In the beginning our contact person was Cindy. She was unresponsive to all emails and I requested a different coordinator and that was Stacie. She was responsive and very helpful. We booked catering services through Furiwa but our reception was held at the Wyndam Hotel Avenue of the Arts. Pricing was reasonable compared to other caterers. Stacie was our contact person probably up until 6 months or so before the wedding and then it changed to Vivian. She was nice too but wasn’t as knowledgeable. Maybe she was new I’m not sure. Anyways we exchanged a lot of emails back and forth regarding the details of the wedding. Day of wedding came and it was a different coordinator who was there named Ann. She knew nothing of what Vivian and I emailed about and the set up was incorrect. Lights were green when they were supposed to be pink. I ordered plastic shot glasses with our names on it and Vivian and I talked and she said I could put them out since they were plastic. They were never put out. Not only that, they lost them and so 250 plastic shot cups I custom ordered was gone. The day before the wedding I dropped off all the reception items at Furiwa so they could decorate according to what we discussed. After the wedding, half of my items went missing. I had custom frames made with seating charts and 150 candles with candle holder and they never made it back to me. I assumed that as a coordinator if you receive a box with items that after the wedding you would put all those items back and give it back to me. However, after the wedding whatever someone I knew didn’t grab for me is now missing. That is hundreds of dollars of items that I could reuse. After the wedding I emailed Vivian and she said she had no idea what happened to them and neither did Ann. I then emailed Stacie and she had no idea. They said the hotel wouldn’t keep any of those items so they had no idea. So you are telling me someone threw away 150 candles, 250 shot glasses and two giant picture frames? I con

We used Furiwa to cater Chinese food for our wedding at the Hilton Waterfront Beach Resort. We worked with Stacie and she was super nice and friendly! She always made sure we had the little things taken care of and was very responsive to email. Our family and friends were impressed by the food and the service. Thanks Stacie and Furiwa!

Having amazing food on our wedding day was one of our top priorities, and choosing Furiwa as our caterer was one of the best decision we had made! Our contact person at Furiwa was Stacie Tran, and she is by far one of the most amazing vendor in this wedding industry. When my husband and I had our initial meeting with Stacie, we were immediately blown away by her years of experience, thoughtful suggestions, and quality of service. Stacie will definitely go above and beyond of what is asked of her in order for you to have your dream wedding. For us, we had our wedding at the Nixon Library, and used Furiwa as our catering service. Our family and friends cannot stop raving about how elegantly all the dishes were plated, and most importantly, how spectacular the food was. From the past around hors d'oeuvres to the sweet taro dessert, everything was simply amazing. Thank you Stacie and Furiwa for making our dream wedding come true!

I always knew that I didn't want to serve just chicken, steak, or fish at my wedding. I really like Chinese banquets but never wanted to get married in a Chinese restaurant. I went to a friend's wedding a couple years ago that was hosted at a super cool and modern venue called the Smog Shop in Culver City.............and they served Chinese food!!!!! Not just blah Chinese food, super delicious Chinese food! My mouth waters just thinking about it.

Fast forward 2 years later, we had Furiwa catered our wedding at the Crowne Plaza in Redondo Beach. Our guests continuously came up to us and told us about how impressed they were with the food! We even received emails days later complimenting the food as well. It was soooooo good!!!!!! My guests were even given to go boxes to take home.

Cindy was incredible to work with!! She was extremely accommodating and professional and made this process extremely easy for us. We highly recommend Furiwa and Cindy Nguyen. Thank you so much for making our day so memorable Cindy!!!

Cindy was a great catering manager. Always an advocate and made sure everything was in our best interest. She truly made our wedding planning much easier! She's also part of a great team and her colleagues are just as great. Vivian was our on site coordinator and was a delight to work with. Thank you Furiwa for everything!

We were blown away with Furiwa's quality of service & execution. Stacie & her team surpassed all of our expectations! They definitely went above & beyond. Can honestly say there is no one else out there that can do what they do.

Furiwa went above and beyond what I wanted for my wedding! Working in tandem with our flower vendor, Furiwa blew me away! Everything was beautiful, even more perfect then I could've imagined. They made the wedding planning process so easy and stress-free for me. Also, they really care about you! Haha. Our Furiwa coordinator brought me a private plate of food to my changing room so the groom and I could eat a little before we greeted tables. She noticed we had not had one bite to eat all night. It was really sweet that she had the groom and I in her best interest.
Food: DELICIOUS!
Servers: Very friendly and professional
Long review short, these guys and gals are awesome!

Planning a wedding was a complete struggle for me. Especially since I wanted to opt out for one but family fought me on it. But despite the stress that comes with the planning, Furiwa and my event coordinator Stacie made that huge part of my wedding a breeze. She helped me work with the hotel that I wanted and she delivered everything I asked for and more. I really appreciated her also helping with things that wasn't her responsibility. She offered great advice and recommendations to anything I needed and how I can save money which was a plus! Most brides have a fear that something may go wrong on their day and that their hard work on planning may not go right; but I have to say that I was the least bit stressed that day and I was so confident in Stacie and she proved to my husband and I that we made the right choice with her. Did I mention she saved me money too? We love her!

Cindy was our reception coordinator, and she was fantastic. She helped us plan out the reception a year in advance, and was always willing to meet with us whenever we asked. She was very responsive through e-mail, and was always able to get us the information that we needed. We had concerns about everything from parking, to table settings, to where the food was going to be cooked, and she was always able to sooth our concerns. On wedding day, she helped us to be at ease by making sure that everything ran smoothly, and it did! (Despite a few last minute concerns) We always felt that she had our best interest in mind, and that's invaluable.

The comments we got from our guests were that the food was very good, everything from the appetizer platter to the taro dessert (you have to get the taro from Furiwa). We didn't get to eat much during our own wedding (there was so much going on), but from what I ate, I really enjoyed the fish and walnut shrimp. Even when I didn't have too much of an appetite (from the stress), I still recall that the food was good, and that's saying something!

Cindy worked very well with the rest of our vendors, from the video/photo team to our band, to get everything going right and at the the right time. We had a lot going on that night - slide shows, dances, music acts, table greetings, etc. - and she made sure everything went perfectly, coordinating with the rest of our vendors. Thank you so much Cindy!

If you're looking for quality Asian Food to be served in a gorgeous venue...Furiwa is the Catering Service to choose. They have a number of preferred hotels (including 5 star hotels) that they are able to provide catering services. Stacie Tran was our contact person. She was awesome. Easy to talk to and work with, provided helpful ideas/suggestions, and very punctual. The presentation and quality of the food and how the family style dishes were served was classy and clean. No dishes were stacked and the plates were quickly changed when they were dirtied. I highly recommend Furiwa.
