Chef is the story of Roshan Kalra (Saif Ali Khan), a celebrated Michelin star Chef at an Indian restaurant called Galli, in New York. In his desperate attempt to continuously please his customers and live up to his fame, Roshan loses his mojo and with that, both his personal and professional life fall apart. 

The film opens when circumstances lead Roshan to India, to meet his 11-year-old son, Armaan (Svar Kamble) and wife, Radha Menon (Padmapriya). Things take a dramatic turn when Roshan is forced to rethink his life, consequently leading to him launching a food truck by the name of ‘Raasta Café’. Taking to the road, Roshan goes back to his roots to reignite his passion for the kitchen and his zest for life, family and love.

 Chef encapsulates a journey of exploration of Indian cities, a variety of food and different cultures, as Roshan and Armaan travel across the country in the food truck. As the two relive old memories on their journey from Kochi to Goa and then Delhi, they create many new ones, strengthening their bond. In a second coming-of-age, Roshan grows to realize that re-prioritizing the things that are important in his life is the key to finding happiness again.
