2019 for our December 2020 wedding. Unfortunately with COVID we had to postpone and luckily were able to rebook with Kangaroo Kitchen for NYE 2021. Roman and Ashley made the entire date change process easy and helped with every bit of the re-planning as needed. They go above and beyond to make sure your timeline is perfect on your day which makes everything run smoothly! Our catering team the night of our wedding was also just amazing. They moved our guests quickly through the food line and there was plenty of time for people to grab seconds if they wanted! The appetizers were DELICIOUS and everyone is still talking about how delicious the tacos were. Also, you know the food is amazing when all three kids cleaned their plate from their special chicken and rice, too! We so appreciated how much time and effort was put in to making sure the menu & each dish was prepared safely and in mind of our allergies. We have 8/9 top allergens among just the two of us & it’s rare my husband and I can go anywhere and eat safely. Roman put our minds at ease throughout everything starting on day one! We truly have nothing but the absolute best things to say about Roman, Ashley, and Kangaroo Kitchen! Our night would not have been the same without them and their staff! There is really no debate on the greatest caterer in the area- Kangaroo Kitchen is it.

Would absolutely recommend Kangaroo Kitchen for your wedding! They catered our cocktail hour and our plated dinner for our wedding reception. Roman and Ashley were an absolute dream to work with. We had plenty of servers on our wedding day and ...
Roman was our head chef. The food was incredible and our guests continue to compliment us on it. He even personally came out to check with my now husband and I to make sure everything tasted well and then asked us to point out our parents so that he could check in with them as well. It was incredible the quality, care, and detail they take in their dinner service for weddings. Everything was incredible from communication to service and Roman was extremely transparent with pricing as well. You knew everything you were paying for and he even recommended the best order of when to have people speaking for toasts so food wasn't cold or guests weren't "hangry". Would absolutely recommend Kangaroo Kitchen!

We had to reschedule our wedding 3 times and move venues due to COVID and Roman and team were with ...
us every step of the way. Chef Roman is extremely throughough and detailed, which was a dream because I never felt like I had to ask for more clarity on everything. His team offers up some of the most unique dishes I have ever seen and made our wedding menu exciting to plan.
Day of his team was timely, professional and friendly. Their service and presentation was exceptional and they did not miss a beat. They had to work out of a small hut of a barn and you couldn't even tell.
Our food felt like it came right out of the oven, the brisket fell apart the second your fork touched it. The salad was so fresh and vibrant and I will be dreaming about the potatoes for the next year. I would have went up for a full second plate if I didn't think my dress was going to split open if I did.
My biggest concern at our wedding is that the guest wouldn't like the food. I can tell you, you wont have that problem if you hire Kangaroo Kitchen. There was a reason that every venue we toured recommended them!

ic into the mix it feels downright impossible. But Roman truly took all of our stress away when it came to the food. We were thrown many logistical challenges with changing venues, guest count restrictions, and onsite serving personnel, yet Roman so easily rolled with the punches and offered support and adjustments along the way. We spoke with Roman and Ashley almost daily during the week before the wedding and their care and attention to detail was genuine, thoughtful, and thorough.
Kangaroo Kitchen set up a beautiful display at our hors d'oeuvres station and buffet tables and our guests literally could not stop talking about the food. They went out of their way to tell us that this was the best food they've ever had at a wedding. We still run into guests who celebrated with us and the first thing they mention is how amazing the food was. There truly aren't words to express the gratitude we have for Roman, Ashley, and the rest of the Kangaroo Kitchen team for everything they did for us on the best day of our lives.

