Thai Buffet Catering

In the past 15 years, the Thai population in America has doubled and with that, the popularity of Thai cuisine has risen! You might be thinking to yourself “Sure, but every Thai restaurant I’ve been to is ostensibly the same” and it might surprise you to find that there is a reason for that! In the early 2000s, the Thai government started a campaign to popularize and standardize Thai flavors throughout the world as well as stimulate tourism to their country. They trained chefs then sent them far and wide to open their own restaurants and bring the complex flavors of Thai cuisine to the masses. A now familiar blend of exotic spices, spicy chilies and peanut garnishes over hearty noodle and rice dishes are sure to bring a smile to your entire team’s face!

Our Menus

CaterCow is all about convenience! We design our menus to make it easy for you. Thai buffets make it even more simple, typically consisting of a number of proteins and either noodle or rice bases to choose from. When ordering for your team, you’ll have options to suit everyone's dietary needs.

Best Practices and Tips when Ordering Thai Buffet

Best Practices and Tips when Ordering Thai Buffet

CaterCow Thai packages are likely to include a protein such as chicken, beef or tofu and an entree base such as noodles (i.e. pad thai, drunken noodle or pad kee mao, pad see ew), fried rice (i.e. basil fried rice, pineapple fried rice), curries (i.e. green curry, red curry, yellow curry), and stir-fries (pad eggplant, pad string beans). It’s important to remember that bases such as noodles or fried rice will not come with additional white rice but curries and stir fries will!

How Much Should I Order?

How Much Should I Order?

We strongly suggest that you order food for more people than are in your party for buffet-style catering. The reason is that often times people toward the front of the line tend to take more food than they mean to because it looks like so much is available. But restaurants are portioning a specific amount per person and anyone who takes extra might be leaving someone else without lunch. To avoid this, we recommend ordering 10-15% higher than your headcount or taking advantage of the "extra protein" option when available! Everyone has a different idea of what a "full portion" looks like. It's better to be safe than hungry!

What does "pad" mean anyway?

What does "pad" mean anyway?

When it comes to Thai cuisine, there are plenty of dishes that come with the word "pad" in them. Pad Thai is one of these dishes, and "pad" simply means "fried" as pad Thai is a stir-fried noodle dish. Interestingly, "pad Thai" is not even Thai in origin but instead a Chinese noodle-based stir fry that was infused with traditional Thai flavors.

Frequently Asked Questions
