    Working with Chef Amro was a true pleasure. He was punctual, dedicated and professional. His passion for what he does was crystal clear. He offered us several recipes for us to choose the one that best matches our needs. He was readily available every time we needed him. I’m looking forward for future interactions together!

    Originally we chose another Chef, who received a job offer and had to cancel. However, we now KNOW if we had not gotten Chef Amro, our experience would NOT have been as AMAZING as it was! Chef Amro OVER EXCEEDED our expectations! We hired him for dinner and breakfast! He was the organized, prompt, courteous, and his food was EXTRAORDINARY! I'm so glad I found Chef xchange and chose Chef Amro! I'm even thinking of going back to Dubai in November because I don't think anyone else could be as great!!!

    I booked Chef for a private cooking session for a client of mine. It was a great experience getting to know the chef and a 4-course menu he prepared within such a short span of time was delicious. I would definitely connect with him for future events. You can confidently go ahead with him without any second thoughts.

    Chef Amro provided an amazing service to my guests. When I initially started having communications; he would be extremely professional, prompt and thorough in his responses and Chef Amro continues to operate in this manner. He arrived for the event on-time and took the time to interact with my guests so that he could prepare their meals to their liking. Chef Amro is truly an assert to your database and I look forward to working together again.

    I only recently found out about Chef Xchange and I'm so glad I now know about it! I chose Chef Amro and his Moroccan menu and it was a great choice!!All of his menus look so appetizing but I chose Moroccan because we don't have this type of food often and my husband used to live in Morocco as a child. The aromas which filled our kitchen transported him back to his childhood and I've never seen him so happy with a meal. All of our guests were so pleased! All of the dishes Chef Amro prepared exceeded any expectations I had. Everything was amazing and he even customized our menu to include vegetarian options and meet other dietary restrictions. Chef Amro is truly an artist - he was so friendly and professionally! I highly recommend choosing him for your event. I'm already deciding on a date and menu for my next event when I have visitors in town.

    Chef Amro was wonderful to deal with. He was very easy to get in touch with and he came over before the event to meet with us and to make sure and bring what was missing in out kitchen. He was so pleasant throughout the event and we all loved chatting with him. His pentatonic was great and he made the most perfect turkey. The guests were from USA, UK , Nigeria and from Dubai, and he pleased us all. Thank you chef Amro.

    It was an absolute pleasure to have Chef Amro cook for my friend's 40th birthday party. He was efficient, friendly, warm and highly conscientious. The food was superb and beautifully presented. Chef Amro's warm and vibrant energy added value to the party. We would easily hire him again.

    The event was a cooking class at home for 20 people. Very nice expereince. The evening was fun, well led by Chef Amro and his assistant Sean. The food was very good. The only point to improve would be to leave our kitchen fully clean. But it was an amazing evening, everybody loved it and I recommend Chef Amro.

    Where do I begin!!!! When I say I absolutely enjoyed Chef Amro!!!! He is the best and the food was amazing. Chef Amro was extremely catering, did not get aggravated with me asking 1000 questions about how to make the dishes he was cooking! Most important he made myself and my party feel like we was at home. Although some people in my party arrived let he made sure food was fresh once they arrived. I love Chef Amro and will refer and use him over and over again! Can I take him back to the states with me!!!!

    I am so happy we choose Chef Amro! He is an amazing person and even greater Chef. He came up with very special breakfast menu and we loved his selection. He brought all the best ingredients and freshly picked fruits and vegetables. It was such a pleasure to welcome him to our home and watch him cook for us. Such an amazing experience, I even learned a few tricks from him. Definitely recommend him, if you want to experience very personal culinary gathering.

    I booked Chef Amro for an iftar event for 20 people. He visited my house a day before the event to understand the kitchen layout so that he may be thoroughly prepared. On the day of the event, Chef prepared all the food with exquisite presentation and timeliness. Even though the cuisine was traditional middle eastern dishes, Chef Amro delighted all the guests with his twist on the all the dishes including the tabouleh salad. I was also comfortable with Chef Amro's calm and friendly character which gave him that "king of the kitchen" type of feel. Overall, I am very satisfied with the experience and would definitely book Chef Amro again.
