Absolutely gorgeous birthday meal from Kimberley. Food was delicious and service was really professional. Kimberley is really friendly and we will definitely hire her again.

Paula - Jan 7, 2021

5/ 5

An absolutely lovely experience that I would thoroughly recommend. A real treat during these scary times, in fact a fantastic treat at any time, and a wonderful way to celebrate a special occasion.

Marc Preston - Jul 8, 2020

Rob was fantastic. The food was exceptional and the presentation was delightful. We can’t wait to have him back again in the future and try another cuisine. We would highly recommend him.

I would highly recommend Paul. His Italian/Japanese fusion menu was perfect for the occasion and also delicious. Paul took the time to answer our questions and was very interesting to chat to. His skill & attitude made for an excellent evening!

Zander Khan - Oct 5, 2020

5/ 5

I have never previously had a private chef experience but hopefully it won't be the last time. Rob had put in a huge amount of prep. The food was amazing. He also struck the right balance between leaving us to enjoy our dinner party, and being engaging and chatting with us when we wanted to ask him questions (which you will want to do when the food is THIS good).

Chris Bourne - Aug 3, 2020

5/ 5

From the moment Alex walked into the door the experience begun. A smile on his face ended up with a smile on all our faces with the high quality and attention to detail of all the food through the evening. Every dish had our taste buds going to a place like never before. Alex as a person is friendly and professional and as the night went on we all enjoyed getting to know him more. The cocktails were nicely done and even the one member who does not normally drink them were asking for more. I will certainly be recommending him to friends and family. Its an experience not to be missed. I cannot recommend Alex highly enough.

Chef Darius provided a seamless dining experience from start to finish. He was even able to provide extra cutlery/dishes if they were required. The food was presented exceptionally and tasted even better! My guests and I were extremely impressed by the service and menu offered by Chef Darius - our personal favourite was the fillet of steak, which was cooked to everyone’s requirements. Highly recommend him to anyone looking for a stress-free and exceptional dining experience in the comfort of their home. As an added bonus to the evening the kitchen was left spotless! Thanks again Chef!
