Food Quantity & Portion Policy

To ensure that all guests are well-fed and satisfied, we recommend the following guidelines for ordering food:

  • Estimate the number of guests attending your event: It's important to have an accurate estimate of the number of guests attending your event. This will help us determine the quantity of food that needs to be prepared.

  • Choose your menu options: Select a variety of menu items that will suit the tastes and preferences of your guests. We recommend a variety of dishes, appetizers, and desserts.

  • Determine the appropriate quantity of food: Our portions are designed to be generous, but not excessive. 

  • Consider dietary restrictions: We offer options for guests with dietary restrictions, such as vegetarian, gluten-free, and dairy-free. Please let us know in advance if you require these options.

  • Consider the duration of the event: If your event is longer than 2-3 hours, we recommend adding additional menu items to ensure that guests have enough food throughout the event.

  • When placing an order for catering, it's important to estimate the right amount of food for your guests.

  • To ensure that all guests are well-fed and satisfied, the food should be ordered based on the number of guests you will be expecting. Ordering food for the exact number of guests will ensure that everyone has enough to eat and can enjoy all the different types of food that you have selected.

  • Please note that the quantity of food ordered per dish is specifically tailored to accommodate the number of guests specified in your order. For instance, if you order food for 50 guests, each dish is prepared to serve 50 portions. Regardless of the variety of dishes selected, it is essential to match the number of portions per dish with the number of guests. This is because guests often like to sample each dish, necessitating an order that caters to the number of guests for each dish.

  • If the quantity of portions ordered per dish does not align with the number of guests, Tasty Touch Catering cannot guarantee that the food will be sufficient. It is crucial to anticipate that all guests will partake in the various dishes provided on the buffet table. Therefore, it is important to order food based on the number of guests expected to ensure that everyone is adequately fed and content.

  • By placing an order with our catering service, you agree to our food quantity policy
