Over the past 12 years that I have worked at Westminster Kingsway College I have used R.A.O Fish merchants as my fish supplier.
I have found them to be one of the best fish suppliers I have ever worked with. Lee and Michael are always ready to help in any situation they are reliable, trustworthy and the quality of their product is second to none. Here at the college we try to teach the students about many things with sustainability being high on the agenda RAO have been quick to help us achieve this working with us and the buying policy we set so as to ensure that our fish is sustainably sourced and that we have alternative options when there is an problem obtaining fish for any reason whether it be a quality, sourcing or sustainability issues. This flexibility and work ethic is what sets them apart from other suppliers. I would whole heartedly recommend them to anyone looking for a good reliable, quality fish supplier.
I have been buying from R.A.O for about two years and have always found them to be knowledgeable, friendly and helpful, Lee and the team provide us with all of our fresh fish and seafood and at a competitive price.
They will prepare as per specification and do their best to source from local waters whenever possible. We have tested R.A.O on several occasions and even with large numbers and short notice they have never failed to deliver.
R.A.O have been supplying fresh fish to the Inn for over 5 years. My team and I speak to Lee or other members of his team regularly to ensure we get the best fish available at a competitive price.
R.A.O have always been there to help out when problems arise. They provide excellent quality produce and consistent service that our guests and members benefit from. To me this is a service you can’t put a price on. I would recommend R.A.O to any other catering team.
We have been using R.A.O as our fish supplier for two years now and haven’t looked back, they have a wide selection of Quality fresh fish available daily and are always on call to help with seasonal produce as well as delivering on time which is everything we look for in an excellent supplier.
The RAF club is delighted to endorse the services of R.A.O fish Merchants.
Lee, Michael & team provide a first class product & an unparalleled knowledge of the fish trade, the service is friendly, helpful & professional.
The club has been using R.A.O for many years & hopefully for many more years to come.
I am a Chef Lecturer at Westminster Kingsway
College in London and have been using RAO as my main fish supplier for over 20
years when, I was teaching at our site in Battersea, and currently in Victoria.
Lee & Michael have a team of about 11, the
service that they provide is second to none, nothing is too much trouble, and
second and third deliveries are not a problem if needed. Dealing with them is a
real pleasure as they are extremely knowledgeable and resourceful and will go
out of their way to provide top quality fish and shellfish, sourcing fish
directly from Scotland when something I specifically need for our restaurants in
college may be unavailable or in short supply at Billingsgate.
As a college specialising in teaching chefs from the age of 16-60 new to the profession and experienced chefs, our needs differ from other establishments, for instance, whenever I need a selection of exotic fish for a lesson, they will go out of their way to source attractive and unusual fish providing us with relevant information about the species to pass on to our students. They welcome us and our students to visit their premises and see the team at work and then take the students on a tour of the market sharing with them their knowledge of fish and shellfish, with particular emphasis on sustainability, which is a subject that is most important to us as chefs and RAO as suppliers I would without hesitation, recommend RAO to any establishment who have a need for top quality fish and shellfish and expect good customer service.
