Shambhu’s has catered for Animal Aid on a number of occasions – most notably at our Christmas Fayre in Kensington Town Hall, but also on a smaller scale for a function at HQ.  Mahersh and Nishma are a joy to work with and they are true friends of Animal Aid.  Their vegan dishes are scrumptious and a delight – especially their wonderful “cheesecakes”!  Their service is exemplary and the range of dishes offered superb.  We cannot recommend them highly enough.

We at PETA always look forward to ‘Shambhu Day’, the day in the week we get special delicious treats delivered to our doorstep. I try to order a new tasty Shambhu dish each week of the month, though I fail to sometimes because I’m addicted to the burrito.
Poorva Joshipura, Director, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) UK

Janet Davies, Harrow Coeliac Group (north-west London)

“Your food is very tasty and very enjoyable. I particularly like the mixed berries cheesecake which is really great and perhaps one of the best tofu cheesecakes you'll find in London.”
Brian Jacobs, Hypnotic Solutions

“Thanks again for providing such good food for my grandmother's funeral. Friends and family had many good words about the catering. We had a very mixed group of older neighbours, friends as well as grandchildren and their partners. There was something for everyone and the food certainly encouraged people to stay after the service to talk and share memories of Phyllis.”
Dr Alina Congreve (Hertfordshire)

“We had a remembrance event at home last weekend in memory of my grandfather who passed away 10 years ago. Heena had prepared a delicious totally-vegan meal and the desserts you delivered to us made the meal even more special. It was a fun evening with the family and EVERYBODY loved the vegan desserts we ordered from you, especially the cheesecake.”
Suraj Shah, north-west London

“Since I've found out about Shambhu’s, I haven’t missed a single one of their deliveries. The selection of food is diverse as well as tasty. I love not having to worry about where the food comes from or how it got on my plate - it’s vegan, organic, and fair-trade! I’ve tried something different on the menu each time and am always satisfied (the chocolate fudge cake, however, I’ve ordered a couple times now). I’m always looking forward to the day when Shambhu’s gets delivered to my office.”
Eva Kwolek, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) UK

“I have tucked into lots of rich and creamy paneer (and, when I was non-vegetarian, chicken) dishes in my lifetime, and I enjoyed your vegan version.”
“Just want to thank you for the wonderful food, and especially for the chocolate fudge cake which was just like a rich, decadent brownie – I really missed my mother when I was eating it, because she’s a chocoholic and would have loved it too!”
Ratika Dayani, Postgraduate, London School of Economics (LSE)

Everyone loved your food (it was voted the best out of the three days!) - the cheesecake was particularly popular but all of it was really good.
Carla Owen, PA To The Chief Executive, British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection (BUAV)

The vegetable biryani was delicious - that’s a keeper!
Client based near Swiss Cottage, London (UK)

Duncan Armour, City (central London)

“Their supply of vegan flapjacks was truly invaluable in helping to keep us going during this challenge.”
“Their vegan cheesecake is also to die for, so we are now trying to work out which mountain we need to climb to be sponsored with cheesecake!”
Andrew Knight

“The tofu tikka masala was superb - just what I was hoping for; a veggie version of the Indian classic that we can never eat.”
“The new [lemon & coconut] cheesecake is a triumph - I could eat that all day. I eat cheesecake with milk (cheese) in it, but yours beats any ‘real’ cheesecake I've ever eaten (and I've eaten plenty).”
Deepak Shah, Head Teacher, Mathscool

“I just want to say thank you for the lovely Samosas on Saturday. They tasted really wonderful and everyone was pleased with them. You delivered on time and it was a pleasure doing business with you.”
Larna Bernard, Battersea (central London)

“I've been eating your food for three weeks continuous and I must say it has been very satisfying. The fragrant rice I had today was a pleasant surprise too. On other days I bring my food from home but the weekly Shambhu's delivery is becoming a treat now.”

Deek Good, Supported Housing Team Leader, Westminster Mind

“Just thought I would let you know that your food went down really well with the people we had over and especially my boss who was celebrating her birthday.
I think the only downside was that we hadn’t ordered enough as that was how popular the food was.
I am sure I will definitely be using you again.”
Tunde Ogungbayi, Pulse Group (central London)

“The sandwiches were devoured and everyone loved them! Thank you so much for providing such wonderful food.”
Catherine Long, Artist (central London)

“OMG... i just had the chocolate and orange cheesecake for breakfast
Anabel Zaldivar, Raw Veda

“Awesome doesn't capture how good that cheesecake was!!!! Probably the best one I have ever eaten; I can't believe it's vegan! How did you do that? It's also by a long shot the best vegan cake in general I've ever had; most of them taste as if there's something missing, but yours disappeared faster than you could say Jack Robinson and we were looking at each other and wished we'd bought two :-).”
Manuela Hübner, MARBLous ART (Cambridge)

“Thank you for all you have done to help us organise the catering for our event.”

Ireene-Sointu, The Movement for Compassionate Living

“I just wanted to say an enormous thank you for the wonderful food you produced for us last night!
The only two vegans among the nine of us were myself and my husband, but everyone kept coming into the front room to tell me that something else they had tried was so tasty. And they kept going back for more! I can see why your cheesecakes win awards .. the carnivores among us just would not believe how you made that without cheese. Amazing!
Both my daughters also commented on what a lovely man you were - I am definitely going to spread the word whenever I can, as it was such a pleasure from start to finish.”
Anna & John, Ealing (west London)

“[Shambhu's cheesecakes] are really the best vegan cheesecakes we've found. Especially that the base stays crunchy.”

Nicki Brooks, Labour Animal Welfare Society

Abigail Burt, KINstinct Arts

“Thank you both for the smooth quality of service and delicious food you provided for us last Saturday. Many of my guests commented on the freshness of the delicious dishes you provided. I am delighted that I chose you to cater for my first ever totally vegan event. I hope I will find opportunities to use your services again.”
