Just wanted to say thank you so much for the beautiful food and the great bar staff on Friday night.
We had a fabulous time and everyone was so complimentary on how it had all been pulled together so thank you so much. You made it all so easy for me to look so organised!

Jules – March 2020

From the bottom of our hearts we want to thank you for your kindness, patience and generosity throughout the whole process of catering for our wedding.

It was a pleasure every step of the way, your customer service is next level! Thank you for making it so easy. Your help meant we were able to enjoy one of the most memorable days of our lives.

Thank you again!

Amy & Juan – Feb 2020

I just wanted to say thank you so much for the catering you did for us last week! It has been a pleasure dealing with you and the lady who dropped off the food and set it all up was awesome. The food as amazing and there was MORE than enough!! So plenty left over for the guys working the weekend which was a bonus. I’m sure the next time we need some catering you’ll be our first point of call.

Merissa – Dec 2019

Catering Catering did an amazing job at helping us pull off a traditional Thanksgiving Turkey Lunch in Auckland with a tailored menu to suit our needs. They went above and beyond to make our event spe ial and the food was absolutely beautiful! Thank you so much!

Laura (Predict HQ) – Nov 2019

Thanks so much for the wonderful lunch today – it exceeded all expectations – everyone thoroughly enjoyed the tasty feast. It really made our mid-Winter Christmas event stressless and successful.

Carmel – June 2019

Thank you for catering our daughters’ wedding on 23/2/19 for 125 guests. The food was certainly fresh & delicious and plenty of it. We had many guests comment on how good the food was. You were great o deal with from my first enquiry right up to the days leading to the event and on the night. I would not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone looking for a caterer.
Kind regards


Just a note to say the team did a wonderful job with our Christmas lunch yesterday. I have had great feedback about the food and how everyone enjoyed it so much. Your communication and organisation in getting this across the line is always appreciated. Thank you for your support around the special dietary requirements too!

Airways NZ – Dec 2018

The best experience and great service! Our wedding dinner was so delicious, we got so many compliments on how good the food was and how well the meat was cooked. Catering Catering were amazing from the start, great communication and no surprises. I would 100% recommend their services!


Monique – Dec 2018

Just wanted to say SO MUCH for the amazing food and service on Saturday, we’re still working on the leftovers which you did an amazing job of keeping all in our containers and dishes – much appreciate by a tired but very happy pregnant woman hosting a houseful of guests, and it’s stayed so fresh and delicious! You were so efficient and discreet packing in and out – I didn’t even see you go! We had a lot of nice comments about the great food from our wedding guests.

Thanks again for being so easy and taking such good care of us.

Kristen and Joe – 30 August 2018

Thanks so much Alma for all your help! The food was fantastic! Plenty of leftovers for a late night munch. All so conveniently packaged and nicely presented. And all set up by the marvellous Merv. You guys are awesome! Really makes a great night when all the hard work has been taken care of. Big high five guys!

The meals were definitely generous and I would have to say the best tasting I’ve had.

Rachael – 1 June 2018

A huge thank you for your catering on Saturday night for my milestone birthday party! The way you came in and made it all happen was wonderful! The food was delicious – everyone enjoyed it (especially the beef and gravy!) Delicious! I would not hesitate to use your company again, it was such a great evening, and you helped in its success.

Louise – 29 May 2018

I just wanted to say Thank You to you and your team for an amazing day on Saturday. The food was delicious and many commented on it. Your staff were also very accommodating under some very difficult circumstances (with the pouring rain and such a small space). Thanks again!

Ursula – 1 May 2018

Just to let you know that everyone commented and loved your beef and glazed ham. A huge amount of people (including myself) think your hot glazed ham was the best they have had in their life. Your pr mpt service to giving a quote, follow-ups and delivering the delicious roasts was excellent. Many people at the party are keen to contact you when they require catering, particularly when you serve such quality food.Many thanks!

