We had a really wonderful stay at Zamani. Our expectations were exceeded in terms of the llocation and property. Truly beautiful. On top of that, the host was very welcoming and even answered some questions we had during the week, via sms. The configuration of the house was ideal for a large group that included small children. We also hired a chef for one night - Paul at Tailor Made Top Nosh. I would highly recommend him. The food and service was outstanding and Paul was a very charismatic character. We would love to return another time!
Good morning Paul
Just a quick note to thank you for doing the catering on Saturday evening. Kathryn and Martyn were outstanding & the food was delicious and the service was excellent
You've beaten me to it! It was a tremendous success. The food was fantastic and Martin / Kathryn were great. Please do pass on our thanks to them, they did a brilliant job - despite the challenges of a new born, a toddler and a dog all creating some challenges!
I was going to email you today to let you know that Saturday went well and that everyone enjoyed the food which was delicious. The waitresses also did a great job. We all had a great time, and really appreciated the meal and how stress free it was for myself and Patrick as hosts!
Thank you very much for everything, it has been a pleasure dealing with you leading up to the event.
Thank you we had a lovely time and Martin and Francesca were stars. I'm afraid they had to put up with many interruptions for photos, and they were excellent. Well done and thanks to them both.
Again, thank you and best wishes
Diane & Alan
Just a short note of thanks for an amazing experience this weekend. All our guests loved the food very much. I hope to work with you again in the future.
I was going to drop you a line later thanking you for a great evening
The food was excellent and the service first class.
Great job and thanks again
We should have left you a note to say how much we (and of course our guests) enjoyed the two splendid buffet lunches you delivered for us last week. The food was fresh and delicious, with lots of contrasting flavours. You delivered it so reliably and professionally that we could relax and just concentrate on being with our guests. We shall certainly recommend you.
Very many thanks and I hope your busy summer continues to go well!
Hilary and Rod
Thank you for another smashing evening and more delicious food. I was going to write you a letter and post it but I can’t find my quill anywhere!
My parents throughly enjoy your coming to cook and that makes me very happy!
A massive thank you for Saturday. It all went amazingly well. The food was delicious and Kris the chef was really professional. We hardly noticed him working.
All the guests were very impressed and we will definitely use your services again in future. My favourite was the lemon tart. It was just lovely.
Just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for the food and service you provided at our family private dinner Island Lodge Sat 15 April 17.
Every aspect was simply superb , all the family were taken back by how excellent the food was.
We are regular cruisers and have enjoyed some fantastic meals served up by top chefs, the meal you served my family ranks as one of the best we have ever enjoyed.
It was a great recommendation from Peter and I look forward to using you in the future
Paul & Family .
I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you and your brilliant team for such a wonderful day. The service was incredible and we have already had so many messages complementing the delicious food.
I'm sorry I did not manage to say goodbye or thank you in person. Please pass on my thanks to David who really was superb front of house.
Thank you again
Sophie & Lewis
Dear Paul and David
Thank you both so much for preparing and serving our dinner on Saturday evening. We had a lovely weekend celebrating John’s birthday but the dinner was definitely the highlight!
We just wanted to thank you and David again for a wonderful evening on Saturday. It was such a treat for us all to sit back and be presented with delicious food without lifting a finger! Our Mum certainly enjoyed herself and we all thoroughly enjoyed your food and table service and thank you for all the extra bits like clearing up from the children's meal - all much appreciated. Please could you pass on our thanks to David too.
on behalf of us all!
Dear Paul and Catherine
On behalf of all the family, I would like to thank you both for all you did to make my birthday such a memorable occasion. I don’t think the evening could have gone better. The food was superb and your efforts from beginning to end made it not only a memorable experience but also a very relaxing one.
Thanks once again
Thank you very much, the whole experience from when Kris & Kathryn arrived to when they left was excellent. The food was delicious, the service was lovely, the whole evening was a great success
The birthday boy was thrilled!
Thank you, Kris & Kathryn very much
Thank you so much for the splendid evening you gave us
The food was absolutely delicious, the service impeccable and relaxed- just what we wanted. Everyone was very complementary
Once again many thanks to both you and David
Celia and Patrick
It was a sensational wedding breakfast ! Thank you so much for bringing us through a major milestone event - our first wedding and so grateful to have had your expertise and input !
It was a pleasure to have worked with you , and I shall pass on the word to any future friends with events ahead !
Thank you so much for a delicious and highly entertaining dinner on Thursday. My parents thoroughly enjoyed the evening and have chatted about it many times since. It really was a highlight of our trip to Bruern. We are planning to come back next year and will definitely book you again......
Lisa and the family.
Dear Paul and Peta
Thank you for a delicious dinner on Saturday night - lots of lovely comments from people yesterday about the food and service. Everyone really enjoyed the evening.
Hopefully it won't be quite as long until we see you again!
I really must thank you so much for the wonderful feast you and your team provided for Sarah and Alec's wedding on Saturday. It really was absolutely perfect. Eric had been very dubious about the logistics of producing a meal at the Bodleian, but you managed it perfectly, with flying colours: absolutely marvellous!