The food was all so amazing, it was a struggle! His recommendations were on point.
Pricing was reasonable, and I honestly felt like the quality of his food far surpassed the pricing.
At our reception guests RAVED about the food and dessert shooters(even my extremely finicky aunt did), and we were told that guests were going back for seconds and thirds of everything. The presentation was beautiful, colorful, and fresh.
The staff of KK was friendly, warm, and helpful. They boxed up all of the leftovers for us, and my family was able to take them all home! I was so excited that I was able to eat my wedding meal the next day. They even thought to leave appetizers at the head table for us!
Lastly, Chef Roman was catering another event the night of our wedding, but still managed to stop by later in the night. He made sure we were happy, and wanted to meet our parents. It was a thoughtful touch.

ng the wedding from out of town. He answered questions and was super responsive to all of our emails. Out of all our vendors, he was the most responsive and communicative and I can't thank him enough for that. Additionally, he worked with us when one of our guests has a special diet and was able to accommodate it no problem.
Most importantly, our guests loved the food! We live in the DC area and are huge foodies, so one of the biggest things we wanted was fabulous food at our wedding. Kangaroo Kitchen did not disappoint. We had the cilantro lime shrimp, pork belly and roasted pear skewer, smoked bacon and Gouda cheese balls, and sun-dried tomato, rosemary, and cannelloni bean dip for appetizers and they were so good! The roasted vegetables, and roasted sweet potato and freekah salad (everyone loved the salad and raved about it after) were fabulous! And then the mains we chose of the beef brisket with apricot rice and the Chicken saltimbocca with the celery root mashed potatoes were both awesome! We decide last minute to add their Amaretto chocolate coconut balls (I could have ate a plate full!), which was a nice way to end the meal before cake and dessert. We had so many compliments after the wedding (and still are getting them) on the food. We could not be happier!
On the day of the wedding, we had an outside ceremony and dance floor at our venue, Camp Blodgett, set up with a tent and it ended up pouring during our cocktail hour. Ashley (our lead contact on our wedding) and the Kangaroo Kitchen staff helped move tables around quickly so our band could set up inside instead. They were awesome at stepping in and helping when we had an unexpected turn in weather. And I can't thank them enough for keeping dinner and clean-up flowing smoothly despite the unexpected change in the layout last minute. My day-of coordinator said they were one of the best catering companies she has worked with. Additionally, the family style meal was perfect for our venue and I am so glad Chef Roman suggested it. With the layout getting tighter with moving dancing inside, we definitely had the extra room because we didn't have a buffet set up.
Overall, I highly recommend Chef Roman and Kangaroo Kitchen for your caterer. The staff went above and beyond for us, the food was amazing, and even with last minute changes, they made sure everything ran smoothly making it a great wedding day for us! We cannot thank them enough!

hat we wanted and adjust as needed. He even suggested a second tasting when we couldn't narrow our decisions. We looked forward to our frequent interactions and learning when new things had joined his menu!
The day of the wedding was perfect! He arrived plenty early and set-up was smooth and fast. The display was beautiful and he even brought his own decorations to spoof it up even more. When he saw us being pulled in many different directions, he asked if he could get us dessert before it was gone and set it at the head table for us- so very appreciated!!
At the wedding and since, many of our guests have just raved about the food! I can't tell you how many times we heard "the food was amazing" or "this is the best wedding food I've ever had" or "this is the best catered food I've ever had." Our next wish is that we can attend a wedding catered by Kangaroo Kitchen so that we can savor the food and go up for seconds without feeling like we needed to socialize with all of our guests instead.
I can't say enough good things about Kangaroo Kitchen! Also, with Chef Roman's no added fees, he is right on par cost-wise with even those caterers who look cheaper on paper, but then charge additional service fees and taxes. Do the math and go with the better food- you won't be disappointed!!

Kangaroo Kitchen and Catering was all around a very great experience! The tastings, the service and the quality of the food were all exceptional. Chef Roman and his team prepared an outstanding selection of food for our wedding on June 2, 2018....
Many of our guests commented on the food being outstanding and the best wedding food that they'd had. Roman was very flexible and creative and very willing to help create a menu that met all of our wants and expectations. I will certainly use Roman and his team for any large catering events in the future! 10/10 experience!

r wedding day without a single hitch. The food speaks for itself and it was nothing short of amazing. We had so many people compliment us on having the best wedding food they have ever had! It is creative, beautiful, and most of all, delicious! From our cocktail hour all the way to the end of coffee service, Roman and his staff were professional, friendly and made everything run so smoothly. Roman made a point to go over and check in with my parents and make sure that everything was to their liking- a touch that went so far with my dad. We have nothing but the best things to say and they come with our highest recommendation. You will not be disappointed if you choose to use them for any event!

