Chef Lucky's reviews
Chef Lucky has a natural talent for creating flavourful dishes and very nice presentation. Served the perfect amount of food and even had a little bit of left overs. I highly recommend him, he will not disappoint !

Lucky was great. The meals were thoughtfully planned, professionally presented, and delicious. Lucky paced the serving of each course perfectly, I had the impression he was listening from the other room to gauge how far along we were before entering - we were never rushed and never waited. He left us to chat on our own and was very discreet but also friendly and engaging when it was appropriate. What a great night. Thank you Lucky!

Chef Lucky took care of hosting my parents’ 50th Anniversary Dinner. It was a surprise for them and Chef Lucky made it a memorable experience. The meal was amazing and they could not say enough good things about their interaction with Lucky and the meal presentation and the clean up, which was impeccable. My parents have said that it was something they will never forget because it was such a wonderful experience. Thank you to Chef Lucky for making this so special for them.
