A professional team serving delicious food

Thank you Andrew, Alby, Stephanie and Caitlin for helping make our combined 50/21st a spectacular evening. From the first inquiry to the final clean up it was all handled
professionally and efficiently. All my guests complimented me on the amount, taste and selection of gourmet finger foods. Thank you for taking the time to make sure that any of my guests who had allergies were catered for and had plenty of what they were able to eat. It was truly appreciated!

David’s 80th June 2019

From first call to execution Andrew so easy to communicate and work with, but then I knew this from my daughter Sam’s high recommendation as she had engaged him for previous functions.
The food was wonderful and we have had many compliments on the quality and presentation both at the party and since. It was delicious. Asha, the waiter was so professional and friendly and added to the whole enjoyment of the evening.
We would highly recommend Andrew and staff to anyone .
The transportation of food, preparing and serving was so efficient and the kitchen was left spotless – as if he’d never been !!

Wow… thank you Andrew for an absolutely superb array of food. Your menu choice was outstanding and my guests raved all night (actually they are still raving now)! I cannot thank you enough for your professionalism, attention to detail , flexibility and delicious food. Stephanie was amazing when serving guests and the kitchen was sparkling at the end of the night. I look forward to working with Standing Room Only again in the not too distant future! In a word…UNBELIEVABLE!!!

Ten out of ten

Standing Room Only catered for my cocktail party for about 40 people on 11 May. Shortly after I sent my email enquiry, I received a telephone call from Andrew to find out more about what I had in mind and to discuss his services. From that point on I was confident that Andrew would be able to deliver great food and service. And I was not disappointed. Andrew arrived at the appointed time and proceeded to deliver delicious food, made to order and left the kitchen absolutely spotless. Caitlin and Lisa, the serving staff, were excellent. So many of my guests commented on the quality of the food and service. All in all, Standing Room Only made my party very successful.

The quantity was plentiful and the quality, excellent!!

Stephane did a great job… our guests were very impressed.  It made life a lot easier for me and from all accounts, the quantity was plentiful and the quality, excellent. Hope you received the pate recipe.

Quite a few of your flyers and business cards were picked up on the night and I will be singing your praises to my work colleagues as well.

Once again, thank you for a great service!

23 February 70th birthday celebration

All the reviews I had read were spot on. Andrew’s communication was faultless and he delivered everything he promised. Our son’s engagement party was such a memorable night. Andrew showed up on time and incredibly organised. I don’t know where to start with the food. We selected Room 5, sent off our menu choices to Andrew and he contacted us to suggest changing two items to more filling options. That hadn’t crossed my mind so we were very grateful for his input. Our favourites were the meatballs (amazing!), the pork belly, pulled pork sliders with the blue cheese sauce, fish and chips (the caper aioli was so tasty) and the beef and red wine pies. Stefanie was a great waitress; she made her way around our guests so well. They served up the cake like the reviews said, and the kitchen was left spotless. Having Standing Room Only gave us the opportunity to enjoy the night with our family and friends. They are still talking about the food!

Thanks again,

Barbara & Damon

pleasure to deal with from start to finish

Andrew was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. As well as providing a great choice of menus, Andrew always got back to me immediately to confirm all details. He and his wait person arrived punctually, set up everything for efficient service and provided a standard of food that all my guests commented on very positively. On completion of the service the kitchen was left spotless. I have no hesitation in recommending Andrew for any catering requirements and he will certainly be my go-to person for future party planning.


food and service were impeccable

Andrew catered my 50th birthday party for 68 people at the Local Larder in Ashgrove. Everything went so smoothly, the food and service were impeccable and all the guests were glowing in their feedback.

