So, you are finally having a party! Other than choosing your wardrobe for the big day, you’ll also have to make other crucial decisions, such as hiring an efficient caterer. Finding a catering company in London is no problem, as there are hundreds of caterers to choose from. This includes Asian caterers as well.

Whether you are having a traditional Indian wedding or a stylish theme-party, Asian caterers are sure to provide you with excellent service. However, before you sign on the dotted line, here are some questions you should consider asking your Indian caterers:

1. Are they available on the date of the party? Many popular Indian caterers can get booked months in advance, especially on weekends and during marriage season.

2. Will they be catering to any other event on the same date? Generally, if your party is the only event they are arranging, you are likely to get more attention in the run-up to your party.

3. Is the Indian catering company licensed? While having a license does not guarantee delicious food, it sure promises food safety.

4. Can they provide references? Speaking to previous customers is always useful. You can also check client reviews posted on websites/ social networks for info on the quality of service provided by the Indian catering firm.

5. Do they have a banqueting selector? It is always good to make sure that the cuisine is as delicious as advertised. While some Indian catering companies may offer a complimentary food tasting, other may charge a small fee.

6. Does the caterer serve alcohol? This is important as there are a few Indian caterers that do not serve alcohol, for religious/ cultural reasons. You can also ask your caterers about buying your own alcohol, and corkage fees.

7. Is the cost of dinnerware included? Most Asian caterers provide china, crockery, table linen and napkins, as part of their service. However, if you require personalised napkins or coasters, you may have to shell out extra.

8. What is the payment schedule? While a catering company in London usually charges a deposit at the time of booking, the payment schedule of each generally differs.

9. What is the cancellation policy? Generally, the closer the cancellation occurs to the party date, the higher will be the cancellation fee charged by the catering company in London.

10. Will there be any other charges? Find out if there is a price guarantee against rise in food prices, and if the final quote includes taxes, gratuities, labour charges etc.