We'd have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone else who was considering a very special function at the Bodleian.
Have an excellent Christmas.
With very best wishes
Just wanted to say again, thank you so much for your services over the weekend. The feedback from all the guys has been that the meal was outstanding and took our whole event to the next level. Both yourself and David were the nicest, most hospitable and incredibly professional team. It was an honour to have had you cook for us and I will be highly recommending you to friends and family...
Thank you so very much for a superb meal on Friday evening, everything was cooked/prepared to perfection, definitely my sort of food! You seemed so relaxed and organised that I never worried about a thing
David, Kathryn and Marek were excellent, attentive but never intrusive, you all make an excellent team. Please pass on our thanks to them.
The weekend went so well, such a great place. It seems a bit flat now but we have some great memories to reflect on!
Thank you again.
I just wanted to let you know how impressed we were with both you and your team at the weekend. As it was my 15th Wedding Anniversary and we were renewing our vows & expectation was high for the food in the afternoon and you didn't disappoint. Everything was done with the minimum of fuss and David at the front of house was a superstar. All of our guests commented on the quality of the food especially that lemon tart. The whole operation was really slick and the kitchen was cleaner than when you went in there so many thanks for that!!
If I was doing another one of these I would not hesitate in calling you to arrange another great day.
Many thanks once again,
Thank you for helping to make Jules birthday so special. We had a wonderful time and the food was delicious. Robert said it was the best piece of beef he'd ever had and was cooked perfectly. If we ever stay that way again we will definitely call on you again and would thoroughly recommend you to anyone.
Just wanted to pop you a quick not to say a huge thanks to you and your team for Saturday night. Everyone absolutely loved the food and it made for a wonderful evening.
All the best.
Thank you so much for serving us a superb dinner at Watery Park Barn. We were all extremely impressed with the quality of the food and the professional manner in which it was delivered to us. Outstanding service, exactly what we wanted to celebrate my mother’s birthday and I would not hesitate to recommend you. Please pass on our thanks to your waiter
I just wanted to say thank you again for a perfect night on Saturday.
The food was fantastic, cooked to perfection and the service was amazing.
Please pass my thanks onto David and the girls.
Hope to enjoy it again.
Everything was perfect. The food was absolutely delicious. We couldn't have had better as was evidenced by the clean plates all round.
Thank you very much.
I just wanted to say thank you so much for helping me create the best hen night for my friend on Saturday. Everyone was extremely impressed not only by the amazing food but also at how professionally the process was carried out by you both. It was all perfect and stress-free, and I will be recommending you to all.
Thank you so much for all the arrangements yesterday at the Divinity School for our Festival Lunch and Festival Dinner. You and your team arranged everything so well on both occasions and the food was delicious for both meals and much praised and commented upon by our guests.
I can't tell you how reassuring it is on these prestige occasions for Sally and to know that we don't have to worry about anything on the catering front.
Please convey our thanks to your chefs and all your team.
With warmest appreciation to your wife and yourself.
I'm just back from Oxford and couldn't leave it any longer to email you, your wife and team to say a big Thank You for yesterday. You are without doubt the most unflappable professional caterers I've ever come across!
I heard so many positive things about the dinner last night - people raving about the food and how well the evening went.
Thank you - who knows I may see you again next year?!
Thanks again to you both for a wonderful evening on Saturday. We were thoroughly impressed and wouldn't hesitate to recommend you. I couldn't believe how unobtrusive you were, especially in an open plan space! The food was delicious (best sticky toffee pudding I've ever had!) and the attention to detail was second to none.
I just wanted to say a big thank you for your help and for putting up with a stag group.
The food and service was impeccable. Lovely.
All the best for the future
Just to say thank you very much for the wonderful meal you cooked for my husbands 70thbirthday,enjoyed by all
I waited until all the accolades were in before emailing you to say such a big thank you for your beautiful haute cuisine. Also to your knowledgeable, delightful staff. Everyone commented on not only the fare but presentation and service ( of course we tried to take credit for the menu!! ). From our point of view a special thank you for every part of your professionalism, I think the only time I relaxed was when you were there! Birthday boy had a fantastic time and that is what it is all about. You have such a talent down to the tiniest detail ( and don't think it went unnoticed!! ) we were very lucky to have you with us.
With very best wishes
I just wanted to write on behalf of all of us to say thank you once again for such an amazing meal on Friday night. As hoped, Judy was truly surprised by the entire weekend but like the rest of us, cannot stop talking about how good the food was. Between us over the years we have eaten in some great restaurants but we all agreed that none of us had ever had meat so flavoursome and tender. All the main course accompaniments – from sauces to vegetables were perfect. Both starters were sublime and the puddings like a big hug at the end of the meal. We were all full to the brim by the end of the evening (some of us until quite late into the next day!!).
I think I can speak for all of us when I say, I hope we can use your culinary services again. Thanks again you to you and your colleague for a lovely evening
...To send you so many congratulations on a really superb evening on Saturday – also to young William – who couldn't have been more professional and easy-going and hardworking all at the same time! The highest standards of cuisine and courtesy made it all very memorable in our family story!
