It was a housewarming dinner, Ms. Theresa is honoured to be the first person to use the kitchen of my home. I modified some dishes accommodate my need for the food. Thanks Theresa for all her flexibility and brilliant suggestion, especially for my pregnant wife and my toddler girl aged 2 .

My dinner started at 6.30pm, Theresa and her husband arrived around 4pm. So I enjoyed my time with my guests playing Nintendo switch and passed the kitchen to Theresa. She brought along two live crabs to my home for the curry crab dish, what a surprise!!

Theresa and her husband are very nice and kind, they gave a brief introduction to us when serving every dishes. As we have limited eating utensils at home, they were busy in changing our plates throughout the dinner. We enjoyed the food and the warm services of the Teresa couple.

It was my first private chef experience to celebrate my birthday at home with friends and my 3 1/2 years old daughter. I chose Theresa because I read so many good reviews about her dishes. Indeed, we had a great time! In fact, I would highly recommend anyone who wants to have an intimate celebration at home and not have to worry about what to prepare and have a restaurant quality to enjoy this service. We chose the customised menu and Theresa and the Mobichef team were very patient to modify the menu many times and we enjoyed every dish Theresa prepared for us. My favourite dishes were the chili crabs, coffee spareribs, lemongrass chicken rending, shrimp with curry leaves…many more. I will definitely use this service for my next event at home.

chef theresa and her husband were wonderful: friendly, funny, and professional. They went out of their way to deliver the best. They could not find baby cabbage in the local market so they asked their friend to bring them some from Thailand the morning of the dinner! The food was delicious and the flavours of each dish were distinctive. it was a really enjoyable dinner.

Teresa was not only great at cooking the most authentic SEA food but also a friendly and amiable chef. The dinner was for my boyfriend's bday, Aug 23, which happened to be T10. We had to push back the dinner for two days, but Teresa made herself available by delaying her personal trip to make it work for us.

Her satay was the first hot dish, impressing us with its crispy outer texture and tender chicken meat, along with the smoked flavor at the tip of your tongue. Her black pepper crab was so good that both of us stopped chatting and we kept eating until the last piece and we debated if we shld save the black pepper spice to go with rice the next day. Not to mention her lemongrass chicken, roasted fish and sambal sweet potato leaves and wingbeans, all reminding my bf who grew up in SG of home.



I would like to specially thank Teresa for taking extra trips in order to get my bf's fav bamboo clams, despite all the difficulties post typhoon. This dinner makes bf's bday very special and we both think it's arguably the best meal we have had since we came to Hong Kong in terms of price/quality/experience.



We couldn't wait to invite her over again for bf's SG friend group to taste their long-missing SEA food that they hardly can find anywhere else in Hong Kong.

第一次請廚師到家中,整體感覺很好
Theresa 特別準備了參巴辣椒醬炒翼豆肉崧 ,在香港一般食不到所以感覺新鮮特別。香脆咖喱葉大蝦也是焦點,好後悔無預訂甜品
