Hi Aaron,

I would like to do what I had also meant to do right after the event which was to thank you for the brilliant services provided!!

Your prompt communication, made it really easy to deal with and hence pick you as the caterers.

I really, truly appreciated Aaron being so flexible on the phone if a last minute location had to occur, due to rain, which it did. In the middle of a stressful situation of having to organise this surprise event, your calmness was magic!!

Then on the actual day and time, Nigel walked in to our house in the middle of the pouring day (the only day that it rained like this in February, lucky us), and again, he was so calm and collected, it was contagious!! Thank you Nigel, you made our night!

Paella Pan, pretty much did 60 % of our event, as it was meant to be at the beach ended up being in a small untidy carport, but once Nigel started cooking the Paella, everyone forgot about the rain and were completely enchanted by the smells and watching it been done on site!. Needless to say it was absolutely delicious and what a great idea to do the take away boxes for the special guests!!

So thank you so very much, I feel 100% satisfied with Paella Pan and I am so grateful for the beautiful Paella and for the calming manner in which you, and Nigel handled this very rained out beach party, and helped us have a fantastic evening!!

Definitiavemente, hasta la proxima!

Muchisisimas Gracias!! Daniela Y JP

Hi Aaron

Your food and the special spirit you both brought was really great and our guests have been overwhelming with their positive comments. Thank you both so much for contributing so much to our special day. We have some great photos of you both that we will send. Again our many thanks.

Thank you so much for the INCREDIBLE Paellas, Churros, Sangrias and the amazing, warm incredible service by your staff. Everyone at our wedding said it's the best food by far they've had at a wedding, someone even said best food full stop! I'm also amazed at how you catered to a lot of dietary requirements without compromising on taste. Usually they say the bride never gets to eat their own wedding food and I had plateful of seconds here. Thanks for making our wedding so much more special! A lot of family are already requesting details about you guys.

Hi Aaron

Thank you so so much for coming to cater our wedding. Your food was so delicious and was a real hit with our guests. The fact that you cooked onsite really added to the atmosphere of the party, the smells and visual appeal was awesome. You were super friendly and helpful, we loved having you here and hope you enjoyed your time in our neck of the woods.

Looking forward to our next excuse to have a party so we can have you back again! We had to pay your account in two parts sorry, our online banking was being silly.

Many thanks, 

Chelsea and Oli

Paella was delicious, the Paella Pan crew that cooked and served were awesome, and we had very positive feedback thanks.

It certainly made my life easy! We would definitely use you again, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to others.

Timing ended up being perfect too, and although we had reasonable queues to get to the food, they got through them quickly.
