After passing his City and Guilds qualification, Bains became part of the team helping to open the first of Raymond Blanc's brasseries, Le Petit Blanc. A spell at L'Escargot in London followed, as well as a stint as head chef back in Nottingham. In 1999 Bains won the Roux Scholarship, which gave him the chance to work at Le Jardin des Sens in the south of France. On his return he secured the position of head chef at the Hotel des Clos in Nottingham, which was renamed in 2002 to Restaurant Sat Bains at Hotel des Clos. In 2003, Restaurant Sat Bains with Rooms was awarded Nottingham’s first ever Michelin star.
