Papa Theo-man's Healthy Turkish Food

Theo-man A. from Hong Kong


About the kitchen

My cuisine is based on Turkish home cooking with modernised recipes. My food is mostly what I have learned from my mother and from my instructors in school.

Every dish on the menu is to share. We have two kids (3,5 and 5), they will be around until 8-8:30 pm. Guests can bring their own drinks. Bring containers and take all leftovers home!

  1. Bio

    Why the name Papa Theo-man? Because I will only serve you food that is good enough for my two sons to eat!

    I am from Turkey! The land of great food and amazing home dinners! I studied Tourism and Hotel Management and worked in Service Industry for more than 20 years!

    I never worked in a professional kitchen but I managed few restaurants and F&B outlets in Turkey. I worked in Thailand, Dubai, Australia and China as well.

    Cooking is biggest passion and hobby of my life. I have been cooking for myself, friends and my family for many years. I pride myself in making everything by myself and from scratch; even the beef stock and tomato sauce that goes on top of your meatballs is personally made by me.

    Two years ago I started home cook business in China and now I moved to Hong Kong! It's time to invite Hong Kong to my dining table!

    Whatever I cook for you, rest assured that it will taste authentically and have you coming back for more!

It was such a lovely experience. My first time with Plateculture. I wanted to find something a bit special for a farewell dinner with a dear friend. And everyone loved it!! It was cozy and relaxing. The food was so amazingly good and there were so plenty. Our tummy was already so happy with the starters (hummus, home made bread, soup, salad and many others yummy dishes) and then came the main course (chicken and beef). The chicken was probably the best roasted chicken we have ever tasted. Theo was superb nice and accommodating. Highly recommended!

Thanks Theo-man for the authentic dinner! Food was incredibly delicious and came with generous portion. It was really an enjoyable dinner.

This is our 2nd time eating at Papa-Theo’s. Equally delicious and generous portions. We were ready with Tupperware this time.

Great alternative to the usual Saturday night-out dinners with friends. Never quite know what to expect. I was mistaken as a real estate agent bringing my gwailo clients to view an apartment by the local concierge, to being warmly greeted by Theo and his lovely dog, to the never ending flow of home-cooked Turkish food and greeting his kids & wife who came home later in the evening. It was fun! Theo's home was cozy. Food was in abundance - do remember to bring empty containers along with you!!

Lightning does strike twice! This was our second time with Theoman, and if possible — it was even better than the first. Every single dish was delicious; and Theo’s warm hospitality made the evening perfect.

I wanted to organise a dinner as a birthday treat for my brother and his girlfriend - Theo-man was very accommodating and managed to squeeze them in at short notice. Apparently it was yummy and everyone was very friendly. Thanks chef!

We had a wonderful evening with chef Theo -- the food was simply outstanding! And Theo went out of his way to cater to the one vegetarian we had in our group, not to mention pulling out a bottle of great Turkish rose for us to start off the evening. It was also a pleasure chatting with him; it was exactly like being at a friend's home. We'll definitely be back.

This was my first plate culture experience and I liked it very much. We booked the evening before and the chef Mr. Theoman replied and confirmed the booking right away. The roast chicken (Wednesday special) was delicious so were the other dishes. I brought leftovers home and they were still nice when I had them for lunch the next day!! There were two of us plus 3 other diners who made great company, we were happy to meet new people and exchange notes on private dining experiences. Thanks Papa Theoman for opening your home to us!

Reply from  Thank u for coming! Hope to see u again!

We had such a nice evening with such delicious and fresh dishes! I especially loved the 12h marinated chicken and the desert! It was a relaxed atmosphere and Teoman is a very sympathetic and fun host! Ali, his little puppy, is a highlight too :)

Reply from  Ali loved you all too. :)

I'll keep it brief as there are countless good reviews about Theo-man. When we entered his home we were immediately greeted by the friendly Theo then in front of us was the very inviting dining table that fit the 6 of us perfectly well. Fast-forward, his food was made with passion as every dish was presented with care and attention. The taste was fresh as-can-be, clean and, above all, delicious. Bottom line, if you're looking for an authentic Turkish meal made to perfection with a small group of close friends to enjoy with then Theo-man's place will not disappoint.

Reply from  Thank u for coming. :) I hope to cook for you again very soon. :)

We were made to feel very welcome in Theo-man's home and enjoyed a nice home cooked meal and good conversation with friends!

This was my second time at papa Theo's dining. I decided to order the same menu as the first visit because it was so delicious the first time around. And once again the experience was superb. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was friendly and inviting. There was an abundance of food with plenty of leftovers for all of us to take home. And this time, he even had a room full of beautiful handmade Turkish dishes, so we all had fun doing a bit of shopping too. I wouldn't hesitate to go back again and again. A real special experience, with authentic Turkish cooking in Hong Kong. Love it! Thank you chef Theo!

The dinner at Theomans place is really nice and private.
The starters were ready before we arrive so we didnt have to starve while waiting. Beetroot salad was my favorite, while my bfs fav is pan friedFrench bean and carrot. The main course- roast chicken is amazing! The skin was crisp and meat was juicy! We finished the whole plate. That is how good it is.

Our dinner finished on a high note when theoman served us the Turkish dessert. The texture was interesting, and it tastes really good.
