Jay & Jas Wouhra
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for everything you and the members of Sanjay Foods have done for me and my family during my wedding time. And I must say your efforts exceeded far beyond my expectations. As one can appreciate, planning a wedding can be a long, stressful and arduous task. But dealing with yourself and Lai-Yee was anything but arduous. It was truly a real pleasure.
Not only did Sanjay Foods deliver top quality cuisine, served in a professional, attentive, sophisticated and very innovative manner, it was delivered with a level of service and hospitality I have yet to encounter from any other purveyor of fine foods or wedding services within the industry. Your proficient, friendly approach and willingness to obtain and provide our expectations and vision, was always your paramount priority, and no task was too immense or too minute for Sanjay Foods. Furthermore, your experience, guidance and support were a real benefit and proved invaluable. It is my firm belief that if anyone is hoping to achieve a high level of excellence and calibre for their wedding or event, the only professional company I could ever commend and endorse would certainly be Sanjay Foods.
Once again Atul, from the bottom of my heart, thank you my friend for making our dreams of the perfect big day, a reality!
When I first set out to plan my wife’s 40th Birthday celebrations, I wanted the event to be classy, elegant, chic and fun to commemorate such an important occasion in our family. Whilst I know what I was looking for, I really needed someone who could collate my thoughts and turn my vision into reality. I’m pleased and grateful that you and Lai were able to articulate my thoughts and requirements and turn them into reality. I would like to thank you both immensely for all your hard work, strategic planning, concept formatio and above all, the mouth-watering cuisine which your team provided. Your cocktails all night were exquisite, the canapes divine, the bowl food was scrumptious without being over the top and your artisan dessert bar was a majestic finale to the gastronomical journey you created. The professional attitude on display by all the staff both before and during the event was what sets Sanjay Foods apart from its rivals. Your staff were polite, knowledgeable and fitted in brilliantly with their Gatsby themed attire, which was such a creative touch from your side and a wonderful surprise on the day. The girls in their red flapper dresses, the boys immaculately groomed in their waistcoats and bow ties added to the occasion. We have had nothing but rave reviews since the event from friends and family whose comments included: ‘Party of the century’ ‘Smashed it’ ‘best organised party ever’ ‘the bar has been significantly raised’. So much effort went into the planning of this party that its difficult to understand just how you and your team managed to pull it together whilst remaining calm and always respecting my wishes. Whilst I was specific about what the theme, decor and cuisine should be, I am pleased and grateful that you not only met but exceeded my expectations whilst recommending show stopping twists and additions which made the event even more special. I am happy to say that, apart from having the best party planners on my event, I have also made a very close friend in yourself Atul. I would have no hesitation in recommending Sanjay Foods. The only downside of the night was that it all finished so very quickly and I wish I could capture it all in a bubble.
Sunil & Atul Patel
When we first came to see you last year to discuss our Parents 50th parents anniversary naturally we were at first apprehensive in making a decision to use your company. However the statement you made “trust me I will not let you down” offered us great comfort in the fact that we could trust you to take care of our event and in the process lifted a huge burden (in the nicest possible way) off of our shoulders. During the months, weeks, days and finally hours leading up to the event date you and Lai were very attentive in listening to all our concerns and requirements and nothing seemed to be any bother. We were also very happy to take on board your suggestions especially that of the ice sculpture, live group and gold dance floor. My parents who were oblivious to the mechanics of the event were truly amazed in the transformation of the Tigers suite we had hired into a spectacular platform to purely enjoy and we were amazed too. The décor, lighting and the layout all worked out handsomely. The evening and night had finished in a flash and all the staff were very courteous in providing a level of service that felt truly silver service and five star. The Bar staff were very efficient in serving the drinks with table waiter service and the cocktails (another one of your fabulous suggestions) went down a treat and added to the whole five star classy feeling. The food starting from the Canapes which were plentiful, varied and hot offered a perfect start with the welcome drinks. Equally the main meal was also to the highest standard; hot and delicious food served in a swift manner at a pace where all 500+ guests must have felt not to have been the ones to be served the last. Positive comments from our guest during the night and starting from within an hour from the end of the event to days after are too numerous to mention here; all echoing the enjoyment all had of the amazing event that “we” in reality “you” had organised. You orchestrated the entire evening like a true maestro! You should have the honour in feeling humble and modest as your words “trust me I will not let you down” was the biggest understatement in hindsight after all! All in all what was the first major event in over 20 years that our family has hosted could not have been the huge success it was without your most valuable help; it just ended too quickly We have no hesitation in using your services again and finally a well-deserved thank you for everything from our whole family.
