FAQsFrequently Asked Questions

How do I find a good Indian catering company for my event?

The best recommendation for any Indian caterer is word of mouth, it is the highest form of communication. Interrogate family and friends about Asian caterers they've used in the past. Also think about your own personal experience, events which you've been to where the food and service was excellent and try to get in touch with the hosts and get contact details for the caterers they hired.

Good Indian food is not too hard to find, there are lots of restaurants and catering firms which can produce good food but the logistics and preparation of serving to hundreds of guests are beyond their levels of expertise. There are only a handful of well-established and reputable Asian catering companies that can not only provide food of excellent quality but can also organise your event, making your day as stress free as possible.

Other sources of information about caterers are Asian magazines and the internet. The venue of your choice may also have a few recommendations, if their choices are not to your taste, they may allow a different caterer subject to terms and conditions.

Does Masala Creations provide a pure vegetarian Asian catering service?

Masala Creations provides and extensive vegetarian menu with a number of choices of vegetarian dishes. A huge proportion of the Asian community are vegetarian due to religious beliefs, therefore vegetarian cuisine is taken very seriously. There is a separate vegetarian prep area in the industrial kitchen and separate cold storage facilities for vegetarian food which is prepared for pure vegetarian events.

Our clients are invited to come and view the facilities for themselves.

What is the minimum number you cater for?

For take away services we take orders for a minimum of 20 guests for either a collection or delivery service. If you require our cooking on site services, we normally charge a flat rate for a minimum of 100 guests, however this is flexible as we try to meet each clients individual needs. Therefore we apply a surcharge for chefs to be called on site for any event which falls under the 100 guests bracket. For more information please do not hesitate to get in contact.
