    Great food, great service and professional staff

    We really enjoyed the Asian fusion flavours and food. Jane was very friendly, professional and helpful.

    Chau's reply:

    Thank you for the kind words Kelly.
    We are truly happy that you enjoyed the food and it was our pleasure to cater your wedding.

    Good experience with Chau caterer

    Chau recommended us a very good menu. All the guests loved the food. She came on time and served the wedding with a very professional manner. She is extremely friendly too.

    Astounding, best wedding food ever!

    We contacted Jane at Chau to cater our backyard wedding reception for 60 guests. We were blown away by how amazing the food was! Not a single guest didn't come up to us to rave about how delicious the food was and that it was easily the best food that they'd had at a wedding! Jane was great to communicate with and accommodating for changes we had for the menu. Her and her team also managed to do it all in a residential kitchen, the food was served hot, and it was perfectly cooked. All the dishes were familiar enough for the pickiest guests, but adventurous enough that everyone was excited to go back for seconds. Jane was also extremely collaborative and accommodating when our dates and plans were changing constantly due to COVID restrictions and the service went off safely and smoothly. If I ever get married again, you can bet I'll be calling on Jane and the team at Chau!

    Chau's reply:

    OMG!!! We're blushing! Thanks for the very kind review, it was such a pleasure feeding you and your guests. We had a blast putting together your Asian leaning menu and we are glad our Mac and Cheese met your high standards. We hope to feed you again soon!

    One of the most memorable parts

    The food was so delicious. She was really good at understanding what flavours I really wanted and how to make the different foods I liked into dishes I would love. She was so creative with the different flavours playing together. I appreciated that I was able to tell her just what I liked flavour wise and she was able to make the dishes and come up with something that fit perfectly. I had no idea what to have as dishes and I wanted something other than the traditional steak or chicken. Jane was able to come up with something and it was great being able to trust her to do so. I only plan on getting married once hahaha but I would gladly have her cook for other occasions if I can. Would defiantly recommend her to other couples.

    Every guest was happy and Jane was so helpful!

    We wanted a meal that would be interesting enough for the foodies but not too scary for the meat and potato folk, and Jane was able to toe that line perfectly with an Asian fusion buffet! She easily accommodated our requests or guided us to better options, and was lovely throughout the process (basically acting as wedding planner and therapist I might add!). Her staff was also great on the day. Warm and great attention to detail. I just wish I had time to eat more in all the excitement of the day. Thanks Jane and crew!

    Chau's reply:

    Thank you Erika!
    We really enjoyed working with you to design a menu that suited your exact vision for your wedding.
    It was also an absolute pleasure to feed you and your guests on the big day and we are very happy that you enjoyed everything.

    We look forward to seeing your smiling face again soon!

    Creative and thoughtful

    Although our plans for the event changed, our time working with the Chau team was great - they proved themselves to be very helpful and flexible to our requests and budget. We also found Jane to be especially accommodating to us being new to the area and having some basic questions.

    Highly Recommended!

    Choosing Chau as our caterer was one of the best decisions we have ever made! The food was the talk of the party and our guests only made positive comments about the food. Not only did everything taste delicious, the presentation was also beautiful. Jane is full of creativity and good ideas, and not only did she help us customize our food options and menu, but also gave us great pointers with the whole wedding planning process. Jane and her team made an effort to look for us at our wedding, to deliver us our special plate, and even had us open up the Bao Bar before serving our guests - this was a very special touch for us! Everything we requested for was honoured, and the execution was flawless. Chau was an exceptional vendor to work with, and we highly recommended them for your special event!

    Dream caterer

    Chau was everything we could ask for in a caterer for our wedding of about 180 guests.
    Firstly, the food: Chef Jane has a scrumptious Asian fusion menu that we were in love with at first sight, we had a tough time narrowing down the menu for our hors d'oevres and buffet style dinner.
    Second, the service: Chau was amazingly flexible and accommodating with our specific requests. We had a variety of options for halal dishes, vegetarian, and gluten free. Jane Peters, the business manager, was also so sweet and put aside the hors d'oeuvres for us during cocktail hour because they knew we would get so busy and likely miss out otherwise. At the end of the night they also provided the two of us with our own personalized late night snacks.
    Thirdly, logistics: Chau was very professional, thorough, and knowledgeable in working with our venue and asking the right questions so that things would run smoothly on the day of.
    Lastly, aesthetics: the food looked great! We had some Korean chicken poppers that were served in compostable cones which were so cute and we loved the environmentally sustainable aspect. Chau also provided us with cute, custom to our theme, signs for each buffet dish.
    We're looking forward to holding another event when we can get them to cater for us again.
    Photos are from our tasting, we unfortunately forgot to ask the photographers to take photos of the food.

Hi, I’m Jane. Well Jane 1 to be exact. I’m the culinary brains behind Chau and have been working in the food industry, basically all of my life. I love attending weddings, but loathe the traditional wedding food. I have a passion for creating custom menus which reflect the couple getting married. When I got married to my husband, we found it impossible to find a caterer which could create a custom Scottish/English and Vietnamese/Chinese menu which reflect our heritage. In the end, I catered my own wedding (yup that's me all dolled up with a butchers apron carving our roast) and decided then and there, that I would specialize in creating custom wedding menus which reflect each couple’s unique ethnicity & palates.

….. And I’m Jane 2. I’m the bumbling brawn and sometimes brilliant assistant at Chau and have been eating all my life. I’ve only attended 2 weddings - both my own - so I come to the wedding catering business with no bad habits. I have always been fascinated with how excellent food affects mood and elevates celebrations. Seeing people relish something that I have helped to craft for them (in whatever capacity) creates a feeling for me that is difficult to describe - I have been honoured to nourish you and be involved in your special moment. Whether at a casual festival or a posh and dignified wedding, the interaction between idea and substance is the same: come and eat - we welcome you.
