Just in case we had not expressed our Thanks adequately on Saturday night.
A Big Thank you to you and your staff - you were working so hard and all we saw was the smiling faces of the staff and the wonderful food. We received so much positive feedback about the food and service. Could not have done it without you.
Cay Finglas and Peter Butler
The salads were an absolute hit! Well done I will certainly be recommending your services to anyone who asks.
Once again, thank you for an amazing job with our catering!
Thank you for catering our conference yesterday, the food was amazing. It was fresh, healthy, and tasty; and there was so much variety. Everyone commented on how delicious and amazing it was, even the Drug reps took your contact details and plan on using your business in the future.
Keep up the good work!
Just wanted to let you know that the spring rolls and samosas I ordered for my sons 21st were all devoured by the guests! The easy prep made my night a lot less stressful and I received many compliments on the great food.
A very big thank you for the catering the other day. The food was AWESOME!!!!
Lots of complimentary comments from the guests.
Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for the excellent catering this week; the team were extremely impressed with the freshness of food, the choice and certainly how you looked after the lady with special dietary requirements.
Thanks again we'll all be on diets next week!

Just a short message to say had a great night, your food was lovely, very well received by all and a big thank you and will see you again next time.
So sorry its taken me 100 years to respond but I wanted to let you know how much everyone LOVED the dinner you supplied us last week. It was so tasty, and everyone was completely delighted!! I managed to have one of each (Beef & Chicken) and they were both amazing!!! Thanks so much for all your care and attention, it helped me make the evening an enormous success.
Excellent food and service - can't rate Plates and Platters high enough. Wonderful staff, amazing menu selection AND nothing is too much trouble. Thank you Plates and Platters!!
Just a short note to say thank you for helping us with our catering on Saturday. The food was beautiful, the instructions great and serving so easy. Everyone commented on the food with the scallop moneybags and pies being the favourites.
We will certainly recommend your Company to others.
I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and your team! The food that you provided for our surprise wedding picnic on Saturday was absolutely delicious and we had sooo many compliments. There was even enough for lunch the next day! You are an excellent communicator and made organising the catering an absolute breeze for us.
Thanks for this Barbara. We had many compliments on the catering so I hereby pass them on. And THANKYOU for leaving the place so tidy.
Thanks again for your help.
Thank you to you and your team for the wonderful and professional service at our wedding, we all loved your delicious food!
We recently attended the St Patrick's College grade 12 graduation, which was catered by you. Not only was the food delicious, but I want to thank you for the concern you had with my son's allergy , and took so much care to make sure that there were no peanuts in the menu or risk of cross contamination. You have no idea what a relief it was for us to be able to sit back and enjoy an occasion that was so important to us without having to worry about what was being served. Your professionalism was greatly appreciated and didn't go unnoticed. We will gladly be recommending you to anyone looking for catering in the future. You guys were fantastic.
I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful job your staff did for us on Saturday night. I was a terrible client as I was hot and distracted and running very behind so my initial assistance to them was virtually non-existent. I also forgot to check in on them at all during the night. However, they did a great job. The food was terrific and the clean-up excellent. I am most grateful. Please pass on my thanks.
Wow wow wow. A wow for each of amazing service, beautiful food, and overall experience with Barbara and her team. I can't express the gratitude I have for Barbara and how well she ran my catered event this past Saturday. Thank you so much!
Yopu guys were so amazing at Carlos' 40th! Even with a broken oven and catering for a few food intolerances, you were professional, couteous and fun. The food was fabulous, I'll definitely be passing your name on!
Thank you Barbara and team for supplying such delicious food for our Christmas soirée for the 3rd year running. I don't know we'd do without you. Merry Christmas
Liz De Blonk
Plates & Platters catering is just AMAZING the food is just to die for! And the staff are beautiful and gorgeous! Would highly recommend Plates & Platters for any event or occasion!
Your catering at my friends 40th was amazing, great food, friendly service and smiles all around. Top of the list for any future events!
LOVED LOVED LOEVD everything - thank you so much once again! The curry was a real hit, as was the cheese platter and the clean up you did was also magnificent. You are worth a million!!
Thanks heaps once again,
Have just recently returned from leave and wanted to touch base with you regarding some catering we got from you on Saturday 5th September.
To say that the food was delicious is an understatement! Everything I ordered was perfect, and the taste of the food was sensational. The way everything was packaged was another great thing, as it was easy to identify and refrigerate.
