John Kitchens, Hotel Manager of Mandarin Oriental, Kuala Lumpur, stated, “We are extremely excited to have Chef Johnson and his team with us here. We have seen what he can do and the wonders he works with the ingredients that we can provide as one of the top luxury hotels in the KLCC Kuala Lumpur.”Mandarin Grill
