Corporate Testimonials

Hi Belinda
Thanks for your email. I was planning to get back to you earlier today but after taking a recovery day yesterday, today has been quite full on.

All the feed back I have received has been totally positive relative to the catering with not one single complaint but plenty of praise for the meals offered up. The vegetarian people were most impressed as to how well they had been catered for.

Everybody loved the Masterchef promotion and once it and the Bar B Que were over many of us partied up for an hour or two.

All round the conference was a great success with the venue and accomodation impressing everybody present.

So thanks Belinda for your contribution towards a great weekend. I will have no hesitation in recommending your catering services and food quality to anyone who asks. I will be putting your account through for payment tomorrow and it should be sitting in your account by tomorrow night.

 With Best Wishes
Trevor Craig  |  Business Development Manager

We really appreciate you looking after us.

Thank you so much for your hardwork and effort last week for my 2 day meeting. The food was delicious, the service was perfect and I can not fault one thing at all !!  I feel like you take real pride in your work which is reflected in the quality of the food and service you provided.

You and your team, the lovely Lilee and I can’t remember the gents name are awesome ! You really did exceed my expectations and for that I will be forever grateful !

I am sure they will be in for a treat, the food you provide is great, certainly the best corporate catering I have had!

Just wanted to thank you for another sensational dinner!  You had us with the cheesy ‘no calorie’ dip and crostini, and the main and dessert were just as scrumptious! (Loved the gold sparkles on the dessert, and Nik’s face was pure bliss when he took his first mouthful – I wish I’d had a camera!) We all ate way to much, and could hardly move by the end of dessert, but it was hard to stop with it all tasting so so good.

Thank you again for another amazing dinner,
Jandhe, Chairperson Board of Trustee, Welcome Bay School.
Just had another lady ring from jersey boys, who said the food was absolutely first class !!!

Hi Belinda, I need to say a HUGE THANK YOU for the wonderful food and service you for our launch last night. The food was fantastic and was so well received…I just had to let you know – many asked who was the caterer and we were able to hand them your card; so I hope you get some business from this event as well. Once again thank you. I know today was a busy day for you so didn’t call but wanted to acknowledge your efforts:) Sue     Sue Dewes Tranquillo Beauty Clinic


Hi Belinda

Thank you for the lovely cupcakes. We forgot to take a photo when the table was first laid, but it looked great with all the bits and pieces on the table. The staff loved them, and many people were asking where we got them from and looking at the flyers you left which I put on the table. Someone talked to me about their husband needing client gifts for marketing so that was positive.

Thanks again,

Lynne / Welcome Bay Law-


I have had great feedback for the catering you did for us a at the polytechnic, would you be able to suggest a couple of menu’s for our morning tea next week?

Definitely need the Prawn one. But would also like a sweet one.

Many, many thanks.  It was just lovely.  We did have a lot of cake left so I guess when people are drinking they don’t want cake!! (Although I can certainly recommend your chocolate cake!) My friend Jenny had a great love affair with the caramel.  However, with our Open Day today, I’m sure what is left  will get eaten.

Thanks again. I did pass your business cards.



Hi Belinda!

Everything I have heard has been great! Everyone seemed very impressed!

Thanks so much, see you tomorrow!

Hi Belinda

Thanks so much for your efforts last week – the food went down very very well and the cupcakes looked fabulous.  🙂

Very much appreciated your efforts.

Many thanks,

Kylie Morgan, Personal Assistant,  Tauranga art gallery

The trip was great and they raved about your food.  The ginger crunch was perfect, each time I felt a bit sick the ginger took it away.  I notice a few others ate it too when I told them it took sea sickness away!

Hello Belinda
Regrettably I did not make the function on Saturday but the reports back are of amazing food and very generous quantities so thanks so very much for everything. There were some salads left over and so one of our ladies took them home but had to take them in your bowls and so I have 3 bowls here at work as she returned them this morning. Everything else of yours will still be at Waimarino.

Thanks so much once again – you will certainly be recommended to others ?

Thanks and Regards


The food was amazing and the quantity was just right, the prawns and beef with horse radish were a particular hit.
Everyone enjoyed the rest of the canapés.

Thanks for all your help, we’ll be sure to use you again.

Just wanted to say thanks for your fab catering for our small function last night.I’ve had some good feedback from our team here too (without me asking them first!), they really enjoyed the canapés.  Apparently the bell peppers were fab!

On  two different occasions we have asked Belinda to cater to our office.  Iam happy to type a recommendation to her catering standards. Belinda has catered  for an Asian Theme and a morning tea shout for our office. The food is extremely tasty.  Belinda definitely has a flair with food and manages to combine interesting ingredients.  The presentation is  most appealing and Belinda offer a great range of food options on her menu.  Her service is outstanding.  Very happy to recommend Lemongrass Catering Company.KPMG, Tauranga

We discovered Lemongrass Catering via  Internet whilst searching for a caterer.  The website was concise and informative.  We phoned Belinda and at short notice she took our order for after 5s food, which was delivered on time, beautifully set out and very tasty.  Attendees at the gathering were very impressed, by the variety, the convenient sizing and most importantly the taste.  It was a pleasant, no-fuss experience and we will be using Belinda’s expertise again.  We would have no hesitation in recommending Lemongrass and in fact have already done so to a number of people.St Johns Ambulance
