with sweet paprika and dry fenugreek, all simmered to the right consistency and taste and… ta-da! (It sounds amazing because it is amazing.)

Saag BaseSaag Base

Our famous saag base is a fabulous combination of spinach cooked in ghee with nothing but the freshest herbs and spices. It is truly saagtastic!


When it comes to all of our lamb dishes only the choicest leg will do! But it doesn’t stop there; Chef GJ then takes it upon himself to dice each and every cut – just another example of his passion and commitment towards delivering the highest quality food.


Nothing but the best at IndiMex! (Of course!) To ensure we consistently maintain our reputation for quality, we use only tenderloin goat fillets to produce delicious curries that are full of lip-smacking goodness.

SteakSteak (for Fajita)

It’s all about choices, and when it comes to choosing our steak at IndiMex we always make the right one. How, you ask? Easy! We simply take 30-day grain-fed Black Angus beef and then make the choicest cuts of sirloin steak. We simply can’t go wrong.


Here at IndiMex we use premium grade flour and corn tortillas to produce authentic flavours that simply don’t compare.

Home Ground SpicesHome Ground Spices

The term ‘daily grind’ takes on a completely new meaning at IndiMex, thanks to Chef GJ who grinds his own spices every week. As always, GJ takes pride in carefully selecting and using various blends and spices including cumin, coriander, turmeric, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, star anise, fennel, black pepper, cayenne pepper, paprika – which are amongst the most commonly used.
