Reynold was an avid pastry cook from an early age and his appearance on MasterChef in 2015 allowed him to conquer his fears and realise his true potential in the kitchen.

After the show he made a dream become a reality when he opened his own venue with his brothers called KOI Dessert Bar. This adventure has enabled him explore his passion for desserts.

KOI Dessert Bar is nestled on a little laneway in Chippendale. On arrival you will be wowed with an abundance of luxurious desserts and the hustle of chefs in a tight kitchen. Enjoy a coffee and one of the many naughty treats on display downstairs or work your way upstairs to enjoy the friendly table service that awaits.
