What our clients say
Shaziana is fortunate to have worked with clients from a variety of backgrounds, on a whole host of different events. To grant you the best possible sense of the service Shaziana offers, from the consultation and planning stages right through to the event itself, we have asked a cross-section of our clients to supply testimonials. We rate our performance only on the positive feedback of our clients, and we set the highest standards for ourselves. Here you will read about our food and event design from their perspective, and so gain a finer sense of the experience you will enjoy when you appoint Shaziana to bring your ideas to life. Further, some of the varied suppliers we work with, including venues, have written testimonials for us: these will afford you another perspective on how we conduct our business.
When it came to hiring caterers for my big day, it was a no brainier to go with Shaziana. Their Food and service is far and beyond other competitors and others pale in comparison! I can't praise Samira and Saqib enough! If you want a classy and above par event, go with Shaziana all the way!!. Annan Malik - The May Fair January 2016
For my wedding I carried out extensive research into various caterers and wedding planner.s There were some major and well branded caterers on the market, however after careful examination I realized most of them if not all were focused on mass market appeal. For my wedding I wanted someone to treat my wedding as if it was their special event.
With Shaziana, I was immediately struck my their unique selling point which is they have a one person approach from inquiry through to the execution of the event, in other words the food is cooked only for your event, and not for several events.
I found Saqib and his wife to be very honest and trustworthy, which is important when you are organizing your big day. Saqib doesn't know this but I did thorough research into every aspect of my wedding and I am very confident I got a good deal and a top quality event.
All my guests (who are generally fussy) could not compliment the food enough, the presentation and the quality was fantastic. Shaziana has an amazing attention to detail. I couldn't recommend Shaziana more, they made my day. Imran Nazir - Le Meridien February 2016
Looking to organise a wedding? Shaziana is the only place to go to. For me personally, Shaziana has been an absolute God send! I can't speak highly enough of this professional and bespoke business that caters to the needs of each individual. Throughout my wedding planning process, Samira (who is one of the directors) literally held my hand and helped guide me to organise the biggest day of my life and I can't thank her enough! The standards that are upheld at Shaziana are second to none and I don't believe that there is another buisness out there that will offer the true dedication that they do. Amal El-Banaoui - Radisson Blu Portman March 2016
Dearest Samira, Your dedication, patience and etiquette throughout organisation of our special day will never be forgotten. Thank you for everything throughout our journey. Our endless gratitude will remain yours. Rukhsana (Mum) & Sanah (Bride) Kelham Hall February 2016
We would like to extend a special thank you to Saqib and the Shaziana team for a truly magical dining experience. Myself and wife Aliya along with our guests were treated to some unique and delicious delights!
From the amazing lunch to the spectacular drinks reception and absolutely delicious dinner, we could not fault Shaziana’s excellent service. The attention to detail and personal touch was perfection.
I cannot recommend Shaziana enough. Looking forward to using Shaziana again in the future, hoping the mango and mint sorbet will still be on the menu!

Hats off to one of the best caterers have ever experienced, compliments to Saqib & Samira who ensured our event ran perfectly!! - Froyle Park
I just wanted to drop you a quick email to thank you for everything you
did on our big day.
The service provided was exemplary, the staff were courteous and went
above and beyond to make our day even more special.
And the food... wow!! It is still the talking point of the wedding!
Everyone has said how fantastic the food quality was, many have not been
able to eat an Indian takeaway since for fear of disappointment!
My final thanks of course go to you Saqib. Having looked back on the
wedding I can see how hard you worked to pull everything together and to
meet our requests. For this, and for all the preparation you put in I
truly cannot thank you enough.
I would not hesitate to recommend Shaziana in the future.
Thank you again and all the best.

On behalf of family and friends, I would like thank SHAZIANA for the exeptional delivery of the two recent events at Sheraton Park Lane Hotel and Hilton Paddington. Everybody enjoyed the excellent food and service. I have heard nothing but complimentary comments about the quality, quantity of food and efficient service. Food was hot and tasty and extremely well presented. You have done an excellent job and nothing other than good things being said about Shaziana by those who all attended!!
I wish you and SHAZIANA every success in future and hope you carry on with the excellent work.
In addition, I appreciate your flexibility and willingness to help at every opportunity.

Recently my son and daughter got married. Their weddings were one month apart. For both weddings I had catering through Shaziana. I was so apprehensive even after a lot of assurance from Saqib. All the time, I had these questions going through my mind: will they deliver? Will there be enough staff, will the food be just the same as at tasting etc. Everything was just as Saqib had said. Now, I look back and think unbelievable. Thank you Saqib and Shaziana. - Selsdon Park Hotel & Spa

We have been providing services to weddings and events for nearly 3 decades and I can honestly say that amongst all of the many caterers that we have worked within that time, Shaziana have consistantly been the stand out first choice when it comes to hospitality, service and fine food. The service and offerings come with a personal touch, are always of a high standard with certain originality and bespoke uniqueness that others just can't duplicate.

I wanted to also convey my hugest gratitude and thanks for the amazing hosting you did for us last Sunday! Your organisation was impeccable, the service from your team was truly the best.
I’d like to thank you also for the absolutely delicious food! We have had nothing but compliments from all our family and friends saying how much they enjoyed everything from the cocktail drink and the canapes (my favourites!!), to the dinner menu, and especially the dessert (absolutely everybody said they loved the pomegranate mango meringue mess!!). And of course, thank you so much for accommodating all the late arriving guests and making sure everybody was appropriately fed and watered!!
Thank you for everything Samira, all your guidance and advice, for making the whole process of wedding planning so seamless and for all your time and effort spent in answering our endless questions before the valima, and for ensuring we and all our guests had a truly spectacular day and enjoyed every part of the event! You are such a star!
I wish all you and Shaziana all the best for a bright and successful future!
Hope this email finds you well.
We just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you for all of your hard work in the lead up to our wedding on the 17th August. We really enjoyed the food ourselves and so many people commented that the food was delicious. We saw lots of guests getting seconds and trying everything!