James & Alexandra
My wife and I had the fortunate pleasure of getting married on the south coast of Italy. As it was a relatively small affair, we decided to host a reception party in the UK and Sanjay Foods were at the top of our list to provide the catering. My Family’s relationship with Sanjay Foods extends back many years. We have always received the very best from Atul and his team. The food is second to none, the presentation is formidable and the service and coordination is always on point. The entire operation runs like a Swiss watch. Our event took place on Saturday 23rd July 2017 at the Dallas Burston Polo Club in Southam. Atul and his team provided an elicit mix of food, creating a catering extravaganza. The Sanjay Foods menu extends across the continents of this world and me and my wife took full advantage. The team put together a live fusion of Indian street food, Indo- Chinese, Thai and Lebanese cuisines and did so in a way that each dish blended perfectly with the next. The presentation of the food, from the food station set up, to the chafers and linens, all the way to the salad and fruit platters was world class. Every last bit of food was freshly prepared and fused together in spectacular fashion. The end result was exquisite to taste and the guests could not compliment the entire experience any higher. The desert bar the team created was a delight and a perfect way to soften the pallet after the rich, diverse flavours of the starters and main courses. We were also very fortunate to benefit from Sanjay Food’s extensive network of elite suppliers who assisted in providing the wonderful decorations. The flower arrangements were the best we have ever seen and all the finishing touches to the venue were sublime. Atul and his team listened intently to what we wanted and provided everything and more. They really do go out of their way to put on the best event they possibly can. The food is amazing and they offer the total package. We cannot praise Sanjay Foods any more for helping us create the incredible experience that we were privileged enough to provide to our guests. We would like to say a special thank you to Lai- Yee and Ella for all their hard work and patience! And to the main man himself, Atul Lakhani, for coordinating the event from start to finish. Thank you!
Dr Sanjay Varma & Mrs Meena Varma
What can we possibly say apart from congratulations. The 3 events you organised for us in Leicester and now our daughter’s wedding reception in Liverpool. Quite frankly, you have left our entire family speechless. My wife was totally right in her decision to choose Sanjay Foods after our first meeting. She felt she could totally trust you and I am happy to say, you did not let us down on any front. The sheer array of cuisine which was put together by your chefs meant that all of our guests, whether from Rajasthan, Mumbai, Dehli, Gujarat, USA and Hong Kong, commented on the superb food and hospitality they had experienced. From working in a marquee in freezing December to executing an outstanding event on Grand National weekend in Liverpool, all of Sanjay Food’s efforts were widely recognised. Your events team spear headed by Lai-Yee left no stone unturned in their quest to deliver not just one but 4 perfect events. Dr Bisarya, Niharika’s father in law commented on how he had attended numerous events at St George’s Hall but he had never experienced the food and theming, as organised by your team. Pleasing a room full of guests, most of whom were doctors, consultants and lawyers can be a challenging task. You and your team managed to do this on 4 separate occasions, up and down the country. For this, I will forever be in your debt. May God bless you in all your endeavours. Until our next daughter’s wedding.
Heena & Sai
From the caterers we had approached you were by far the most professional, courteous and also seemed to know exactly what we wanted. From that initial meeting, we knew we wanted you as our caterer and we hadn’t even tried your food at this point. Atul Bhai, you instantly knew the sort of people we were and what sort of menu we would like. This shows you know your business and clientele very well.