Mary – 8 March 2018

Thank you for the wonderful barbecue. The food was delicious and we really appreciate you coming out to Shakespear Park. My mother had a fantastic birthday and everything was so easy.

Denise James – 11 Jan 2018

On behalf of our members and committee I would like to express our appreciation for the excellent service that you and your professional team have provided so far this season.

I personally have been on our committee for 16 years and over that period we have dealt with 6 caterers and I can sincerely say all feedback we’ve received about Catering Catering from members and visitors alike has only been positive.

On Saturday evenings your menu has hit the spot by providing ample variety and well priced generous servings, all are enjoying the great value. Also the catering provided for our large functions was excellent in the past, with other caterers we’ve experienced the embarrassing nightmare of running out of food, we had no fears of this with Catering Catering, again the committee only received compliments about the meals and service.

My dealings with yourself and all of your team have been cordial and helpful. The understanding of our situation and the “can do attitude ” is most appreciated and has made working with your team a pleasure.

Thanks for all you’ve done to help make our club a great place for our community to visit to spend a little time with friends and family and perhaps enjoy a couple of cold ones and a hearty meal. We are looking forward to working with you and your team again next season.

We just wanted to send a quick note to THANK YOU SO SO SO MUCH for everything that you did for us on our wedding day! I have had countless messages passed on to me about how great the food tasted,how elpful and friendly the staff were, and the efficiency and ‘extra mile’ of how things were handled. We have really enjoyed working with you to create what we needed, and have found your no worries, stress-free, can-do attitude to be really encouraging and a massive relief! I would absolutely recommend your service to anyone who needs catering. Thank you again for helping to make our day so magical 🙂

Shaun & Tiana Cotter – 3 Jan 2018

I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for the wonderful service. As per my last experience your responses and support during the order process were timely, helpful and friendly. The service on the day was outstanding. Willie and Alma were professional and friendly. With nearly 65 people here it was a bit chaotic and I was just off a flight from Europe. They managed everything from setting up to cleaning up and were almost invisible to everyone here. The food was fantastic.

Thank you so much. We will definitely book you again next time.


Just wanting to thank you and your team for providing the catering at our Anniversary Dinner – it was superb and we received plenty of praise for the meal – you made us look soooooo good!

You w ll be the “go to” company for the next one.

A huge thank you to Merv, Alma, and the team for all their hard work. With only three months to plan our wedding we were really worried about getting the details right -Merv was so flexible with every thing which made the process really smooth. We didn’t get the chance to eat much but had the best feedback from our guests! The staff on the day were also really helpful and quick with clean up which made the pack down really easy. Thanks so much guys!!

Liki & Nafiah

Merv – just a quick note to thank you for your service, it went down a treat! Next time, leave more business cards, they were snapped up quickly and people were very complimentary. The whole experience was just too easy. Thanks once again.


I just wanted to drop you a quick note to congratulate you on your fantastic service. Willie showed up yesterday and was consistently friendly and helpful. The food was delicious – everyone raved about it – and there was certainly plenty to go around. Willie cleaned up as well and even allowed me to borrow a table cloth for an extra day and then came back to pick it up. It is so rare to get such outstanding service and we would definitely use you for a similar event again in the future. Thank you so much.



I just wanted to thank you very much for the amazing job your team did on Saturday for my in laws 50th Wedding Anniversary. Everyone was delighted with the food, there was plenty left over and both of your staff were very friendly and professional. This meal was great value for money and we will have no hesitation using you again and recommending you to others.


Kelly Wilson

My thanks to you, Glenise and Alma for all your help this week – I have had nothing but compliments for all of you from start to finish from myself and the team.
We were wowed each day with delicious food, great service, everyone is a pleasure to deal with. What more can I say? We will not hesitate to book again with you.

