Rodney is excellent! A fantastic chef, excellent personality, a very special evening for me and my girlfriend. The sushi he served was delectable, and the rice pudding was amazing. I would absolutely recommend this choice to anyone asking

We absolutely loved Chef Rodney! He was an absolute delight. We booked the private sushi bar for my husband’s birthday and the food was great - the mango rice pudding was a hit with our group. Honestly, we just loved our evening with the Chef! Looking forward to reserving another event.