At the food tasting, we were absolutely blown away. The quality of the food and the level of service we received was absolutely exceptional – there was nothing we could fault – it was perfect. We knew that even on the day if there was a 5% difference due to the number of guests we were expecting, we knew we would have brilliant food. Atul Bhai and Lai- Yee, thank you for your recommendations and ensuring that everything we wanted could be incorporated on the menu.
During the run up to the wedding, we were reassured and always felt that we could contact you if we had any queries, we also appreciated the dessert and mocktail tasting you organised for us. As a company you always went the extra mile to give great customer service.
On the day, food was plenty and hot (which was our main request). The taste of the food on the day was on par to the day we had the food tasting. The food was served punctually, and was being replenished as required. So many people on the day and over the last 2 days have told us how wonderful the food was. We were also very impressed that on the day, both Lai-Yee and Ella, came up to us to make sure everything was ok and if there was anything we needed. This was a very nice and reassuring touch for the day. Also a huge thank you for accommodating one of our guests who didn’t eat Indian food. This wasn’t even something we asked for but you seemed to deal with it on the day. Atul Bhai we were so honoured to have you at our event and it was very reassuring to have to there overseeing everything was running smoothly like clock work. Also a special thanks to Lai-Yee who was always there and willing to help from the moment we booked, she has looked after all our needs and is a great asset to the company.
So from the bottom of our hearts we want to Thank you to you all for making Heena and Sai’s wedding the amazing day it was. You surpassed our expectations. You were extremely professional, provided exceptional customer service and and were accommodating to all our needs. Food was one of the most important aspects of the day for us and you were one of the jigsaw pieces which completed the fairly tale wedding. We wish Sanjay Foods continued great success and God Bless you all. We would be honoured to have you as our caterers again in the future.
Thank You once again and Sai Ram

“Spectacular service. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you and the team at Sanjay Foods for the fantastic job you did when catering for our wedding and reception.
The service, staff, food and attention to detail was remarkable. We have received many complements from our guests regarding the presentation and the excellent food that you provided. We could honestly not have asked for better and we will definitely be recommending you to our family and friends.
Thank you once again for adding value to our wedding.”
Sharon & Perdeep
Perdeep and I would like to say a really big thank you to Sanjay Foods and Dallas Burston Polo Club for helping make our wedding day so special. Your organisation and professionalism ensured the day ran smoothly and enabled us to enjoy our day without any stresses. The day went so well it truly was a dream wedding for us! We had so many comments on the day from our guests telling us how brilliant the day was – actually we still get told to this day how much our guests enjoyed themselves. The food was outstanding, and we’ve had so many comments that the food was the best food our guests have ever had at a wedding. It was reassuring that everything was under control and neither Perdeep, I or our families had to worry about anything. I will always recommend people getting married to go with Sanjay Foods!
Once again thank you!
From, Sharon, Perdeep, The Thiara and Paul Family

Sunny & Nav
“I have to say Sanjay Foods created an absolute feast for our guests with an A La Carte fusion twist on traditional Indian cuisine. From quirky canapés during the cocktail reception right through to our hand carved dessert bar, Sanjay Foods really ticked all the boxes for an exquisite dining experience throughout our regal themed wedding”
Nobin & Karina
“Words cannot begin to describe how overwhelmed we both were at the support we received from Sanjay Foods on this most special occasion – our wedding reception. From the very first inquiry to the food being served on our tables, we experienced nothing short of excellence and efficiency. The food was deliciously sumptuous and abundant in supply. The Sanjay Foods team bent over backward to help to help make our wedding day even more special. Our guests were very happy with the service and even more overjoyed at the taste of the food. We close in simply saying thank you for the love you have shown us and the love you put into producing and serving the finest cuisine. Needless to say that myself and my dear wife would highly recommend Sanjay Foods for any occasion or event”
Sammy & Ricky
“I am writing following the celebrations of yesterday . I am writing specifically to say ‘’ thank you ‘’ and ‘’ well done ‘’. I thought that we put on a magnificent event in every aspect . The weather was perfect with the exception of the wind on a couple of occasions . It isn’t easy to deliver the concept and deliver it flawlessly . You and your team did just that . From the reception in the most impressive gardens to the lunch in the dining room and of course the Ibiza themed party in the adjoining private room . The real test of any event is the reaction of the guests . Everyone that I spoke to absolutely loved it . It was so much more than a rokha and far superior to most weddings .
