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!

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.

Reply from  Thank you so much! Hope to see you again very soon!

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!

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.

We had a very nice dinner with 7 people at Theo-man. There was plenty of delicious food and Theo-man was a great host.

We are a family of four: 2 adults 2 Kids. Our kids came with us and had so much fun with Théo man's kids.
The food was delicious (from starters to desert : to buy authentic Turkish food!) and was served very nicely by our chef ;)
We highly recommend!!

We really enjoyed the meal at Theoman's place - Everything tasted fresh and high quality - particularly loved the beetroot, beef kabab, rice and Turkish bread!

Thanks for an amazing meal! Theo-man was kind, generous and attentive. His place was clean with great ambiance, and what a treat to be able to meet his family and two beautiful kids as well. Definitely great value for money as I'm still going through the leftovers two days after our dinner (:

Highly recommended , 2 thumbs up as always

This is a great place for a meal if you have young children, because papa Theo has kids chairs, dinning sets, and entertainment. The portions were HUGE and we packed away a couple tupperwares of food with us. My kids absolutely loved his famous chicken; my 3.5 y/o ate two wings and two big drumsticks. I would recommend this place for its value, family-friendliness, and authentic flavours.

Teo is a very kind host and experienced chef. His dishes are typical Turkish family cuisine, like eggplants, roasted chicken, kofte and the desserts, which my Turkish husband likes so much. We enjoyed the chatting with other guests too. It was really a great dinner with lots of laughters. We will definitely go there again and highly recommend to everyone who would like to try Turkish food. 😊😊
