No dine-in? No problem. These top-notch Hong Kong chefs are more than happy to come to your place and prepare a feast for you to enjoy a next-level at-home dining experience

The ongoing pandemic has forced us to stay indoors and forgo the pleasures of eating out, but that doesn’t mean we can’t indulge in a full dining experience. With the F&B industry now being one of the hardest-hit sectors in Hong Kong, there’s never been a better time to support the local restaurants by ordering takeout and delivery to enjoy gourmet dishes in the comfort of our own homes.

And for discerning food lovers looking to enjoy a restaurant-quality meal at home—whether it’s a feast fit for a romantic date night or intimate dinner with friends—a group of top chefs is also available to book in Hong Kong to bring haute cuisine to your dining room.

Ahead, we’ve curated a list of the best private chef services to book in Hong Kong. Specialising in everything from Thai food to Japanese cuisine and bespoke cocktails, these culinary masters are guaranteed to impress with dishes served at the highest standards.
