A Great Success, An Eventective User from Los Angeles, California

We ordered from Shinmi for my daughter's 1st birthday (dol) last week. It was my first time trying them out, but I decided to give them a try based on the positive reviews I saw here on Yelp. I'm glad I did. Most importantly, the food was delicious. We received many compliments from our guests, all who are very familiar with Korean catering. My personal favorites were the galbi jjim (tender and yum) and the sesame leaf beef mini pancakes. I also appreciate that they were flexible with substituting several of the items with my preferences. I'm not sure if this was a mistake, but they actually gave me the dishes I wanted and the ones I wanted replaced, which my guests enjoyed! At first I wasn't sure about serving food from aluminum trays but I also didn't want to replatter everything on top of all the other details involved with executing a dol party. When I called and asked about this, they told me that they would arrange everything nicely in the aluminum trays- they really did, which I found very helpful. Caroline & her mom were really easy to work with so don't let the grandma's rude phone manners deter you from here. The price was right (we didn't negotiate it down), the food was delicious, pickup of our food was a breeze, and they presentation was nice. Overall, we are very pleased and won't hesitate ordering from them again.

Torrance, CA  
Our humble beginnings started in a 200 square foot garage with one employee; fast forward 35 years and we are in the process of building out our second 5,000 square foot kitchen, two brand new state of the art cafe's and we now employ over 90 employees. Often times, people ask us what is the driving force behind our business and passion, the answer has been the same for the last 35 years; our customers. There is nothing better than seeing a happy bride on the morning of her big day, or getting a phone call after an event from a proud father thanking us for the work we have done. As cliché as it may sound, customer satisfaction is the driving force behind our business. Our passion for food and design has evolved throughout the years and with constant changing trends, Lisa's Bon Appétit has always been on the cusp of innovation. We pride ourselves on keeping with tradition and adding a modern flare to every event, small or large. We believe in having fun with every event and always keeping in mind that once upon a time, this business was based out of a garage with one employee. We're a family based business with a serious love for event planning!
