Kai seriously is the BEST to work with!! I picked up a hobby of planning friends wedding so when my favorite cousin got engaged, I offered to plan/host her wedding in my backyard~I searched long and hard for a good catering within budget and Touch of Paradise Catering was a dream come true!! Kai was so easy to work with and his team was super professional. Everyone at the wedding complimented the food!! I wouldn't hesitate to use them again for any party big or small!!!! More...

We booked a holiday party luau themed event for January 2018.  Not only did they arrive on time but they arrived early to set up.  The food was amazing and the service was excellent.  Very pleased!  If we ever need another caterer we will be sure to call Touch of Paradise again! More...

Amazing! I couldn't be happier that I found Kai after all of the other caterers I had to choose from. I had a good feeling about him from the beginning. He is honest and easy to talk to, professional , very accommodating, and always positive. We had him provide the food and staff for our anniversary and were so thrilled with everything. More than we expected. He threw in extra things at no charge. The food was super fresh and delicious. The  Tri Tip especially was moist and tender and the best I've had in a long time.  He also makes an amazing salad. Several of my guests asked for his number for future parties. All of the staff were friendly and upbeat and genuinely made sure we all had a fantastic experience. I highly recommend Kai and his staff. More...

We arranged for catering for a 45 persons wedding, Chef arrived timely to set up and our guests gave rave reviews about the appetizers as well as the main course.Chef made sure the food was fresh and warm (it was a partial outdoor event). The food not only presented well, it also tasted great. Moreover, Chef was so nice. We ran out of small plates and he was kind enough to give us some of his. It was easy to communicate with the company. Would definitely recommend for catered events. The Chef and his help/server did a fantastic job and we did not have to worry about the quality or the timeliness of the food. More...

My husband and I got married on October 7th, 2017 and we used Touch of Paradise Catering as an accompaniment to our In N Out Truck for dinner. Let me tell you, our guests were NOT disappointed!! Earlier in the year, I had reached out to several catering companies to price out side dishes that my guests could enjoy along with their In N Out burger (the cookout trailer only does chips and that's no fun). After receiving several RIDICULOUSLY expensive quotes and feeling discouraged, I reached out to Kai due to the good reviews on Yelp. (and plus, I love supporting small businesses) He responded very quickly and worked with me back and forth to find the perfect pairing for the big day. We decided to do a super cool french fry and onion ring bar! He came up with different sauces to accompany them, as well. He also did my cocktail hour which was very simple cheese and crackers as well as fruit and veggies AND 3 drink dispensers with punch, tea and water. I also hired 2 servers from him to stay and help bus tables and clean up throughout the event. The food was EXCELLENT! I had several of my guests comment on how delicious the fries and onion rings were! Everything was very fresh and hot! Kai arrived early, was ready to go on time, and was extremely professional and courteous to our family and friends. On top of that, he gave me a very fair price and did not gouge me because it was a "wedding" like so many other catering companies wanted to do. I am incredibly grateful that I crossed paths with Kai and we will most definitely be using him and his team in the future! Thank you again for helping to make our big day memorable! More...

The food was very good.  Lots of compliments on the catering from our guests.  Went above and beyond with our menu requests by adding items that were not even on the menu.  Kai and his staff will work with you to meet your needs. More...

We used Touch Of Paradise Catering for my daughters college grad party with a  luau Hawaiian based theme.  Kai, the owner worked with me to develop a fantastic menu selection for the event.  We had delicious chicken thighs with a fabulous sauce, a healthy and delicious  salad, pineapple rice and delicious pork sliders.  Everybody loved the food and the flavors were delicious. Kai served us throughout the evening and took care of  all the  set up and clean up.  Five stars to Touch of Paradise. More...

Kai at Touch of Paradise catered our 35th anniversary party this weekend. Kai was very easy to work with. We chose the Luau menu.  We added the coconut shrimp as an appetizer. I could have made a meal out of just that. So good.His prices are very reasonable, he came at exactly the time we agreed upon. We had 50 guests and had plenty of food. Everyone loved it.I would absolutely use them again for another event. Maybe try one of their other menus. More...

