Because the best memories are always made around the table.

And 300,000 guests already made theirs!

We enjoyed working with Chef Jonlin. We were impressed with his level of efficiency from the very start when we were looking for the chef till the the actual day. He is friendly, knowledgeable and engaging. His food was tasty & in right portions. I was impressed with his level of patience dealing with a group of 8. Top of the list was the prawns starter & his signature dessert was out of this word. Thank you Chef Jonlin, my birthday was a blast!!!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed being treated to a 5-course meal for our wedding anniversary. Chef Vic made it memorable by sharing each course's background, sourcing, and preparation.
