About The Show


‘Le Petit Chef in The Footsteps of Marco Polo’ is a two and a half hour dining show that tells the story of how the world’s smallest chef follows the route of Marco Polo. The show’s 6 course menu takes guest along a culinary journey across the regions visited by the legendary traveller. The unparalleled 3D show is complimented by a unique gastronomic experience full of fun and surprises. Diners engage in a 5-senses spectacle as they savour the tastes of the story along its sights, sounds and aromas. The 3D mapping concept uses animated optical illusion techniques which project our little chef cooking on your plate and table top.

Dietary Requirements


Le Petit Chef’s menu is never revealed – it accommodates vegetarians and pescatarians with or without seafood options.
  • The menu contains no pork, no beef and/or alcohol and is Halaal (from a Halaal Butcher with certification) / Kosher friendly, but not wrapped certified – unfortunately, due to the nature of the show and the props used this is impossible to achieve.
  • The only nuts will be in the Spice bags accompanying the Arabian course and dessert presentation – all of which we can arrange to have removed.
  • The portions for each act of the show are plated up in specific props that allow for a guest to pick and choose.
  • We will be able to accommodate a vegan, as well as gluten and/or lactose free diet.
  • If you do not wish to eat a specific aspect of the meal it can be left aside without it spoiling your dining experience in any way.
  • We serve 6/7 courses. Come hungry, the food is plentiful and there will be NO need to get a takeaway on the way home.
All dietary requirements are dealt with when you check-in on the day of the show.
