When Karin and Asi Gabay first met in a Tel Aviv beach café in 1992, they could never have predicted how their relationship would pan out.
Asi Gabay, 36, who now runs the Chopstix noodle bar in Golders Green, moved to London aged three.
The couple married in 1993 in Holon and settled in North London. Asi began working for his father at his Hendon restaurant, Sami’s.
But disillusioned with life in a new country, and without a job, Karin returned to Israel in 1994, just weeks before the birth of her first child.
