Services

These Terms & Conditions refer to our event catering and food experiences and were updated in June 2020.

Your Information

Mandira’s Kitchen strictly adheres to all current GDPR regulations and all data collated from each client or enquiry will be stored in the correct manner and not disclosed to any other party. Please see our privacy policy for more information.

Event Pricing/Quotes

All quotes for catering events are valid for a 12-month period. Should a client wish to confirm a booking more than 12 months from the date of the initial quote, this may be subject to a change in pricing. Mandira’s Kitchen pricing is reviewed annually and we reserve the right to change/update menu pricing as and when we see fit.

Event Confirmation

Once the client confirms acceptance of an estimate for their event, this becomes a contractual agreement. All Terms and Conditions must be read and understood by the client as this is the basis of the contractual agreement with Mandira’s Kitchen upon confirmation of booking.

Event Payment

Upon confirmation of booking, an invoice will be raised for a non-refundable deposit of 25% of the gross balance. Once the deposit is paid, the booking and date is confirmed with Mandira’s Kitchen. At this point, a proforma invoice will be also be issued which will show full details of the booking, as per the quote agreed.

Final details will be collated approximately 4 weeks prior to the event date, and these must be confirmed no later than 2 weeks prior to the event date, at which point a final invoice will be issued and the balance due in full no later than a week prior to the event date. The client is responsible for all final details and the settlement of the account, with any queries regarding the invoice being raised immediately. Please note, no refunds will be given for any decrease in numbers once final details have been agreed and the final balance paid.

Event Cancellation

Any cancellation should be advised in writing to Mandira’s Kitchen as soon as possible. All deposit payments are non-refundable and this payment will be retained by Mandira’s Kitchen.  If the client cancels an event with less than 6 weeks’ notice, we reserve the right to charge the client for 50% of the invoice.  If the event is cancelled with less than a week’s notice, the invoice must be paid in full.  Non-payment prior to any event may be taken as a cancellation and the charges above will be applied accordingly.  Mandira’s Kitchen may take the decision to cancel an event should the client be in arrears of payment or be in breach of any of our Terms and Conditions.

Menus

Each event we cater for is planned with the client and we will do our best to accommodate all dietary requirements.  It is the client’s responsibility to inform Mandira’s Kitchen of any changes to the menu or any additional requests 2 weeks before the event.

Access/Set Up

Mandira’s Kitchen will require reasonable access to the area of the event in order to deliver, set up and collect our equipment. If additional labour is required (eg access across lawns to marquees during wet weather), we reserve the right to make a charge for this. Any access issues are to be advised in advance of the event.

Damage or loss

The client is responsible for any damage, breakages, or loss of any property both belonging to Mandira’s Kitchen, or hired for the client’s function, however caused, and will be charged at the full replacement value. This applies to the period between delivery and collection.

Mandira’s Kitchen Food Experiences

Clients who have booked our cookery lessons, supper clubs, spice tours or any other food events are obliged to inform us in advance of any dietary requirements and where possible we will try and accommodate them.  We adhere to strict food hygiene standards, and clients are obliged to inform us of any sickness bug within 48 hours of a cookery lesson.  If necessary we will book the client onto an alternative lesson.  In the unlikely event that we have to cancel the lesson, we will refund the client or book them onto an alternative lesson.

Force Majeure

Mandira’s Kitchen will accept no liability for the failure to perform any obligations due to strike, lockout, hostilities or any other circumstances beyond our control. No liability is accepted for loss, damage or consequential loss caused by any failure to perform our obligations (whether due to negligence by us, our employees or sub-contractors, or other due causes), but this does not exclude liability for death or personal injury as required by law.