Price was excellent, as there is no way that I could have produced that variety of food for that cost (nor would it have look so professional.
All the guests at my party were very impressed.
Thank you again
"The food was absolutely stunning. Everyone thought it the best finger food that they had eaten. So simple with no plates so no clearing up. I will be back as will several of my guests"
Hi Barb! I just want to say a huge Thank You for the AMAZING food you & your team created for our last event. It was as usual a huge Success.
(A reveiw from our Facebook page: Plates & Platters )
My (new) husband and I recently used Plates & Platters for our wedding in February 2015 at an upmarket venue space in Fortitude Valley in Brisbane. Barb is (& was) a complete delight to deal with. From the get-go, we were both 110% comfortable having P&P as our caterer. Barb seemed to 'get' what we wanted, was fully prepared to chop and change a few things to meet our dietary requirements and so (like really really) enthusiastic. Her frenetic energy is contagious and really helped us both to get excited about the food at our wedding once again (after having a few tricky experiences in the lead up to finding Plates & Platters). We definitely had quite a journey in finding someone suitable to deliver the kind of food we had envisioned. To give you some idea of the scope, we had roughly 100 guests eating for 5 hours. To begin, we had an amazing (literally AH-MAYZING) cheese station, canapés for three hours, standing mains and our wedding cake - all produced and served by P&P.
Barb went above and beyond to source decorations to 'dress' the venue (including supplying some of her own personal wooden chopping boards, bowls etc) to create our unbelievable cheese station. The number of guests that commented (and took pictures) of the amazing display was insane (we had kind of wanted the cheese station as a fun, preliminary sort of food option while we went away for photos), but it pretty much stole the show! Our wedding photographer was loving it, and took some great pictures. So many of our guests mentioned how tasty our food was (one of which used to be a caterer herself in the UK), and plenty of our guests also commented personally to me on how great all the staff from Plates & Platters were. Post the wedding, I'm so happy to recommend Plates & Platters, they're professional, accommodating, brilliant at their work and very personal in their approach. Thanks so much Barb, Curtis and I will definitely be back soon! : )
Thank you for the butter chicken for Stuart's 50th. Everyone at the party said it was delicious and asked where I got it from. will definitely get it again and will recommend your business if anyone needs catering.
Just wanted to send you a big thank you for fantastic food that we had the pleasure of consuming yesterday.
The feedback was super positive so thanks to you and your team.
Was just wanting to thank you very much for the beautiful food that you had catered for my husband Greg's 50th birthday party. Everybody commented on just how delicious the curries were. The gorgeous quiches & petit fors were also a hit with everyone. It really helped us so much to have this food for our guests & we appreciated that you & your team were able to do prepare it all for us. I will definitely be recommending Plates and Platters.
Greg & Renae Austin
Barbara. What can I say?
You and your team were amazing, superb, fantastic! The food was just beautiful and everyone commented on it. We are so truly truly grateful for your impeccable service. So from the bottom of our hearts, thank you!!
Christine & Dean Lawless
Just wanted to say thank you very much for the food you provided on Saturday for my mum's 60th Birthday.
We received numerous compliments about the food especially the curries and vegetable salad. I will certainly pass your details on to all my family that live in Brisbane.
Thank you very much for you and your teams wonderful service and delicious meal last night.
Everyone raved about the food and the gracious way you looked after us.
I am pleased your business is going well and can fully appreciate why.

Just a quick personal thanks for your fabulous effort for our origin night.
Just like clockwork as promised and the food was loved by all the
The Carbine Club
First of all, THANK YOU SO MUCH. Your team was super professional and made our night such a memorable one. Please pass on to the team our thanks. All dishes were SOOO delicious and I had many enquiries about who I had used. We could not get enough of the Moroccan lamb pies and eclairs.
I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful catering you did for us last week for our launch. Everyone gave such excellent feedback on all your food (especially in regards to your bruschetta!). Thank you again,
I was so glad to find Plates & Platters just down the road in Gaythorne! Barb, you have been so helpful in your suggestions and tips for my 40th birthday, I LOVED the lamb samosas with yoghurt dipping sauce, and the Mexican beef pies are divine...I don't need an excuse to come back for more of those! I bought a combination of ready-to-go finger foods, along with some really tasty per-baked petit-fours shells and made some of my own dishes. It was a lot of fun, but if I was pushed for time I would just pay that tiny bit extra and get everything per-prepared, it would be worthwhile to save the hours in a hot kitchen for sure! Thanks again Barbara, we will be back again.
