The catering service should provide something different from the conventional or contemporary spread. Food should be made interesting with the help of creative and innovative ideas.

A good catering service ensures that the little details of organizing things and making it look presentable. Don’t forget, we eat with eyes first.
Do ask about the quotations, billings, and invoices. This can help you plan your budgets for the rest of the things. In addition, you must not forget to ask about the required government permissions.
In certain cases, you need permissions for sound, alcohol, parking and others. Ask your caterer, whether or not he is going to assist you with those.
