Just some of the benefits to using EatFirst for your Chinese catering order
Have a restaurant-quality experience with your catering order, with authentic dishes prepared just the way they should be.
Easy to use
Ordering catering is a breeze with our easy-to-use online platform that's currently #1 in Australia.
Every diet covered
Nobody goes hungry on our watch! From gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian and halal, we have special diet options to suit all needs.
Made to order
No microwaving needed! Just like at a restaurant, our caterers prepare orders fresh.
Add a little spice to your next corporate event
Shake things up and and toss the usual catering menu out the window. Sure, sandwiches, salads and grazing tables can be delicious, but that's also what people are expecting catering to be.
Individual noodle boxes, three-bite bao buns, juicy dumplings and, of course, the classic spring rolls as finger foods, all make delicious choices for Chinese catering at corporate events. They're packed with flavour, easy to cook in bulk and menus can easily be tailored to your needs.
Chinese catering that suits everyone's taste
And diet! We've got plenty of Chinese menu items that work around common dietary needs, including vegetarians, vegans, coeliacs and those who are lactose intolerant.
Prefer thing spicy or mild, sweet or sour? We can cater for those tastes too with our extensive menus.
Our account managers and customer care team go the extra mile to make sure all of our corporate catering orders are exactly what you're looking for.

All your favourite finger foods, included!
Not every catering event is going to be a full meal, and that's why we've become well versed in nailing finger food menus, no matter what kind of cuisine you're looking to serve.

FAQs about Chinese catering
What are the healthiest Chinese catering options?
Every cuisine comes with its indulgences, but if you're trying to keep your Chinese catering menu as healthy as possible consider the following:
- Choose steamed dumplings instead of fried ones
- Order dishes that have stir-fried instead of deep-fried meats
- Skip the fried entrees like spring rolls
- Order sides of steamed veggies (they're great with oyster sauce!)
What are some good vegetarian options when ordering Chinese catering?
It's pretty common for Chinese dishes to come with a selection of proteins, or to just leave it as vegetables only. Sometimes the vegetarian option does include egg though, so keep an eye out for that if you're hoping to get away with vegetarian dishes for vegans too.
