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.

Chef Kimo (Loren Holly) exceeded all of my expectations! Chef's timing was perfect; guests raved about the food and the combination of flavors and texture. The food was served hot and some of my guests were pleased to be able to watch Chef Kimo in action! The dinner for 50 was at my home in Kaneohe. Service was for 6:30 pm. Chef Kimo worked with me on the menu and at exactly 6:30, dinner was served. Food service was buffet style and Chef Kimo made sure that the food kept coming! Chef Kimo cooked and cleaned and at the end of the evening, the kitchen was immaculate. After the party ended and as guests prepared to leave, Chef Kimo and the crew broke down the tables and chairs and before leaving for the evening, made sure that everything was cleaned and taken away. Everyone raved about the food and the service! As the host, I was most grateful for the privilege of working with Chef Kimo. Using Kimo's Akamai Catering for this special event was the best decision I made!

We would recommend Hanai Events for any event you could image. We planned this surprise party for our sister from Texas 3wks before we where to be in O'ahu. They found th venue,(Hyatt Centric Hotel) got the food we loved catered,suprised us with a BREAK DANCING CREW, had a screen for the slide show my hubby made, had the most AWESOME DJ(played 80's music and kept everyone on their feet) and the 3 different flavored CHEESECAKES... out of this world Fab!!!! I could continue on about our night and all the memories that Hanai Events created for the Birthday Girl, her childhood friends, colleges, kids,family and staff enjoyed themselves. If you are looking for the best event and memories of a lifetime definitely have HANAI EVENTS as your planners. Jeremy and Ethan much mahalos for all you guys did before our event and after. Love loves the Kitkouski's

Jason was incredible and I was blessed to have him for our wedding party of twelve. My mother had taken over the catering aspect of our Oahu wedding because she saw how stressed out I was, and if you do talk to Jason, he can confirm how high strung I was when we met. I perfunctorily nodded and looked at the menu, my mom handed over the money, and I barely talked to him because I was upset at our ceremony site, which looked nothing like it did in the pictures (our home base is in NYC so we didn't get to see the property until 3 days before the wedding) and I was too busy with sprucing it up to get to know Jason personally. The purpose of this preface is to say that this is obviously NOT a review of Jason as a person because upon talking to him, you'll be taken by his sense of humor, character, and charm. If the apocalypse comes you'll want him on your team, not just to cook of course but because he's so funny and has a magnanimous soul (my dad got locked out of his room and Jason stopped what he was doing in the kitchen and went to help!). This is a review obviously, of his professionalism and his INCREDIBLE food. It's unfortunate that I can't post pictures but let me just say this. People typically oversell how good they are and in Jason's case, my objective opinion is that he doesn't do enough. Exhibit A: I offered to post reviews for him in every forum possible because he really deserves the greatest public approbation but he still hasn't called or write (c'mon Jason you need to pub yourself more!). Anyways, I'll stop gushing and be helpful to those who are looking for a chef for their private event. Here are a few background notes to me so you can get a sense of where I come from and why I believe Jason deserves the highest praise. Here is a list of the courses we had that I'm recalling from memory, so the names are descriptive and less poetic than I'd like: 1) Steak Bruschetta, 2) Crabcakes, 3) Asparagas and Mushroom Salad, 4) Mahi Mahi, 5) Steak, and 6) Lobster. Pretty simple right? Jason's crabcakes were the best I've ever had. They were meaty (I couldn't tell where the breading was), flavorful, and unlike most crabcakes that are heavily battered and salted, NEEDED Jason's amazing sauce because it was barely salted. As I've said, we're based in NYC and there's no need to be snooty about food but what I mean is we've tried the best in the culinary world. I grew up in Taiwan and I've had Michelin starred restaurants in NYC, Hong Kong, and Tokyo. Most of the times I find food in most of these restaurants well plated but overhyped in taste. I'm not going to essentialize Jason because this is obviously just one meal I've had from him, but it was a 6 course meal and there were too many opportunities to be inconsistent. Jason's trademarks (again, from my one time impression): 1) light on salt (I didn't request this, I think this is just a hallmark of great cooking), 2) using the freshest ingredients, and 3) making everything from scratch (for reals, I saw him making crabcakes in the kitchen). I hope this review would be helpful to those of you who are looking for someone to cook for your event, if you or your guests are more Paula Deen than Morimoto and like thickly battered fried and refried items or go nuts with the salt shaker then Jason will be a disappointment.

I cannot emphasize enough how wonderful Tropical Moon Events was at our wedding. All of the cocktails were such huge hits that they were all everyone wanted to drink--even those who usually only drank wine or beer! Most notably, the Passion Mai Tais and Lychee Mint Spritzers were everyone's favorite. I thought that the Cucumber Basil Gin & Tonic was very refreshing. The bartenders were so wonderful and fun, and kept up a great pace for all of the thirsty guests. The party would not have been the same without Tropical Moon Events there to liven it up!

Chef Pedro planned, shopped, and cooked an excellent meal for our family while we were vacationing in Oahu. The food was fantastic and the family was involved in the meal prep. The kids loved him and he was fun and personable. We definitely recommend him and had a great time with wonderful food. thank you!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to hire a caterer?

Catering prices depend mainly on how fancy you want the food and service to be and how many guests you’ll have. When you’re first looking to hire a caterer for your event, consider how many guests you’ll have and your total food and drink budget. The national average for event catering is $340, but catering prices can range into the thousands depending on your menu, guest count, and service.

Event catering is a broad term that covers everything from fully prepared, ready-to-eat food that the hosts plate and serve themselves to full-service, multicourse meals, including rental of linens, glassware and other items, with service staff organized by the catering company. Usually a caterer will determine cost based on the type of event you’re having, how many guests will attend, the level of service you desire, and what type of menu you’d like to have. For example, if you have a set catering budget, say $1,500, and you plan to have 50 people attend, that means you have $30 per person for food. If you have the same budget with 100 people, you have $15 per person for food. In this way, the number of people you want to attend your event and the level of food you want to serve them determines how much catering will cost.

How much should catering cost per person?

Catering prices can range from about $10 per guest on the low end to $150 or more per person on the high end. Catering costs represent the quality of food, presentation, variety, ingredients and service. But catering prices are more than the cost to cook the food that will be at your party; they also include the cost for the company to do business. Here is a simple breakdown of catering prices:

  • Menu: The food you serve your guests will directly affect the price per person. Organic ingredients, complex recipes, elaborate presentations, or high-ticket items like lobster or filet mignon all add to the cost.
  • Service: Buffet, family style, plated dinners — how you serve the food affects the cost per person. For example, a true plated meal can cost about twice the price of a staff-assisted buffet because of staffing costs. Hiring waiters, bartenders and cleanup crew will all be calculated into the per-person catering price.
  • Drinks: Providing beverages and alcoholic drinks for guests greatly increases your catering budget. Hosting an open bar can cost as much per person as the meal.
  • Rentals: Seating, plates, glassware, etc., will all have an effect on the cost per person for catering. For example, a plastic conference table that seats 10 costs about $6 to rent on average, while a wooden farmhouse table is about $80 to rent on average.
  • Business costs: Any catering cost will also include the cost for the company to do business such as insurance, employee wages, commercial kitchen space and more.
