    Incredible food and beautiful staff!

    We hired Rajapaksa catering for our wedding in March, and we were so astonished with the quality of service and food. Our family and friends are still talking about all of the delicious food! The wait staff were so kind and helpful, and we feel really lucky to have found such an affordable, delicious company to be in charge of our most important day. Thank you!

    Sam was everything we could ask for and more from a caterer. We created a fully customized menu of mainly Indian dishes. It was so incredibly delicious! The food was one of the highlights of the wedding. We still hear from family and friends how much they enjoyed it! We had the Creme Brulee and Chocolate mousse instead of a wedding cake and let me tell you- no one missed the cake! The late-night poutine bar was devoured (despite, apparently, how full everyone was from 2nd helpings of dinner!) Sam and his wife were so accommodating and incredibly well-priced. My family is considering hosting another party simply to be able to eat his food again. I wholeheartedly recommend Rajapaksa Catering!

    Delicious Food

    The good was so tasty and set out beautifully. We were told by everyone or taco and Mac and cheese bar was the best wedding good people had ever had.

    One of the primary goals for our wedding was to have a delicious and unique meal that all our guests would enjoy. Sam and Lieke went above and beyond in helping us create a completely custom menu and months after the wedding, people are still telling us how amazing the meal was that night. We had no concerns whatsoever throughout the planning process, because Sam consistently went above and beyond to make everything as clear and straightforward as possible. We cannot thank them enough for making our day that much more memorable!