Finally the test of any relationship is how two parties can work together , enjoyably and without strain . Not only did we manage that throughout the preparations but on the day , we laughed we smiled , we hugged and had some photo’s taken together . I think that is the measure of how far we have come together .
I look forward to working together again .”
Neelam & Kash
“Firstly they are well organised, very professional and delivered the whole package from start to finish. They catered for my daughters wedding, and everything from delivery to presentation to staff was excellent. Ella and Lai-Yee the liaising staff were excellent! They fulfilled all my requests to the best of their abilities which were fabulous. The waiting staffs uniform and their overall presentation was also very well detailed and looked immaculate. I will definitely use them for my next wedding! They were always on hand, right till the very end and they saw everything through and dealt with any issues or problems swiftly and efficiently. They were excellent with delivery, with getting this out on time and in a professional and ambient manner. They were always well presented and always relying information back to me and my husband about timings and any issues, not that we encountered any! They were brilliant on seeing any people that required their help, none of my guests were left waiting or lingering for food or drinks. The staff were efficient, quick and reliable. The overall service is one that I could not knock, this was my second wedding and my better caters. I was at ease because they all had it under control and I was never left in the dark or had to take on too much headache.
Overall a fantastic company, a brilliant team and I would recommend them to anyone! “
Roshni & Sachin
“We would like to say a huge thank you for making our wedding day everything we could have dreamed of and more! It was perfect from start to finish and the staff were amazing. I would also like to say a special thank you to Atul and Lai for doing everything they possibly could to make the whole day run smoothly..there was not one thing I could fault! A perfectly executed job! It meant the world to us and you did an incredible job of it. The food was absolutely fantastic..I just wish I could have eaten more! All of the guests commented on the “wow factor” of the wedding and on particular the dessert counter which was just incredible. Thank you for everything you did for us, even the little touches, (ice sculptures, additional food items etc) it meant so much to us. Thank you for being part of our fairy tale and giving us our happily ever after!”
Dimple & Jatinder
“We were pleased to say the food served was beyond expectation with service to match. The most notable element of our experience was the attention to detail, with modern day flavours truly pushing the boundaries of traditional Punjabi cooking. We recommend Sanjay Foods wholeheartedly as they promised and delivered on out memorable occasion.”
Vanisha & Jay
“Sanjay foods were amazing throughout the wedding process. I had an awful tragedy ahead of my wedding planned in 2015 when my dad suddenly passed away a few days before my wedding was due. Sanjay Foods were one of the first to contact when they heard to say do not worry about anything wedding related we will sort whenever you are ready. Wedding was postponed until May 2016. They were extremely helpful when I finally contacted them and they demanded nothing from me, I had a few other suppliers not believe me initially and made it a difficult process not only to grieve but also deal with my situation likewise I had a great bunch of suppliers/vendors.
Sanjay foods help plan your wedding, they were not just caterers they were wedding coordinators! On the day itself, food was complimented to the highest for both the wedding and reception-mostly the Double Dokhra for the wedding and the kebabs for the reception. The staff are all extremely professional. Lai-Yee is the star of the show; she knows it inside out and will always go the extra mile.
The values of Sanjay foods show throughout every event they do. “
Craig & Natalie
“We will never be able to thank Sanjay Foods enough for making our day as special as it was! Our friends and family often comment on the wedding and how amazing it was especially the food! From helping in the run to ensuring the whole day went perfectly, Atul, Lai-Yee and the Sanjay team were beyond amazing and made our dream wedding come true!”