Brendan Power

Delicious and beautifully presented food

We engaged Andrew to cater for my husband’s Birthday party in our home and we could not have been happier with the professionalism, delicious and beautifully presented food along with the ease in which Andrew was to deal with from the first communication of discussing the details of the party to the afternoon of his arrival, where he simply took over the kitchen along with Lisa to leave us to enjoy ourselves. All the guests commented on the food not only for how delicious it was but there was plenty of it. Dietary requirements were easily met and Lisa liased with those guests to ensure they were comfortably looked after. The kitchen was spotless. Thank you Andrew and Lisa for helping us celebrate in style! We will definitely engage you again for our next party. regards Amanda and Max

Highly recommend SRO as the food was excellent

Highly recommend SRO as the food was excellent, the chef, Lara, and server, Kathryn, provided unobtrusive service and left the kitchen sparkling clean. Some of the party attendees hold high level hospitality positions and they were also suitably impressed. The business cards that were left on the end of the kitchen bench were all taken probably assuring SRO of continued business.

Jim Perry

highly recommend Standing Room Only

We would like to thank Andrew and his team for the outstanding quality of service and delicious food they provided for our 80 guests last Saturday. We would definitely use them again for any future event and highly recommend Standing Room Only.

Standing Room Only catered for my farm wedding

Standing Room Only catered for my farm wedding in Dayboro on the 29th of September. We had raving reviews about the food & the staff from our 65 guests. Upon arrival, the staff immediately sought out those with dietary requirements & ensured they were fed the correct foods throughout the night. The chef prepared the same foods as everyone else but changed them to suit lactose & gluten intolerant guests – they felt included and well looked after. The staff set aside food for my husband and I to eat after our wedding photos & brought it to our designated location at a time that suited us. They also cut & served our cake which was an additional bonus. They left my mums kitchen sparkling clean & were friendly and helpful. The highlights were the slow cooked chicken tacos, mushroom truffle pizza, pork sliders & curry pies (we had room 4) but my mother-in-law who sampled everything twice said there wasn’t a bad one! Thanks Andrew & Team!


Andrew’s professionalism was exceptional throughout

We engaged Andrew to cater Susan’s 40th birthday celebrations. Andrew and his team delivered an effortless, elegant party for our 35 guests, selected from Room 1-4. Our guests were delighted with the friendly, attentive service and the delicious food. Andrew’s professionalism was exceptional throughout, from conception to service on the day. Thank you Andrew and Katrina for making Susan’s 40th such a fabulous occasion! We’ll be in touch to cater our wedding 😀

Especially impressed with the manner

Standing Room Only catered for our 40 guests at my husband’s 70th birthday last Saturday. The finger food (chef Andrew) was delicious and received numerous compliments from guests. The food service was also impeccable. We were especially impressed with the manner in which Stephanie looked after those guests with special dietary requirements. It was a totally professional service all round. Andrew confirmed all details by email, and everything went exactly to plan, with the kitchen left spotless. Thank you Andrew and Stephanie.


Cannot say enough how wonderful this catering service

Cannot say enough how wonderful this catering service. We had them for our wedding on the weekend for 42 guests.

You both helped to make the night so stress free for Craig and myself. would recommend in a second.

Standing Room Only Catering one word DELICIOUS

Standing Room Only Catering one word DELICIOUS. Andrew and his waiters highly professional, food five star, refreshing to find a small business at the top of the game. Highly recommend.


Beautiful food and fantastic professional service

Andrew and his team, Albi and Mimi, recently catered for our daughter 21st we had around 60 people. We can not thank Standing Room Only enough for not only the beautiful food and fantastic professional service but for the spotless condition my kitchen was left in, it looked like no-one had been there. I’m glad we went with Andrews menu suggestions too. The food was absolutely delicious and there was so much of it, we even had left overs for lunch the next day. We would 100% recommend Standing Room Only and we will be having them back again for the next 21. Thank you so much Andrew, Albi and Mimi .

Looking forward to enjoying your amazing menu again

Thank you again for your service this past New Years Eve.

I spoke to many companies prior to selecting you. I chose you based on the confidence you instilled in me following our very first conversation. You discusses every concern and allayed all of my worries immediately. You promised no one would go hungry, the drops would ensure everyone had access and that the food would be beautifully presented. You delivered on every promise. On the night you and your staff were well presented, relaxed, efficient and ensured the event ran in the most professional manner. I cannot thank you enough for making our event run so smoothly. I would highly recommend your business and look forward to enjoying your amazing menu again.


We will continue to recommend you to our family and friend

It was without hesitation that we asked Andrew to cater for Natalie’s 50th birthday celebration.

