      Mark Kermode Observer (UK) A divine comedy barrelling towards inevitable tragedy, played out in hell's kitchen where someone is bound to get burned. Rated: 4/5 Jan 9, 2022 Full Review Nick De Semlyen Empire Magazine A fast-paced and hectic kitchen thriller that, though it tries to spin a few too many plates, pulls you deep into a fascinating, detailed world most of us know little about.

      Sal D Very tight well execute film with a realistic window into the life of food service and restaurant entrepreneurs. Ensemble cast performances are exceptional and Director paces the script at just the right measure to maximize actors efforts. Definitely worth a watch - maybe even a second. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/26/24 Full Review Thijs F Really nice, never gets boring! Crazy camera work. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/09/24 Full Review BigDeez C This movie is a massive downer. Seems like all lines are improvised, nothing happens, other than watching miserable Restaurant workers as they go thru a dinner service. And how do you do a Chef movie where the food doesn't look appetizing? They're double dipping as they prepare, touching the food too much, all I could think as I watched was that I was happy not to be eating there. Good actor but skip. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 04/11/24 Full Review kay m This movie is so real and intense that I was exhausted, in a good way! After working in the restaurant business for many years in all positions, I could feel every scene. Highly recommend 👍 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/05/24 Full Review Bruce W Loved the intensity of this film. Great performances all round. You believed the tension being felt in the kitchen and the exchanges between the staff felt so real. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/01/24 Full Review Tristan C Wow. What an amazing piece of art.
