Say ‘hello’ to Chao's Catering Services

Vietnamese Cuisine Catering in Sydney

A Tale of Two Sisters

This is the story of two sisters with a passion for food and culinary experiences, each with respected Vietnamese restaurants in Sydney. When Emma Nguyen (our very own I Love Pho) and Jessica Nguyen (La Sen Restaurant) decided to join forces, what emerged was a catering service with a focus on delivering honest-to-goodness Vietnamese food at restaurant quality.

Through our corporate jobs, we saw how catering food is served at the various meetings and events we had attended and noticed how food caterers do not necessarily address specific dietary needs of their customers or clients. Our restaurant customers also express how they love our food so much and even order takeaway food to enjoy at their homes.

Chao Catering works with their clients in making sure that our Vietnamese catering is aligned with their client’s budget and dietary needs. Chao Catering believes that great and healthy Vietnamese food can be greatly appreciated and enjoyed even through these corporate events and cocktail nights, beyond the Vietnamese Noodle Soup we know as Pho.

CHAO means “Hello”

Chao in Vietnamese means “Hello” in English. A simple phrase that makes our catering services in Sydney special and personal. Essentially, our Vietnamese food catering business is literally a way for us to greet our clients, their first experience of what authentic and healthy Vietnamese food tastes like. This is also our small way of influencing people to learn more about our culture through Vietnamese food and simple greetings like ‘Chao!’.
