Review of That Hungry Chef by Chloe Bernstein

I was in charge of creating a sophisticated hen for a very close friend of mine and I was desperate to find something unusual, intimate and very special. My goodness did That Hungry Chef deliver! I knew that Pratap did themed dinners and asked if he could create a Midsummer Nights Dream one. Pratap then scoured the play for inspiration and created the most magnificent meal based on the scents and flavours mentioned in the text.The food was spectacular, and the setting matched it. Their garden was filled with candles and we all felt that we had been transported out of London, into somewhere truly magical. I simply can't thank Pratap and his wife enough for their imagination, talent, warmth and fun. If you have a chance to experience this for yourself, grab it!

Innovative food and lovely venue - organised my friend's hen do here, Pratap was very accommodating to all our needs and very helpful to making the event our success. The food is also really unique and tasty. His house is a lovely place to have a private party - good size for 13 of us with a lovely garden for outdoor drinks. Would definitely recommend.

We have known Pratap for a while so looked forward to hosting his Supper Club at Coffee, Cake & Kisses. He delivered on each count! Lovely food, appreciated by his guests and generously shared with team. And a lovely person - a great guy, great host and the most efficient and professional chef we have worked with to date.

Fabulous experience! We've done a couple of supper clubs there now - including the outstanding Maharaja Christmas dinner. We had our school mums night out dinner there last night too - which was a great hit. Pratap's repertoire allows for delicious multi-course sit down dinners to buffet-style party food - all in the intimacy of his beautiful home. Highly recommend!

Pratap catered an amazing meal for 30 people for my birthday dinner. We had a Punjabi-style curry which was completely delicious - people still talk about it when I see them.

I can't recommend these guys strongly enough. So friendly and helpful too!

Pratap delivered a beautiful 4 course private dining experience at my house. And what an experience it was! The food was excellent (& so say all of us) and the planning of the event made easy by Pratap. I recommend him highly for a special occasion.

HUGE thanks to you and your wife for such an amazing evening! We could not have wished for a more perfect host, venue, meal, and you even managed to sort the weather for us! We were all bowled over by your beautiful home and garden, warm hospitality and absolutely beautiful meal. We had explored so many options of what to do for our friend's birthday and we are delighted that we found you! The ‘party bags’ were an extra special touch!

So thank you sincerely - we will spread the word and are already trying to find an excuse for our next visit!

We had a brilliant evening with Pratap and Nikhat celebrating my sister before her wedding. The food and presentation were fantastic, and the space we had for dinner was lovely (I'm only sorry it was too cold to spend more time in their pretty garden!). We really enjoyed the evening and I would highly recommend the Hungry Chef to any of my friends, thank you!

My first supper club and definitely not the last! We had such an amazing time. The attention to details and to the diners, the warmth of the chef and his wife and the high level of the food we ate just made it perfect. Looking forward to the next one!

Great hospitality, food and a warming environment.

Good execution in combining Eastern/Indian flavours with Western techniques. The slow cooked sirloin served with oxtail black lentils and masala mashed potatoes was definitely my favourite.

a MARVEL! the food is truly delectable, the home exquisite, and the experience quite unlike any other you will have at any other culinary venue in London. Give them a theme or just show up to supper: Pratap and Nikhat certainly serve you with a memory that will stay with you forever.

Thank you so much for coming all the way up to Luton and catering for the Bell House Partners so splendidly. I have had many words of praise for you today. All enjoyed the food and the unique experience. The history behind the ingredients was especially commented on.

We love what That Hungry Chef does with fragrance and food. His menus are masterful and we have yet to taste anything that is utterly delicious from him! We have so enjoyed holding events with him, he is an absolute pleasure to work with and comes highly recommended.

It's rare to find perfection when you've eaten out as much as I have, I LOVE dining and I've done it all over the world, but THIS is an experience I keep coming back to. Great food, in an extraordinary setting. Highly recommend booking private dining with wine pairing, our minds were blown.

Pratap and NIkhat came to our office and catered for our Christmas lunch (just under 50 people) - a Maharaja Christmas. The whole experience was excellent! The food was amazing and there was absolutely no fuss at all. A great day was had by all.

They also brought along a pot of their chilli relish for everyone which are delicious.

I'd definitely use That Hungry Chef again.

Just Wow!!!
I don't usually buy curry pastes as I love to make my own but after tasting the chicken tikka paste from That Hungry Chef I managed to eat a whole jar in a day and ended up getting another four after that!!!
They are simply delicious and I can't wait to have my Goan spiced pulled pork with a steamy jacket potato.

Thank you Hungry chef!!!!!

I found That Hungry Chef though Grub Club. I have now visited Pratap and Nikhat 3 times and each experience has been excellent. The setting, their home, is beautiful and the table a perfect size for conversation between a large group. The food is always sublime and the special end of meal gift is also a nice way to end a lovely evening.

I hope to visit them many times more and will definitely be remembering them for any private catering events I may have in the future.

Bought a couple of jars of his potted deliciousness at the Sion Foodies Festival - they are amazing! Make a wonderful sandwhich and that's only the first thing I've thought of to do with them! The flavour is incredible. Cannot recommend highly enough and believe me I do not usually buy 'cheating' things like this but .... this is different. Fantastic spice blends.

I highly recommend That Hungry Chef, not only is the food original, creative and utterly delicious but Pratap & Nikhat are incredibly warm, inviting and attentive hosts. They make you feel as though you've known them forever, which is a very special quality. They hosted a Midsummer Nights Dream supper club for my hen party and I cannot thank them enough. They surpassed all my expectations and created an evening I'll never forget. It was magical in every way imaginable.

That Hungry Chef provided the catering for our wedding on Saturday (16 June 2018), as well as overseeing the venue set up and event management on the day. We could not have wished for better - the food was absolutely fantastic, the staff were amazingly helpful and the venue look amazing. We cannot recommend Pratap and Nikhat highly enough!! Thank you so much for making our day so special!
