We cater for any special events or occasion
When we go out for lunch, we're getting delicious bites like sushi, Thai, burgers and Indian, so why should we settle for just sandwiches when we're getting lunch catered at the office?
At EatFirst, we're all about diversifying our offerings so you'l have the option to get so much more than just the traditional catering.

EatFirst makes it easy to get your Indian catering sorted
We believe variety is the spice of life
Travel the world with your tastebuds and add some excitement to your next working lunch with international catering. Or embrace a new tradition celebrated by those in your office; especially those with strong connections to food, like Diwali where Indian food and sweets are often shared among families and friends.
We find more and more businesses are becoming much more inclusive and are celebrating the world's events rather than just the public holidays we get here in Australia.
Healthy Indian food alongside all your favourite comfort dishes - we have it all
On one side of the spectrum, there's hearty vegetarian curries and rice and on the other... creamy butter chicken and coconut-milk based dishes with plenty of naan for dipping.
Just like we can cater to different diets, we can also cater your Indian food to be as healthy or not as you'd like. After all, we all like to treat ourselves every now and then!
According to BBC Good Food, sticking to tomato-based sauces with a bit of spice, or opting for tandoori dishes is "one of the easiest ways to enjoy a healthier takeaway as the meat is normally grilled rather than fried, cutting down calories and saturated fat."
You can make your Indian food catering as healthy or as naughty as you'd like!
FAQs about Indian catering
Is Indian food good for vegetarians?
Yes! It’s a great option for those who don’t eat meat. There are plenty of vegetarian curries available, or if you’re pescatarian, fish and prawn curries are widely available.
Some popular vegetarian dishes include:
- Palak paneer: Cheese and pureed spinach with spices
- Chickpea curry: Just what it sounds like! Curry made with chickpeas as the main event.
- Daal: Lentil-based dishes
- Vegetable pakora and onion bhaji: Fried fritters that are incredibly moreish
- Rice, naan and roti
Even better, other than paneer, all of these dishes can also be enjoyed by vegans!
Is Indian food gluten-free?
Luckily, many Indian dishes are naturally gluten free. Traditional naan, roti and fried appetisers like pakora, bhaji and samosas likely won’t be, but you may be able to find gluten-free options.
One thing to watch out for though, is tandoori meats. They may be cooked with breads, so it’s best to check before ordering.
Does Indian food have dairy?
It does sneak in, so if you’re unable to eat any dairy, it’s best to let us or the caterer know ahead of time that there can’t be any traces of dairy in your meal.
Many Indian dishes are cooked using ghee rather than oil, and while its lactose content is quite low, it is still in there.
Unlike Thai curries, some Indian curries do use cream or butter rather than coconut milk.
Yogurt-based dips are also very common, and are sometimes poured on top of a curry.
Is all Indian food spicy?
Nope! There are plenty of milk Indian foods to enjoy.
While many dishes can be prepared with less spice, a few popular options that traditionally aren’t spicy include butter chicken and korma. Naan, rice and papadams also don’t have any spice and are the perfect accompaniment to any Indian feast!