“I came across Sanjay Foods when I was planning my daughter’s wedding. Against many caterers, I felt at ease when I first had a meeting with the management of Sanjay Foods. They made me feel comfortable and at ease, as I was apprehensive and concerned as it was a huge event for my family. I was pleasantly surprised with the approach and the professionalism they had extended to all our family members. From initially choosing the venue, selection of menu, food tasting and explanation of the quote was very easy to understand and competitive. As the day came nearer, the team at Sanjay Foods kicked into action by advising and guiding us to make our life easier. I felt that they are not just caterers but in true essence event coordinators. On the day itself I was left focusing on greeting my invited guests while Sanjay Foods looked after all the hospitality needs of my guests. It was like the team was an extension to our family. I had some many guests coming up to me and commenting on the service and said they would definitely be interested in getting in touch with Sanjay Foods. I would definitely recommend Sanjay Foods, especially Lai-Yee & Atul for anybody who would be looking to entertain their guests.”

Lizzy May- Ashanti Strings
“As one of the country’s premier music entertainers, our aim at Ashanti Strings is always to exceed the client’s expectations. This requires working closely with other event suppliers to provide a seamless total experience for clients and their guests. We are always delighted to work with Atul Lakhani, Lai-Yee Cheung, and the team at Sanjay Foods as we know that their exceptionally high level of professionalism, quality service, exquisite food dishes and their pursuit of excellence are key to a successful event. Since our unique electric violin and cello Bollywood show usually involves playing our instruments interactively whilst walking around the tables while the guests are eating, close coordination with the catering supplier is essential. Timing is critical to ensure access for both performers and waiters, especially when our show involves dancers as well. It is always a pleasure to work on these projects with the people at Sanjay Foods as we know we will receive friendly, enthusiastic assistance at all times. Whether it’s a luxury wedding with hundreds of guests, a prestigious corporate event or an exclusive private party we are always confident of success when working with Sanjay Foods; we know that we are dealing with the experts – industry leaders for whom only the highest standards are acceptable.”

As a Toastmaster, I know that when working with Sanjay’s I will have to be on the top of my game. Their excellence brings out the best in me professionally, and I know this is the same with other suppliers. They set the standard the rest of us professionals have to aspire to. When I announce dinner I know that it will be served by an immaculately dressed, well-trained waiting staff. Service will be efficient and done with a smile – this is a quality that is altogether too rare these days. Absolutely nothing is too much trouble for the client.
Their mantra is, “Great food, great service, great people”.
They live up to this in every way.”
DJ H (Kudos AV)

From the original Enchanted Forest theme, to the fabulous launch of Dallas Burston Polo Club to the exquisite event at Pinewood Studios. It has always been our pleasure to work in conjunction with likeminded professionals who share the same commitment in delivering world class events. Their food, their presentation, their service, their etiquette, their pursuance of excellence and their understanding of the client’s requirements is phenomenal. We have an extremely close relationship with Atul and his team and always look forward to working with them.”
‘We have performed at multiple high end events across the UK and both Madhu and I have always looked forward to the amazing catering and service provided by the Sanjay foods team.

Aamira Tejani- Masquerade Ball in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support
‘I would like to thank all of Sanjay Foods for their help in planning the masquerade ball as I couldn’t have raised over £9,780 for Macmillan Cancer Support without them. They knew how important this cause was to me and went the extra mile in providing decor, catering to the events needs and ensuring that it all went smoothly. But most importantly, the food was fantastic especially the selection of desserts! It definitely exceeded my expectations and I look forward to working with for future events.’
His Honour Simon Hammond
“The food was absolutely delicious and was greatly appreciated by my wife and I and our 10 guests who were all connected to my work as a Judge. We are still eating the left overs which my family are really enjoying. I would also like to add that your 3 chefs were first class, arriving well in advance of the dinner, left no mess and even did all the washing up as our dishwasher had just broken down, what amazing service is that! They were all so delightful and charming.”
Magdalena Wolfe-Channel Development Manager at Sky
“The event was very successful and like Renata said, it exceeded everyone’s expectations. The feedback we received is hugely positive; everyone was very impressed and had a really lovely time. The food was fantastic and overall experience really great!”
