Our passion is our food, it’s in our blood.
My grandfather Nick Karras, grew up in the port of Piraeus, Greece and shared his passion for the sea with my mother.
The family immigrated to South Africa in the early 1920’s and settled in Pretoria, where he opened the Star Café on Church Square.
My father had a small coal transporting company, which I joined. As a sideline, I started transporting fish and then opened a fish wholesale business.
In 1992, I established The Codfather, now recognised as one of this country’s most iconic restaurants.
