It wasn't that long ago that we had Theresa and Jerry cooked for a group of close friends. The first encounter was so impressive that we got them back in no time. The creativity in adapting the menu to accomodate some of our repeat guests were simply amazing. With the exception of our special request for the best in Hong Kong chilli crab, every other item on the menu was different from our last dinner party. Not different for the sake of being different... It was different in a yummilicious way. Where do I start? The chicken rendang was super delicious. The authenticity of the spices definitely take me back to malaysia. All guests have tried rendang and unanimously voted this to be the best they have tasted. The fish as crispy even when it has sauce over it. Once again, top notch cooking skill. Sambal prawn was cooked to perfection. And to conclude the dinner with agar agar was the perfect ending for a Malaysian like me. Theresa was very generous in throwing in her home made pandan chiffon cake. Such thoughtfulness once again made the dinner an unforgettable experience for our guests. Joke aside, we are already planning for our third booking with Theresa and Jerry.

We had a great Mother’s Day dinner with Theresa. Tasty food and all nicely presented! We were all impressed with the extra thoughts Theresa put into the dinner. With all the dishes and the pandan cake to finish the night, it literally brought us to Singapore/ Malaysia when we were physically at home! Loved the experience!

It was an amazing dinner through and through. Every dish from Chef Theresa and Jerry was tastefully presented and tasted delicious. Right from her first dish (Devils egg) to her last dish (gula Melaka sago pudding), we were thoroughly impressed by the flavors, texture and presentation. Her chilli crab dish was the best that I have tasted in Hong Kong and I can safely say taste better than many of those served in reknown restaurants back in Singapore. Chef Theresa and Jerry were friendly and polite. It was truly a great experience and we are already looking into booking her for our next dinner. Can't recommend her enough.

Chef Theresa and her assistant were amazing! They were professional, friendly, courteous and very clean in food preparation as well as reinstating our kitchen. What was also much appreciated was their being so helpful when they saw that my maid needed assistance serving our guests.
Food was superb! We requested for mild hot food, and they came out perfectly. All ingredients, especially seafood were noticeably super fresh and of high quality.
Friends were totally impressed! All of us had a wonderful, fun, relaxing dinner with a tasty menu. We will most certainly recommend Chef Theresa to our friends.

最近呢年幾由於疫情問題, 所以好少外出食飯, 所以就安排廚師上門.
小朋友滿一歲, 邀請朋友幾家人到屋企作客, 所以特意找了東南亞菜式. 經了解後, 原來Theresa 系馬來西亞人, 她好nice,friendly,對材料好有要求, 菜式有唔同風味, 真系色香味俱全.
由於還有小朋友,所以特別交代要分開唔辣,和辣. Theresa亦都做的好細心, 儘量滿足要求.
值得一提, 白胡椒炒蟹, 中意胡椒味,就一定要試. 仲有, 泰式香辣豬肉碎生菜包和冬陰公湯 (好飲到停不了口). 最後, Theresa 好有心,準備左小禮物比小朋友. 多謝Theresa 用心服務.

1. Chef Theresa is nice, 2. The assistant is nice too. 3. They work together seamlessly. 4. Food portion is big, its good for 8 guests ( we ordered 6). 5. Ingredients are fresh, and of high quality espcially the Crabs. 6. They are so nice they have cleaned most of the kitchen wares. 7. Dishes are served in good sequence but its too fast ( the whole table is full of different dishes) 8. The waiting staff Gary is very proactive, good engagement with the guests

Truly amazing experience with Chef Theresa. Each dish is well thought of, well presented and of restaurant quality. Authentic Singaporean/Malaysian taste with a local adaptation (tip: chef could add extra kick to the chili if you ask in advance). Chef is very personable and easy going. Highly recommended for ASEAN cuisine lovers.

We would like to thank you Chef Theresa and her assistant Jeffrey for delivering a superb dinner experience for me and my guests last night. The food was so delicious that it was truly beyond my expectations. We had a great time last night and really appreciate the chef's effort and services. My Malaysian friends also reckon the food was authentic and tasty. Definitely recommend anyone who enjoys this yummy food. (even for mild spicy food lovers)

First time to use Mobichef private chef service, I have to say the services were excellent. Chef Theresa is very friendly and her foods taste superb. Especially the Chili Crab, cannot stop eating the chili sauce with the tasty fried bun, prefect match. I personally liked the Chicken Sambal, I ate three bowl of rice with this dish. Finally, the dessert Sago Pudding was so great, I can still remember the taste of it. Overall, excellent services and foods.

