Arora started out as a journalist before discovering her love of the culinary arts, training at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and graduating in 2010 before spending her formative years at Noma in Copenhagen and refining her skills under chef René Redzepi. In 2016 Arora moved to Asia taking up the position of sous chef at Gaggan's eponymous restaurant in Bangkok, before opening her own place, Gaa just a year later, in the same street where Gaggan is located.
Last year, Garima was named the Best Female Chef title ahead of Asia's 50 Best Restaurants Awards ceremony. Accepting the prize, Arora said: “This award is a validation of our team’s hard work and commitment to excellence. I am honoured that chefs and respected industry peers voting on this award recognise and appreciate our efforts.”
