Made fresh from the finest, locally sourced fresh ingredients, our chefs make the tastiest meals you wish you had the time to cook yourself. Once we've batch cooked our delicious meals, we snap freeze them, which locks in all the goodness and flavour so it can be delivered to your front door.

Just take from the freezer the meals you need, as you need them. You won't be throwing out a truckload of food anymore.

We do create our resh salads on a daily basis and these would be stored in your fridge. The fresh salad greens have a shelf life of 4-5 days.

Nothing fake on our menu - just a range of authentic flavoured dishes that draw inspiration from Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, Asian and Western cuisines. You are sure to find something to tempt your tastebuds. But there's no need to believe us - see our customer reviews for yourself!

With something to suit everyone, in fact, over 150 options are on our menu. Including complete meals for one, mains for two, family sized meals, finger food for entertaining, desserts, side dishes and even a fully Christmas menu so you can enjoy the festive season without all the hassle!