Chef Roman inspired all our guests with his incredibly beautiful, colorful and unique menu. Many said it was absolutely the best wedding food they had ever had. We had a few vegans and people with extreme gluten intolerance in attendance, so we...
asked him if he could make a menu that was entirely gluten free, and everything (except the chicken of course!) vegan -- and he did so with ease. Chef Roman takes great pride in his work, and rightly so: he does not cut corners and insists on delivering the very best. His presentation of the food on the buffet tables really blew us away -- above and beyond what we had imagined. Thank you Roman, for working with us and our needs and serving the best wedding feast our guests had ever experienced!

ppreciated how open he was to accommodating different dietary restrictions. My brother is allergic to dairy, and he readily swapped some ingredients out to make more menu options dairy-free. He also suggested items and twists on his dishes to fit our fall inspired theme. Our wedding guests are still raving about how delicious and unique the meal was. At the reception, Roman and his team had a small plate of each of our appetizers awaiting my husband and I at our seats. It was such a kind (and yummy!) gesture.

e compliments about our wedding, the most received by far was "the food was the best we've ever had at a wedding." So many of our guests asked who our caterer was and wanted Roman's contact information. The appetizers, salads, and main courses were perfect. In a world where wedding food has become dull and predictable, Roman and his staff at Kangaroo Kitchen provide a delicious change of pace turning the catering world on its head by offering dishes that are creative and fresh. Our guests raved about all of the dishes ranging from the Vietnamese pulled pork served with daikon and red cabbage relish with siracha aioli, to the salmon served over Moroccan couscous with tomato, cucumber, capers candied walnut and raisins. The food was also beautifully presented, especially the assorted roasted and grilled vegetable platter with roasted beet aioli.
Chef Roman met with us prior to our wedding and allowed us to taste all of the dishes prior to signing the contract.
We know that when our families think of our wedding day 10 years from now, they will still be raving about the food.
Book Kangaroo Kitchen for your wedding and you will not be disappointed; they are truly a West Michigan treasure.

My groom and I are foodies through and through and always knew food would be the one thing at our wedding we would spend whatever it took on. To our surprise, we found the most delicious food, and it happened to be in our price range.
man is not only a talented chef, but was a wonderful, professional, friendly, person to work with.
Our tasting was done privately in their store and the atmosphere was almost like a date night. It really made us enjoy the food even more. Afterwards we all sat and talked and hashed out a terrific menu. BY the time our wedding rolled around, a few things were no longer on the menu, but Roman recreated them for us anyway.
He was willing to work with us up until a few days prior to the wedding to add coffee service, more or less plates, etc.
Day of, we had 160 guests work through 2 buffet lines in less than 30 minutes. All the food was fresh, hot, beautifully prepared and plated. Every guest told us it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding, better than most restaurants! If that's not a compliment, I don't know what is.
Kangaroo Kitchen was one of the best wedding choices we made. Hands down.

Also, I asked the chef to make some menu changes due to some family allergy issues and he did so easily, but then on the day of the wedding we realized he included both our original item as well as our allergy free replacement item at no extra charge! Class act! Dinner buffet service was a breeze, they cut our cakes for us and we had a delicious meal without a single snag. Thanks Chef Roman and staff!

My husband and I definitely wanted our food to be something everyone would remember - and Kangaroo Kitchen exceeded our expectations! My husband and I had been to 12 weddings throughout the year, and knew we wanted something different from the ...
traditional plated wedding food. We had the idea to have a "Breakfast for Dinner" theme - On our first date, my husband and I actually met for brunch, and breakfast is also something we love making together! When we met with Roman, the owner of Kangaroo Kitchen, he loved our idea and started brainstorming all of these great breakfast options we could have.
On our wedding day, our guests were blown away by the food. They were impressed by the uniqueness of the foods used together, especially the Stuffed French Toast!
We were very thankful Roman was able to take our idea and turn our dinner in to something we, and our guests, will always remember and crave!
