Diana is the brainchild of chef and owner Sammy , who discovered his passion for food after living in Orange past 10 years.
Sammy has since opened four restaurants in the premier food and wine region of central west NSW: Mr Sushi King, Orange (opened 2012); Mr Sushi King, Mudgee (2014); Mr Lim Korean/Asian fusion restaurant, Orange (2016) and Avido Ristorante, Orange (2019).
Sammy believe that his dish should reflect his life time experiences. Running 4 restaurants in Orange and Mudgee was wonderful journey in his life and still it is however he realised that he needs to go Sydney for further his journey. When the perfect location became available in Potts Point .He grabbed without hesitation and ready to take a risk towards the next challenge.
Diana is name after Sammy's friend Diana Shaw who let him open eyes for food and wine culture in Australia. Some of people might be thinking it is not a suitable name for asian restaurant but he believes it is wonderful, meaningful name for this restaurant and he wants to remind himself where he came from.
The atmosphere of Diana Potts Point evokes a mixture of old world running headlong into the future. A beautiful mix of Korean and Oriental cultures.
