This is one of its kind where the food is spread among different stations in the reception space and cooked live by chefs. The food is prepared fresh and is generally of a size that one serving can be finished in two to three bites or a bit more varying to your select. You can also add some cook-to-order stations where the picky eaters can instruct the chef on how they would like the dish to be prepared. You will need a huge reception space but your guests will surely appreciate the wide variety of dishes.