Kind regards

Hi Alma, thanks for your catering on Saturday. It was a blast and we loved every single heartbeat minute of it. I might be biased but it was the best wedding I have ever been too also!
Like all weddings you don’t get a second chance so it is with trepidation that we selected a caterer which we hoped that would provide a meal that our guests would truly savour and enjoy and to our budget.
Well you did just that with the acid test were our guests commenting unprompted of how lovely the food and selection was.
It was great too that you were happy that we provided the finger foods at the start and finger deserts at the end as it enabled us to provide sufficient food though out the entire night (4-12) within our budget and to a high standard.
The soup (minestrone) was lovely and the meats salads/
/veges were yum
Also your personalities and great customer service were commented upon so well done. It appeared you worked in well with our serving staff (friends 2 young daughters) which again made things uncomplicated and hic-cup free.

So…well done, lovely to “meat” you and yes we thoroughly recommend your company.

Please free to use this testimonial

Kind regards, Gary and Michelle Oakes

For our wedding we didn’t want fuss and frills. Our friends and families are mostly hard working country people and “townie” professionals. We needed to find a middle line to cater for everyone’s tastes. Merv and Glenys succeeded with a menu that left everyone with a full tummy and just enough leftovers for a feast at breakfast. Their warm happy personalities and those of their staff made everyone feel welcomed and special as they mingled inconspicuously filling glasses and plates with seconds and a few third helpings. We have no hesitation in recommending these wonderful people as people who just complete your day….whatever your occasion may be. We will certainly be keeping them busy in our future plans. Thank you guys!

James & Jackie

Hi Merv Just a quick note to say thank you for your help in making our wedding a huge success. Everyone raved about how good the canopies, main meal and dessert were. It was great to get so many positive comments from our guests.

Please pass on our thanks to Alma, Linnie & Deston for do an excellent job on the night. They really made it easy for us to just relax and enjoy our wedding.

We would be happy to recommend your company and staff to anybody that is looking for a caterer in the future.

Thank you again.


Scott & Jolene Parker


Just a quick email to say a BIGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG thank you to you and your team for delivering such a great evening for us. The weather was not the best, but truly in the end was not too much of a factor when calculating everyone’s enjoyment of the delicious meal and cruise.

Your team were amazing and delivered a top quality meal to us all. Thanks once again. I will definitely be recommending you to my network of friends.

On a final note Merv, I want to express my thanks in regards to the fact that you honoured our booking which was originally for 60 – 70 people. As you know we combined our staff of 20ish with a group of our key customers. We were very disappointed when a week out 26 of them had to pull out as it clashed with their own Xmas staff party which had a last minute date change for them.

Dear Merv
Sarahs Mum here. Greg (Sarahs Dad) and I were really impressed by the friendly efficiency of the 2 staff that catered for our daughter and Joels wedding. The quality of the food was excellent and there was plenty. Guests commented how nice it all was. The lovely staff were so awesome, there was no fuss and everything happened like clockwork. They packaged up the leftovers which were really appreciated by friends and family (lots who had travelled a long way to attend the wedding) at a dinner at our place the next day. Please pass on our thanks to those two who helped make our day so special. What great assets to your business!!

Thanks again Merv – wonderful service and we will promote your business to others.

I just wanted to say a big thank you! You provided a fantastic spread for my husband’s surprise birthday party on 5 December last year and it just made his night perfect. The service was brilliant – I couldn’t fault it, and everyone at the party raved about the food. We would use you again in a heartbeat and will be recommending you to everyone. Thanks again!

Rebecca Cleghorn

Rex and I would like to thank you, Merv, and your staff for an absolutely perfect meal. The catering and menu were so scrumptious! We had nothing but compliments from all our guests for the food – as well as the entertaining – and already we have email requests for a 21st to send your name and site and approximate prices, which we have done, with sincerity and pleasure. I may have been a little out by how much our guests could eat – but with the desserts, there were no more than 8 left! It was good also of you to pack the delicious leftovers in suitable parcels, because our committee helpers snapped them all up! But I made sure I made off with the desserts. We may not wait 10 years for the next celebration!
I did get about 14 quotes, but only 3 of them – yours among them – had actually read exactly what we wanted. And yours had the excellent suggestion, which we took up, of finger desserts being served later when the helpers made the tea and coffee. Your menu also had the wide variety of choice in mains, vegetables and salads – and having the starters was also an excellent idea, as some guests would have to wait a little longer for serving. Calling us table by table also avoided the queues. Thank you, it was faultless and very happy for us and our guests.


