What Our Clients Say

I have worked with many other catering companies, Al Hamra street catering is exceptional and on time. Highly recommended. Thank you Ali for making it very easy, on top of that, delivering a beautiful setup and sumptuous canapes, salad and sweets, you gave all of us a “SMILE”. My favorites are the canape shrimp & avocado hummos .

Everything was amazing! The food tasted great and I didn't hear one bad thing from our guests. This couldn't say anything bad! There was plenty of food and people definitely got enough! I would recommend them to anyone looking for a unique and different type of dinner at your private gathering or event.
PR Director
If you're in the least bit concerned about menu offerings, pricing, or how much food you need to order, simply call and speak directly with Ali (the owner). Within 5 minutes of talking on the phone with him I was assured that everything was in good hands. The food packaging fits the Dubai outdoor weather, all food and beverage items were prepared fresh, packed and transported hygienically.
