Food, service, and ambience at this restaurant were simply great. We had outside seating so noise from outside may have been different than inside. The food was great - from appetizers, to main meal, to dessert, and drinks. Every bite was simply delicious and their drink special was very tasty. Service was great. Our server was sweet and accommodating. Very attentive and nice. Even the server giving us the food was funny and personable. Overall, it was a great experience and I look forward to going back.

My first time at Mad Chef Kitchen, an evening out with my Granddaughter. The ambiance was great, not to noisy, so we were able to have conversation. The food was very good, I would definitely recommend this place for the food. If I have any complaint at all it would be the service, was a little less than desirable, but all in all a great place to have a nice evening out.
