We like his easy going personality and flexibility.

    "We all loved Sueno's special cuisine. Our preferences were taken seriously and the meals were planned meticulously. The dishes were delicious, healthy and unique. We could not wait to sample a new creation each meal and took a lot of recipes home. There was never any food left over! ~Lori B"
