All The Chinese You Need To Know

About Larkin Cen

Larkin Cen was a finalist in the 2013 series of MasterChef. After practicing as an HR Solicitor for 4 years, he decided to follow in the family’s footsteps and embark on his lifelong dream of being an entrepreneur. Having grown up in his parent’s Chinese takeaway, he noted that the Chinese food sector was too fragmented, the businesses lacked scalability and most importantly the food was outdated and generally unhealthy.

After his time of MasterChef, Larkin has established himself at the 5 star Celtic Manor Resort in Wales with restaurant Cen at Celtic Manor offering a deliciously different dining concept featuring an menu of fresh and contemporary Asian Cuisine. In October 2016 Larkin opened his new casual Asian diner called Woky Ko. They serve bao's, noodles and small plates all freshly cooked to order from a menu which reflects the freshness of Asian food. The casual and fun restaurant offers an open-kitchen dining room where guests can watch our "Wokstars" cook Asian street food to order.



Larkin Cen will be looking for use of authentic flavours and cooking methods.
