A well cooked meal at home is healthier than a take away.

Say you Made it, Sahar Adil
Description: Home catering
Contact: +91 8041128555
Facebook: SayYouMadeIt
Her story:
sayyoumadeitNo need to panic. Just call us, place your order, (atleast 24 hours in advance), collect it, serve it, and then just “Say You Made It”. Simple. We take home catering orders for 4-40 people (and in the vicinity). We specialize in customized menu’s of our dishes which are mostly signature, which vary from a European-Mediterranean menu to the Indian delicacies that have been in our family for generations now. So for family dinners, shindigs with your friends, laid back potlucks, fun birthdays and even elegant corporate soirees we can really create a nice menu for and bring a difference to.

Since we couldn’t decide what we love more, eating or cooking for our family and friends, the stars conveniently aligned on the marriage of the two – and so “Say You Made It” was born. So every-time you don’t want to cook, but need to just give us a call, ‘ cause “you keep the credit, we’ll take the orders.” :)
