“We are so grateful for having you and your ohana prepare the delicious food for our grandson’s 1st birthday. We’ve had endless wonderful compliments about the food and cake. It sure was a blessing for our son (8th grade) to come home with your business card and we made the right choice by having you cater the delicious foods. We will surely keep you in mind again when making another party.  We will recommend family and friends to contact you for catering!  Again thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”

“Here in Hawaii we have a lot of ethnic foods to choose from and for all occasions the traditional Hawaiian Food ranks right up there among the best.  Good food, good entertainment and among good people is always the success for a special gathering. I’ve tasted George Padeken’s Hawaiian Food and it is excellent. The Kalua Pork and Poke is excellent. Not only in taste but in presentation. Nice evenly red fish cut into uniform size cubes with just the right amount of salt, ogo, dash of hot pepper and other spices. Lomi Salmon is tops also. The Chicken Long rice is no plain white looking dish. The chicken is cut into neatly pieces and tasty. It would warm your heart and chase away  your cold if you had one. It’s a meal in itself just like the Squid (tako) Luau. Hot or cold it taste good. Poi, Haupia, Li Hing Pineapple just compliments the main dishes and specially made desserts are baked by someone who knows what good baking is all about!”

“My family and I heard of George’s Hawaiian food service from fellow firefighters.  We were tremendously impressed with the food and the service that was given.  Family members who participated with our son’s first luau also complimented on how great the food was and asked about the caterer.  His prices were just as good as the food.  Our Villalobos Ohana would like to thank the Padeken Ohana for making our son’s luau a very enjoyable and memorable experience that we will always remember.  We recommend his Hawaiian food to anyone we know because it is the best in town!”

“Our daughter had always wanted Hawaiian food for her graduation party.  We had attended a friend’s graduation party, and once we tasted the food, we thought it was the best we ever had.  Our daughter asked us “Who made the ono food?”  We asked our friends and found out it was made by George Padeken.  Our daughter said she didn’t care what else she had for her party the following year, but she had to have that delicious Hawaiian food.  We recently celebrated her high school graduation, and of course we had George’s delicious menu at our party.  All of our guests raved about the delicious Hawaiian food, including our daughter’s favorite dish, squid luau, and this time, everyone was asking us “who made the food?” Everything was so delicious and the price was so reasonable,  we would definitely recommend George’s Hawaiian food to all of our friends!”

“George Padeken makes the best Hawaiian Food I have ever tasted! I was referred to George by a college to cater lunch last summer for my entire office staff and agents. We had about 40 people in the office that day, so I asked him to make enough food for at least 50 people. I thought that it would be too much, but to my surprise, it was almost gone before I got a chance to get a plate. Everyone in the office told me the food was fantastic, and said that they would love to have his food again. Around Xmas time, I asked George to cater lunch again. This time we had enough to feed more than 70 people since we came close to running out last time. I thought that for sure we would have enough, so I waited 45 minutes before I went to get some food so I could catch up on some work. By the time I walked into the break room, they were already cleaning up, and the food was gone! Since then, several people in my office has contacted George to cater their events. By far, George’s Hawaiian Food is the very best, especially the squid luau!”

“My family and I enjoy George’s Hawaiian food on many holidays and special occasions like Christmas, New Years, and baby luaus. How we feel about George’s food is simple…We love it! It’s the best we’ve ever tasted! Personally, I look forward to eating the squid luau, because it’s the best I’ve ever had. It’s perfectly sweet and has a generous amount of squid to satisfy my craving. The menu is affordable and you have the option of creating your own menu for your special occasion. I promise you, your guests will be raving about the food and asking you, “Who made the food? It’s so ono!”
