We have a standardized price for the various dishes shown on the menu. Our Price is determined by current market conditions of transportation cost and prices of foodstuff (production cost). Therefore, prices may be reviewed intermittently and agreed upon through consultation and dialogue with our clients if market determinants of prices change over time.

However, customers who are unable to meet the price offered may be given a negotiating chance to provide them with meals that will suit their proposed budgets and taste. In order to maintain a satisfied client base, we have designed a price structure that is differentiated to accommodate various levels of affordability. Undoubtedly, you can count on the kindness of our fee structure. It is, however, our passion for great food and commitment to excellence that makes us the ideal service provider to partner with you for your next event!