Andrew’s superb food and Liz’s friendly and attentive service made for a memorable evening. Our guests all thought the catering was exceptional, especially the pork belly!

We will continue to recommend you to our family and friends and look forward to having you cater for our next event.

Kind regards

Philip and Natalie

I can’t thank Andrew enough for catering my 21st Casino Party

it was a huge success! Andrew was always happy to assist us with any queries we had even suggesting canapes for our guests. Our waiter, Asher, made sure our friends helping serving drinks at the bar were left food on a napkin so they didn’t miss out on any courses during the night. The nine options on the cocktail menu were amazing and there were great vegetarian options – my friends especially loved the basil and tomato pizza and the meatballs!

Asher knew all of the courses and greeted everyone – he even helped by cleaning up the used skewers and napkins throughout the night. It was wonderful for us to enjoy the party and not have to worry about the food. My family and I had a fantastic night and would definitely recommend Standing Room Only for future events!


Thank you so much for providing the catering for our office opening

Thank you so much for providing the catering for our office opening. When I was researching to find someone to cater for our function, I came across your website and it was your testimonials that lead me to make an initial enquiry with you. You contacted me immediately about how you could help us and nothing was a problem, my decision was made.

Your service was outstanding not to mention the food. We have had many compliments from clients and colleagues about the selection and quality of food and I do believe that you were an integral part of our office opening being the success it was.

I would like to make a special mention to your wait staff who were just fabulous. There was plenty of positive feedback about how special they made our guests feel on the night, again nothing was a problem.

I will certainly be recommending your company to anyone who requires a professional and quality catering company and we will definitely be using your services in the future.

Thanks again.

I had a wonderful relaxed stress free evening

Dear Andrew

Thank you for helping at my 40th – the catering was delicious, everyone commented on it and I had a wonderful relaxed stress free evening with the staff serving food and drinks.

Every time you turned around someone was at your side with a new platter. My only mistake was talking so much and missing some of the dishes as they were gobbled up! There was loads of food and I really appreciated the Chef leaving the last few tasty treats to finish up.

Would certainly use you again.



fabulous food and beverage service.

Thank you once again for a fabulous food and beverage service.

I have had so many phone calls complementing us on your work, and how great the food was and what a pleasure it was to be attended by such polite staff who knew exactly what they were doing… We cannot praise you enough – it all went off perfectly.

Thanking you once again

The kitchen was clean and tidy

Our guests loved the food, thought that the amount was great and we have given your card to a number of them. I personally think your food and service is the best we have used and certainly the best of those we have experienced at other functions. The kitchen was clean and tidy, including a very thorough job of the cooktop and splash back tiles and the oven. I expected to have to clean these as this has been my experience in the past. The great food and friendly, unobtrusive service really contributed to my enjoyment of the night.

We will certainly contact you for any future functions and will recommend you to our friends.



friendliness made the event much more enjoyable

Thank you so much for the fantastic food and service last night.

I keep hearing from people about how delightful they found your assistants – I think that their friendliness made the event much more personal and enjoyable.

I look forward to the next event for which we can ask for your help!

Kind regards,

John M

Made the event more than memorable

Standing room Only catered my 40th party and made the event more than memorable. Andrew and his team were friendly, helpful and professional. The food produced for the night was tasty, plentiful and first class. I would have no hesitation in recommending Standing Room Only for similar events.

Beautifully groomed and cooked up a storm

Dear Andrew and team,

I just wanted to say “thank you”.

On October 12 2013, your gorgeous team swept in on time, beautifully groomed and cooked up a storm for our 105 wedding guests. The food proceeded to come out promptly, it tasted divine and it was very well presented. From the moment I saw your menu, I just knew it was going to be special.

All of our contact with Andrew was delightful and professional and informative. I have had so many compliments on my choice of caterers and nearly each guest made comment on the quality and variety of the food. It was just such an amazing feat, this delicious food just kept on coming.Ours was a 1920’s Gatsby affair and Standing room only contributed to making it a magical evening.

In short, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend “Standing Room Only”, they are outstanding.
