Traditional Meets Modern : Ends up Delicious


Soul Kitchen caters out of the Sandfords Event Centre in Opunake.

We are passionate about food that tastes as good as it looks.

We also care deeply about our people, our community and our place in it.

Soul Kitchen is led by Belinda, a trained chef with over 20 years in the hospitality industry. Close beside is the front of house manager, Todd. He loves to serve, and have a yarn...together they make a formidable leadership team.

They are well complemented by a crew who take pride in providing a seamless service that is all about you and your event.

As a whole team, Soul Kitchen knows how to get the job done right - and we'll have a bit of fun while we do it.



As well as good-looking, great-tasting food, Soul Kitchen cares about the people and place that we've come to call home. We are always on the look out for ways to give back.

From contributing catering for fundraisers, to hosting community dinners for different groups, we love to be a part of the sharing.

We reckon one of the best ways to get people together is to break bread together.

Feel free to get in touch if we can share the love with your community group



Corporate Events

We can cater for up to 180 as a sit down buffet in the main dining room. However, the stadium within Sandfords Event Centre is also available where we can cater for up to 400 for big events.

Why not make a day of it in Opunake? - the nearby beach is great, claybird shooting, archery and paintball is available just up the road. The stadium offers a full size basketball/netball court, squash courts and a gym. Gather your workplace for your next planning day/team building day


We love love! And we love being a part of your special day. In-house or out-catered, we sit down and springboard from our base menus to create your perfect meal.

Special diets are easy to accommodate - and we love doing something a little bit unique for every bride