Please accept my sincere appreciation for your contribution to our event yesterday. Your staff were efficient, professional, helpful and supportive. Their assistance to me yesterday was fabulous and I was grateful for their efforts.
The food was, of course, excellent, and thoroughly enjoyed by all. The extras such as the drink management and the extra tables for dessert meant a much less stressful day for myself.
I would also like to thank you for the amazing understanding and help that you provided when we had to postpone from our original event date – it was a stressful decision that was made so much easier by your understanding and commitment to ensuring that we got the event that we wanted in the best weather possible.
The contribution by you and your staff ensured that we had a fabulous event that was enjoyed by everyone.
Please pass on my thanks to your staff, especially Alma and also the girls who were given the task of protecting the cupcakes.

Just a quick note to let you know that the arrangements for the food on the 28th were very good, and the lady you had assisting us was quite superb. Everything went very well, the rain held off and there was plenty of space.
Thank you so much for all your hard work, excellent communication, and beautiful food! We had a lovely wedding and reception which everyone loved, and it was made so easy with your team who worked so hard and were very, very professional. I will have no hesitation in recommending your services to our friends and family. Please pass this on to your hardworking team.

Well where to start, I normally cater myself, it takes a week of prep, shopping, then juggling the domestic oven to get everything ready on time. Plus decorations, music, ice, seating, well you all now the drill.
This time I wanted to enjoy the occasion; hubby’s 50th Birthday Bash.
I took a punt and phoned Merv; it was so easy, pick your menu, pay, then forget about it. They turned up on time, so well prepared, the food was homemade, fresh, actually better than I could have done myself. The staff were ab fab, friendly and accommodating, we only had our dining area available, they made it work, and smiled the whole time.
We will definitely be using the service again, and would highly recommend the team.
We are happy to be available for referrals.

Niki & Paul Morrison

Wanted to thank you very much for the lovely Gourmet BBQ last night to celebrate our 25th anniversary and receiving an International Toro Award.
The food was divine and everyone loved it! I want to make special mention of Alma and Gerard the two team members who cooked and served at the evening. They were truly professional in their presentation of the food and everything from their arrival to departure went seamlessly.
We will definitely use you again for a future function. Thanks for making our evening such a success.


Just wanted to send you an email with my sincerest thanks for everything. Everyone adored all the food and it really made for an amazing night. And thanks for making the whole business so easy – it really helped dealing with someone so professional and approachable. Please pass on my gratitude to all your team and know I will be recommending you to the powers that be for future catering for our med events.
Anyway all the best and again thanks so much mate.

I just wanted to thank you both for providing a delicious spit roast on Saturday for our party. I have had so many comments on how nice the food was which is a credit to you. It made holding the party hassle free for us and I was impressed with how quickly you set up, how pleasant you both were to our guests and of course how lovely and clean the kitchen was when you left. We really are very satisfied with your service and would happily recommend you to anyone else looking for a delicious roast dinner.

Kelly Wilson

Just a quick note to say thanks very much for the wonderful food you provided for our wedding. It was outstanding and everyone was impressed. Well done. Thanks also to Alma who did a great job setting up serving and packing up. She was friendly and supportive to all there. Will recommend you to anyone having an event.
Thanks so much!

Brett Grant

Your company was the best choice we could have possibly made. Merv and Glen were absolutely amazing. We were so disorganised but you made the best of our chaotic state and put up everything around us. The food was absolutely delicious, we had more than enough, and Merv and Glen did everything they could to store all the leftovers. Everything was beautifully presented, tasty and impeccable service was at hand. I cannot recommend them enough!
