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 at Theo's. Theo is a friendly guy; we enjoyed the introductions to the different dishes. The food was authentic and absolutely delicious. We are looking forward to leftovers and plan to book another dinner at Theo's soon.

We had an Amazing overall dinner experience. We have selected a set of choice however each dish had its own unique flavour rich taste. My favourite was the lentil soup which was so so good and reminded me my hometown.
All the dishes have been prepared with great attention while cooking materials were also imported from Turkey. Each dish was served and we simply couldn't stop eating.
Teoman is one of the most talented cook I have met and so glad to have this amazing dinner experience.
Make sure to try his home made bread and meatballs with extra tasty bulgur dish.

The Appetizers were so mouthwatering that we couldn't keep our fingers off while waiting for the other friend's. Chef Theo is super friendly and with a profound hospitality history, he knows how and when to interact with the guests. We love everything he prepared and are grateful for the sparkling he offered. Anything about Turkish products, ask Chef Theo! Can't wait to try the Turkish breakfast !!

I celebrated my birthday with a few friends at Papa Theo-Man's Turkish Kitchen and had a wonderful time and would highly recommend it others that want a casual but delicious dinner! The communication was very fast and efficient as we booked it with only 2 days prior notice. The building was easy to find and the apartment was spacious and inviting. Papa Theo-Man has a welcoming personality and makes you feel right at home which sets the tone for a great evening. The food was delicious and very fresh and we really enjoyed the explanation that accompanied each dish and the ingredients used. Pace yourself for the main course (ours was a juicy oven-baked chicken and meatballs) as we got full just having the appetisers! He's not kidding when he suggests you bring Tupperware containers as we went home with another meal (or two!). For dessert, we had two traditional Turkish desserts and a cake to celebrate his Plate Culture anniversary.

We highly recommend this to anyone that wants to have a fun night out, over delicious food with great company (friends and chef!).

Papa Theo was indeed a great chef and a good host. Food was 1st class and prepared with love. Highly recommended.

Our group really enjoyed the food and the experience and would try PlateCulture again. We had a wide variety of dishes and all were tasty, and it was nice to try something other than the typical food that all Turkish restaurants serve. We especially enjoyed all of the vegetables and different preparations. There was plenty of food so the value is quite good compared to eating out on HK island. Eight of us were able to sit comfortably at the table and the chef created a very inviting environment.

Outstanding host. Exceeded expectations on quality of food and service, portion and overall experience. Can't wait to be back.

I have been to other Plate Culture dinners and Theo-man's was one of a kind!
He showed passion, knowledge and skills in bringing the most authentic flavors from Turkey to Hong Kong - quite certain that Theo-man and his family's place is THE best place for Turkish cuisine in all of Hong Kong.
Thanks for the great hospitality, our friends and I enjoyed the night very much and the great company of your beautiful family of four :)

Theoman was a warm and gracious host, the food was delicious and plentiful! I particularly appreciate how he described how each dish was prepared. Well done! Would absolutely go back

Gavin C.

The food is delicious and authentic and the atmosphere is relaxed and enjoyable. Highlights are definitely the chicken and the hummus, which is the best in Hong Kong. We will be going again and recommending friends to do the same!
