Bringing the unique taste of Thailand to your home, office or event.

Kanum Catering

In Thailand, food forms a central part of any social occasion, and vice versa. That is, food often becomes the social occasion in itself, or reason to celebrate. This is partly due to the friendly, social nature of Thai people, but also because of the way in which food is ordered and eaten in Thailand. With our dedicated Thai staff, Kanum would like to present that sense of occasion for you with our Thai banqueting service. In Western culture, a “normal” restaurant meal consists of a starter followed by the main course and dessert, with each individual ordering only for him or herself. In Thailand, there is no such thing as a starter; neither is there any dish that belongs only to one person. As a general rule, Thai diners order the same number of dishes as people present; however, all dishes are shared and enjoyed together. For this reason, it is better to have many guests at the table rather than just one or two. In fact, many Thais believe that eating alone is bad luck.

A typical Thai meal will consist of the four flavours sweet, sour, spicy and salty and many Thais would not be satisfied with a meal if all four flavours are not represented. When eating, a group of Thai diners would share a variety of meat and/or fish dishes, plus vegetables, a noodle dish, and possibly also soup. Dessert may consist simply of fresh fruit, such as pineapple, or something more exotic, such as colourful rice cakes, depending on the region. All of our unique dishes are prepared by qualified Thai chefs using meats traceable directly to the farm. And like all authentic Thai food, our food is virtually fat free and made using no MSG.

We at Kanum can cater for any event for between 10-500 people. There are many options to choose from. Whether you would like to have a Thai chef and server on site, Main courses delivered for you to serve yourself or platters of finger food (as below) we can cater for all!
