The perfect outcome

Hosting an event with some Spanish guest speakers, we wanted to have en experience that captured a little of the Spanish spirit. Having looked on the Paella Company's website, I figured that if they delivered something that looked half as good as their advertising, then it would be a winner! As it turned out, our Paella was even better than the pics I saw online. The chef arrived perfectly on time, was efficient, and thoughtful with his set up, and our whole venue smelled amazing as he prepared the meal. He was ready to serve at exactly the time that had been arranged and was super friendly toward all of our guests. Best of all, absolutely everybody had their fill (with enough for a number of people to go back for seconds!). delivered on every measurable I could think of. The food was delightful, the service impeccable, and the theater that comes with cooking in a giant pan was mesmerising. I would book this company again in a heartbeat!”

Our daughter’s 30th birthday party was such a success thanks to the Paella Catering Company and their chef, Mario who did a wonderful cooking the delicious Paellas! From start to finish the lunch was so well organised and carefree for us. We had two different Paellas - one large Premium Paella and a smaller Vegetarian.

Thank you so much for coming and catering our family Christmas party on Sunday. It made it so much easier for everyone to just be family rather than having to buzz around and get things ready. The paella was spectacular and the theatre of the preparation was so much fun. We all loved chatting with Mario and being a big foodie family, it was great to have some new recommendations for foods and recipes to try. You guys are awesome and we’ll be calling again! ”

Fantastic Job

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Mario for doing a fantastic job last night. We were in the middle of speeches when he left, so I didn’t say a proper thank you to him. The food was superb and everyone loved it! We have enough leftovers for a couple more meals, which makes me very happy! ”
- Deb and Family

Delicious Paella cooked and served with a smile!

From the very first time I contacted Marianna to discuss my party I felt confident that her company would deliver a delicious paella for my guests. I was not disappointed. Ari and Nadia came on time as promised and set up the cooking area without any input from me. As guests arrived they were welcomed by the fabulous aromas coming from the huge paella dishes that were being prepared with additional spices and other ingredients. The result was 2 amazing paellas - a seafood paella abundant with fresh salmon, prawns, calamari, mussels and other seafood combined with delicious rice and additional flavours - the second paella, a traditional Valencia was filled with chunks of tender chicken breast and chorizo combined with red peppers, beans, peas and asparagus together with the seasoned rice - both were absolutely delicious and one thing that really stood out for me was the generosity of the serves! Compared to another paella company I've experienced, this was so much more generous and everyone felt well fed with their appetites totally satisfied. Ari and Nadia put all the leftover paella in containers and we've been enjoying further paella meals of the delicious leftovers. Many of my guests asked for business cards for their future entertaining and everyone made positive comments about the food they ate at the party. My 60th birthday celebration was made extra special thanks to The Paella Catering - thank you all !,,”

Fantastic addition to our party

We chose The Paella to cater for our engagement party in May 2015.

We'd considered a number of catering options, and I'm so glad we decided to go with The Paella!

Appropriately priced, exceptional food (we had wonderful feedback from a number of guests, many of whom eat Spanish food often), and best of all, they really added to the atmosphere of the event. They also didn't take up a lot of room, which was very convenient for us as we had 65 guests at our home. The service was very professional and I was so impressed.

Thank you to Aridani and team! You guys did an incredible job! I'd recommend The Paella to all. ”

Please thank everyone. The food was very delicious, the chef and wait staff were delightful and the guitarist was fabulous. All together they made my birthday celebration very enjoyable and I have received many complimentary comments from our guest about the food and music.”
- Lee Mangraviti

Thank you very much

Thanks very much to Aridani for such a smooth running and delicious meal. It's such a relief to be able to leave the preparation and service to someone else. He served 150 portions of paella within half an hour and the flavours were delicious. To me it was obvious that much preparation had been done in preparing delicious stock and securing quality of ingredients. I look forward to the next time we do business.
