These guys catered for a friend's 40th and they were incredible! They brought everything, cooked everything, served everything and even loaded the dishwasher at the end! The food was so delicious - my favourite was probably the different ways they did pork - pork belly and pulled pork - melt in the mouth tender. Usually I hate pulled pork but the chefs version was so succulent I had to go back for seconds. Would definitely recommend them. Such a friendly, professional and hospitable nature and I really, really appreciated the leftovers that I had for the next two days! I also need to give a nod to the white chocolate and matcha cheesecake. Creamy deliciousness. Definitely check them out for all your tasty needs.

Wow wow wow! We booked the team to celebrate my Husband’s 30th Birthday and I am so glad we did. Rather than a weekend trip to London we wanted to do something a little different and Simon certainly delivered. The food was sensational, we did the British Summer 3 courses. There was a perfect amount of time between courses and the set up appeared seamless. We had Jakob serving the dishes and sharing his cocktail secrets and Alex was very efficient in keeping the kitchen spotless, it was like they were never there. Highly recommend for any occasion!

Edward and his colleague came to cook for my friends and I as part of my 40th birthday celebrations. Edward agreed a bespoke menu with me in advance that had me salivating and the reality did not disappoint. Every single dish was delicious and loved by all guests including fussy children! The only complaint was that their tummies couldn't eat more than 2 plates each even though they wanted to! Everything was tidied up and washed up afterwards, with every detail thought of to make it a fuss free and wonderful experience for all. THANK YOU!

From initial email enquiry to the very end of our party Edward and his team were a delight to deal with. They were consummate professionals. The BBQ was delicious, the drinks never stopped flowing, everything was superb. They made our party a day to remember and took all the stress out of hosting. I would wholeheartedly recommend Zest and I'm looking forward to having another occasion to employ their services. Thank you.

I used this company for my 60th birthday and they were amazing. They gave great variety of menu choices including vegan options, they turned up on time, the food and services was great and they cleaned up afterwards so you would never have known they had been there. They were very professional and friendly throughout the evening without being intrusive on our evening. My whole family really enjoyed the experience. I would recommend Edward and the rest of his staff to anyone wanting a very special evening at home. I hope to use them again sometime in the future. They are a bit expensive but for a special occasion it is worth paying for.
