Cozymeal guest reviews for other experiences with Chef Rahul

Our experience with Chef Rahul had its ups and downs. To start with our communication throughout the process was rocky as he got some dates confused, moved our initial time, and was going to initially cancel the class. The class did go through though and once he got to our place he cooked us a great 4 course meal. We had lots of fun watching him cook, although we wished he asked us some more questions and got us involved in the dinner. Unfortunately, the end of the night left much to be desired. After finishing cooking, Rahul immediately booked a cab home and did not help at all with clean up after using well over 20 dishes. He also left behind various ingredients of his such as olives, flour, and sugar for us to clean up. Instead of helping us after the dinner was complete, he sat at our dining room table on his phone instead of helping us even slightly with the clean up. It took us over 45 minutes to clean up everything after he left which soured the date/cooking class for us. We would not expect him to clean up everything, but would have appreciated a bit more initiative and service at the end of the night, especially after giving a tip. I've chosen to give three stars as the food and menu was great, but the all around service of the experience left much to be desired at the end of the night.

Rahul was wonderful! He was on time and made the best daahl that either of us have had. We would recommend Rahul to any one looking to learn, or just relax for a night in with a fantastic meal.
