Chef Lucky's reviews

4.8/ 5

Chef Lucky is a passionate restaurant and home cook! Everything was delicious and served on time, warm and well seasoned. It was my first experience with Takeachef, at first, I didn't know what kind and quality of food to expect but every service/dishes was better then I expected. Thanks to Chef Lucky!

My husband and myself received a special gift card from our children which gave us the opportunity to discover and enjoy this exclusive and amazing diner experience hosted by Chef Lucky Silva. This fine dining event was a memorable and Chef Lucky surpassed our expectations, from the time we booked the date to the choice of menu and most of all, the end product. It was such a nice experience, and we couldn't be any more grateful. Thank you again, Chef Lucky Silva! Cheers!
