What our clients say...

We have been lucky enough to cater hundreds (if not thousands) of events all over Perth and the South West. Here are some of the emails we have received from our happy clients:

“Whilst in Perth I attended a truly delightful soiree for my new Verjuice Cookbook at Beaufort Street Books. It was such a relaxed atmosphere with an intimate audience and I had a wonderful conversation with questions that took us in many directions. The icing on the cake was the really good food served by the caterers, Ryan John Private Chef. Without the luxury of a kitchen out back the food was a true delight, especially the Roast Beef on Yorkshire Puddings! It was beautiful finger food from start to finish; everything really was packed with flavour.”

“Hello Ryan

OMG! What a fantastic night we had yesterday with Eric and Caitlin.
They were both just utterly amazing. Caitlin was exceptional with her service – so much more than I would have ever expected and she was so charming with our guests – so funny too – had several laughs with her. Eric also was brilliant – food exceptional – but also served us at times and was fabulous. Kate even took photos for us, and Eric lit candles and everything to make my husbands Birthday dinner so special. Everyone was blown away (even one couple who have had the experience before with another well known Perth private chef).

I am sure the favourable word will get around.

Again thank you so much. Please pass on to them how pleased we were with your two fabulous team members – awesome.”

“Hi Ryan,

Both Forrest and I just wanted to thank you and your team for doing such a wonderful job at our wedding. We had so many people tell us how wonderful the food was and what a great team you have.

They all did a fantastic job. We were also delighted with how well they cleaned everything up – it made our job so much easier the next day. So thank you again for making our wedding so special.”

“Hi Ryan,

Just to say thank you for the superb canapes you arranged for Tom’s 21st. Everyone commented on the standard of quality and presentation, so hat’s off to you.

Both Kelly and Patrick were great, very obliging and friendly. Hope your wedding turned out as well.

Cards were taken, so I hope you get more business. I’ll certainly be recommending you.

Thanks once again.”

Hi Ryan,

The day was phenomenal! We honestly had the best time and everything just came together perfectly.

Thank you and your chefs so much for the amazing food. We had so many compliments on it – and apparently it lived up to all our hype!  The desserts were absolutely fantastic – my Dad (who is not much of a chocolate fan) loved the brownies and I think has eaten every leftover brownie since!

The staff were very accommodating and very receptive to help out for us.

Honestly can’t thank you enough for the amazing food – it made for such a unique wedding experience for our guests and a very memorable event.

“Hi Ryan,

We would just like to thank you and your team again for the fabulous Gourmet BBQ you did last Sunday to celebrate our daughter’s wedding. You deliver exactly what you promise: amazing food (which guests are still raving about), excellent service, a clean kitchen when you leave and, even better, we had leftovers so I didn’t need to cook the next day!

Thank you so much for making the night stress free for us to enjoy!”

“Hi Ryan

I just wanted to say how fantastic chef Eric was on Friday night!
My husband Omar & I were so impressed, and our guests were equally blown away.
Not only was his cooking first class but his presentation, professionalism and personality were fantastic.

Our guests were after your number so I hope you don’t mind me passing it on.

Thanks again and like I said – a memorable experience, we’ll be in touch and please pass the feedback to Eric.”

“Hi Ryan,

Just wanted to say Thank you so much we had the most amazing night last night for Andrew’s 40th and were so impressed with Eric and the team.
The food was perfect in every way and plenty of it too. I really appreciated your suggestions for drinks and planning- it took a lot of stress and guesswork out of the preparation.

It was fantastic to be abe to relax and enjoy the night we’d planned with friends and not spend the evening (and the two days prior) in front of the oven! I lost count of the number of people who complimented the beautiful food and friendly staff, we loved it all.

Thanks so much, we hope to organise something again with you in the future.”

“Hi Ryan,

What a fabulous night we had last night for our 25th Wedding Anniversary!

Alain and I wish to thank you sincerely for the most amazing food and service. Our night could not have been more perfect. The quality of the food surpassed all our expectations in every way. Our guests were totally satisfied and happy as were we.

It must not have been an easy job to cater for so many different dietary requirements but this was done to perfection. It was wonderful not to have to worry about anything. Your staff are so professional and everything just flowed like clockwork. A superb night!

We very much appreciated the kind gesture of cheese plates.

Thank you so much once again and feel free to use our comments for any testimonials you might like.”

“Hi Ryan

I just wanted to thank you for the amazing job your staff did on the night of our wedding. The food was to die for (and yes it all got eaten), the staff warm and attentive, the clean-up (well amazing), all in the all the experience was just stupendous!

Many of the guests have asked for your card – which your staff were kind enough to bring enough of to go around, and I have not stopped talking about how amazing it all was to all and sundry.

Thank you also for recommending Eunice – the cake and desserts were divine.

Once again thank you for contributing to a wonderful day for both Mark and I.”

Peter and I would like to convey our appreciation for your professional and friendly manner from our first point of contact by email; to visiting us to discuss concepts right through to the day of the party.
Your food was the star of the day and our guests were treated to a sumptuous melody of cocktail delights praised by all.
Ryan you certainly delivered and we are very grateful to you, Ashlie and Lauren for providing exceptional service showing great ease and flair and being part of making our party one to remember.
Many thanks. Your business card will never be too far away.”

“Hi Ryan,

Just wanted to say many thanks for dinner last night – it was another fantastic meal! The pork belly was so crunchy, and that fish was some of the best fish we have ever eaten…mmm, I am still thinking about that crispy skin, just hope I can replicate it!

It is really pleasing to see how far you and the business have come in just two years – we feel very honoured to have been there right from the start!

Thanks again Ryan, it was a great way to celebrate Karen’s birthday in style, the Moss Wood was pretty smooth as well….”

I wanted to let you know that Brad and Hazel looked after us beautifully yesterday. Thank you for organising the day and sending us Brad and Hazel. They did an exemplary job and fitted in with our day magnificently. We along with our friends were all very impressed and pleased.”

“Hi Ryan,

Eric was fantastic, great chef (obviously!) but also very personable.

Everyone really enjoyed the evening and it was a bonus for me to be able to enjoy it with them rather than being in the kitchen.

The food was all really good, great quality, with most peoples favourite course being the fish.

Eric took great care not to make any mess whilst he was cooking and the place was spotless after he had finished.

Thanks for everything,”

“Dear Ryan,

We are back from our honey moon, back at work, back into our routine but we are still talking about our wedding meal. Our friends too, and we wanted to write you a note to thank you very much for the great meal you delivered.

It was all there, delicious, stress free, complete with the tidying up and cleaning afterwards. Looking back, you did give us outstanding service and we all thought the whole event was remarkable. We are talking about getting you back here (or at one of our friend’s house) one day.

I have recommended you around as I really believe you do a great job right from the beginning, making suggesting, shopping and organising, coordinating. We wanted to thank your staff too, including Nathaneal and Ebony. You are very good at your job Ryan, that’s great for you, and great for us!

Sending you a few pictures just to remind you the lovely food you produced!”
