Meet the Chef

Michelin award-winning Chef de Cuisine Bryan Nagao grew up on Oahu, where he trained and completed his culinary degree at the Culinary Arts School at the University of Hawaii’s Kapi’olani Community College. He spent nearly three decades in Asia serving as head chef for restaurant establishments in Hong Kong, Seoul, Taiwan, and Bangkok. His modern Asian-American culinary style enhanced with fresh locally sourced produce and ingredients provide a distinctive taste and style to our signature Manta restaurant and rich tradition of culinary excellence at Mauna Kea.
