Sydney has literally thousands of restaurants, with many offering catering services. Rather than sifting through them all yourself, we've done the work for you.
First, we've vetted them as a company, to make sure we're only offering the best food, best service and best range of cuisines to you, our customers.
Next, we've asked customers like you to provide feedback after every order so we know that our partners are always up to scratch.
10 of the most delicious and trusted caterers in Sydney
The Pizza Boys
There's no way to get fresher pizza than getting it straight out of the oven and the Pizza Boys make that happen by bringing the ovens to you.
After buying a couple of ovens, putting them onto a mobile trailer and starting their business back in 2011, two teenage brothers make thin-crust pizzas wherever you'd like them to. The trailers aren't fixed onto a truck and can be brought right into your venue, if you'd like, making food the centre of attention at your event (like we think it should always be!).
For EatFirst customers, there's a few pizza packages available, each with at least eight pizza varieties. For those who need to watch what they eat, vegan cheese and gluten-free crusts are available. If you'd like, The Boys will also throw together a bunch of salads to go alongside the pizzas.
I Love Sushi
With well over 20 years of experience, the team at I Love Sushi rolls up top-quality dishes to serve in cafes, canteens and at events.
Now one of Sydney's largest sushi wholesalers, it's added catering to its repertoire and is serving up sushi at offices across the city. You can order individual bento boxes, sushi platters and plenty of Japanese-inspired finger foods to go along with them.
But don't take our word on it. Hear it straight from EatFirst customers who say it's "absolutely incredible sushi...there [were] barely any leftovers, it was devoured!"
Doughboy Pizza Artarmon
Cooking pizzas for more than 20 years, Doughboy crafts pizzas so good they'd actually eat them in their dreams.
And it's not just the owners that think so. EatFirst customers who have ordered from Doughboy before have said it's "some of the best pizza we ever had" and that it was "great, fresh, flavoursome and delivered hot".
More than 30 pizza combinations are on the menu, with just about all of them available with a gluten-free base.
Fresh salads can be added to any pizza order, too. And garlic bread. Because it's all about balance, right?
Sydney Corporate Catering
Made for boardroom meetings and corporate soirees, Sydney Corporate Catering has been serving the city's workplaces since 2005. It's menu has everything from delicious breakfast bites and sweet slices that are perfect for a meeting with morning tea, to premium corporate lunch packages that will impress everyone from graduates to general managers.
But don't just take it from us. Our customers have said the "food was supurb". And if you're looking for food that will wow both in taste and looks, another happy client says "everything was presented exceptionally well."
There's just something about food that's made by your mum, and this caterer knows it. Mama's Catering dishes up mouthwatering Turkish eats with all the comforts of home cooking. From all your favourite mezzes like dolmades, kibbe, sambousek and plenty of dips, to grilled skewers, falafel and kofte, Mama's can cook up quite the feast.
One of our happy customers says "this was the best lunch they've had", while others say Mama's is "FABULOUS".
With plenty of vegetarian-friendly and dairy-free options too, Mama's has had plenty of positive feedback for the wide selection.
Skip salads and sandwiches, ditch the buffet and move on from morning tea. Hut Dog really shakes up the usual catering options by wheeling a hot dog stand right up to your workplaces and serving sausages that can't get much fresher.
Inspired by different places in the world, you can opt for German-inspired toppings, go all-American with classic New York-style dogs or opt for a mini Mexican fiesta with chilli and jalapenos.
Guzman Y Gomez Australia Square
One of Australia's largest Mexican chains is also now one of the biggest Mexican caterers. Treat your team to tacos, burritos and nachos that are always made with the freshest, and best-quality ingredients.
"My mindset when we started was whatever we were building, I wanted it to be the best. We make everything fresh. We never compromise," said Steven Marks, one of Guzman Y Gomez's founders and CEO.
And staying true to his promise, here you'll get all the flavour without any filler. Guzman Y Gomez doesn't use any added preservatives, artificial colours or flavours, or common additives like sweeteners or enhancers. All the chicken used is free-range, too!
From juicy charcoal chicken to all your favourite Middle Eastern mezzes, this family-owned restaurant serves up some of the best Lebanese food in Sydney's Inner West.
Great for large gatherings or small meetings, choose from convenient lunch boxes or opt for larger, buffet-style eats with plenty of salads and sides to pair with charcoal chicken, shish, lamb skewers and, of course, all the Mediterranean dips you know and love.
If you're catering for special dietary needs, there's plenty of the menu that's halal, dairy-free, vegan and gluten-free.
Oricco has gotten rave reviews from EatFirst customers too, who have said "the food was amazing" and dubbed it as an "office favourite".
Office birthdays and celebrations just got even sweeter.
Headed by the former fine dining chef at the Shangri-La Hotel Sydney, Looma's Cakes bakes gourmet cakes and macarons from scratch using only the best ingredients. And if you're needing to accommodate colleagues who are gluten-free or vegan, there are plenty of mouth-watering delights on the menu that will suit.
If you're putting together a last-minute party, or forgot your boss' birthday (!), these treats can be ordered with just 16 hours' notice.
Surely, thousands of five-star reviews on Google can't be wrong.
Brazilian Barbecue Catering
More than just Brazilian food, the team here also offers an American smoked BBQ package and a Mediterranean-inspired grill package
"Staff always rant and rave about how good the food is from Brazilian BBQ."
"Ensured everything was perfect, clean and presentable"
