Review this supplier
18 Mar 2022

These guys were amazing from start to finish! We went to one of their tasting nights and all of the food was delicious and we knew they were the perfect crew to feed our hungry guests. They were also amazing in communication all the way up until the wedding and also on the day. The day came and they worked so hard and made sure everyone was looked after, especially our food allergy guests. They also surprised us with a beautiful engraved chopping/cheese board with our names and wedding date on it which just added such a special touch to the service they provided us. When they say "above and beyond" they really bloody mean it!! You will not be disappointed when you book these guys.

We can easily say that HC Catering (Hot Coals Catering) were the best suppliers we engaged for our Wedding. They truly go above and beyond to ensure great quality and service. Constant communication during the wedding planning process was a blessing and their willingness to cater to whatever we wanted, needed or change of plans was incredible. We have received many complements from guests who loved the delicious food and cocktails and noticed the family/homely touch to it all. Have recommended them highly to a number of family and friends and would happily have the team do another function for us in the future.

We engaged HC Catering for our wedding. Their service was excellent during the consultation phase and the throughout the lead up to our big day. The team were lovely and very professional, ensuing all our needs were met. We were particularly impressed with their responsiveness to emails and phones calls, Nick was all over our guest dietary requirements and was always accommodating to our ever-changing game plan. The team on the night were highly professional, friendly and looked after our guests to the highest possible standard from the drink’s services to the delicious hot meals served. Richard, our main contact for the night was lovely and ensured everything ran smoothly as planned. He was highly approachable and tweaked things on the fly with speeches running over time etc. The food was simply amazing, perfectly cooked and hot. Couldn’t be happier with the service, they made everything hassle free for us!

The team at Hot Coals recently catered for our wedding, which was held on our home farm in East Gippsland. The whole process from the tasting night, quoting, rescheduling, arranging logistics, to setting up and working from our paddock on the day was just so easy. They were always incredibly personable, offered excellent advice (always trust the experts), and nothing was too much to ask. They also presented better value for money than any other company I had quoted. The food itself was brilliant, on time, and we received great feedback from our guests. At the end of the night, they personally thanked everyone, not just us. If you are searching for a catering company with exceptional service, delicious food, who are willing to travel remotely to cook on-site, I couldn’t recommend HC Catering highly enough!

Gourmet, affordable, with huge variety! Hot Coals Catering were incredible catering for our Wedding of 85 guests at a winery in Yarra Valley. Can't thank Richard, Tamara, and the team enough. They offered a tasting night that was included with our booking and from there we were hooked. The food was always to be the main star of our reception for our guests and HC Catering executed it flawlessly. We served half a dozen different types of Wood Fire Pizzas and several types of hot and cold canapes, and hot jam donuts for dessert- and all our guests raved about the food. The servers were attentive to every guest, and everything was delicious. Also, a fraction of the price when looking at any other wedding caterer/ venue with a set menu for easily triple the food. HC offered ultimate flexibility, can not recommend highly enough for your event.

The best in the business! Hot coals was amazing start to finish, from my personalised menu to all my dietary needs the whole experience was easy and perfect. Professional and fast responses to all my needs. On the night I didn't need to worry because the staff had everything under control and were trained to the highest level. The food is beyond anything I can think of as its not frozen, it is all freshly made and has so much taste and not dry. I will always choose Hot Coal every time I need catering

Hot Coals! Thank you so very much for filling our bellies to the brim at our wedding. Your service was second to none and we loved the way you so thoughtfully took care of everyone’s specific dietary requirements. Your food is always delicious and it was such a joy to have you cater for us at Acacia Ridge. A special shout out to Tamara for looking after us from the tasting night, right through our postponement, helping to organise a special dinner on our original wedding date and lastly organising the final details before our wedding day. Thank you 🥰

Hi Kate, thankyou so much for telling us, we do appreciate your words. Such hard times rescheduling etc, but we got there in the end! All the best!

Hot Coals were incredible from the very first phone call we had only 4 weeks out from our previously postponed wedding! We went to their tasting night and were met with friendly, caring and helpful staff members. The food was SO good. The whole team were very accommodating of my indecisiveness and gave us so many options to make the day perfect. On the wedding day, they looked after all guests and checked in with us throughout the night to ensure we’d drank/ate enough. The only sad thing was that we were so busy that we didn’t get to eat all of the food we had planned to 🤣 Our guests spoke very highly of the food and the service! I would highly recommend Hot Coals for any event. They are just so flexible and really beautiful humans!

Hi Susan, thank you so much for telling us, we loved your event so much. We wish you all the best for the future; see you again one day!

The service from Hot Coals was exceptional, my guests who had dietary requirements were looked after and said their food was amazing. Hot Coals go the extra mile cleaning glassware and ensuring that empty bottles were taken away and even cleaned my kitchen. All food was hot and very tasty. Customer service is paramount, I was kept up to date through the whole process and any changes that I made were no trouble at all. I think Hot Coals is second to none and I know my family and friends were impressed and I will certainly use Hot Coals again and recommend them for any type of function.

Oh Leanne thank you so much - we were thrilled to be part of your beautiful day. We wish you and Ron all the best and perhaps we'll see you for an anniversary in the future!

Hot Coals Catering was beyond amazing, from the very beginning the Jacqui and all the staff were in constant communication which was remarkable, the tasting night we attended sealed the deal! Hot Coals were so eager to assist with any dietary requirements as that was a big issue for us. During photographs, they made sure that the bride and groom were well attended to, bringing us food and drinks so we wouldn’t miss out! Above and beyond in customer service, reliability as well as food presentation, smell and taste, everyone spoke for hours afterwards about how warm and friendly their service was. My husband and I would like to express the deepest gratitude for having Hot Coals as our Caterers for our wedding! The Russells ~ 7.12.19
