Chef Maryam was very good. She was personable and the food was amazing.

Chef Cihan did a wonderful job of proposing an initial menu, working with me to accommodate our dietary restrictions (including a pescetarian, a mushroom allergy, a "no steak" requirement and 8 yr old daughter) and then delivered on an amazing meal! He was prompt, fully prepared, engaging (but not intrusive) and thoughtful. The courses were as described, delicious and well prepared! When everything was done, he did a wonderful job cleaning up.
Thank you, Chef Cihan! We will be inviting him back again!

It was a last minute idea for a special occasion. I found TakeAChef easy to use and had 4 responses immediately. Chef Kahya turned our tiny galley kitchen into a 5star restaurant! His dishes were exploding with flavour and textures. Everything worked out and recommend Chef Kahya and TakeAChef to anyone looking for a unique experience.

Chef Mike was a pleasure to work with. In terms of preparation, he modified the menu to suit the needs of the guests. The lobster bisque and crab cakes were exceptional. We would definitely recommend him for future events. Superb job!
