The Iberico ribs and the Angus beef ribs were both outstanding! The duck ravioli was extremely tasty. Louis arrived more than 3 hours before to prepare, the plating was creative and meticulous. Excellent experience!

好滿意!
頭盤個smoke salmon & avocado 好夾
擺盤都好有心機(個cherry radish薄片正)。
沙律既個隻 smoke sprat 印象好深刻 可以出個smoke sprat mini sandwich會更吸引!
French onion soup 兩位傳統老人家可能未必識欣賞 ,但我同我個fd都好鍾意。
個Main course係我幾個最鍾意既菜 ,iberico ribs加個愛文芒果醬真係好出色!
另外Pasta 俾到好大啟發我(諗event menu) 好重牛味 用Bolognese 做底岩我口味d 。
個雪糕得我鍾意食 ,佢地成家人都好怕食酸加凍既野。
連埋個禮物同custom menu好細心 ,100分!

We had a great experience! This is the very first time we have a chef coming to cook for us. I was nerious that our kitchen and utensils were not good enough. Our oven was not working for a while, we thought not having an oven would be a show-stopper for a western 6-course menu. But it ended up going very smoothly. Chef Louis was pleasant and flexible. He was well equipped and prepared. Though this is the first time we met, he netvigated in our kitchen, to our dining room; served and introduced his signature dishes.
We booked this because we wanted to celebrate friendship and show our appreciation to our friends who helped us when we needed it the most. It is a memorable dinner, thanks to Chef Louis!
We didn‘t uploaded pictures of two dishes : the first dish we finished it right away and nothing left for picture! the last dish we intentionally not sharing - not to take away the surprise moment :-)

第一次用mobichef請廚師上門,真是意想不到的驚喜,Chef Louis除了講究食物美味之外,還非常顧及美觀,很會從我們的角度著想,因為其中一位朋友因爲不吃紅肉,Louis在設計餐單時將頭盤的虎蝦殻運用在濃湯上,主菜時更特別安排一份Pesto香煎三文魚柳!
今晚我特別喜歡的是西班牙乳豬和像玻璃紙包的海鮮包,用蝦和龍蝦殻煮成的濃湯,還加入了龍蝦、帶子、八爪魚片,非常足料,意粉更是吸飽了濃湯味道,在我們面對一一剪開,香氣四溢!
最後一道甜品也有驚喜,充滿威士忌酒香的Tiramisu,原來Chef Louis選用的是一支得獎的台灣威士忌,是特別在椰子/果仁味道的木桶,朋友們都非常盡興!

We had The Signature menu from Chef Louis for 6 of us. It was a wonderful meal that everyone enjoyed a lot! It is our first Mobichef experience and we love it a lot. It is relaxing and comfortable to be able to enjoy restaurant quality food at home. Food was delicious. Thanks a lot chef Louis.

Chef Louis is exceptional and ultimate professional! He worked carefully with us to provide the exact menu we wanted (there was a pregnant lady and one child in my guest list, and some were vegetarians). The dinner we had was the most delicious vegetarian food I’ve ever had! He arrived early and discussed with me which serving plates to use for the best presentation. The food was healthy and incredibly delicious! His cooking assistant was also super friendly, kind and nice! I strongly recommend chef Louis to everyone who’s looking for a chef for home parties!

We had a wonderful experience with mobichef.com and Chef Louis Chan. The communication beforehand was prompt, smooth and clear. Chef Louis was nice and accommodating when we made our order. We ordered the "Signature" menu for 8 persons and all the guests were very pleased with the quality of the food and the overall experience.

The tomato soup sounded simple and the ingredients looked plain but the simple touch of Chorizo added by Louis greatly enhanced the soup to a different level and made the soup so tasty, impressive and tantalizing. The Iberico ribs was also a nice surprise, the meat was tender and the taste was original, due to the minimal use of seasoning, so that we can taste the authentic flavor of the meat. We also liked the ravioli with confit de canard filling a lot. It was definitely a very unique version created by Louis. And finally the crêpe suzette raised our party to a hilarious climax as we watched the chef igniting the liquor and pouring the flaming mixture over the crêpes, bringing more laughter, hand-clapping and screams to the joyous evening.

Besides the flavor, the presentation was also very enchanting and lovely, definitely the standard of a high-end restaurant, this complimented the cheerful atmosphere of the whole evening. We also asked Louis to pair the champagne for the starter and the red wine for main courses for us. The wines were nice surprises and value for money. They matched the food very well. All in all, we were all very pleased with the food, wine, Chef Louis and his wife. We could leave all the food-related matters to them while we enjoyed our chatting, yelling and screaming in the dining room. We hoped our noise had not disturbed Louis too much in the kitchen. Thank you Louis and we are looking forward to trying your other dishes in future.

A review by another guest of the evening:
這次的菜式非常美味,有高級餐廳的質素,令我回味無窮。我特別喜歡焗黑毛豬肋骨,肉質嫩滑而有彈性,加上帶有濃郁的肉香味,我很快就把整條肋骨食得光光,最後配上廚師選好了的紅酒,口中的油膩感很快就沒有了。我和朋友們異口同聲地讚美廚師的手術。接著主菜法國雲呑也十分有驚喜,雲吞是包著鴨肉,廚師用了好多心機慢煮鴨肉,拆肉後包在自家制的雲呑皮裡。我感覺這款菜式很合華人口味,一口咬下去,裡面濃濃的肉香味令我食指大動,一口氣食下所有雲呑。雖然主菜味道重,但是喝下凖備好的紅酒後,我感覺一切都變得剛剛好。最後甜點也很好味,而且是我們玩得最瘋狂的時間,當廚師把點著火的Rum酒倒在甜薄餅上時,我們不停地影相,尖叫聲連連,玩瘋了!我喜歡這樣的ending。

My friends & I have tried the signature menu & the food are all good. I especially like the foie Gras, the salad (though I m generally not a salad fan) & the crepe suzette! Will definitely invite Louis again if I have another occasion!

We are writing to say "Thank You" to Chef Louis for making such a wonderful, unique and quality dinner for us. The menu is well designed and arranged. We like the smoked goose and the devil eggs, they tasted so good and we never seen in the market. The wine is also very special, the taste is great matching with the food. The bottle shape is so special that when we show to our friends and they said they haven’t seen it too!

We like the pace and the leisure time chatting with Louis and the way he presents course by course. We think it’s a value for money menu and had a wonderful red wine pear dessert. The taste was very memorable and it gave a beautiful ending to the wonderful night.

Nevertheless, Louis is a very neat and professional chef, he kept the kitchen a very neat and tidy condition throughout the whole cooking process, watch his cooking is also an enjoyable moment to us that we didn’t expected!

Thank you once again and for sure we would like to re-order for his service for our other special days with friends and family too!

We had a wonderful lunch party cooked by chef Louis as a birthday treat for my husband. His favourite was the homemade pasta and mine was the beef stew! Then we both agreed that the crepe Suzette was world class!
