Chef Zurath came to prepare earlier than expected time and we loved that his portion was very generous, very suitable for large party. The beer chicken was our favourite dish and the lemon chicken liver was also very special. Chef Zurath is recommended for special holiday dinner.

今次與朋友在家聚會試了Chef Zurath的印度菜, 跟我們平常所認識的印度菜有點不同, 尤其欣賞蒸魚及焗薯仔蛋。如想試一些較特別的菜式, 這會是個好選擇

We had an fun celebration lunch with Chef Zurath, every dish in the menu is delicate, interesting and you can hardly find in Hong Kong. Chef prepares food with heart, he introduced the food and the stories behind, receipes of some dishes are really "old" - they have been used since hundreds or even thousands years ago, which made the day much more memorable and special.
