Dear all,

Has anyone tried good buffet catering? I know of one called "Fu Kwee", had used them for many occasions. However we noticed that their food standard had dropped. Anyone has good recommendations. I need to get a good buffet for my guests on my wedding day reception.

How many guests do you intend to invite and do you need the caterer to provide only food or other deco as well? I know of one traditional buffet caterer who provides food only but my relatives and I quite like their food.

You can try Jia Mei Catering, they are well-know for good food. I do not have their contact number but you can check withthe singtel operator, just dial 100. Ask for Jia Mei Ctaering & duck??? I think... good luck & have fun tucking in.... bY the way what's the occasion for the catering? I used select for my ROM catering buffet quite good, especially the cakes & pastry but avoid the prawn fritters not very nice. Hoep all these info helps!

Jia Mei Catering is good. I used them for my buffet lunch on my actual wedding day for relatives at my house. They love the food! I think I got its contact from SingaporeBrides directory too!

I used them for Tingkat Dinner once. I felt that the tingkat dinner was revolting. Unforgettably bad. We had to feed most of the month's food to the dogs. Even the dogs didn't like it. Considering how greedy they were.

Haven't tried their buffet lunch. From the broucher set up seems really good. But after trying the Tingkat dinner which too look damn good on broucher I didn't want to take the risk on their lunch buffet for my wedding

Hi,

You can try Happy Village Catering. Call Francis Chang at HP-96266233 PGR-95075179.Very good service and menus, especially the "Curry Niang Dou Fu" and "Barbeque Sotong".

Recommended by Nancy from Paya Lebar. He will know.

Hi ppl,

Try Lavish Catering. They are really good. Their dishes is less common, not like the boring menu.
I used them for my ROM buffet.

The person-in-charge is Alfred.

Hi Karen,
Tingkat Dinner is you pay $180 per month and they provide dinner for 20 days. 2 Dish 1 soup and rice will be placed outside your house everyday (Mon-Fri) That's Tingkat dinner, For when you're too busy too cook, too lazy to go downstairs. They always put broucher at our doorsteps. Tot it was a great idea at first. But after tasting the food. Not so great an idea. Infact I tried 2 caterers. The otherone is Kwang something. Both just as bad.

Hi Jong,
You can cater lunch if your mum is having alot of friends and relative over. Cos they will need to eat too. But if most of the ppl going over are the helpers and all you can stick with a tea reception cos they would have eaten at your hubby's place already. However, some caterers do provide quite a heavy Tea reception. With noodles, curry and snacks. That way you don't really need Lunch. I got my catering from CDCS. Tea Reception at $8.00 per head for my church. Everything was tasty except for the Jwee Keuh. Chai poh very sweet. But when you pay them that day make sure you keep the invoice well cos 6 months down the road they called me to say that I haven't pay and I had already threw that invoice away. That was so scary. But eventually they called to tell me that the driver had taken the money. Thank goodness. Hey try CJS. I like their food. Their durian/icecream puff YUMILICIOUS. Not really icecream. But like custard with fresh cream. When you freeze it taste like icecream. I love it. Their snacks very nice. : P~~~~~~~

Hi Monica,

What's CJS, do they have a website? How is CDCS? I'm thinking of using them for my tea reception at church and lunch reception at my mom's house. How's the rest of their food stuff apart from the chwee kuey?
 

monica

New Member
Snoopy,
Very good spread for $8.00. 9 - 10 items I think
Other then Chwee Kuey the rest were good.

CJS no website. Ask Angie, she using it for her wedding this weekend. Maybe can get feed back from her. I love it.

Hi Sweetie,

Hi Karen

Lavish handles more corporate account but wouldn't mind doing reception i think. They might be slightly more pricy... like $10++ per head. I had an offer for my ROM reception coz I know the ppl there personally. They served tasty stuff like dumplings, mussels (altho' i dun take, but my friends said they were nice), and mee siam (taste diff from the usual ones) etc etc. Sorry, I can't quite remember but u can always call them and request for the menu. If you r interested, i can try to dig up the menu at my ROM and email to you.
Let me know?

hi snoopy,
Sorry for replying you so late. I just saw your posting. I guess it is abit too late. However, I can post the feedback of the food. The feedback from my friends and relatives that the food was very good. And the portion was quite alot. My friends said they took second helpings. So general, it is a good choice, I think you can ask chinleng for his feedback on the food, he was there.

Their wedding tea buffet starts from 8 dollars, for 12 items. I took the 9 dollars one which had 14 items. Their lunch buffet starts from 10 or 11 i think.

snoopy,
I check cjs menus against cdcs and select. But cjs menu was the best. That is y i took cjs. For 8 dollars, the rest seem to give less items or poorer quality items than cjs.

Before i forget, the 12 items in the 8 dollars menu is 10 food items + coffee/tea and punch

CL,

Can you give some feedback on the food since you were there? What items were available for the tea reception? Do you know the contact number for CJS? Is that their company name, CJS? Would I be able to check with the operator for CJS' contact number? Appreciate your kind response.

Hi,
I had used Lye Heng Catering for buffet lunch last week for my wedding. All my relatives find the food good..and the portion is quite big.
They are punctual too. Price starts from $10/pax for 9 dishes. large selection of food.

My wedding was 3 weeks ago, and my caterers were Guan Hoe Soon Restaurant Tel: 344 2761 and Monte Cristo Catering & Cafeteria Services Tel: 282 8680 (they catered for 50 Muslim). Guan Hoe Soon got excellent reviews, and it's very different from normal buffets. we had a buffet dinner... Monte Cristo is excellent too.....But my favourite is still Guan Hoe Soon. We got them for our engagement last year, our tea ceremony and our church reception.....highly recommend!!!

Hi Observer,

My parent catered fm Lye Heng years ago for house warming party. Their food were nice and the portions were reasonably big. However, we find ther noodles insufficient, so u have to remind them to give u more noodle. They dun charge for the xtra noodles. Their yam paste is yummy.

Alternatively, u may want to consider YLS Catering (www.ylscatering.com). I catered from them for my wedding and their food was good and unique. Their price is very reasonable $10 for 10 dishes + 1 drink and they dun charge for transport.

Hi all,

Am doing survey for buffet catering for my wedding ..Pls advice on the caterers available.
From the feedback, seems like Lavish catering and CJS are not bad...Has anyone use their service recently? Or any other good and cheap one? Thanks!
