    We had our son’s wedding reception on July 07, 2019 catered by Pelican

    Pelican Catering made our son Anandh and Daughter in law Abirah”s wedding reception at Grand Cinnamon event so much memorable than we could have expected. They provided high quality food and service for the event. The starters and the main four course meal was so delicious every guest who attended the occasion commented how good it was. We had guests all the way from Australia, England and many parts of USA. The set up team took extra time to ensure the seating arrangements were done that every guest’s food preference was handled correctly.
    Kumar and his team were amazing we will use Pelican Catering in our future functions.

    Disappointed with the service Pelican provided.
    Dishes were dirty food stain stuck on plate.
    Feedback from owner and sales team unresponsive.

    Very unprofessional service.
    Would not recommend Pelican to anyone.
    There are other catering companies out there that actually care about there client.
    Shop around.

    Inspect the facility where the food is prepared.
    Pelicans kitchen is filthy should be shut down.
