I couldn't be happier with Kuoha Culinary and Chef Ed. The dinner party was a huge success. The menu was incredilble and the food was delicious. This was the first time I used a personnel chef and it was hands down one of the most enjoyable experiences I've ever had. What a great way to celebrate a special event. Thanks chef, for your professionalism, creativity and passion.
We booked Chef Kimo to cater for our wedding in Ka'a'awa, Oahu in July, 2014. During the planning stages he met with us in person and also corresponded by e-mail and FaceTime. His friendly nature put us at ease and we were pleased to work with him because of his extensive knowledge of the island and of organising weddings there. Kimo worked within our budget and did his best to achieve everything we were looking for on our special day. He is not only a caterer but can also organise everything wedding related. He custom made the menu to our specifications, recommended an amazing cake maker and organised table decorations which fitted perfectly with our colour scheme. Although there were a few minor problems due to some of his staff letting him down at the last minute, Kimo was still able to produce a tasty and varied wedding meal for us which all our guests thoroughly enjoyed. We highly recommend him and his company.
Sasha is the bomb! We had an awesome experience using her as a private chef for a one night event. I would gladly use her again!! Thank you Sasha!!!
I cannot say enough great things about Chef Pedro, the food was outstanding, they were so accommodating, very friendly and professional. The coordinator leading up to our event was so helpful and kind and the staff the day of was wonderful, warm and professional. Everyone was raving about the food! We were on a budget, but really good in-season food was important to us and Chef Pedro made that happen for us at a reasonable rate. The day of the event there was a glitch with the tables/chairs, and without missing a beat Chef Pedros stepped in to help resolve that issue without ever worrying us. While one might consider a caterer/Chef to only deal with food, they had their hand in nearly all aspects of the day and worked in perfect harmony with the venue care taker. They just have an ALL STAR staff combine with ALL STAR food. Everything was just wonderful. I would highly recommend them!
Selected him after talking with several other chefs. Very professional, talented and personable. Hired him for our family dinner of 10 ( 6 adults 4 children) Food was outstanding. Quality product, first class prep. Talked about each dish and answered our questions regarding the food. Cleaned up. No mess No fuss. Have no reservation or hesitation in recommending him.
This was my second time experience Jojo's kitchen. I belong to an organization that was in immediate need of a buffet service, with less than 48hrs notice given to Jojo's Kitchen, Jojo was able to set up an Easter Brunch buffet for our club with everything on the buffet to please the varied palates of our members. The buffet consisted over 12 items to chose from, the banana pancakes and kim chee fried rice were my favorite, oh, and so was the fried potatoes and the fiesta omelet, forgot to mention the regular and the sweet sauce kalua pork. an assortment of bagels and muffins and bundt cake added to the already well presented menu choices. Freshly cut pineapples were delicious. Forgot to mention the strawberry goat cheese salad, yummy!! there were many other items on the buffet but these I am mentioning the items I went back for a second time. Oh, BTW, her island macaroni salad is the best.
You can really tell the chefs place a high premium on fresh and unique ingredients. The food is simple and elegant, and the experience was overall very memorable!
Chef Chai is generous, kind, brilliant and the best at everything he does. Not only did he cater our wedding, he personally oversaw every aspect and when our cake lady neglected to bring boxes so our guests could bring the cake home, Chef Chai immediately figured out a way to solve the problem and made sure we could have boxes for our guests. Chef Chai is not only an incredible caterer, but his restaurants are top notch. Whenever we return to Hawai'i we make sure to visit him and every experience is nothing short of magical every time. If you ever get the blessing to meet this man and his team, you'll know the magic he creates within seconds of being in his wonderful company.
I cannot begin to describe our amazing Thanksgiving dinner we had. Not only did Samantha and her husband cook an amazing meal with everything my family and I asked for, they made us feel at home; With special touches like festive place mats, all the food made from scratch and definitely filled with love. She even greeted us with leis, which made us feel very comfortable and filled with aloha. We can’t describe our experience without using the words amazing, yummy, and of course grateful. My family and I HIGHLY recommend this fabulous couple to cook for your next gathering.
As a recently single professional, I needed a great cook who delivered. One easy meeting and she understood what I was looking for - mostly savory and everything delivered in glass tupperware. She's definitely a great cook - the only way I can say it is you can tell she loves what she's doing and you can kind of taste that in the food. It tastes home cooked, prices are right in line and reasonable and the food is delivered. Just what I ordered. Recommend highly. 5 stars. MF - Kailua

Normally you get "Chefs" that need certain ingredients. I try and teach to cook with what you have available. Beats running to the store every five minutes just to get something you forgot. I like to teach basic skills that teenagers or single people or parents can learn. I also like to teach in depth too.
