How to Hire a Private Chef in Sydney

At Your Table Sydney offers a unique and personal concierge service that will comprehensively guide you through all your decisions as you plan the perfect event with simplicity.

Decide on the type of event you wish to host, a dinner, a party, a picnic, a weekend away, a surprise, an informal or formal occasion where that will be.

Choose the type of cuisine, maybe modern Australian,  Mediterranean, Classic French, Asian, or fusion.

Deciding on one of our private chefs is the first step in creating your perfect experience. You now know what type of event and food style you require so pick the chef who sounds perfect.

Look at the sample menus to see which suits you the best, but they are not set in stone and we can fine tune them according to your requirements. 

Think about the number of courses or the varieties of food you would like.

Then call us so that we can talk together to finalise everything, we are the professionals and won’t let anything slip by so you can rest assured that nothing will be forgotten.

How Much Does a Private Chef Cost?

At Your Table brings incredible value to the luxury of your very own private chef, coming in at similar or often lower than restaurant prices with the benefit of a private and customised experience.

Our chefs have menus starting at $89 per head but that will vary according to the number of guests and courses you require, the more courses you decide upon will increase the price but  the more guests you invite spreads the fee of the chef and can be very cost effective.

There are no hidden extras, all food, preparation,  cooking, presentation, service, clearing and washing up are part of our inclusive package.

Sydney Suburbs covered by our chefs

Our private chefs can travel pretty much anywhere in Sydney, from the Northern Suburbs and North Shore down to the Southern Suburbs, and across from the Eastern Suburbs and Inner East to the Western Suburbs and the Inner West. If you live within the Metro Area, within a 25k radius of the CBD, then this is all included in our pricing.

If you live further afield, no worries, because our chefs will travel up to 50k from the city centre with just a surcharge for fuel, tolls and travelling time for the chef and waiter.

So wherever you live in Sydney, we’ve got you covered, our private chefs are on hand to visit you and bring the fine dining experience of the city right into your home.

Caleb Song
Caleb provided delicious and aesthetically presented meals, with clear explanations. Highly recommend!

Greg (NSW)

Caleb Song
The whole event was well managed and co-ordinated. From Initial contact with Sonja, to Ellie in accounts and Caleb the Chef. My Perfect Party created a beautiful setting and provided wait staff that were efficient, relaxed and friendly. The food was superb and Caleb showed his passion and love for the food he cooked by his descriptions of each course. The whole event went without a hitch and was a relaxed and happy night - enjoyed by all who attended.

Hemant's Recent Reviews

Hemant Dadlani
Chef Hemant was wonderful. Really easy going, talkative and a pleasure to have in our kitchen. His food was nice but not out of the world.

Manish Patel (NSW)

Hemant Dadlani
We booked through At Your Table for my husbands 40th birthday for 18 guests. We had an amazing night with Chef Hemant - the food was sensational, my husband is still talking about the roasted pumpkin that he cooked. The whole evening was extremely well planned from the pre-organising with the admin staff, the food, the wait staff and right up to the very end of the night where our kitchen was left spotless. We didn't have to do anything which made the night extremely enjoyable. Would definitely book again in the future and highly recommend to anyone looking for that 'something special' when celebrating a loved one's milestone in the comfort of your own home.

Jane Morgan (NSW)

Hemant Dadlani
Our chef Hemant was unbelievable, the food he cooked was excellent. We were all very impressed with our chef and our waiter. We have all talked about, when we are going to do it again.

Chef – Bing Liu

Sydney Chef – Modern Asian

Bing Liu

Is ‘Le Cordon Bleu’ in Paris your scene, coupled with the food culture of New York? Chef Bing has developed his personal style of cooking from his experience in both of these. The vibrancy of New York underpinned by the classic French cookery school is a perfect combination. In addition, he is a professionally trained Sushi Chef and could bring his experience in Sake, Sydney to your table.

Could Chef Bing wow you with something along these lines?

