Quality Assurance

All catering is prepared on the day of your celebration. We use fresh produce, sourced locally whenever possible, and all preparation is completed in a fully compliant commercial kitchen and under the guidance of qualified chefs.

To ensure food safety, all our catering is delivered to your selected location in one of our commercial vans by a staff member.

We also employ an events manager to oversee all systems and processes involved in ensuring timely delivery of our catering, and to liaise directly with our customers before, during, and after your celebration, as required.

Service Personnel

For customers who want a completely hands-free catering service, we can provide experienced and mature food service staff and beverage service staff, to set up, serve, and clean up afterwards.

Private Testimonials

The engagement party was ‘Simply Sensational’. A beautiful evening, delish food, great speeches and an inspiring group of young adults. Thank you for your help in making the night memorable. Your gorgeous food was enjoyed by all – I could have ordered double the quantity of pizzas! Kind regards and we look forward to working with you again.

Simply Sensational helped make my mother’s 90th birthday even more special. Very professional, quick to reply to questions, and on the day the food was wonderful. Staff were fantastic.


The name says it all “simply sensational”. You won’t be disappointed; the freshness of the food, the ingredients and food combinations make it sensational food. Organising it was made super easy also. Like a well-oiled machine!


The perfect name for this catering group because they were Simply Sensational. Everything promised was delivered with top quality products and service. All the staff were wonderful to work with at every stage of our function. I will use them again.


I have used Simply Sensational Catering on many occasions over a period of more than 10 years. I’ve never been tempted to try anyone else for our family catering. Simply Sensational always exceed expectations. Highly recommend.


Thank you for helping us choose the perfect menu. There was just the right amount of food and we received many compliments. Your advice re having Kate there was good. Nothing was too much trouble. Thanks for making our party great.
