Chef – Alexander Illeš
Leading expert on Japanese cuisine
Welcome to APANI®, a unique restaurant where you can be part of a genuine culinary experience, prepared with joy and creativity by me and my team. I hope its inspirational atmosphere combined with various flavors and aromas will create an unforgettable experience that will keep you coming back for more.
I have worked hard to improve under the supervision of the best chefs and sushi experts in Prague or Bratislava. Most of my inspiration comes from Japan. During my visits, I explored local specialties and the culture of Japanese cuisine. I learned about the Japanese philosophy of life and how it influences their everyday eating habits.
