“I would like to thank Malcolm for his kind donation of a selection of pizza’s to our medic team covering Motocross at the recent South Waikato Motorcycle Club rounds. The team really enjoyed the pizzas. Your pizzas have a great balance of crisp base with a generous amount of toppings.

Customer Reviews

Read some of the feedbacks left for Hazel Hayes:

“One of our favourite Hamilton cafes, food and service always consistently high standard. And in case you’re wondering, the 2 for 1 chicken burger promo is genuine and 100% . We thought because we were getting “2 for 1″ something might have been skimped on or left out, but we are happy to say it was everything it should be and more. Will spend the rest of the day remembering the deliciousness…..until next time Hazel Hayes, hopefully very soon.”

“We had Hazel Hayes cater one of work events, and what a superb job they did! The service was excellent, the food was beautifully presented and most importantly… it tasted amazing! All of our attendees (and staff) were raving about the catering throughout the event after. Would definitely recommend! ?”

BEST FOR Authentic Thai Food
SERVICES CateringMains



ADDRESS Caltex Dinsdale Hamilton Whatawhata Road

[email protected]


OPERATING HOURS Wednesday-Saturday 4pm-8pm

Sawadee Thai Food is a Thai food truck that is able to both deliver and serve authentic Asian dishes along the Caltex Dinsdale Hamilton Whatawhata Road from Wednesdays to Saturdays.

What we like about their food is that it is always full of flavor and rich in nutrients due to its jam-packed vegetable dishes. However, there lacks equally authentic Thai drinks which could have been better to complete the whole experience.

From mains to sides, they have a complete selection of dishes to choose from that are equally rice-based, sauce-based and the like to so that customer can choose whatever they feel up for at the moment.

The menu is thoroughly explained on their website so that customers know what to expect once they order the food and use it as reference as well.

Though they aren’t available from Sunday to Tuesday, we recommend them for customers looking for a Thai cuisine experience at a different setting but with the same set of delectable flavors and equal attention to customer service.


  • Accommodates catering
  • Reasonably priced meals
  • Authentic dishes

And that’s the end of our list of the top services for the best catering in Hamilton. With their superb food and catering services, you don’t have to worry about hosting an exciting and enjoyable event.
