It is your responsibility to make Tandak’s aware of any dietary requirements.

Tandak’s will advise further on food items that can be consumed according to the dietary requirements. We will try our best to be accommodating where possible. Please note that the rate of the foods may vary due to specialist ingredients that may be needed to produce such food.

Tandak’s offers a mixed platter as a taster. The cost of this will vary dependant on the food and quantity. This is only available for a collection on a day where there is already food being prepared and the items will vary according to what is being cooked on the day. The standard taster is for 2 people. If you require a larger quantity, this can be arranged and will cost more.
Temperature of food
If you have chosen a delivery only service, the food delivered may not be hot. The food will be delivered in foil trays or boxes (dependent on the nature of the food.) Food in foil trays can be reheated in the oven or can be transferred into another dish of your choice to warm according to your preference. Tandak’s is unable to control the temperature of the food delivered and takes no responsibility for delivering hot food.
If you have opted for a Tandak’s signature creative buffet style set up, the food items that will be on display will not be hot. The items which are in chafing dishes will be hot (for up to 3 hours).

Please be aware that there will be travel costs and delivery charges according to your post code.
For a set up within Birmingham there is no travel cost. However, if your event is outside of Birmingham there is a travel cost dependant on the postcode of the venue.
If you make an order over £350 within Birmingham, there will be no delivery charge.
Set Up Costs
