Krishna Botica is described as a "hospitality legend" but it wasn't ever a career offered to her as a young woman. Now after more than 30 years in the hospitality business - 21 of those running Auckland eating institution Prego in Ponsonby - she's the brains behind three Asian restaurants in the city. At the recent Lewisham Restaurant Awards she took out the award for Outstanding Restaurateur of the Year. And she's not backward in coming forward with her opinions on tipping, immigration and wages in the hospitality industry.
