About Us



When it comes to vegetarian food, Cardiff has been described as “a bit of black hole”. This, however, is no longer the case with the Vegetarian Food Studio gaining several awards and national recognition for its pure and authentic vegetarian menu.

We are located on Penarth Road, a short walk away from the city centre is our friendly, family run restaurant which offers an extensive range of pan-Asian vegetarian dishes which has earned us an army of devotees.

The main driving force behind the Vegetarian Food Studio is Neil Patel pictured below.



Neil has had a passion for cooking since a very early age when he used to help cook for community events with his Grandmother (who can be still found in the Kitchen on occasions preparing the fresh breads for the restaurant!).

The Vegetarian Food Studio offer three main services. The first being the restaurant. The restaurant as mentioned earlier is based in Penarth Road a stones throw from the city centre. The restaurant provides a great place for people to try award winning vegetarian Indian food, here are a few photos of food leaving the hotplate.







The second and third services are catering for events and weddings. If you have any food catering requirements we can help. We are vegetarian Indian food caterers with all of the capabilities and facilities to deliver a first class food service for your event.

The photo below shows our team working hard from the kitchen at the Vale Hotel recently.





It doesn’t matter if you are catering for 50 guests, 300 guests or 4000 guests we can deliver for any number for your event. We have worked for top brands in Cardiff and the UK, brands such as organisations outlined below.

We have been catering for 17 years providing award winning and delicious vegetarian Indian food. We cook all of our food fresh on the day ensuring high standards. Here are a range of photos of food prepared at the Vale Hotel catering for over 800 people.














We guarantee 100% satisfaction when it comes to price, service and delivering delicious award winning vegetarian Indian food. We can cater for a wide variety of events especially if you require food catering for:


• Business events

• Weddings (The VFS cater for both English and Indian weddings)

• Birthday celebrations

• Christenings

• Private Functions

• Private home parties

• Sports Events

• Special Day offers


Not only do we provide the Indian Food but we can tailor to your event. If you require waiters in bright pink uniforms you can have waiters in bright pink uniforms, if you require black shirts and red ties like in the picture below then we are able to get these requirements.





Not only do we bring great Indian Food for everyone to enjoy but we also ensure you have all of the drink requirements needed from champagne, Prosecco and all of the beer or spirit requirements, these can also all be supplied.





In the unlikely event that there was ever a problem at a prestigious event we are covered with £10,000,000 indemnity insurance cover, so you know in unlikely unforeseen events you are also covered financially. It is important to mention this as a lot of caterers throughout the UK are not covered with insurance so if something went wrong you would have to foot the bill whereas we are covered for any eventuality.
