Hi, I think i came across some recomendation on ya lai siang's food that's y I ordered. But i dun know yls not the same as ya lai siang. Anyway based on the website the recommender have given me, it shows ya lai siang not not yls.
And i have made a small studies on the two caterer.
yls provided 8 dishes(include drinks)
ye lai siang proivde 8 dish plus 1 drink ..
I just had my wedding last month, and used YLS for my AD lunch buffet. I took 11 dishes. Relatives and friends commended food very delicious and portion is more than enough, especially the curry chicken.
I have tried yeh lai siang for my ROM chalet. Was very disappointed with them cos the food was not enuff..
We order for 70 persons but the food that came look like for 30 persons only.
and with an hr all the trays are empty..
A lot of my guests did not had their fills. And dun have to mention those who came in later.
Though we do cater for bbq, but the bbq food was not fast eunff to cater to my customer's stomach...
I was so pai sai abt the food potion.
We called yeh lai siang up and they told us they prepare the food by weighing the quantity and not preparing for 70 ppl share.
I was think the weighing machine must be spoiled that day. Cos one look at the food bing delievered that day, no one would have believe that is for 70 persons..
I should have take some photos of the food and show it here...:<
Well its over anyway..
my Future MIL said its good to eat all the food up.. No left overs is a good sign. so we din persist with them.
But i jus angry at the fact that I order more than enuff but then the quantity is so disappointing.. Make me so pai sei..
That night I dun even know how to talk to my guests cos i can ask them enuff to eat or eat more.. cos practically there's nothing to eat...
Imagine cater for 70 ppl, but then all the dishes come in one tray only.. and each tray is not even fill to the top.
I told my fren i cater to 70 ppl, they dun even believe me..
Is it that i have to request for 2 sets of 30 persons menu then they willingly to give the correct quantity???
All my family members did not get to eat anything from the buffet.
However, no doubt the food is ok.. cos some of my friends who had managed to eat their yam paste and you tiao stuffed with err.. squid(forget already) said its v nice.. I din get to taste any..:<
I am intending to hold a ROM chalet, can u share with me ur experience in decorsting the plae, games etc.Need advice thanks a lot.U can pm me or email me at [email protected]
Can u tell me how much u spend roughly too?
i've tried YSL during my col hse warming last mth. The food was gd n value for money.
But the portion was really kind of small. Serious, i really mean small. Me n most of our col hv the huh??? look when we open the cover of the dishes(we were the 1st to start eating)... though the rice n bee hoon items is enough for at least 40 pax, but the other dishes was like enough for 20 pax only(my col ordered for 30 pax)....
The portion really that small ha?? Ai yo, I'm also still considering this caterer leh.. But don know how many to order leh.. Heard that, we shldn't order the exact no. of ppl. How much shld I order?? Anyone can advise?? the $10 per pax is without the GST ha??
I juz ordered lunch buffet from YLS on my wedding day tea ceremony (2 weeks ago) for 30 pax. On contrast wif Yukie's experience, the portion given to me was like 50 pax! There were quite an amt for leftover and my relatives requested to take away some of the food coz they were simply delicious! Except for the yum paste, it was finished up and everyone was singing praises of it!
I suppose the thumb of rule is to order less 10% of num of attendees. Shld be fine.
Another best point to note from YLS is tat there is no GST and transport cost! Overall my experience wif YLS is fantastic! Thumb up!!!!
As for YSL, I think it depends on what sort of food u order.
If u are ordering their roasted chicken, butter prawns, vegetable, mutton/chicken curry...their 30 pax is more than enough to feed 50 pax!
I used them many times before and it's pretty good price.
The other caterer that u can use is neogarden (20% if got someone's birthday is 7 days before/after - u need to check if they have tis offer. Or they have weekday menu offer). Thought the menu is limited, but the food is really good. Yesterday company ordered for 35 pax, enough to feed 40-45 pax. Food is extremely good (standard wise). Alittle more expensive but food quality is excellent to my standard.
