TWICE CAFE Ekaterina Kopanitsa

I would like to share my genuine feedback and express gratitude to Restaurant Secrets’ team for their professionalism, dedication loyalty and commitment.

I am lucky enough, as a new business owner, to have RSI team by my side, to take us through all the challenges in the process of opening a restaurant, but also going the extra mile to make sure that everything is at the highest level starting from the interior design and to the point where the business is up and running successfully.

They are a group of talented, passionate individuals who will always have your back and be completely honest with you no matter what. If I ever have another project, there’s no one else I would rather have by my side than RSI team and their great leader Gabrielle F. Mather! Totally recommend them to anyone who is in F&B, new or experienced, cause you won’t find anyone better than them to take care of you and your business, also , their list of services covers all you’ll ever need to take your project to the next level!

Samakna - 2022 Sabina Saldanha

We chose RSI because of its extensive restaurant industry experience and proven track record of successful projects. Our meeting with Gabrielle reinforced our decision as we witnessed her passion for her work and expertise.

By selecting RSI, we have gained valuable insights into the local restaurant industry in the UAE. This has been helpful in refining our restaurant concept and identifying the optimal location for its establishment.

The team at RSI demonstrates tremendous expertise. We appreciate their efforts in taking the time to truly understand our business, industry, and project objectives. They have leveraged their knowledge and skills to design and implement the best possible solution.

Monkit - 2022

We chose RSI based on the many successful restaurants they helped launch. RSI assisted us with Menu Engineering and Staff Training. Each service provided by them was excellent – the tastings, exploring different ingredients, learning the secrets behind assembling burgers, and all the smallest of details.

RSI has always been swift with their response and understood every task clearly while meeting all project deadlines. We would definitely recommend RSI for being very supportive, insightful, patient, and professional and for helping us through our journey.
