Real comments from real customers!

Hi Melissa,
Meant to get back to you over the weekend to say we were absolutely delighted with the food last Friday night and with the prompt (right on time) delivery of the food and the helpful gentleman that brought it. Our team were very impressed with the whole scenario. Like I said, look out for another order soon. Thanks heaps for the folder of information. That is much appreciated.

Hi Graham and Melissa, 
I would like to thank you for the recent work you did at Synnex NZ. On Friday the 21st of September we celebrated the doubling of our Auckland logistics centre and we used your company to provide the canapés, meals, tables, seating, heating, linen and glassware. I found your service to be excellent with getting back to us quickly with a quote, the delivery was on schedule and I found you very pleasant to deal with. Thank you for your service. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to friend or other businesses that are in need of some quality catering. Many thanks. 
Kind regards,
Richard Harri

Hi Charlie and Melissa, 
I would like to thank you both for organising the Catering last night for our Celebration. It was an amazing event! John and the team did a wonderful job and I received great feedback on the food and your staff, everyone here at Rainbow's End said it was absolutely lovely (the chicken was their favourite haha!) 
Thank you once again for your services, and again, Spit Roast always does an exceedingly wonderful job. I look forward to working with you in the future. 
All the best for the remainder of the year and please pass my feedback onto John and his team that were on last night. 
Thanks and Regards,

Hi Charlie, 
Regarding our function we had on 28th January, apologies for the delay in not getting back to you sooner! I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your wonderful staff member who delivered our food to us; she did such a great job, and even raced up to the supermarket to grab some extra bowls and spoons for us – many thanks to her for that (I can’t remember her name, after a few wines the evening is a bit of a blur!) 
The food was absolutely lovely, and everybody said how much they enjoyed it J She did a fabulous job of setting up and we hardly knew she was there, so please pass on my thanks to her for her professionalism and for going the extra mile – was very much appreciated. Thanks Charlie. 
Kind Regards,

Hi Melissa and Charlie, 
We want to say a huge thank you to your team for making our wedding day go so smoothly. 
Everyone was so polite and helpful to all our guest. I didn’t even notice them packing up and leaving after serving the dinner. So professional. 
The food was excellent, and still so much left over. We fed everyone for a few more days afterwards!! I did notice that one of guest accidentally knocked his glass over and smashed it. And we did use all the table clothes that you provided to us, although I have a feeling we had two extras as a just in case and didn’t get charged for them. 
Please let us know how much we owe you for those extras, and we can deposit any extra payment into the bank account. 
So from both us and our Families and friends we wish to say a big Thank You to you and all your great team for making our special day go so smoothly. 
Kind Regards, 
Anita & Vadim

Hi there, 
I would just like to thank you and your team very much for supplying such a yummy meal for us at the races. Everyone was commenting on how great the food was (especially the pork) and also how hassle free you made our day. 
Thanks so much and we will definitely be back!! 

Hi Christine and the Team at Finger Foods, 
Thank you for a very professional and punctual service. The food was excellent and so was the presentation. I will not hesitate to recommend your company and use you services again.

Hello Spit Roast Team,
I would just like to thank your boys who came and did our spit roast catering last night at my mum's 60th. They were absolutely brilliant, professional, but friendly - what more could one ask for?! Not to mention the food which was absolutely delicious. We will be recommending your company to all the people we know, I have no doubt that at some point we will be using your services again after this brilliant experience. 
Thank you Kind regards, 
Jen Puckrin 

Thank you very much for everything you and your staff did to make the wedding at our place a success. We have had many compliments about the food and your staff. 
Stephanie Cashen

Could you please pass on our thanks to the catering team and especially to the person who delivered the food to our home on Saturday 7th April. He was very professional and pleasant and did a wonderful job of setting everything up. This is the second time we have used Spit Roast Catering Company and would certainly do so again. The food was lovely and fresh, and we were impressed with the presentation and efficiency. Our thanks to all involved. 
Kevin and Janine Leaming

Hi there,
I just wanted to say that we were so impressed with your staff, the food, everything! We didn't keep to time despite my best efforts and they were so nice about it. The 2 'wait women' were awesome and asked me if I needed them to stay longer, which I did! Please send me the bill for this. We will happily recommend your company to others. 

Hi Charlie, 
Thanks for organising the catering, the process was very efficient. Melissa was also really lovely and did a great job setting up :-) I would like to pay online via visa if possible. Do you have a link where I can pay the balance? We would like to use the company again and will contact you again soon to set you up as a vendor for future events :-) 
Kind regards,

We want to say thank you for the catering you arranged for us on 11th February for our Golden Wedding celebration. Your Premier Dessert menu was just great, and thank you for your generous offer of ‘Black Bowl Service’ with onsite staff. Thomas was great. Everyone was most impressed with the meal and the service, and it made for a great evening. We would certainly recommend Spit Roast Catering to anyone who was in need of catering services. 
Once again, thanks for an excellent job well done.