Thank you very much for your efforts on Saturday evening. Our guests described the food as sensational, delicious and 'just the right amount'. My particular favourites were the bruschetta and the duck risotto.
I will be happily recommending Plates and Platters to my friends and family.
Just wanted to pass on some positive feedback about the curries your supplied. Everyone loved them! We served them in small paper bowls with a scoop of rice, a wedge of naan and a sprinkle of coriander. So yummy and the perfect choice for a cold night. And important to make sure the 18 year old guests ate something nutritious before they ventured out to the clubs.
I passed on your details to several people and hope you get some repeat business - you certainly will from me.
All the best
The order we received for my Sister's Hens night was perfect. The food was incredible and so quick to heat. I think the highlight were the chorizo sausage rolls and vegetarian sun dried tomato and brie quiche. Barbara, your catering made the night complete. Thank you!!!
Just home from the final cleanup.....I can only say a huge THANK YOU! The meals were outstanding and everyone was commenting to me all night. Your busy but calm manner is something quite extraordinary to see, a true professional. It didn't matter when I popped my head into the kitchen you were flat out but everyone in the team was happy under your guidance.
See you next year!
Just wanted to say thank you for the delicious food you prepared for us for our daughters 21st birthday.
It was simply delicious and so very simple to heat and serve, the guests raved about it and many asked where we purchased it from....
The service was excellent from ordering through to a very efficient pick up and run through by your husband....
Love to give credit where it's due and in your case it is very well deserved.
So thank you, we shall be return customers.
Please feel free to use my thank you, anyway you choose.
I am very happy and grateful to receive such great service from start to finish, it's a breath of fresh air.
Thankyou for all the work you and your staff did on Saturday night. I am told it is a toss up between the duck risotto and the chili pies as being the best dish for the night. Unfortunately I missed out on the pies as I was running around talking with all the people etc etc. But overall the food was fantastic and I appreciate the time you spent on it. Please pass on my thanks to all your girls who did a great job. Thanks again! Brian
Thank you so much for your help in making our party a huge success this past weekend. The canapes were awesome! Our only regret is not ordering more of them! People were absolutely stuffed, but still managed to fit in a samosa or two later in the evening!
Thanks again, :) Roman Rozanec
The salads were amazing, thank you!
Quote from one of our guests
The roast vegetable salad is without doubt the best salad I've ever tasted
Caroline E. Snow
I would just like to say the biggest thank you for the food you provided us with on Saturday afternoon.
It was all fantastic you were right about those beef mince pies, they were inhaled! But everyone commented on how great the food was and we will definitely be recommending you to people we know for your delicious food and excellent service and correspondence.
It meant a lot to me and made my 21st very special so thank you so much ?
Barb and Team,
We have been meaning to write you an email to give you one big massive thanks (& hug) for the incredible job that you did for us last weekend at our engagement party. All of our guests have been raving about how much they loved the food and service. We could not have asked for a better night and everything just happened so smoothly. It really wouldn't have been the same without you and your team so THANK YOU. You can guarantee that we will be recommending you to everyone possible.
Casey Brennan & Andrew
Hi Barbara and gang at Plates & Platters.... just wanted to thank you for your fabulous catering at my daughter's engagement party on 25th August. The service was impeccable, the food totally scrumptious, all served with a fabulous smile. All the guests complimented the food!! Thank you, thank you, thank you.... I will definitely be singing your praises to all and sundry. Till the next event in our household.....
I wanted to thank you for the wonderful banquet you provided for us at our wedding reception. We had many remarks from our guests who really enjoyed the food you catered for. It was that good and was defiantly a big highlight to our wedding and something our guests and ourselves really enjoyed. Thank you again, you certainly are such a fantastic catering company we will spread the word how good your service is.
Mifany & Dean Morelli
I just wanted to tell you how impressed we were with our food on Saturday night.
