We had an afternoon tea for my little son’s christening for adults and children and it was wonderful. Chef Matei Baran’s food / work-ethic was fantastic; all our little and big guests really enjoyed the sandwiches, wraps, scones and desserts which were beautifully presented. Thank you very much, we will definitely ask you to cater again in the future and entirely recommend you and your delicious food!

It was an amazing experience having Matei come and cook for us on my 50th birthday. The food was delicious and well presented. Matei was friendly and entertaining with the kids! Matei came prepared with all the ingredients, cooked, served up, cleared up and washed up! Such a treat for everyone! Excellent value and highly recommended!

Matei catered for a big birthday festival. He communicated throughout the planning stage, coming to the house to meet us, really discussing what it was we'd like on the menu, taking into account any special dietary requirements. On the day itself, Matei and his team arrived early to prepare - everything went really smoothly! We chose to have a BBQ. There was a huge range of food, and everyone loved it! I can't speak highly enough - Matei helped to arrange the perfect day.

I cannot speak highly enough of the service provided by Matei Baran. From first to last visit he takes the stress out of event catering.
The food was excellent and guests left with a lasting impression of taste and quality, many regretting that natural limitations would not allow them to eat more.
I am so pleased to have discovered Matei and would recommend his catering services without hesitation.
Thank you Matei.

Absolutely delicious street BBQ food. Not just your average burgers. Everyone at party was raving about the food!
Very individualised service, and catered for my requests without hesitation. Matei added his personal touch and I felt I received great value for my money.
