Holiday Dinner Catering Reviews
Find out why our clients love us!
“In over 6 years of logistics experience as a US naval officer, I have never seen a team make such excellent quality food for that many people. Azam and her team has impressed me and my entire organization with the pleasant service and amazing food quality and I most highly recommend her and her team for your future catering needs.”
“For the past four years, the quality of food services: the variety, the quality, the tastiness, the cleanliness, the friendly outgoing attitude of Azam and her staff and have consistently received positive comments. I personally meet with Azam at the beginning of each camp (and throughout the camp) and find her to be accommodating (diet restrictions-menu). She always remains calm, is soft spoken and easy to deal with. Her staff seems to really appreciate her leadership style as they can often be seen smiling, laughing and delivering a professional service to all of us. I would not hesitate to recommend Island Catering Ltd.”
