Kind Words From Happy Chefs & Clients

What our Chefs & Clients say about us

Could I just place on record my most sincere thanks to Chris and his team. I requested a chef for the Christmas period at rather short notice, within the hour the problem was solved. The chef was fantastic, punctual and highly skilled. Needless to say I was thrilled. Thanks guys and I won’t hesitate to contact you again in the future -Team Regan George Catering Services.

Working for Chris is a pleasure, working as much or little as you like. Would Definitely recommend for both chefs and clients in need!

Chris has been awesome and I’ve loved working for Optimal, I would happily do it again in the future!

Give these guys a go, you won’t be disappointed!

What can I say, professional from the start. Excellent service. Over and above on the levels of service and would do anything to help, exceeded expectations massively, highly recommend!!

You guys were absolutely amazing! We were blown away by how you went above and beyond to help

I just want to say a few words, Chris and his team have been second to none, working to the highest of standards for me and my kitchen. I have worked with Chris on a personal level and the passion and dedication as a chef comes through and is apparent in providing quality staff along with great experience. I would go to Chris before anyone else, thank you for everything.
