Chef Kim made my daughter’s 21st birthday celebration absolutely unforgettable! All the dishes he prepared were beyond delicious! He was very professional, very well mannered and accommodating ~and can be funny when the moment calls for it! My son has special needs and was sometimes loud during the dinner service but it did not faze Chef Kim. He left my kitchen sparkling clean and even gave us complimentary margaritas one hour before he served our dinner. Do yourself a favor and hire Chef Kim for your next party. I promise it will be the best party decision you’ll make!