I was always confident you would provide the perfect meal, but what I hadn't expected was the extra sparkle you gave to the evening. The food was delicious and the left-overs scoffed the next day. I was so pleased with the way you provided the various choices - something for everyone.
Please thank Guy for the contribution he made......It was a wonderful evening for all of us. I am most grateful
I just wanted to say thank you for the fantastic meal that you cooked for us on Saturday. Both the food and service were flawless and having you cook dinner for us made the evening run so smoothly.
Thank you once again
Thank you again for Saturday night, the food & service were superb
Many thanks to you and your team. We had an excellent evening, and it was agreed by all that the food and service provided was first class (or top notch!).
I look forward to using/recommending your services in future.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for Saturday night, I can not explain what a success it all was!
Everyone there was hugely impressed by the food and service, and it was just heaven to relax and enjoy ourselves throughout the evening.
Many many thanks again for making Saturday such a success. We will be talking about the delicious meal you cooked for sometime to come!!! We still can't believe that was all achieved in our own home setting. It is with pleasure I will be leaving feedback and we will hope to book you again in the future (by which time I'm sure I will have worked out how to use my oven!!).
I just wanted to say many thanks for the delicious meal last night, it was a perfect present for Jeroen and we enjoyed it very much
I just wanted to say another huge thank you for everything you and your team did for us on Saturday. The food was really amazing, the service superb and everything ran like clock work. How you managed that in the environment you had to work in I don't know,
We really appreciated it all
It was a delicious lunch on Sunday and everyone was very appreciative. Thank you so much for doing it all and saving all the hassle....
Just wanted to say another thank you for Saturday night. We found the food to be excellent and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!
I am sure we will contact you again in the future for another special occasion down at the lakes!
All the best
I wanted to thank you so much for the amazing food on Saturday, we all had a wonderful evening and the catering was First Class!!
Till next time - thanks again
Only one word - AMAZING!
Food was out of this world. We will be recommending you...
Thanks so much for coming out through the floods.........
Saturday night was fantastic. Chef was brilliant and the food was perfect. Everyone enjoyed it immensely. .....the lovely lady who came to waitress....was wonderful. The table looked beautiful and she managed to make us feel like we were in a 5* restaurant.
Thank you for a memorable evening on Monday. We all very much enjoyed the food - especially the starter which was most unusual and a wonderful selection of flavours - and, having the charming Guy to serve us, made the evening most relaxing and delightful. Not having to do anything at all was so pleasant for me, as the hostess - no shopping, slaving or clearing up!
Having gone into this at the last minute and never having done it before, we really didn't know what to expect. The ease and and pleasure of it all was remarkable and we would certainly consider doing it again and compliment you on the whole experience.
Thank you both - with best wishes
Food was great and Peter was a dream to have in the kitchen. My daughters-in-law wanted to kidnap him!
Very many thanks
See you in the New Year!
We have an incredible honeymoon thanks. In fact it was only surpassed by the great wedding day. Thank you so much for everything, there has been a constant thread of warm words for the food and service. There seems to be a general air of confusion about how you produced all the soufflé's!! Thank you for everything, it really made our day.
Just a quick to thank you so much for Saturday - the food was amazing - and everyone was talking about it all night, particularly the scallops (and for one person the blue cheese!)! My friend had a great weekend, and the dinner was a big part of that, so thank you.
If you ever need any form of recommendation please let me know, I would be more than happy.
Thanks so much for everything. All the guests really enjoyed themselves and I received several emails over the weekend remarking on the canapés. Please pass on our thanks also to your serving staff....with renewed thanks for your Herculean efforts on the location.
We’re just coming back to reality after our wonderful holidays in Westwell and in Greece and I just wanted to say how much we appreciated all that you did for us while we were at The Old Rectory. Your fabulous meals were the centre around which the whole holiday revolved. I’ve even had thank you letters from friends raving about the delicious meals.....thank you so much for enabling us all to enjoy ourselves in such a relaxing way over your many varied and very tasty menus. Everyone is missing tea time very much!
Everything was lovely Paul. Thanks very much. Food delicious and service fantastic. SO glad we had the waiter and I see now why you need one. Great attention to detail and my kitchen never looked so clean!!
Thank you for a great night off, it was a real treat especially after such a hectic weekend. I have passed your details on to family and friends.
Thank you once again
Just a quick mail to say thank you very much for the service you provided last night. The food, service and attention to detail were fantastic. We had a great time and my mum and dad had a night that they will always remember.....many thanks
Elizabeth and I, and our whole party, would like to reiterate our thanks to you and your helpers for giving us such a wonderful evening on Saturday. The food and service was all we had hoped for and more. And all done in such an easy and relaxed fashion.
We are all trying to come up with ideas for another opportunity to call on you again for, what we are sure would be, another memorable evening.
All good wishes and thanks to you and all your team
Diana & Elizabeth
