Chef Ivan put together a fantastic menu for me and was open for suggestions and changes at any time. He communicated clearly and promptly at all times, including on the day to update me on arrival times. When Ivan arrived, he came across as extremely polite, respectful and professional. Ivan did not need much involvement or explanations from me, and got straight on with preparing the food (although he obviously put a lot of effort into preparing things prior to his arrival too) - this was fantastic as it allowed us to just relax and enjoy our evening. When the food came out, it was absolutely beautifully presented and tasted incredible. It was a menu consisting of many dishes, but the pace Ivan brought them out was perfect, and each dish was absolutely amazing. It's hard to choose our favorites: we absolutely loved the beef tataki with mango and pea shoot salad, the tuna tataki with cucumber & radish salad, the shrimp tempura and the spicy garlic-soy broccoli with sesame, but all the others were also great! Ivan made sure we were ready for dessert before preparing and serving it - this was also both delicious and beautifully presented. Throughout, Ivan had the perfect balance of being both very attentive but also respecting our privacy, and did not rush us at any point. The kitchen was left spotless after and Ivan even made sure we had some leftover dessert! The entire experience was memorably fantastic, it was a pleasure dealing with Ivan, it was good value for money and I would not hesitate to recommend Chef Ivan to anyone!