I took the $10/pax. For my order, I tried to avoid similar meat/vege that would be served at my evening banquet. The dishes i took were the Fried Bee Hoon, Fried Pineapple Rice, Sliced Fish w/ Dried Chilli, Curry Chicken, Braised Bean Curd,Pork w/ Plum Sauce Salad Prawn, Deep Fried Spring Roll, Spinach and Yam Paste.
My lesson learnt was no need to order both Fried Bee Hoon and Fried Pineapple Rice. Either one will do. I was so shocked by their giant portion! As I had some vegetarians guests, I sacrifice some "meat" items for vege dishes like spring roll & bee hoon. But in the end, they did not dare to touch them coz not certified 100% meat oil free. Sigh~ Also to share was i didnt really like their salad prawn. I chose this because this was the only prawn dish that guests no need to shell the prawns. But not that nice leh.
Hi Icebaby, do you mean every dish will be served in individual tray? eg finger food for 30 pax can be quite few, can only filled half a tray, then they will combined with another item in one tray with a divider in the middle. Is that correct?
wanna ask.. you mentioned this "There were quite an amt for leftover and my relatives requested to take away some of the food coz they were simply delicious! Except for the yum paste, it was finished up and everyone was singing praises of it! "... erm is the yam paste not nice?
you all order online (by filling in the form), then they will call you back to confirm your order?
who did you liaise with?
also, wat is the duration of the buffet?
as in roughly they will come to collect the things how many hours later?
oh if it's less than 55 pax buffet, they will put 2 dishes on 1 tray?
hehe coz i intend to order from YLS for my house warming next month, so need to find out more =)
thks for helping!
I had a catering buffet with this Hxxxe Of Catxxxxx which i had found in the website. I had a great disappointment in them. On my weddin day, we ordered the buffet and they agreed to del at 12pm. However on the actual day, the buffet was del ard 1.30pm, they didnt even bother to call n apologised and didnt bother to ans our calls. When we told them tat most of the guests had already left and demand for an explanation, they started to gv stupid excuses and agreed to deduct $100. After a few days, they called us, insisted that we shld gv the full amount and mentioned that they didnt said anythin abt the reduction of price. They went to sue us for not paying and claimed that we had ordered 3 time from them and didnt pay at all. This is all rubbish...I really need to warn every1 here who intend to book for the catering not to approach this co. It really spoilt my wedding...
hi snowpooher, i ordered from YLS last mth... their curry chicken is very good... n they are quite prompt n professional in their service... they called me the day before to confirm delivery time and collected the barang barang without any hitches (cos i din get any complain from my mgt)...
I just order YLS yesterday for buffer lunch. We are celebrate house warming. I order for 40people. my guest is around 50pp include kid. (I count 2 kid as 1 adult). i have some leave over food. ç‰›æ²¹é²œè™¾(Deep Fried Butter) and çº¢çƒ§è±†è…(Braised Bean Curd) both are the the worse. both of this have a lot of leave over. others than that all are quite nice. A lot of pp said èŠ‹æ³¥æ¤°æµ† Yam Paste w/ Coconut milk is very nice. but I never try bf bcos too busy for that afternoon. ç‚¸å°ç¬¼åŒ… Deep Fried Xiao Long Pau also quite nice. I order æ‰£è‚‰é¦’å¤´(Braise Pork w/Bun) i like it also. look and taste good. My wedding ceremony on last year August. we order neo garden for lunch buffer. a lot of friend said the food is nice. yesterday one of my guess said YLS is better than neo garden. but I feel should not compare bcos is different type of dishes...the food that we order frm neo garden one is more western type of food and YLS one is more asian food. I like neo garden service. they very proffesional when we order the food. the person-in-charge always give in comment and advise.
I ordered my ROM buffet with YSL also.
My relatives and friends all said the food is nice....I ordered for 30pax and have no idea how many turn-out that day, i think more than 40 including kids. i only ordered the fried noodles (mee goreng) and cook some rice myself for the kids, no fried rice. my hubby friends stayed late and clear all food for us
my comment : good food, good price, worth it!!
will be ordering from them again for my AD lunch.
