Lilian kindly catered for a joint 60th party near Halesworth in Suffolk.  The food was delicious the appetisers served whilst the guests enjoyed a drink, the best wontons that I’ve ever eaten.  The main course based on Singaporean recipe was superbly presented and excellent.  Service was great, attentive but not overly so and Lilian herself introduced each dish to explain the fusion of flavours.  All in a brilliant evening finished with an excellent cake.  Thank you Lilian.

Did you know special birthdays in December sometimes need to be celebrated early, when the sun is still shining and Lilian Hiw comes to you and cooks amazing Asian cuisine with Knock-out Singapore Slings, (she used to work at Raffles Hotel in Singapore and boy, she knows her stuff).  I’ll not overshare and spare everyone the post-dinner boozy karaoke videos, but huge thanks to Jenny Loud for helping to create our unforgettable party magic - we all had a blast.

Lilian prepared a wonderful dinner party for my friends and I in the occasion of my birthday. The food was Singapore Street Food.  The curry was amazing. Everyone is still talking about the delicious flavours.  The lemongrass was so delicious.  Lilian completely put my worries to rest with her incredible personality and charm and skillful cooking.  Wonderful.  Thank you Lilian.

"Thank you so much for all you did, Lilian. A fantastic job organising the bar, canapés and bowl food with such short notice. Everyone said how fabulous the food was and how special you and Claire both made the evening. I'm sure I will be in touch again before too long.

Thank you again!"

“With family over from America we wanted to do something special - and Lilian did just that for us.  Lilian cooked an amazing selection of foods for us with beautiful Singapore Slings alongside.  Lilian even supplied mocktails for the kids; which they got to mix themselves. It was a superb evening allowing the family to build lovely memories”

"I would highly recommend Lilian for your children's party.  She had everyone fully absorbed for the whole two hours. I joined in with the dumplings making  experience and it was very enjoyable.  Her mocktail making, cookery skills and Chinese decorations all  brought a colourful and exciting atmosphere to our house. Everyone ate and took home delicious food. My daughter Bea said it was the best party she had, ever!"

"What a lovely evening when Lilian came to cook for us.  Great fun learning to fill & shape Dim Sum & delicious food throughout.  No messy kitchen left at the end of the evening either!!!  Highly recommend Lilian’s Kitchen."

Mike Cross

"Lilian's cooking evening was a thoroughly enjoyable event. Eight of us learnt various skills on Asian cooking whilst tasting the delicious dishes. If you want to have an alternative dinner party which is fun, informative and a chance to experience authentic Asian cooking, Lilian's cooking party is for you!"

Jenny Smith

"I really enjoyed our Thai Cooking evening with Lilian - she was so knowledgeable and a joy to spend time with, and of course there was the most delicious food to eat! I have already made a couple of the recipes we were shown, and they were amazing even though Lilian wasn't cooking them with me! I can't recommend Lilian enough."
