How to select your wedding caterer:

It’s important to check the credibility of the company – you’ll need a reliable caterer to ensure things don’t go awry during your big day.

You can do so by looking into their customers’ reviews based on the past events they’ve done. These will tell a lot about the company.


Where to get the best deals:

Keep a look out for wedding shows or fairs your preferred caterer would be participating in, there usually will be special promotions offered during such events.

Hard work and good planning always pay off!


Ways to work with a limited budget:

Tip: If you’re working with a limited wedding budget, you can consider opting for a normal buffet menu with basic set-up – these are usually cheaper by 40% in comparison to wedding packages.



On food tastings:

Tung Lok offers complimentary food tasting sessions upon confirmation.

During these sessions, we always ask our couples to take note of the taste of the dishes and feedback accordingly, – be it whether the dishes are too salty or too sweet.

We welcome feedback as we understand that every couple has their preferences. Tasting sessions also allow our chef can rectify the issues before your actual day.


How Tung Lok ensures things are up to standard:

We have a team of experienced personnel from Sales, to Kitchen, and Operations to ensure that everything on the big day meets your expectations.
