We first knew of Jon and Paella Show a few years ago when he was hired for a friend's party, and finally, after having to postpone an event last year due to COVID-19, we got to have him at one of our events!Jon was excellent, he was very generous and worked with us through our initial postponement during the beginning of COVID-19 when everything was uncertain, and honoured our deposit and price per head when not many others did the same - he didn't have to do that at all.When we got to have our event after restrictions eased, he showed up early, and was extremely professional and warm. The food was delicious, and he made extra so we had leftovers!We definitely want to have him back at one of our events one day soon. Highly recommend!

Jon is super to deal with. Efficient & friendly. The food is beautiful & nothing is too much trouble.
We have used him for events with hundreds of people & just a small crew of 30. Regardless of the numbers, he is always happy to help out & his presence & cuisine always adds to the enjoyment of the party

So much great feedback on the food, Paella Show catered for our Xmas party of nearly 40. The aroma wafting through the air was a great way to set the night, and the food didn't disappoint. The tapas was delish as was the paella. So glad we had you cater, you made the evening and made night. Thank you!

I live in the USA and I asked Jon from Paella Show to cook paella for my sister's birthday. It was a HUGE hit!! I signed up various relatives to make sangria, Jon brought the food, and my brother-in-law made the birthday cakes. My nephew, a foodie, said it was the best paella he had even had - he went back for a third helping!! Jon was really responsive and easy to work with, even from afar. He set-up quickly, was really unobtrusive but happy to chat if people asked questions or wanted to talk. The night was magical and will be remembered for years to come. Everyone is already asking me when we can do it again. You can't go wrong - just call Jon and hire Paella Show!!

I would highly recommend Jon for any special occasion. Our party of 20 thoroughly enjoyed our paella, from presentation through to flavour! We wouldn't have even known that Jon was there. He effortlessly set up, prepared a delicious, and generous serve of paella and salad, and left without a trace. What a hassle free, and fabulous way to cater for any gathering. Thanks Jon.

We had Jon do paella party recently for my mom’s b’day - it was great. He was very easy to discuss details with prior to ordering; arrived in time and set himself up with no hassle; served up 2 delicious paella variations to suit the group, and he cleared up with equal ease. I had not had his food before, just selected him based on Internet reviews, so I’m particularly happy that it all turned out so well. Thanks Jon, I have no doubt many of the attendees will have you cater one day! Best wishes. See you again.

These guys were amazing!! We hired them for my mum’s 60th and nothing could have been easier. They replied to emails quickly and booked us in straight away. They arrived dead on time, set up quickly and without incident, and got started straight away. They were professional and delightful the whole night, with nothing being too much of a problem. The food was delicious and their pack up was super quick and not at all noticeable. They took everything with them and left the deck cleaner than they found it! Worth every penny!

Thank you so much Paella Show for the wonderful paella you cooked us for my daughter's 21st. It was in the middle of that dreadful storm at Coogee, our marquee blew away and we had to change all our plans. You were so kind and accomodating and nothing was too much trouble. Most importantly everyone loved the food. Best mussels we have ever eaten. Thank you.

My experience with Paella Show was outstanding! I was organising a charity event for the Captain Courageous Foundation and approached Jon for his support of this worthy cause. He was immediately understanding of the situation and came back with an amazing proposal and was so easy to deal with from suggesting quantities, varieties, set-up, lighting, staffing etc. He kept me regularly updated and didn't disappoint on the night - the food was delicious and the staff delightful - all the guests were extremely complimentary. I would highly recommend Paella Show - thanks Jon and the team

It was the best decision to have paella at our recent party, all our family and friends had great things to say about how delicious it was. It was a pleasure to have Jon and Fabi at the event who helped to make it such a memorable night, everything went so smoothly and the novelty factor of watching the paella come together added some fun. Paella ticked lots of boxes for us being gluten free and the fact you could eat it just with a fork meant we didn't have to provide tables to sit at for our guests as we have limited space. Jon was really helpful in the lead up answering all my questions! I highly recommend paella show.

Jon catered for a Farewell Party for our nephew. We had 40 guests, including 20 hungry teenage boys. Jon was so easy to work with. He was communicative and reliable. We live in an apartment, so there were some logistical challenges. Jon handled these with ease. The timing was perfect but most importantly of all, the Paella was divine. It was fresh and delicious and our guests enjoyed being part of the preparation. Jon was courteous and pleasant and within moments of packing up, a total clean up was complete. I would highly recommend "Paella Show".