The food is amazing! We had Touch of Paradise serve dinner for our formal wedding and all our guests loved the food. Having to talked to dozens of catering businesses, we can say that Kai was the best choice. The food looked great, it tasted great, and there were no problems at all!Kai also made the entire process very easy for us. He checked in with us throughout the planning to make sure we got everything we needed and he was very accommodating. His staff is wonderful too, I enjoyed talking with them and setting up with them.I would definitely work with Touch of Paradise again -more things to try on the menu! More...

We used Touch of Paradise Catering for my 30th birthday party last weekend and WOW! We were very impressed.All the reviews are correct when they say Kai is very easy to work with and is very flexible. We eventually decided on chicken, kalua pork, salad, fruit and dinner rolls for our menu. Everything was very delicious and both meats were flavorful and tender (I always worry chicken will be dry). We did all the planning with Kai and on the day of George was the one who handled our event (about 35 people). George set up everything and didn't need anything from us (which was great because we were busy with other vendors) and served all the food quickly and efficiently. The price was very reasonable as well.We would 100% not hesitate to use Touch of Paradise again next time we need catering. A great experience all around.(They also suggested two other vendors - Oceanic Arts for decor rental and Alohi's Polynesian Dance Studio for entertainment. Both of these vendors were fantastic as well). More...

Chef Kai did an outstanding job and the food was fantastic. His crew set up and cleaned up in a very timely matter. What was really nice was I didn't have to even talk to them, they did everything perfectly. I used Touch of Paradise for my husbands 60th birthday , 100 guests and there was plenty of food. More...

I just recently had a brunch party at my house and Touch of Paradise catered the entire entrée! WOW!!!  The food was absolutely delicious and the presentation of all of the food was gorgeous!  Both together were creative, unique and fun! I kept hoping for the food to come back around again to eat!  Chef Kai and his staff are beyond wonderful and friendly!  I can't wait to go to another Touch of Paradise Catering event! More...

Kai catered our wedding. He was absolutely wonderful to work with, very responsive and concerned about your needs! His food is too die for! The Hawaiian pork melts in your mouth! His carne asada tacos were delicious! Most guests favorite dish was his special salad. How can salad taste so good?! I would highly reccommend Kai for any event. He is very reliable and provide exceptional food and service! Thanks, Kai! More...

Kai has been SUCH a pleasure to work with and we have nothing but glowing reviews regarding his food and his service. He caters to our sorority house once a week and handles large parties of 100 once a month for our chapter. I also work with him directly to cater food for our large Founder's Day event once a year. He is extremely kind, generous, and understanding of our budgetary needs. They always show up on time and provide excellent service for our events. I highly recommend him! More...

Touch of Paradise makes the BEST food of many many caterers I've used in the past. We will be using them again in the next few months. This catering service is very professional and I also received many compliments from my employees that the food was great! Keep up the great work! More...

As good as it gets!  My family went with this company to cater for my family members wedding ceremony, and they were just amazing!  We did a luau style type of buffet and it worked out perfectly for how much food everyone wanted.  The food was amazing, too!  He provided us with both chicken and steak kebabs, rice, salad, bread a vegetable mix, and small hand desserts-absolutely no complaints!  They did a great job with it.  All our guests loved it and there weren't any complaints at all.  He made sure that everything was to our family's needs with our time layout and was easy to work with.  Communication was great!  Both him and his staff were very professional and you were able to approach any of them if we needed anything or if we wanted to adjust/change something.  They were very accommodating to our needs.  They bring everything they need to both prep and serve the food, so it was convenient to not have to provide an actual kitchen to get the food ready.  They set up everything themselves so we all basically just got to sit back and relax and wait for the event to begin. Best of all, he's very reasonably priced, especially since we didn't have a large budget.  We had 110 people at our event and there was still plenty of leftovers to last us for the rest of the week.  I would recommend this company to any and all of my friends/family in need of a caterer.  Thank you again so much Kai for your great service!  I'll definitely be using you again for future events and if anyone else is looking for a caterer!!

