We've been chatting to Albert at Jollof Pot....who have been very professional and helpful. If you're on a tight budget i'm sure they could accommodate you, they set up and provide waiters and all the cutlery and crockery for you, well worth having a chat to Albert. They will work around your venue and with you.
i'm no expert but IMO £6 is too good to be true - even for a buffet...unless they are using EXTREMELY cheap ingredients and not making a penny of profit! It is 100% untrue for a sit down 3 course meal huni...
waiting staff are expensive - so you couldnt possibly pay £6 per head for such a high level of attention and service.
jollof pot will be making a few items for our wedding and the rest of the catering will be done by cyril at mychoppys.
I have found albert and adwoa to be very helpful but they are expensive - but then they do offer a high level of service incl. flowers at the buffet table as i saw recently at my friend's engagement ; )
thanks. been scouring the net trying to find real reviews of them and nothing. My OH and I will go along and have a taster with them later during the year anyway. I also just speoke to Nigel from Favour (very nice!).
I think it's possible. Most other caterers just have a bigger mark-up and plenty will rip you off. I had a quote for £6 too. The caterer I went with did our buffet for £10 per head, a 3 course buffet. It included glassware, crockery and cutlery. They served our drinks too. I used him as he did my cousin's wedding last year so I knew he had experience of weddings and I knew what the food was like. I have to say the food he did at my wedding was much tastier!!!
brownbabygirl sorry I just noticed you asked about Ghanian caterers. Mine are West Indian.
We had soup starters, cod fish balls, rice & peas, jerk chicken, normal chicken, fried fish, curry mutton, white rice, vegetables, noodles, macaroni cheese, salad. Apple pie and custard or cheesecake and ice cream dessert. All very delicious (even more so than when he did my cousin's wedding last year) and absolutely no reports of food poisoning. He knows what he's doing and takes pride in it!
I am not being funny but i looked at their website and it looks like 6 pound per head it looks really poor quality.
If you are black then you should know its the one thing people will remember at your wedding my nan still talks about how awful my cousin's wedding food was and that was 3 years ago she got some back street cheap people to do her food.
Stop thinking how low can i go and start thinking quality for £6 they will be using tesco value ingdeiants
Try Mahogany restaurant in Leyton East London. I met with the lady who owns the restaurant a couple of weeks ago and sampled her food. Its quite good. I am not sure where she is from however she caters for Ghanaian and Nigerian.
She gave me a consultation and is charging roughly £7 a head. She is extremely professional and will provide you with some good advice. She will only deliver the food - that is why it is cheap. You will have to hire staff to serve this though.
