    I've been to a lot of catered events and, thankfully, I knew that Chef Chai does a great job at catering. Their menu was exquisite. My guests loved their food, and I was very happy with how easy they were to work with.

    My wedding was last month (January 2015) and having our wedding dinner at Chef Chai is something that our guests are still talking about. Planning a destination wedding is always difficult because you have to rely on reviews for just about everything. We looked up "best chefs Hawaii" and hundreds of Yelp reviews for Chef Chai popped up. We had always envisioned one long table for our wedding dinner -- something intimate where we could actually hear, see and talk to everyone. The food was really important to us because my wife and I are huge foodies. When we contacted Chai, he suggested his private room, just off of the main restaurant which would accommodate our party size and our request for one long table. I worked with him on the menu details and when our wedding day rolled around, absolutely everything was how we wanted it. The food, the environment, the staff, it was perfect. I would recommend working with Chef Chai and can't wait to go back next time we're in Honolulu.

    Chef Chai is Amazing! I can not say enough about his food, staff and food quaility. His restaurants have been a favorite of both my wife and I for over 15 years and his catering for your wedding will keep your guests talking long after your wedding. Highly recommend.
