First, I want to apologize to the lovely ladies that catered my 40th birthday party. This review is 2 years overdue and for that I am truly sorry! Having said that, the experience with the Exotic Chef was so amazing my friends still talk about it to this day. The ladies set up and cleaned up in a timely fashion, and even coordinated serving different course in accordance with the murder mystery 😁 OMG, the food! I had the opportunity to choose the menu items I wanted and everything was so delicious. I was hoping my guests would leave me some leftovers, but the food was just too good to leave on the plate. I was not disappointed! I will absolutely use Exotic Chef again, and my guests will too. Thank you again for making my 40th so memorable!

Details: Special occasion (birthday, anniversary, etc.) • 11 - 20 guests • Cocktail hour / hors d'oeuvres • Dinner • Dessert • Premium (high end ingredients) • Dessert • Italian • Southern • Asian • Meal prepared onsite • Only once • My home, venue, etc.

First and Foremost Chef Christina was Awesome. Chef Christina treated my wife and I with the utmost respect and displayed a Fun and down to earth vibe that made our experience very delightful and relaxing. Chef Christina has a respect for her craft and she’s very creative. Blending both modern and past experiences to creat Fantastic dishes. Chef Christina also has a wonderful attitude and told us about her background and family, especially her wonderful Grandmother and what she learned from being in her presence while her grandmother would make her famous dishes for the family, these gems she still carries till this day, mixing old with new. Chef Christina also has a very fun side and if you play some music she really lights up and becomes not only a Great Chef but delightful entertainment without even trying 😊 she made the entire evening joyful and relaxing without even trying. She was there to make Delicious dishes, but she left us with a lasting impression of what fine dining, good laughter, and fun times really should be. A++ Chef Christina, thank you so much for being available and ready when I needed you, thanks for making my wife smile, and thanks for filling our tummies with Joy!

I contacted Chef Christina and the Exotic Chef at the last minute! Our kids were sleeping over a friends and we had an impromptu date night. Instead of trying to get a last minute reservation or go to our local spots, Chef Christina customized a delicious meal and had it at my door in NW DC in just hours. An incredible 3 course meal surprise since i told my partner I was ordering food. I highly recommend the Exotic Chef - the only thing I would do differently is plan ahead and maybe cater at the house so we could enjoy it freshly cooked. Thanks Chef!

Working with Chef Christina was a seamless experience from start to finish. She was incredibly responsive, and willing to work with me on my ideas. I asked for a custom menu and she definitely delivered! Beef crostinis, goat cheese, pear and beet salad, duck a’la orange w/fried rice and seasonal vegetables, and a strawberry shortcake for dessert. Absolutely incredible food and truly above and beyond our expectations! As a self proclaimed foodie, I highly recommend Chef Christina!
