The best part about my job is getting to know people from all over the world and celebrating my love for food and Hawaiian culture with others. I sincerely treasure all the personal relationships I form with my clients and the connections made around vibrant food experiences. Thank you for letting us be a part of your ohana.

“Bonita is an amazing chef all the way around—her presentation is beautiful, the ingredients are fresh & locally grown and the flavors are out of this world! She is great to work with and fun to have at the house as well. We enjoy her food, service, and company!”

– Renee Parsons, Hualalai Resident

“Bonita, I can’t tell you what a pleasure you were to work with! You are so talented and just delightful to be around. We feel so very lucky that of all the options I was sent that I chose you!! We could not have been more thrilled with every aspect of your service – from the quality of the food to the presentations to the staff you enlisted to the thoroughness, cleanliness and completeness of the way you left our kitchen after every meal. All the kids said you felt like part of the family who had always been with us. You and your service were hands down the best part of our vacation! I can’t wait to have you work with my family again. You are simply the best!!!”

“Coming from the Bay Area we are used to innovative and high quality culinary experiences. Can not recommend Queen’s Table enough! They were the cherry on top our perfect intimate Big Island Wedding!”

– Renee Riggert, San Francisco

“Queen’s Table Catering created the most beautiful meal for our group of 550 people from the US, Canada, China, and Japan. We were having a tour day up at a ranch in the Kealakekua area. It was by far the best food our group ate all week. I received so many compliments from our attendees, many of which have extensive dietary needs. Our vegans and vegetarians were absolutely delighted, along with all our other guests.

The food was not only delicious, but it was beautiful too. Bonita and her staff were professional and totally got the vibe we were going for.

I hope I’m able to plan lots more events on the Big Island so we can eat more of Bonita Lao’s food!”

– Shelly Gardney, DoTERRA Essential Oils Special Events

“I highly recommend Queen’s Table Catering. Bonita and her team catered our daughter and new son-in-law’s wedding in Keauhou early this summer. Bonita comes with impressive credentials, and believe me, she lives up to them all. Bonita was a delight to work with, from the initial menu tasting to the final clean-up after the event. Her crew is as gracious and professional as Bonita herself is. Bonita provided elegant and inventive farm-to-table Hawaiian Fusion dishes that are still garnering non-stop raves from our 106 guests. As everyone knows, the meal can make or break what might otherwise be a lovely event…Bonita’s wonderful and delicious food helped make our daughter’s wedding reception magical.”