Absolutely would recommend Touch of Paradise Catering. I found him searching the web for a luau theme church event and Chef Kai was so accomodating to our requests and limited budget we had to work with. He took the time to find out exactly what we wanted and how he could make it work to fit our budget. We ordered kalua pork sliders and cole slaw for an event for about 1,000 people and it was delicious. The pork was tender and the cole slaw was a great little topping for the sliders. Everyone loved it and no complaints except they wanted seconds! I think more catering companies should operate the way Chef Kai does. He works with your budget. He makes simple suggestions on what to serve without compromising on the quality of the food. He was professional, and he delivered exactly what we ordered and wanted. I will definitely use him again for my next event. More...

I am sticking by my 5 star review! My wedding was wonderful and the FOOD WAS AWESOME! I have had multiple people ask about the food and who catered! Kai's team showed up and had the food set up well and was right on time!! My location had no kitchen so they grilled right outside! I think one of the things I liked the most was, I felt important. As mentioned in my previous review we did not have a ton of money and Kai worked with us asked if the price seemed fair!  He made it very VERY CLEAR that we would not get our $500 deposit back if we canceled. In addition he let me know that if I needed to add more guest like a week before the event that was fine. but 3 days or so before he would have purchased the food so I needed to give him the final count before then-Which is smart business!I had 185 guest and had ordered food for 170 and yet we had enough AND leftovers!!!The other reviewer mentioned that he canceled within 3 days and was upset he received no refund.- I don't want to be mean but.... I can understand why not. By that time the food for  was probably already purchased for the event. I sure hope the other reviewer still got the tacos. We had them (and grilled Salmon and Chicken Skewers) for our wedding and they were goooooooooooooooood!!!  I can't say enough good things! Thank you Kai for being a part of such a special day and for making sure everything was handles well! More...

I am using this catering company for my wedding. We did a taste testing and the food is exquisite. The quality is fantastic and the prices are great. I feel as if this company truly cares about your event and will try to do their best to make it great without trying to rip you off. I swear, the food is great, seriously delicious. I highly recommend. More...

I recently used Touch of Paradise for my 40th Birthday. I've used catering companies in the past that were just ok but very expensive. I did some research this time before I booked another catering company. I booked Touch of Paradise because they were very reasonable in price and offered live entertainment. I love live entertainment especially when it comes to you. I requested to have live music from the Mariachis they offered. The Mariachis were great and the food was very flavorful. I'm really glad I found Touch of Paradise to cater my party. They were very professional and will use them again for another event (possibly New Years). Thanks guys for making my 40th a night to remember! More...

I was referred to Touch Of Paraise Catering by one of my good friends. They had mentioned to me that both the food and service provided by them would be exceptional. Little did I expect, though, that they would indeed meet up to the standards my friend had mentioned to me. I was throwing a wedding reception for a large group of people of about 200. They were very quick with setting up and were very compatible with any last minute changes that were requested. The menu options were excelent, considering that there were many different things to pick from. The food for this event they did for us was extremely delicious-by far some of the best food I've had in comparision to other events I've attended that friends or family invited me to with a different caterer. They are very resonable with the budget you have and will work with you to help make the best event possible. They also have live entertainment with Polynesian Dancers, which made the experience even more fun and memorable. I would highly recommend you have Touch Of Paradise Catering help to throw your next event-you won't be disappointed! More...

I needed to plan a reception for 150 people in a very short timeframe and under a VERY tight budget. To top it off, I needed to coordinate this from several hundred miles away, having never visited the Anaheim area before. Kai and Touch of Paradise catering were amazing. Within a couple of days, Kai found a venue, all necessary rentals, and put together several great menu options, all for under $4,500. He listened to my needs and was very flexible and communicative. Circumstances beyond my control ultimately forced us to go with another option for our reception, but I wouldn't hesitate to call Touch of Paradise the next time I need to plan an event in Southern California.

I was referred to Touch of Paradise Catering by a friend. They did a great job catering my housewarming party. I had everyone asking where the food was from. Their food was a hit and it was very reasonable in price. I will be using them again to cater my husbands birthday party. We are having a Hawaiian theme party and Touch of Paradise Catering offers entertainment as well. We are going to have them cater the party and bring Polynesian Dancers. Thanks guys, see you at my next event! More...
