The perfect food for our wedding
We got married in October of 2019. We had a simple DIY type of wedding in which most of the work of setting up was done by our friends and family. As both of us work in the restaurant industry what we were going to eat was very important for me and my wife. needless to say Mama Lamees over-delivered! we had a bunch of different appetizers like the Musakhan and Hummus. but the main course dazzled everyone! the most perfect lamb you can imagine! people still rave about it till this day! thank you Mama Lamees for your part in making our wedding a special occasion!Sent on 04/25/2021

Excellent - Would book her again for any major or minor event.
My guests paid me lots of compliments about how beautiful the wedding was, and was even consulted about how to replicate the ceremony. No compliment, however, compares to the avalanche of praises we got from our guests about how delicious the food catered by Mama Lamees was. I still get comments about how good the food was three years after the wedding. In addition to the quality of the food, Mama Lamees made the process of securing the contract for the wedding venue possible despite some strange conditions and restrictions (like demanding that we only use sterno cans instead of electricity for the food warmers). The venue manager was giving us a hard time sealing the deal with restrictions of what equipment the caterer was allowed and not allowed to use, what type of insurance the caterer had to have, etc. and even made a racist comment about us possibly "slaughtering a goat" during our wedding ceremony at their venue. We let the racist comment pass in the interest of avoiding conflict and getting to use the beautiful venue. Mama Lamees met up with the venue manager and ironed out those issues in one meeting - with the venue manager agreeing to let Mama Lamees do her setup the way she needs it to be despite the initial restrictions/conditions. She was on time, on top of everything, totally organized, and a great chef and caterer. I am forever grateful that she catered my wedding.Sent on 05/04/2021
