My wife and I planned to get married on May 2019 and after being disappointed when looking for dinner options on a tight budget, we found the Southern Spit Roast & BBQ just a few months before the event. We selected the menu and contacted the team to confirm availability. A few more email and we were all set for the event. The team hosted our wedding dinner and we could have not asked for more. The variety of the dishes, presentation of the food, the customer service, the timing between the dishes, everything was perfect. I definitely recomend them, we took a chance based on the good reviews and I am happy to say that we took the right decision.

We recently got married and reached out to Southern Spit Roast to cater for us. The whole team have been just incredible to work with. From being able to answer the multiple questions at my end, to being so flexible after we had to change everything with covid and the whole team was so friendly. The food was incredible, in fact, everyone was raving about the food, it was delicious. We could not get over how much food there was, the portion sizes were so generous and we had dinner sorted for a few days afterwards. We would definitely recommend going with Southern Spit Roast and will be keeping the team in mind for any future events.

Fantastic to deal with, turned up and in the background quietly set up. They called us when ready and the food was incredible, so much of it! We all met the next day for a lunch as so much was left. Everyone enjoyed the food especially the roasted pork it was exquisite the beef however was overcooked and tough unfortunately but did not deter from all the rest which was beautiful. I would highly recommend this company, so good and easy to deal with Thank you.

I would like to thank the Southern Spit Roast & BBQ team for providing a delicious and substantial meal for my daughter’s 21st birthday last night. Our 50 guests were very impressed with the spread and enjoyed the dinner immensely judging by all the compliments. The caterer was very pleasant, efficient and unobtrusive and did a wonderful job. The portions were generous and we look forward to dining out on Southern Spit BBQ for the rest of this week, possibly longer. I am delighted to recommend this company to others looking for an Auckland caterer at a reasonable price with wonderful food and close attention to customer service.

Just want to say a huge thank you to Graham and Shelly for making our event so successful. The food was so easy to organise, service was friendly and helpful and everything was perfect and on time. We have had amazing feedback from our friends and family about the food we ordered (ham/pork, beef and lamb) - the ham as a particular hit , the lamb was beautiful and even the gravy received lots of comments. The staff we dealt with were all incredibly professional and friendly. I highly recommend using Southern Spit Roast & BBQ - great value for money and they made our experience really easy and positive.- THANK YOU!

These guys did an excellent job right from the initial phone contact through to supplying the catering for our wedding last Saturday. It was enjoyed by all, even the vegetarians who were delighted to have such a wide selection to choose from. We have only had compliments on how lovely it was and we thought the set up and service was exceptional. So much going on for us, it was awesome how you just went about your business with no distruption with great friendly staff and we loved the meal and of course the succulent meat selection. We are so pleased we chose the right company for the job as they provided a memorable meal for all! Perfect.

We hired Southern Spit Roast & BBQ Catering to cater for our nephew's wedding 2 weeks ago, which was located in a very remote area. Organising the food with Shelley was a breeze. Two staff arrived exactly on time and were very professional and courteous. The food was in abundance and delicious and served at the agreed time. After the meal the staff cleaned and packed up in an unobtrusive manner. We would like to highly recommend Southern Spit Roast & BBQ Catering.

Fantastic customer focused service. Delicious food. I had a late order of hot food for my sister in law's wake. Shelley and team responded quickly even though it was ANZAC Day. The food was delivered on time in polystyrene boxes at 7pm and they were still hot after 9pm. Thanks so much Shelley.

Thank you to the staff that handled my enquiry from the start, always happy to help and answer any questions. Making it easy for me to organise from over in Australia. I always felt like I made the right decision to go with SSR for our catering. The service on the day was amazing, the food was AMAZING, there was so much food left over it was also great they left that for us in the fridge. The price is so affordable for the quality of food and service you get! Thank you so much to the team for helping make our day perfect - Tony & Amber x

We used Southern Spit Roast to cater our Christmas work function for 60 people. Despite our initial excitement at the ease of ordering from what looked like a great menu, this rapidly faded when our food was delivered over 3 hours early. We were assured that the containers would keep the food warm and cold, but our meats were lukewarm (at best), cut bread loaves were stale, and the hot, buttered potatoes didn't even turn up! It was a decidedly average dinner for our team and the overall feeling was one of disappointment - although dessert was quite yummy! We passed our feedback onto the company via email and they have offered an apology and are looking into the problems which has brought this review up from being a single star.

I just want to say thank you to you and your team for the amazing job you did at our wedding a few weeks back. The food was amazing and everyone raved out it. Again thank you so much and we will definitely recommend your company to everyone I can possibly recommend to 😊
