He overlooked the entire culinary operation and was also a part of the pre-opening team at Park Hyatt Vienna in 2014.

He enriched the entire food and beverage operation with an extensive renovation plan to launch Wild Honey St. James with Anthony Demetre. Hameed held the position of Executive Chef at Radisson Blu Portman Square, London. He also displayed his expertise at Conrad Chelsea Harbour, Guoman Tower in London, and at ITC Sonar Bangla in Kolkata where he began his career.

He has done several projects in the UK, assisted in opening several restaurants and cloud kitchens, including his brand of flavoured cultured Ghee called “Ghee it up”. Hameed proudly conducted Indian cuisine master classes at “The Kitchen”, Parsons Green, London, for Michelin star chef Thierry Laborde and a winner of the Lord Mayor’s Dragon Awards organized by The City of London. Hameed has worked closely with British Beekeepers Association in the past to install beehives within London city hotels to help increase the declining population of urban bees.
