Some Kind Words From Happy Clients

21st BIRTHDAY PARTY – In Home Catering Sunshine Coast for 100 guests

We recently had Santosh cater for a 21st with 100 guests. He offered plenty of choices before we finalised the menu. He spent time ensuring different dietary requirements were catered for in the lead up to the party. The food was tasty and plentiful, essential for a 21st. His attention to detail, friendly and professional presentation were excellent. The food helped contribute to a memorable 21st which was held at our home.

DOCTOR’S DINNER – Corporate Dinner Party Sunshine Coast

I was so impressed with Santosh to look after our Visiting Doctors!!

You took such care in planning our menu and happily substituted ingredients to accommodate our tastes and suggested a unique menu for the night. I would highly recommend Santosh from Talking Turkey if you are looking for something different for a special corporate dinner.

MUM’S SURPRISE BIRTHDAY PARTY – Sunshine Coast Catering for special events at Sunshine Beach Qld


My family recently shared a wonderful special night to remember while on holiday in Noosa. We were there to celebrate my mum’s birthday and upon rave recommendations from a friend, we decided to arrange a surprise dinner party with our personal chef Santosh. As our parents were soon to travel to India we chose an Indian Banquet as the theme.

His passion for food was obvious, his friendly nature and laugh infectious, and his talent slowly unfolded.

We would thoroughly recommend Santosh for a dining experience in the comfort of your own holiday accommodation or home.

HUSBAND’S 60th BIRTHDAY PARTY – Catering for Sunshine Coast celebration


I engaged Santosh from Talking Turkey to provide catering at my husband’s 60th birthday celebration in March 2014. What a great decision that turned out to be! At our initial meeting Santosh ascertained how we would be conducting the evening. He then made suggestions regarding menu selection, staffing, and other helpful ideas. When I asked “What do you need from me?” he replied “Just the Kitchen and some fridge space”.

For beautiful, freshly prepared, creative and tasty cuisine at very reasonable pricing I can highly recommend Talking Turkey for your next function. I know I will be using him for ours!

SEAFOOD DEGUSTATION – Birthday Celebration Sunshine Coast


I contacted Talking Turkey with a request for a private dinner to celebrate a milestone birthday for my husband. I had thought a 3 course meal would be sufficient, but Santosh recommended a ‘Degustation Menu’ as something different for such a special occasion. A couple of weeks prior to the booking, Santosh visited me in our home and we went through a comprehensive list of dishes and eventually compiled a ‘Seafood’ themed menu. The evening was a great success, my husband was thrilled and every dish was individual with a range of fresh flavours.

PRIVATE CHEF SURPRISE ON MOTHER’S DAY AT MOOLOOLABA My family was privileged, thanks to my son’s organisation, to have Santosh from Talking Turkey prepare an unforgettable culinary experience on Mother’s Day at our home in Mooloolaba. I had no idea this was happening until the doorbell rang and Santosh arrived with numerous boxes containing everything required to prepare the 10 course degustation menu we were going to enjoy. I even got to help with some of the prep and learn a few tricks of the trade. Every course was to die for – from the combination of flavors to the amazing presentation – there was nothing that could be faulted. Leanne Taylor - Mooloolaba

HUSBAND’S 70th BIRTHDAY – Memorable Celebration Sunshine Coast

Santosh, where to begin. Right from the first meeting with you I felt we were on to an absolute winner. A fantastic way to celebrate my husband’s 70th birthday with family and friends. I could just set the table and then relax. The food you served was first class. Then after it was all over everyone was so satisfied and thought it a fantastic evening. Thanks so much, value for money for sure.

GIRLS WEEKEND – Special Dinner Party Noosa,Sunshine Coast


I and my girlfriends had a special “girls weekend” on the coast in December 2014. This time we decided to hire a private chef instead of going out for dinner. Santosh was so professional right from the start. He tailored the night to our requirements and made the night so memorable. Loved it so much and will remember it forever. The food was out of this world!

My 38th birthday celebration September 2015

Is one I will remember forever. Chef Santosh designed a mouth-watering menu that complimented the Moroccan theme beautifully. The setting was lovely – Moroccan lanterns, lavish fabrics, exotic spicy cocktails, flavoured shisha tobacco, happy guests and a fire under the stars in the orchard.  But it was the food that really added that something special. Santosh created with love the most delicious course of Moroccan canapés including antipasti platters of bread, olives, hummus, tzatziki and cheese followed by dukkha crusted lamb, chermoula spiced fish, beef kebab, and fish and chickpea tagine with minted couscous. Dessert was Turkish delight filo cigars. It was absolutely divine. Thank you Santosh for making my night. I am truly grateful for your creative offerings and five star services.

To celebrate combined birthdays and a wedding anniversary

We were fortunate enough to be the winning bid at a Charity Event and take away the grand prize of a Degustation dinner for 8 guests!

Well there are not enough words that can express just how impressed we and all our guests were with Santosh! The food is defiantly worthy of any ‘hat’ restaurant and Santosh was very kind to accommodate us with the menu! When the 8th course hit the table it really was the icing on the cake! All our friends constantly talk about the wonderful food, professionalism of Santosh and his wait staff, well done!

We are at the age where gifts are no longer necessary for milestones and we can not recommend a night or day with Santosh as your private chef enough, we will defiantly be hosting another dinner party with Santosh!
