About our Chef
Chef Faheem Noor graduated from University of Toulouse Jean Jaurès in hospitality management. He continued his education in London at Thames valley University and graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Culinary Arts and Management(hons).
Faheem started working in the kitchen at the tender age of 18 in Harrods London for 2 years, another 2 years at Sushinho in Chelsea and a brief stint at Nobu Park Lane.
Things started to get serious when he then decided to join Maze Gordon Ramsay in Mayfair where he was part of the first brigade that won the 1st Michelin star for the restaurant.
After London, he migrated to Sydney to be closer to home and his first gig was working at one of the best Japanese restaurants in the country, Tetsuya. From there, Chef Noor relocated himself into suburban restaurants around Eastern suburbs from The Sailors Club, Zigolinis Woollahra, Executive Chef at Pelicano Double Bay, Executive Chef at Empire Lounge and Sydney seaplanes (present). it seems like waterfront venues are a thing for Chef Noor.
His passion for food is second to none, he focuses his travels on food and enjoys exploring the local gastronomy. He has developed a flair in creating creative seafood dishes, exploring new techniques while keeping things simple and not overcomplicating the plate.
His ethos is making fine dining food accessible for everyone. His vision at Helm Bar is to produce a gastro-pub style cuisine similar to the UK, highlighting seasonal ingredients, and for it to be an institution by the harbour whilst running Cockle Bay Yacht Club as a young, fun and fast-paced eatery – 2 concepts under 1 roof.
