10 out of 10. Chau is amazing to work with!!

Chau is incredible! Chef Jane, Ashley and their team were amazing to work with; from menu ideation, tasting, presentation and service on our wedding day. Everything was amazing. Chau also partners with a event rental company, helping us streamline our process acquiring tables and chairs.

Chef Jane’s all vegan menu ideas were SO GOOD. Between the beautiful (still all vegan) charcuterie spread, cold noodle salad ending with “pulled pork” and vegan mapo tofu bao. Our friends still rave about how good everything tasted.

On our wedding day, Ashley and their team were excellent. The team was super fast, easy to work with and had amazing attention to detail; they even helped us our dessert display from a 3rd party. Ashley’s check in as her team wrapped up for the night was something we both appreciated: Ashley was super clear about what had gotten done and anything that remained to do on our end.

We are so happy we chose Chef Jane and the team for our wedding!

Creative and professional Wedding Catering with Chau

We could not be happier with the service that we received from Chau. Hands down of the best decisions we made for our wedding!!

As we all know, food and beverage are one of the most important parts of a wedding and what the guests will remember! The service that we received could not have been more perfect for what we were looking for. Our guests still cannot stop talking about the amazing food and signature cocktails that we served at the wedding!

On the day of the wedding, there was a little hiccup with rain right before our (untented) ceremony/reception. Our amazing vendors, including Chau, somehow found a way to make everything work and Chau's team was instrumental in this.

We hosted an elegant backyard wedding for 70 guests Sept 2023. We were looking for catering that was creative, interesting and delicious. Chau absolutely delivered! Our menu was Vietnemese/Mexican inspired. Jane and her team were accommodating and excellent throughout the whole process. We also especially appreciated the modifications that they made for allergies and particular eaters. They even brought out a special plate for my father, which was so helpful! They also saved a plate of appetizers for us (the bride and groom) which was so helpful. They also were flexible and willing to make our kitchen set up work, which saved us thousands of dollars.

On the day of the wedding, Chau brought a fun and classy touch to our event with their excellent servers and bartenders. Their service manager, Ashley, was also awesome and made me feel at ease throughout the evening. The value and execution of their service is unparalleled. This whole experience made me wish that I worked in weddings so that I could hire them again.

We are so happy and grateful to have worked with Jane, Ashley and their team! Wish we could relive (and re-eat) it all over again :D Thank you so much Chau!

Amazing team and amazing food!

Working with the team at Chau was amazing! We met with a lot of different caterers when we were planning our wedding, and Chau immediately stood out to us. We had an initial call with Jane where we discussed our food tastes, backgrounds, etc and she planned a menu for us that played off of our cultural backgrounds and the things we liked, but also remained open and neutral enough that all of our guests would also love the meal.

I have to say that the real stand out from our wedding though was the staff that Chau brought in. The servers and bartenders were truly so incredibly kind and awesome. A couple of them helped my husband and I pack things into the car at the end of the night which they absolutely didn't have to do and they were so fun to talk to and just seemed to be having a great time right along with us throughout the night.

Jane and her team were also so supportive leading up to the wedding. When things were getting the most stressful, they really stepped up helping us figure out how much alcohol we needed to buy, planning our signature cocktails, helping with rentals, etc. I couldn't believe how helpful they were. The team is incredible, the food is incredible, we're so happy that we decided to go with Chau for our wedding!

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!

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.

Couldn't have been happier with Chau!

We got so many compliments on our food! Chau came up with a wonderful custom, all vegetarian menu for us that we just loved. Two food stations: a bao stand and a dumpling stand, plus a salad station and passed appetizers. Plus they staffed our bar with a great bartender who whipped up our custom cocktail menu expertly. It was nothing like any other wedding food we've ever had and it was all super delicious. Highly recommended.

The Amazing Chau

Jane is an amazing chef & organizer & person to work with,.

She created a very unique menu for our Wedding and our guests definitely LOVED the menu she designed.

Jane's crew also helped us in arranging our amazing Bartenders, the very personal wait-staff and all the catering cutlery and all the dishes. There would not have been any way that it could have gone smoother without the assistance of their crew.

The only minor issue was one colleague kept getting our names wrong during several of our meetings which was a little nerve-wracking in-case we got mixed up with somebody else. Also, similarly there were things that were discussed in previous meetings but had to be re-iterated a few times over the span of the planning with the Chau team. This is definitely something that could be worked on.

However, I am 100% glad we chose Chau and especially Jane for catering our wedding and delivering the dishes that were way beyond our expectations, and would 100% recommend them for any weddings or any future events! (P.S pricing was also super competitive compared to other vendors) :)

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.
