Born and bred in Germany, chef Thomas always had the urge to move around. Professionally it took him some detours before becoming a chef. After being a mechanic, then studying economics and engineering, Thomas finally found out what his real passion is, food. He has the fortune to hone his craft in Germany’s Michelin starred kitchens. A lot of hard work and 4.5 years later, he needed a break and guess where that led him to? Australia is the answer.

Learning the language was his first task. After a lot of hard work and traveling the country, he fell in love with Melbourne. That was in 2010 and he is still here today. Working in the Melbourne Club, also Stokehouse, spending the longest time in one kitchen with 3.5 years. Running the kitchens in various cafes like Las Chicas showed him a wide variety of Australian foods. But the love of fine dining brought him to private dining.

For Thomas, private dining is the best way to showcase his craft while you enjoy a night with family and friends together! And that is what At Your Table provides for you, a dining experience to remember.

I just wanted to send a big THANK YOU for all your hard work on Saturday night. Given we changed the arrangements on you at the last minute – bringing the dining inside, rather than the preplanned outside – you dealt with all of that with professionalism and aplomb. It helped to make the night run very smoothly. In fact, it was a really lovely night and in no small part because of you, your staff and the dishes you prepared and served for us. I had many compliments regarding the food and attention to detail from you and your staff. They were very impressed, as was I! I couldn’t fault my meal; it was just stunning. As well as those having the main menu, the two people who had the vegetarian dishes said their meals were just superb as well. Thank you too to your staff (Gavin, Paul and Lucy) for all the hard work during the night to make it run so smoothly. I didn’t have a concern about anything all night, which is a testament to the professionalism of you and your staff. Thanks again for making such an important night so special for us.

We selected Thomas for a special dinner with friends based on his great reviews and he exceeded all expectations. We had a 3 course sharing menu and the food was absolutely amazing. At the end of the evening he asked which dish we liked best, I couldn’t decide because I enjoyed them all so much. Not only was the meal outstanding, Thomas was also professional, friendly, attentive but not intrusive, and accommodating (adjusting the menu to cater for our vegetarians). The kitchen was spotless when he left. We highly recommend Thomas.

Thomas Damm is a true professional, masterful chef and great company. His 5 course tasting menu was perfect. We did a chef's table style dinner where Thomas walked us through the different dishes and his inspiration for them. He even left the kitchen cleaner than he found it at the end of the night. Highly recommended.

Thomas was well presented and professional in appearance and manner. He understood our requirements and worked with us to create a meal our guests would enjoy. He explained each dish he was presenting and was available to answer any questions. He also cleaned up after himself and nothing seemed too much trouble. He knew when to interact and when to retreat which we appreciated. We had a thoroughly enjoyable night and would highly recommend his services to others.

Thomas and waiting staff Andrea arrived together on time, and quickly familiarised themselves with the kitchen. Food and service were impeccable, and Thomas explained each dish and was happy to chat about them, and his experience. Both of them served as was necessary, and cleaned up as they went along, which left very little to do at the end of the evening. All in all, everyone had a wonderful evening, and for the hosts, a first time not being stuck in the kitchen with guests at dinner!

Thomas was absolutely fantastic! Not only was his food outstanding but his service, his preparation and his cleanliness was spot on. It was really important for us to have an amazing evening entertaining guests and thomas was a lot of fun to have around. Great food, lovely guy and not even a dish to clean up afterwards! My idea of a perfect night!

We were privileged to have Chef Damm cook in our kitchen and I must say, the food was spectacular, his attitude was professional and it clearly showed that he loves his work and profession. It was evident that Chef Damm has a passion for servicing people quality, well balanced and tasty food. My guests were in awe of the dishes we were presented with and I highly recommend you try his Tuna Tartare. Thanks Chef Damm and thanks to our awesome waitress Deanna who was equally professional and also fun to have along.

We chose the new 5 course tasting menu which was superb. We added canapés as starters which were also delicious. Chef Thomas Damm worked his way around our kitchen with no fuss and produced such 5 star quality in taste and presentation I wish we could eat like that every week! Our friends all commented on what a memorable evening it was and such a special dining experience. Chef Thomas was such a lovely person and had a passion for his cooking.
