"Nothing brings people together like fantastic food"

Catering for your success

Welcome to The Kitchen c/o SKYCITY, New Zealand’s premier catering service.
We have a passion for innovative food and spectacular service. It’s that simple.
And with a hard-earned reputation for commitment, our extremely capable team can deliver, every time. 

So no matter what you’re planning, plan for fantastic food.


Our menus are designed to delight and entertain your guests.
We use only fresh produce, locally sourced wherever possible, and always with an added touch of New Zealand inspiration. And because our chefs are among Auckland’s finest, they keep track of globally trending food styles and use all their culinary flair to provide you with food that’s as memorable as it is delicious.

Dishes that inspire

Whatever style of catering you have in mind; we’ll help bring your ideas to life with exceptional dishes tailored to your taste and budget. From our comprehensive range of menu items, to the way you’d like everything served – right down to how it’s presented – you name it, we can do it.

Here are some examples to fire your imagination:
Fine dining
Traditional seated three-course dinners, as formal or informal as you wish.
Shared dining
Interactive food stations, or walk n’ forks as they’re also known.
Public events
Pop-up stands with smart gourmet takeaway food.
Interactive service
From cooked to order Laksa stations, to cut to order sashimi, to oysters freshly shucked and presented in a dinghy, to an ice-cream station where your ice-cream and toppings get smashed and folded into a gooey mess of deliciousness.
Cooking stations
Make a splash with a showpiece – like an ice wall full of salmon.

Excellent service

Whatever we’re serving, our staff are part of the experience too. We’re equally at home in polos and shorts at casual get-togethers, or in our number ones to serve at your high-end events. Should you need them, we’re not afraid to bring the theatrics either – whatever you prefer to make your event memorable.

The capability to deliver

We have the infrastructure to deliver what and when we say we will. As part of SKYCITY we have one of the biggest on-site kitchens in New Zealand, tested logistics and a huge inventory to draw on, as well as all the personnel and experienced staff to deliver.

Catering that comes to you

When it comes to catering, we’re totally mobile. In fact we love a challenge and we’re happy to join you wherever you are. Whether your preferred location is in a marquee on a beach, at a sporting event, in your business’ building, at a public event with a pop-up stall or a food truck, or even in your own backyard – we’ll be there. We’re also preferred suppliers at a number of iconic Auckland venues including the Auckland Museum, St Matthews in-the-City, the ASB Showgrounds and Shed 10.

We’re passionate about what we do, and we’d love to work with you on your next event. To discuss your requirements, please give us a call on +64 9 363 6070.
