Frequently Asked Questions
I have tried to provide answers to many of the questions you may have about booking your dinner party and choosing the dishes for your group. If there is anything you need clarification for, which is not listed below, then please contact me and I will try to help you create your perfect evening.
HOW DO I BOOK A MEAL?
Alternatively, you can call me on 07768 808249 or send an email to Thai Kitchen in Lakeland.
WHAT IS THE COST?
The minimum cost for a booking is £304, which relates to the minimum group of eight people.
However, should your party have less than eight guests, I can still come to cook for you, but I will still need to charge the minimum cost of £304.
HOW DO I CHOOSE THE DISHES?
There are two options: a seven course and a nine course option; select either of these.
Then select three starters, four main course dishes and, if you have chosen the nine course option, also two dessert dishes.
Once you have completed your selections proceed to the checkout page to finalise your booking.
DO I NEED TO PAY A DEPOSIT?
I will always attempt to contact you first before releasing your booking to another group, although as most requests for a booking require an immediate response, I cannot guarantee that your booking will not be lost while I await your reply.
It is important, once you have confirmed your booking, that you send the deposit within 24 hours.
HOW MUCH DOES THE MEAL COST?
The 7 course option is a choice of three starters and four main course and costs £38 per head.
The 9 course option is a choice of three starters, four main course and two dessert and costs £41 per head.
Thai meals are slightly different from western meals, as the food is served in dishes and placed on the table for all to share. So when I serve your food I serve enough for the number of guests in the group.
HOW DO I PAY?
The balance is payable on the night in cash / card, or prior to the booking by online banking or cheque.
Cheques for the balance must be sent a least seven days in advance of the date of your booking.
ALLERGIES & DIETARY REQUIREMENTS
DO YOU CATER FOR VEGETARIANS?
Dishes that are suitable for vegetarians are marked with (V) next to the description.
I will cook separate dishes for vegetarians, should they request this.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?
I provide everything. I prepare the table, supply all the cutlery and crockery. Afterwards I will clean up, wash up, and leave your kitchen spotless.
All you need to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy the time with your friends.
DO YOU CATER FOR CHILDREN?
I can make separate dishes for children, if they do not like the spicier, adult food.
Please let me know the number and ages of children in your group.
HOW FAR DO YOU TRAVEL?
I can travel outside Cumbria by special arrangement. Please contact me should you require this.
HOW CAN I LEAVE A REVIEW?
I am happy to receive your comments and reviews about your meal. You can leave these on my Google+ page, my Facebook page and on my Twitter feed. At present I cannot receive comments on Trip Advisor, due to the nature of my business.
You can also leave comment at Bark.com and also on our page at NCASS.
After your meal I offer you the opportunity to leave comments in my guest book. We may also take photographs / video of your meal with your permission.
Again, with your permission, your comments and our images may be used on our website, Facebook page and Twitter posts. If you do not wish this, please opt-out of this on the reservations page.
WHICH DAYS DO YOU ACCEPT BOOKINGS?
There is a surcharge of 20% for bookings on New Year’s Eve.