Theresa is a friendly, generous and professional chef. She cooked our dinner on Christmas day and offered us two appetizers with compliments. The portion was really generous even without the two complimentary dishes. The flavours were impeccable and we enjoyed all the dishes. The highlight had to be the Tom Yum soup, Singapore Chili Crab served with Mantou and Stir Fried Prawn Sambal which were too good to be found in general restaurants. Thank you so much Theresa for the fabulous meal.

It was a very nice meal, extremely well prepared and presented. The flavouring was spot on and extremely authentic. Chef Theresa and her husband were extremely efficient and professional and our guests and we had a great time! I definitely look forward to having Chef Theresa cook for us on another occasion. Her chilli crab and mantou and the spicy minced pork in lettuce wraps were amazing!

Teresa and Jerry came approx 3 hours before dinner time, and worked tirelessly to prepare our birthday dinner for a girlfriend. Teresa was very kind to give us complimentary starters (devil's eggs and chicken wings) which were so delicious, and when my friends came, they were so impressed by the sumptuous dishes that came in quick succession after one another. The menu we chose was Taste of Malaysia, and for 4 women, it was the perfect choice in terms of both tastes and portion. We ordered for 6 as our children can also enjoy the food, and Teresa was thoughtful to separate the dinner into two servings - one for the adult only birthday dinner, and the other for my kids. They worked quietly in the kitchen, very professional, and there was no fuss. We loved the dessert which was a fruit jello cake, and it complimented the dinner so well. This is the first time we have Mobichef and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We highly recommend Teresa and Jerry as your next mobichef experience!

We are so lucky to have Theresa help us host an intimate birthday dinner party for us. She brought all the ingredients and even some of the serving ware. The food was delicious and authentic SE Asian. We particularly loved the Tom yum soup, chilli crab, steamed fish and dessert! She was extremely kind and we also enjoyed having her husband around as her assistant. The dishes were the perfect amount of spice and the ingredients were freshly purchased that day - the seafood was even purchased from Sai Kung. They are such a lovely couple and we would highly recommend them. We look forward to having them help us host another dinner very soon. Highly recommend to anyone who enjoys authentic SE Asian food!

The food was very tasty, beautifully presented and beyond our expectations. We had one vegetarian guest and Theresa was kind enough to especially prepare an entire menu for the guest, and it was equally delicious. We especially enjoyed the chilli crab, and the clams with lemon grass sauce. Great dining experience, highly recommended!

Thank you very much for Chef Theresa. We had a great time on Mother’s Day. We especially loved the Chili Crab with Fried Man Tou, the sauce went really well with the Man Tou and the Coconut Rice. The Crab was really fresh as well. My second favorite was the Nyonya Chicken Sambal. The sauce was really tasty with different aromas. The Fried Whole Fish with Tamarind Sauce was really delicious. Fish was crispy and sauce is sweet and sour. Perfect way to end our Malaysian Mother’s Day Dinner!

Theresa and her assistant arrived on time and work. Non-stop cooking in the kitchen for our year end gathering. I had enjoyable time with my guests as there is nothing for me to worry about food.

We all like the fish, especially the sauce with unique taste. The prawn dish is very nice too, the pineapple was a surprise as it is so juicy and sweet. My girlfriends love the butterfly pea jelly that everyone took a selfie with it.

My kitchen was left neat and clean after dinner. Thank you for all the arrangements!

This was the first time we had engaged the services of a private chef for a dinner party. Chef Theresa and her partner were exceptional, she is a very talented chef and her menu was outstanding. The cereal prawn was tender and fresh, the toppings of fried curry leaves was so yummy. The champion went to the white pepper crab, the hot spice was just accurately that made you sweat yet rich enough and ext-creamy enjoyable for every bite. I had never enjoyed such exquisite cuisine in Singapore nor Malaysia. The kitchen was left immaculate and we had no cleaning up to do, I will be using MobiChef and Chef Theresa services again and can highly recommend her to others.

Last night we had chef Theresa over to cook us a Malaysian Home Style dinner. The dinner was amazing and chef Theresa is always so professional and even surprised us with an additional appetiser, Thai Raw Prawns with Hot and Spicy Sauce (my favourite). My guests enjoyed the dinner party, and the experience with Mobichef was always enjoyable and yummy.

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.
