**I cannot offer enough praise for the fantasic job you did in catering for my mum's 70th bithdaydinner party last Saturday. Your suggestions and ideas for the menu were fantastic, your perfect mix of friendliness and professionalism on the night was spot on, the food was out of this world and the kitchen was left looking immaculate. You made us feel very special and all the adults and children had a wonderful evening - thank you so much for being part of an unforgettable evening. I would recommend you in a heartbeat to anybody who was looking for a catering company who can provise an outstanding plate of food with wonderfully personal touch.

**We just wanted to thank you again for all your hard work on our wedding day. Not only was the food outstanding (as we knew it would be!) but the service you provided was so organised, efficient and calm. Everyone had a brilliant time, especialy D and I (we agreed it was our best day, ever!) and we can't thank you enough for that! The feedback from our guests was brilliant too, everyone loved the food, and they certainly enjoyed the bar! Please pass on our thanks to the whole team and thank them too for making it such a perfect , special day for us.

I must also thank you for clearing so much for us and leaving everything totally spotless. It certainly made calearing out Sunday much easier to bear, and I know the venue owner was very appreciative and impressed too.

** I found TASTE by chance online and am so glad I did! I had reservations at first as I wasn't sure what we would end up with but I shouldn't have worried - from my initial enquiry they were profesional, helpful and accomodated all our needs - nothing was too much bother, and most importantly, the food and service was amazing !!  The canapes, lamb, and local cheese were particular favourites. It was a real treat to have private chefs cooking for our special evening.

I would highly recomend Tim and Sarah's catering services they really delivered on all levels - friendly, profesional, great food and they even cleaned up ( properly ) after themselves. They are passionate about their business which shows in their food and profesionalism. Thank you for a wonderful evening and I hope your business continues to grow.

**Thank you so much for making my Dad's 70th birthday meal so special for us all! The food was amazing and a far higher standard both in taste and presentation than we would have got at a restaurant, especially because the menu was tailored exactly according to my Dad's favourite foods! You made the whole experience feel really special and catered for our every need, as well as providing a special meal for the children. My dad said it was the best birthday he has ever had! I would HIGHLY recommend TASTE dining company to everyone!

**The phrase "Above and Beyond" is banded about a lot these days but it definitely appiles to TASTE Dining.We had 9 different suppliers on our Wedding day (who were all lovely!) but it was Tim and Sarah who, without a doubt, made our day the success it was.

Right from the first meeting we hit it off as they are both so friendly and open to new ideas. Not only did they devise a brand new menu for us which was different from their usual style but when we asked for a few unconventional things they took it perfectly in their stride. Many of the requests undoubtedly meant more work for TASTE but this was never implied at any stage and all requests were met with a friendly smile and a "can do" attitude.

We had a very DIY wedding with many aspects throughout the day and it was such a relief to know that we could just hand over the whole First Drinks, Wedding Breakfast and Cake Serving part of the day to TASTE and know that not only would it be carried out professionally but also to the highest standard with every minute detail double checked.

The tables were set up and dressed exactly as we had imagined in our head and the food was absolutely delicious. So many guests commented not only on the very high quality but also the quantity. Everyone was stuffed but didn't want to stop eating - ourselves included! One of our guests is a Head Chef and a bit of a piccalilli connoisseur and he made a point of approaching us to comment on how much he enjoyed the food...and to give the piccalilli a big thumbs up!

Tim and Sarah and their team of friendly smiling staff also tidied and bagged everything into a neat pile before they left so that we could easily pick it up the next day. A godsend when we only had a short space of time to clear the venue the following day.

In short, we feel blessed to have found TASTE Dining as they were the perfect company for our wedding and exceeded our expectations at every turn. Their standard of service and food is outstanding and their communication and organisation is excellent. I feel a bit upset now that I won't be chatting to them by email anymore as they became like friends to us.

** I just wanted to say thank you so much to both of you. The food and service was amazing and far exceed our expectations! We really enjoyed it, and you were both fantastic, unobtrusive and so flexible with our requests. You really did help create an amazing night and everyone was very impressed with your service. We want to eat like that every night now, it's a shame you aren't based close to us in Kent :)!!
We left cards in the venue and I will definitely recommend you wherever possible.
