Sorry for taking so long to get back to you. It’s been go go go since we got back from our honeymoon… We still haven’t managed to get our thank-you’s out, aghh!Our day really was perfect, everything went really well and everyone got stuck in and had a great party.
The food and service was fantastic!!! Your team did a really great job, everything was delicious and there was plenty enough for everyone to eat their fill – and even leave us with some salads and cheese cake to take with us on our honeymoon J. As far as the planning went, you were wonderful to deal with. We really appreciate how professional everything was and how easy you made it for us.
Thanks again to you and your team for such great food and service and for helping to make our big day such a good one.

Lemongrass exceeded our expectations and delighted our guests. Belinda is such a professional that gave me confidence and took away the stress. I couldn’t recommend lemongass more. It turned the day into a magic experience. – Jess and Phil

It all came together perfectly, we couldn’t be happier with the food, flowers, set up and cake. We had so much positive feedback about the food, you did such a wonderful job, thank you ?? Will be in touch when we get back from our honeymoon. Tamara – Mount Surf Club
Lemongrass did a fabulous job of our wedding catering. The guests were raving for weeks after about the Filipino-kiwi cuisine we requested.. The family style of serving worked out well and was impressed they also put on special kids appetizers. Belinda and her team helped make our day a dream come true. Very professional, organized and friendly and most importantly they make good food and plenty of it!

Thanks for the email 🙂
We had a lovely honeymoon … rutting deer and all!! Returned to put the house back together and go through the millions of emails! But its great – what a magical time! A magical day it certainly was!
Aongatete Lodge, near Katikati
Choosing a rustic school camp as our wedding venue, we decided the food had to be exceptional (we love food), and it was exceptional thanks to Lemongrass! Everyone I have spoken to so far has commented on how beautiful, tasty and delicious the food was – they were not expecting that level of deliciousness and top service out in the “middle of the bush”, it was a super surprise for the guests!
The Lemongrass team were professional, discreet and very easy to work with. Belinda was very helpful during the planning process and accommodated all my changes when requested.
On the day I was blissfully unaware of all parts of the canapes/meal service (as any bride should be!)…it all went to plan (or perhaps a little early)! The bridal party were well looked after – we were frequently asked if we needed snacks and/or glasses of bubbles! Perfect 🙂
I realise the tables in the dining room needed rearranging to fit the buffet in properly and this was obviously done with minimal hassle (well if there was a major issue I didn’t know about it!!) so I was pleased that this was just done and sorted with ease. In the planning process it was a challenge for me to visualise the venue and work out the best requirements for the caterers so I was relieved that it could all be worked out in the end with the help of our “wedding planner”!
The dining room was hot – sooooo hot, and the suggestion from Belinda (I think?) was to move the party outside after main course and let the guests get some fresh air. Then follow with the rest of the speeches / formalities outside. This gave the Lemongrass team a great chance to clear away the dishes and set up the dessert buffet. Dessert was then a casual process – guests wandered back into the dining room to help themselves and either ate back at their tables, or took the dessert outside in the cool. It was wonderful for Lemongrass to make this suggestion, and that they were flexible with the arrangements.
All in all it was fabulous!
The only thing we regret was not asking for more salmon! And we both could’ve (should’ve) eaten more! But I guess you get that comment from many brides & grooms!
Oh – and also… some lovely helpful guest packaged up the leftovers (the ones we didn’t eat for breaky) to give out to the families – but they forgot about us the Bride and Groom, only the most important guests! So we missed out on the leftovers too! Hopefully we’ll go to a wedding catered by Lemongrass in the future – as guests – so we can really enjoy the food!
I’ll send through some photos in the morning.
Cheers,Claire & Dean

Keryn and I just wanted to specially thank you and your team for catering our wedding. The food was perfect and every guest we spoke to raved about how good the food was. The canapes that were being served were named by the guests as “treats” and we thought the ham was especially good.
You really helped make our special day that much better and stress free.

Belinda – the catering was amazing- the guests all sang your praises. You had to deal with a diverse range of ‘dietary requirements’ and all were happy and full – including the meat eaters. Many thanks for your efforts. Sarndra Check /MOB

Feedback was excellent, I couldn’t take much in on the day so I definitely asked around afterwards and everyone was raving!!!!! I’m not just saying that, everyone was very impressed with your service, your food and your whole approach. I was so thankful. I had a brilliant day, despite being exhausted and totally sleep deprived! Now I’m finally settling into preparing for baby – 12 weeks to go! 🙂
If you want to use a review from us, here is my more official review/feedback: “Belinda and her team were completely supportive and professional through all stages of planning the event and the event itself. The food was delicious, service as excellent, quantity was more than enough. My guests and my husband and I were more than pleased and we would recommend Belinda and Lemongrass Catering to any potential bride (or anyone having a catered event for that matter).”

Thank you so much for the wonderful food and all your hard work on Saturday – you and Louise, along with the girls, really helped make the day a great success. Everyone loved the food and it was just what I wanted – I just wish I’d gotten to eat a little more of it!
Thanks Lemongrass team for making our wedding exactly what we wanted; relaxed atmosphere, great food. We’ve had heaps of positive feedback from our guests about the quality of the food and professionalism of your staff.