Hi Graham

Hi Guys,
Just a quick note to thank you for the spit roast delivery, on time and great food. Our guests thought the food was great, and we had enough left over for a few extra meals as well. (The pork was fantastic)
You guys did a very professional job. Thanks again.

Hi Christine 
Can you please pass my thanks on to John and Heather and their crew for an excellent job done.

Hi Graham and team,
Just wanted to drop a line in and say thanks for a great day on Saturday.
Your Waikato team did a fantastic job – as my mum said “they must have been good, because I didn’t even notice them”, and I feel the same way.  I was able to completely relax and just enjoy myself! Gaylene and the team really outdid themselves with professionalism and taking the initiative. They’re clearly an experienced unit!  As for the choice of food – I was very very happy.  The BBQ Supreme package was just perfect given the amount of varying ages (from 1 year to 87) and tastes, and I hear that my dad and a crew of inebriated rugby boys later polished off the leftover potatoes and meat, which your team had packed up for us!  It was also great having a selection of nibbles packaged up for the bridal party – the groom and head bridesmaid were so nervous about their speeches I think it was the only thing they actually ate all day! Please pass on my thanks to everyone who was involved, for making our “big day” so easy, relaxed and enjoyable!

On behalf of the staff of NZTA Auckland, we would like to thank you all so very much for the Wonderful Meal, which everyone thoroughly enjoyed last Friday at the NZ Army (Arch Hill) Venue.  We had numerous staff comment on the quality, quantity, service etc from the Spit Roast Company.

The excess food was brought back to the office on Friday night and stored away for lunch yesterday, which once again went down well with everyone. We had a really great time and will be recommending the Spit Roast Company to family and friends. Wishing you all a very Merry Xmas and Happy New Year.

Dear Graham and team
Just wanted to send you a quick note of thanks for the fabulous food you supplied for our function yesterday at Pakuranga Rahihi Playcentre. It's not often that all the guests say how wonderful the food is! Your portions were more than generous, and we had heaps of leftovers to share out amongst our families, which was lovely. Thank you for your prompt, efficient and friendly service. It was an absolute pleasure dealing with your company again, and I would recommend you to anyone wanting hassle-free and delicious catering that can be relied up on to deliver on their promises and on-time!
Thank you for your part in making our Playcentre's 50th Jubilee such a success.
Kind regards,

Hi Graham and team…  
Just a very quick note to say how incredibly happy I have been with the brilliant work your team did on providing the catering for our wedding, yesterday. The food was awesome, and served beautifully, and everyone has said how nice your team were to work with and how friendly they were.  Despite me being horribly slow in realizing they had finished all their work, they were incredibly patient and completely professional throughout.  And, of course, prior to the day, the patience that you had with a neurotic bride to be who has never organized an event before was awesome, and your calm response to all my crazy phone calls (including the one made by my wonderful new husband to ask you questions when he didn’t know what the questions were!) was amazingly reassuring. Thanks for being part of making our wedding day perfect. 
Anna McBride

Good morning Christine,
I just wanted to send this e-mail to thank you for the fantastic service that we received from you.  The whole process was simple and painless and the communication from your company was excellent and efficient.  The delivery person, Melissa I believe it was, was cheerful and professional and all the students who attended the event, as well as the teachers, thought that the food was amazing and are looking forward to the next time that they get fed like that! Thank you very much and I hope to do business with you again soon.

Hi Christine
The food was excellent and Johnny and the 2 women with him were great
company. We do enjoy using Spit Roast. The girls loved the food, when they were eating left overs it seemed more like pigs at a trough! Lots of healthy appetites at Marist College! We look forward to seeing you at Yr 13 retreat.

Dear Sir/Madam,
We have just held a second family wedding in our garden and again have used your company as caterers. (Van der Stap - Findon).
I would like to take t his opportunity to say thank you for the wonderful service you provided to us on Saturday. Once again the food served to our guests was varied, delicious and well presented with no sign of scrimping on quality.
I would especially like to comment your staff who were on duty, for their professionalism in the way they went about looking after our guests and cleaning up afterwards. We have another wedding planned for your garden next year and we will be recommending to those people that they seriously look at the Spit Roast Catering Company (Hamilton) as providers for their event. Again a very big thanks for wonderful service.
Kind regards,
Christine Findon (Mother of the Bride)

Dear Gaylene,