  • Roasted snapper, parsnip purée, fennel creme fraiche
  • Crispy pork belly, celery root, with apple mustard chutney
  • Rhubarb Vacherin, white chocolate mousse, marmalade
  • Citrus tart, yuzu cream, mandarin sorbet

William was outstanding. The food was delicious! He was lots of fun and made it such a special occasion. I can recommend more highly. Will definitely get him again

Edwina Ekins (NSW)

William Poveromo
Chef William was impressive from the start. He easily accommodated our request to remove the dessert and add side dishes. Chef William then suggested two fantastic canape additions to round off a tremendous menu. The execution of the menu was first class. The wagyu steak was a melt-in-your-mouth kind of delight. Can't recommend him highly enough.

Jonathan Cawte (NSW)

William Poveromo
Chef William’s food was one culinary delight after another and so beautifully presented. Chef William and waitress Kat were so relaxed and personable. It was a pleasure to have them both at our special occasion. It was the cherry on top to have the kitchen spotless again before they left. What a treat.

Charlotte Jameson (NSW)

William Poveromo
William created a delicious meal for us which was beautifully presented, allowing me to enjoy the evening with our guests. Having William and Ana, our waitress, to cook everything and clean up as well was just a godsend.


William Poveromo
We had a fantastic night! Many thanks to the talented Chef William & attentive waitress Ana. William’s Japanese dishes were beautifully presented & the flavours were wonderful. We highly recommend.

Christian Colognesi
Our dinner on Friday night was just wonderful with our chef, Christian, and our waiter, Juliana. Christian is just full of personality and introduced each magnificent course - the Wagyu beef was particularly beautiful and Juliana was delightful and took initiative to go above and beyond with service. Thank you to Christian for replacing Mark at short notice. Thank you Ellie and Sonja At Your Table

Margaret Coulton (NSW)

Simona Marini
Simona was simply outstanding for my 50th. Amazing food produced even with dodgy catering equipment at the Estate we had hired. Nothing was an issue and she made us 25 pizza balls for the pizza oven for the next day. A highly highly recommended Italian cook and a genuinely lovely human.

Christian Watts (NSW)

Thomas Damm
Food & service amazing, will definitely be using Thomas’s service again, would highly recommend, enabled me to enjoy my guests company without being stuck in the kitchen and even better all the clean up was taken care of

Amanda Doulgeridis (VIC)

Francois Morabito
Chef provided excellent food and service. All enjoyed the meals and atmosphere created by the team.

Allan Reid (WA)

Bryce Reynolds
the food was innovative and tasty and served with flair by Bryce. We have 2 suggestions. The main course (duck)could have been a little hotter and we would have liked more jus. The dessert (cheesecake) was delicious and would have liked a little crunch with it. We would recommend this experience to others and tell them to use Bryce, he is tops.

It was a seamless enjoyable experience and all my guests enjoyed the food


Geoff Hart
Words can not express how lovely the meals were on the night. They were fresh and tasty and something that you would expect to have at a high level restaurant. Thankyou for an amazing experience to celebrate some pretty special birthdays. It will be a night that we will be talking about for a long time to come. i would thoroughly recommend Geoff from AtYourTable and would definitely speaking to AtYourTable again when another milestone birthday comes along to book in Geoff again. Thanks again it was an absolute delight!

Kamel Kant
We had a fabulous night, I was a little nervous about how good the food could be given prepared signficantly before it got to our house, the chef's only needing to be there less than 2 hours prior to service, and we had a 3 course sit down dinner for 30, BUT I had no need for concern, it was just perfect, food was delicious, Chef's and the single waitress we had were wonderful, so friendly, engaging but in the background, Even our most foodies of friends were raving. Was a special night for my 50th so just soooo lovely to not be in the kitchen where I would normally be (which I love). Couldn't pick a fault, oh, and everything was washed, cleaned, packed away, a massive thank you. Our friends were blown away, loved the idea, very impressed. A very happy Big Birthday girl!

Dani O'Hare (VIC)

Geoff Hart
Geoff did a great job serving up hors deouvres that kept our guests very happy. Lots of complements on the food and service.. he left without a crum in his wake.
