Hi Nickole,We had a recent loss in our family which brought us down to DBN to make funeral arrangements. It was a trying and difficult time and the gentleman at the Phoenix funeral parlor recommended your catering services to me.I went to the shop near the plaza...Aunty Selvies.. and the manager on duty gave me Sue’s cell number.I contacted her and got quotes and I must say she was professional and sys\pathetic to our loss which made me feel like I was dealing with a person not a entity. I ordered the dek of mutton breyani, dhall, salad and sogi.The service I received from start to finish from Sue was applaudable and I would recommend your catering to anyone that would require your services in a heartbeat because of her professionalism and the amazing and delicious food that we received.
People catering Aunty Selive”s food at such a sad moment and after a long day... made our mourning a celebration of life rather than a loss of one. So thank you for rendering services that’s still top notch and to your team put this together. A job well done...(Thank you Sue)

Dear Mags Thank you for sponsoring table cloths and chair covers and creating a beautiful afternoon in memory of Yurav, Mrinal Diya, Lameez, Riley and Aiden. It is highly valued and most appreciated. We so honored to be on the receiving end of your generosity. CHOC KZN has the CHOC Lodge which 13 years old and the CHOC House in Pietermaritzburg which is 3 years old. This accommodation is a safe haven for any child who has cancer.Parents have access to a treatment center which is in close proximity to the lodge and House and they can be rest assured that their child is getting the best help needed. Without CHOC, children will not have the support structure to have access to treatment. This could mean children will default in their treatment. Thank you for supporting CHOC

The draping of the hall, deco, setup in fact the entire package was phenomenal. The party was a hit and everyone was ‘wowed’. A big THANK YOU to you and your team for an exceptional job well done. Everything was amazing and beautiful. Special appreciation to you for accommodating me for the last minute changes and for being so sincere and understanding. You are truly blessed and I’m sure your mum is looking down on you proudly.Words cannot express still more how thankful I am to meet you and for making my mother’s birthday a success.


Greetings, Magesh. Firstly, may I convey my personal gratitude and appreciation to you for the manner in which our negotiations and discussions were conducted to fulfill our set objective, i.e.to celebrate our Silver Jubilee on 11 November 2017. You were a thorough gentleman, very understanding, friendly and accommodating.Numerous accolades from members, guests and well-wishers were received regarding the organisation, setting, decor and the food.A high standard was set and maintained because of your guidance and assistance. We are extremely indebted to you for adding value to our function. The honouring of members who were 80 years and over with Certificates of Appreciation for their contributions went well.From the sale of our commemorative brochure we raised an amount of R4000 which was presented to the Chairman of the Gandhis Hill Reunion Committee towards the hospice cum dialysis centre to be built in Canelands on land donated. Overall, a very successful event. May we wish you and your family. with God's blessings, good health to grow and prosper and to be of service to the community.

Hi Nikcole,
I trust that you are well.A heartfelt thanks to you and your team for the outstanding work on Saturday! Everything was amazing even the finest of details, the food was delicious and you delivered to everything that you promised on, even exceeded my expectations. I am really glad that I chose you as the preferred service provider, your team works with great professionalism and certainly set the standard very high in the industry.Onto my next project, my husband is turning 30 and I want to host a party in Durban, I was wondering if you could recommend any venues where you have previously done décor and catering, something small, I am thinking 60 people, and if it has aircon that would be great. I am not too fussy as to location, but not town.Also, in terms of offering what do you offer in terms of non-vegetarian?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