Everyone loved the mix of Mexican finger foods we had. They all turned out perfectly. We were particularly in love with the "green Wedges" . That's what everyone was talking about, but I loved the tortilla roll ups and chizoro/ pumpkin tarts too. Plenty of comments also on the Mexican chicken skewers. You did a fine job, and we will definitely be recommending you to our friends.Thank you again in helping me prepare the food for my Mexican Fiesta and working with me to prepare unusual unique finger food. Your work was appreciated. It's a pity we forgot to take pictures, as they were something to remember!
Thank you again
Julie & Danny Hay
Thanks Plates and Platters for the absolutely scrumptious food at my 1950s 21st! All the guests were raving about the custom made 1950s food and friendly service! Thank you doing such a wonderful job.
Thanks, Barbara and the team, for your fantastic service on Saturday night! All of you went the extra mile to provide us with plenty of delicious food - and served it with a smile. It was a pleasure to have you in our home, and our guests loved your culinary creations, complete with fries served in cones featuring Lucy from the Peanuts cartoon series in honour of Lucy's 21st!
Note from Barbara - We had so much fun making chip cones from our hand made template for Lucy's 21st. If we can go that step further...its our pleasure to do so!
Barb and Team,We have been meaning to write you an email to give you one big massive thanks (& hug) for the incredible job that you did for us last weekend at our engagement party. All of our guests have been raving about how much they loved the food and service. We could not have asked for a better night and everything just happened so smoothly. It really wouldn't have been the same without you and your team so THANK YOU. You can guarantee that we will be recommending you to everyone possible.
Thanks so much for the food for my party.
Loved everything - the flavours were great and interesting combos.
I will surely use your services again.
Forgive me for taking such a long time to get back to you to thank you for the beautiful food you prepared for my daughter Lydia's Engagement Party on 3 December. The food was delicious and looked fantastic and everyone loved it.
The most popular were the spicy Mexican beef pies. Just superb.
I can't thank you enough for fitting us in at such short notice but the food made the party very special. We all had a wonderful time (and some just a little too wonderful)
Wish you very best regards,
Many thanks for your delicious food
So many were impressed. And thanks for your professionalism and attention to detail.
Hi Barbara just wanted to say a massive thank you for your delicious food for our daughters christening on the weekend. Everyone loved the food and commented what a wonderful job you had done. I was so pleased with your service and how easy you made it all. I already have had a couple of people get your number off me to use you for their upcoming events
"We recently had the very good fortune to choose Plates and Platters to provide the catering for our home wedding.
Barbara from Plates and Platters is an absolute catering gem. She was friendly, helpful, gave us excellent advice on quantities and food selections, was able to make adjustmenst for our vegetarian and gluten free guests, and provided the food with easy to follow instructions for heating and serving.
Everyone at our wedding LOVED the food, it was fresh, tasty and beautifully presented. We would highly recommend Plates and Platters for your next function, in fact we have already used them again since our wedding."
Heather & Ralph Marshall
I just wanted to personally send you an email to say thank you so much for all the wonderful food.
Everyone at our wedding was talking about the food and how amazing it was.
I even think i few people took your details from the wrappers. I have posted a blog on facebook so that more people can see, but i just wanted to say thank you very much and next time we have a big event i will defiantly be ordering through you.
Once again thank you.
I just wanted to drop you a quick line to thank you for the catering you did for us a number of months ago. My apologies that I have not written earlier to say how fantastically received your food once, how amazingly tasty and well presented it was and how thankful we are that you were able to respond to our last minute request.
We will certainly use you again for any big function we have.
Jason & Kate de Bakker
Hey Barbara, thanks so much for catering for my friend's Hen's Night. The food was absolutely divine and I'm trying to plan another event just so I can come and try everything else on your menu!
Thank you so much for the delicious food that we had for my daughters Alanna's 21st. Everyone commented on the food on how delicious it was. The caramalised onion dip was to die for, something so simple was absolutely fantastic. Thank you again for the wonderful food.
Sonia Petris Borean
Hi Barbara, it was nice to meet you and definitely worthwhile using your business for my son's 21st. The self-catering option just made everything so easy. The food was delicious and you were very helpful with your suggestions. I particularly liked the smoked salmon pikelets and the little lamb pies. As the night was cold the hot food went down a treat. It was also good to hire the soup kettle so we could offer some nice warm soup as well. Everything was so easy. Thanks and we will definitely be using Plates & Platters again.
The food was delicious. So much so that we ran out of curry everyone wanted seconds and thirds!!
Despite ordering more than i thought we would need, I could easily have done with more.
