What Our Clients Say

Everyone loved the food… really tasty flavours.

Iman and James supplied us with 250 Staff Lunches in October to help us celebrate Black History Month. They were extremely accommodating, friendly and helpful. They were clear, concise and patient during the whole planning process as we had to work out logistics of costs, timings and meal choices. They suggested really nice meals for us to pick from and ensures our allergens/dietary requirements were met. There was a slightly slow start to service however they pulled through and got lunches out to our staff members as quick as they could, as much so. All of our employees loved the food and gave amazing feedback. There was not one person that had anything bad to say about the food. it was a generous portion, really hot and tasty flavours. I sadly didn’t get to meet James in person due to our busy schedules, but he seems really committed with his food and to providing great service. I met Iman on the day and she was lovely! She popped out to check how we were doing and how we felt about the service/food half way through service so really showed she cared about how we felt. Myself and other employees can’t wait return to Jikoni to try out the rest of their menu and hope to use them again in future!

Right from the get go, when I spoke to James about the brief for our event, he understood everything we needed and tailored it to make sure Jikoni could accommodate. We had an event for 220+ people, and we needed to make sure we had halal and vegan options, as well as avoiding the use of major allergens and Jikoni did exactly that. 

Hot, fresh and tasty! And of course with environmentally packaging. Iman and James served the attendees of our event, and they even packed them some leftovers to take home. 

Looking forward to using Jikoni again!

Jikoni understood everything we needed.

The most delicious, innovative and fresh food.

Bookhaus hosted a launch for a book on African and Caribbean History, and in order to make it into something bigger and more community-focused than a simple book launch I wanted to find a caterer who would be able to provide suitable catering. Jikoni was top of my list. They are making some of the most delicious, innovative and fresh food in Bristol, making a wonderful variety of East African food from several countries and cultures. What they are doing is absolutely unique, and everyone I know who has tried their food raves about it. They are used to catering markets and events so I knew I could rely on them to do an efficient, professional job, and at a reasonable price. I would certainly work with them again, and I highly recommend others try them out!
