Sheraton Saigon Hotel & Towers is delighted to announce the appointment of Mr. Joachim Textor as the new Executive Chef. With over forty years’ experience in premium culinary, Chef Joachim will bring phenomenal dining experiences for gastronomes right in the center of the city.

Joachim Textor, a German man with positive energy and happy smile, started his first chapters as a cook for world-class hotels in Switzerland such as the Hilton in Basel, the Park Hotel in Vitznau and the Hyatt Hotel in Montreux, before setting out on the greatest adventure of his life – a culinary voyage that has taken him to 91 countries, 792 cities and innumerable five-star kitchens around the globe.

During his journey, Chef Joachim boasted a global career in top gastronomy as an Executive Chef, leaving his footprints at the most prestigious hotel chains including Marriott International, Shangri-La, Hyatt, Hilton, Mandarin, InterContinental and Anantara, opened four hotels, dozens of restaurants, and cooked for famous politicians, Hollywood celebrities, and royalties all over the world. Most remarkably, he took care the G12 Asian Summit Conference in Busan and hosted four distinguished world leaders including George W. Bush, Vladimir Putin, Angela Merkel and Li Peng. During his time as the Executive Chef of the Shangri-La Hotel East Shanghai, he has won two critically acclaimed awards for the property including the “Best Weekly Buffet Restaurant” by Time Out Magazine in 2017, and the “Best Ultimate Sunday Brunch” by Wow Magazine in the same year.
