“I had the pleasure of performing my role alongside this team. Over the two days I was able to enjoy the food prepared by the chefs. Lost for words. Outside of London this was some of the highest quality Indian food I have ever tasted. No oil in the curries. Salad starters. Monthar to die for Srikhand so light. 5 star food quality. The team also put together a simple yet stunning Mandap. If you want great quality Indian food in this part of the world or a Mandap – try these people. And all done with a smile on their faces. Happy people. Top boss.”

CLIENTS / COUPLES

“We wanted to write a personal Thank you for the beautiful, delicious and authentic food you and your staff provided on our wedding day last week. Sometimes the parents are difficult to please when it comes to Indian food but they just loved the food (the papdi chaat and hare bare kebabs were particularly popular!). All of our guests remarked on how excellent the food was (from the canapés to dessert to the masala chai) and wanted to know where the food came from. So be prepared for some queues in Lisbon! Thank you for doing a spectacular job, and giving our guests very happy full bellies, and a food experience they (and we) will not forget.” 

Mamta & Randeep

“We would love to say a BIG THANK YOU to Seema, Dhimant and their team. Our initial contact was with Seema – she was brilliant from the start, nothing was to much trouble & was always there for any questions we had or any help we needed. The menu was large with lots to choose from. Dhimant came to the event & instantly worked his magic. He was checking in with guests to make sure they were all happy. We are honestly are so glad we went with you both as you made all our visions a reality. We are still getting compliments till today on how amazing the food was and the service was! Actually how amazing the whole day was. If we are ever to do an event in the future we would defiantly choose you all!”

Your service is also super professional which I value, and I really appreciated you checking in with us at both times just to make sure all was okay. It’s a small touch which has such a big impact. Thank you for all your suggestions and for helping us out too, I couldn’t recommend you highly enough!”

Jaymin & Komal

“When Anjali and I decided to have our wedding in Portugal we knew our biggest challenge was going to be getting the right local wedding planners that could work with us to give us what we wanted. We knew we wanted to bring in particular aspects of what we love at London Hindu weddings without compromising on quality of food or overall experience. We had been give two very strong recomendations of Dhimant and Seema and when we finally met them it was easy to see why. Passage to India take pride in everything they do and it made the entire process very easy for us. They are very respected with a number of suppliers which allowed us to tailor the sound, lighting, coaches, flowers, cakes, decorations and most importantly the food. Dhimant and Seema had arranged a special tasting menu months in advance of the wedding which allowed us to select  a number of menus for our events. The quality of passage to India far surpasses any food ive had at any Indian weddings across the world. They have chefs that have traditional and fusion options that allowed us to deliver something very unique. We both firmly believe the food is the one thing the guests always remember and our guests still tell us how amazing it was. I would highly recommend passage to India for anyone interested in having an event in Portugal. Event planning is generally a stressful experience but these guys take away all the hard work and make it look easy. I consider Dhimant and Seema friends for life primarily down the great job they did and the love, attention and care they did to delivering it”

Amit & Anjali

“Seema & Dhimant, we wanted to say a massive thank you for all your help with our wedding! You guys were so easy to work with, so responsive and accommodating which made it a pleasure to work with you. The food and décor was amazing, you did exactly as we asked and we absolutely felt as though our Indian events looked just as we wanted them! All our guests loved the food! Thank you for also taking time to come to the meetings with us whenever we were in Lisbon and even showing us the warehouse which allowed us to find even more beautiful decorations to add to our wedding. You guys are brilliant at what you do and we really enjoyed working with you, thank you!! Would recommend without a doubt xx”

Raghav & Nimisha

“Seema, Dhimant, Catarina and team, thank you so much for everything did to make our wedding events perfect! We were lucky to have worked with you, we really couldn’t have done it without you. You have been with us every step of the way, guiding us through the process, negotiating with vendors, providing excellent catering and décor options and you did it all with patience and love. Your connections in Portugal, bridging the gap with the language barrier and time difference saved us hours of time and stress. You were always available to answer our questions and talk through all thr crazy ideas we had. Thank you for putting our minds at ease, all of your attention to detail and bringing our ideas to life. Thank you for all the late nights responses (I really don’t know when you sleep) and all the energy everyone put into planning our big day. Thank you for the incredible food! I think about it often and can’t wait to come dine at your restaurant again. I could go on and on, but basically we owe you a million thanks and we won’t forget all you have done for us!
The care and passion you have for your work is amazing. Your services truly exceeded our expectations. You really made us feel like family and we are fortunate to call you ours.”

Seema & Pepe

“I’ve been sitting here thinking about how to write a review on you guys that have become more than a supplier to us… you have become family. Being a bride and finding the “right” supplier was a daunting thought… especially when we were abroad… then I met our power couple…. the best way to describe them would be through the questions that I wanted answered when planning my wedding 
1. variety of food, our wedding spanned over several days so we wanted food that was different each day – did PTI deliver? – absolutely yes! this was the talking point at our wedding.
2. Decor – I was weary about this, as a bride, I had a vision and I felt as I was abroad this may not be to the UK standard – but I showed pictures to WE by PTI and it turned out better than what I imagined 
3. sound and lightening – another worry! I must admit more for my husband than myself! – my husband had a vision…. was it delivered – 100% yes it was epic and a tech loving husband loved it. 
4. Our most important point through out the wedding planning. We needed trust and perfection- and we got this in abundance from PTI family. To a point where Seema would ask me what I thought of something and I would respond “you decide I trust you” (this is a huge statement for a Bride to make!) 

We wouldn’t change anything it was the most perfect wedding for us and if it wasn’t for our power couple and co. It would have still been a dream.  Thank you for making our dream wedding a reality and thanks for becoming friends for life. I could go on and on! there is just too much to compliment! thank you doesn’t seem enough.

Sunny & Dimple

Vichal & Supriya

“My daughter got married in Portugal in 2017. We had 2 events that were catered by Passage to India. I cannot express how great the quality and the variety of food that was offered was fantastic and till today our guests talk about it. I would recommend Passage to India to anyone seeking excellent authentic Indian food.”

Smila Patel

“Just wanted to say thank you so much for your efforts, before and during our wedding…it felt like a dream and it’s all down to you guys. Seema thank you for your patience throughout the leadup! I bet you’ve never met anyone as particular as me so really appreciate everything you did for me!! I was remembering all the time and effort you guys spent on helping us with our wedding! We were the Dream Team”
