The Philosophy

Chef Mika's Cuisine believes in the following:

Amazing Flavour: Chef Mika prepares fresh and seasonal dishes with special cooking techniques that suit a Shadow Restaurant, they are brought to you in a glass container to ensure optimal freshness.

High Hospitality Service: We take time during our delivery to talk to our customers as we are eager to share more about the dish, where the ingredients come from, provide advice on what to drink with the dish and much more.  Food is our passion!

Sustainability: We source our produce from the best suppliers coming from the only planet we have and believe no food should go to waste and packaging should be kept to a minimum.  Hence our Black Days event and our glass container policy.