Everyone commented on the delicious food and it was wonderful having Karen as my kitchen angel meant I could just enjoy the night, which i did.
I will certainly be happy to recommend Plates and Platters to others.
The 18th birthday party was a success on all accounts. The food was delicious - thank you.
I think the spicy Mexican pies scored the number one vote with the adults, and the spinach and fetta triangles were the obvious favourite with the young ones.
"Thank you again for the wonderful job you did on Saturday night.
Thank Geoff and Jeremy for working the bar so well and all your other delightful staff. You all helped to make my celebration one of the happiest nights of my life."
Thanks so much for the fab catering you provided at our home on Saturday evening.
We will definately use your services again.
And of course it all went. Thank you so much and it was easy to plate etc. I will be doing this again! Thank you
Thank you so much for squeezing my order in on Saturday morning.
Will definately be contacting you for future parties!!
I wanted to say a big thank you for organising such yummy food for my daughter Laura's 21st..
It really took the stress away - so rest assured I will be using your services again without doubt.Anyway thanks again
The food was an enormous hit on Saturday and really was so key in making my 40th birthday party a success - it was a lovely night and the two girls taking care of the food did justice to the food.
It was lovely to meet you and it sounds like your business will go from strength to strength which it deserves. Thanks so much again,
I just wanted to say a very large and very grateful Thank you for the amazing catering you supplied on Friday.
It made our event just that more special! Everyone involved commented on it, so I thought it best to let you know. Hopefully I will have a chance to work with you again!
Tessa - Empty City Stage Manager
Just wanted to say many thanks for the beautiful catering that we picked up for Saturday night's party.
We will defintely use you again and highly recommend you to others.
Lots of lovely comments! Well done! You are doing a fantastic job and I will continue to order off plates and platters and have told my friends all about the business.
Thanks so much for the catering you guys did for our party last Saturday.
It really made our night special.. Just wanted you to know that we appreciate all your efforts.
Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Barb and the Plates and Platters team for the beautiful food you made for our daughter's second birthday party. The lamb samosas were a big hit, same with the cranberry and goats cheese tartlets, chicken sausage rolls and sandwiches. We'll be back to see you again next year. And thanks for the loan of the oven! xx
A BIG THANKYOU for helping to make our night so wonderful!
The food was delicious as many of the guests commented, and the service was very professional. We will be recommending you to all our friends, and certainly be in touch again for future events.
Mary & Lyle Brown
It was also a very budget-friendly option as we did not have to cover the cost of having caterers come to our home. Barbara was lovely and we will definitely use Plates and Platters at our next function.
I recently had an occasion to use "Plates and Platters" self catering service for my daughters engagement party at our home.I contacted Barb from "Plates and Platters" regarding catering for this function. Barb was very approachable and so easy to talk to regarding my requirements. She gave me some great suggestions and I really had the feeling as though she was out to deliver great food with the focus on ease and convenience for me. I also found "Plates and Platters" to be very reasonable with their pricing, and considering I was catering for a potential of 100 guests, this was a major consideration.
Liz Smith. Ashgrove
I just wanted to say thank you for the food for Tracy's 40th.
Again thanks and I will be recommending you to my family and friends.
Thank you for making my daughters 21st amazing, and my life so less stressful. The food was extraordinary, not to mention your fabulous team. I was stressed about the weather all week, the lighting and if we would have enough to drink, the only thing I never worried about was the food. After meeting you at your shop I knew we were in safe hands.
When you said you were leaving, we wanted you to stay, because you and your team were just so nice to deal with, just like part of the family. I hope our paths cross again, and wish you all the very best in the future, I certainly have your number in my mobile ready for anyone who is looking for the best catering in Brisbane. All the very best for the new shop, kind regards,
A big thank you for helping me make my birthday one of the most amazing evenings of my life. I have had so many comments about you and Geoff's service, your delightful, delicious and fresh food that I wish you could have heard them all. From the first time we spoke, through the organisation for the event and on the night you have been professional, affable and interested in helping me achieve my dream for the party. Please also thank all your staff who assisted you and a big thank you to Geoff - he was huge success. You have a fabulous business and I'm sure it is because it reflects your dedication and enthusiasm to ensuring your clients receive the best quality and service you can provide.
Please thank your staff also as the girls were complimented many times on their manner.
The evening was a great success and I hope I have occasion to use your services again in the future."
