Little Bee Eatery

The diversity of Asia is delightfully expressed in the abundance of its many, delicious cuisines.
We want to bring you the richness & warmth of Asian culture through our cooking, where tradition & local produce creates an exquisite fusion.
Food is our passion & it is our great pleasure to share it with you. 

Bringing people together through food 

 

About Me & What I Do

I am an Architect, Designer & Cook living in the beautiful Kent countryside & I love to prepare delicious food using high-quality, locally sourced produce. My personal cuisine is based on perfecting recipes from South East Asia & Middle Eastern using the wonderful ingredients found here in the Garden of England.

 

Good food is always best enjoyed in good company & my aim is simply to serve fresh, home-cooked food in a warm, convivial atmosphere in my own home.

GIFT CARDS

Would you like to give something different but unique for a birthday or special occasion? Why not give your loved ones a Little Bee Eatery gift card?

We offer gift cards for our 'Supper Club @ Home' & takeaway service. It comes in a stylish hand-made gift card & envelope. Each gift card is for one person and valid for 12 months from the date of purchase. These can be purchased by email.

 

STYLING & HIRING SERVICE

Imaginative interior design & styling can create a magical atmosphere for important social events & I offer styling for family parties and other special occasions. I can also help create a memorable ambiance for your home or venue by providing tableware, crockery, decorative pieces, linen, candles & flowers.

 

I also offer a styling service to businesses by developing design concepts for branding or themed promotional events.

 

TAKEAWAY SERVICE 

Please browse through our takeaway service to choose an evening meal to enjoy with a glass of wine!

We will soon be selling online everything you need for dining and entertaining. If you wish to be informed when our online store opens, please send me an email or subscribe to the mailing list.

 

ACCREDITATION

We have been awarded a 5 Star Food Hygiene Rating - the highest rating possible - by our local Food Standards Agency (FSA). We also have a Food Safety & Hygiene Certificate and a FSM (Food Safety Management) system in place.

 

If you have any queries, or wish to discuss a booking or a private event, please do get in touch.

Takeaway Service T&Cs

 TAKEAWAY SERVICE 
We are delighted to offer fresh, delicious takeaway food for you to enjoy at home. The starters are always vegetarian, with one meat and one vegetarian main course. All dishes are mildly flavoured, so we recommend the vegetarian spicy condiments if you prefer it spicier.


DIETARY REQUIREMENTS
Special care is taken to ensure all vegetarian meals are cooked separately and use only vegetable-based ingredients.

We have a 5* Food Hygiene Rating but as we prepare fresh, seasonal ingredients in our kitchen, a number of allergens may be naturally present (celery, cereals containing gluten, crustaceans, eggs, fish, lupin, milk, molluscs, mustard, tree nuts, peanuts, sesame seeds, soybeans, sulphur dioxide and sulphites).

Therefore we are unable to accommodate gluten, fish & seafood, nut, egg and sulphur dioxide & sulphites allergies. Most of the vegetarian dishes are vegan but please do check details before ordering.

TAKEAWAY PICK-UP
Pick-up will be from my home, Little Bee, Howland Road in Marden, just a couple of minutes’ drive from Marden Station. We want you to enjoy our delicious food at its very best, so please try to pick up on time. Everything is freshly prepared in my kitchen and ready for collection in the evening.

COMPLAINTS
If there's anything you’re not happy with, please do mention it at the time. We really want you to enjoy our food and we will try our very best to resolve any problem there and then.

CANCELLATIONS
Unlike a big commercial restaurant, we buy ingredients and freshly prepare our dishes for a specific number of takeaways. Therefore, I'm afraid we are unable to offer refunds. Thank you for understanding.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: 

PLEASE NOTE THAT ORDERS SHOULD BE PLACED ON WEDNESDAY EVENING BEFORE THE TAKEAWAY DATE.

BECAUSE OF COVID-19, WE WILL EMAIL YOU A DESIGNATED COLLECTION TIME ONCE YOU HAVE ORDERED. COLLECTION TIMES ARE FROM 6:00 - 7:30PM. WE HOPE YOU WILL COME DURING YOUR ALLOCATED SLOT TO ALLOW EVERYONE TO SAFELY COLLECT THEIR TAKEAWAY.

Please click here to order. Thank you and we hope you will enjoy our food.

 
 

“This Eatery is a delight in our small village. We're very lucky. Theeba's food is really delicious, demonstrating a thorough understanding and technique in Asian cuisine. I can't wait to order more.”

— Sally S.

"Last night we could have been in the court of the Shah, or the home of Omar Khayyam. Enjoyed the most delicious Persian chicken and vegetable take-away dishes from this remarkable place. Theeba is a genius. Can't wait to journey onwards through her repertoire to Malaysia, Morocco and Vietnam. Do you do air-miles?"

— Graham T.

“Enjoyed my first takeaway from the Little Bee Eatery this evening and what an absolute joy it was. Bursting with lots of delicious flavours and wonderful textures. Theeba is an amazing cook. Thank you for what proved to be a taste sensation. Try out this fabulous service, you won’t be disappointed. Next stop Supper Club on 13th July...can’t wait : )"

— Lucie G.

“My husband and I enjoyed yesterday’s authentic Vietnamese dishes made by Theeba.
The taste took us back to our travels!
Easy to order, lovely people to pick up from.
We will definitely be back.”

Supper Club Etiquette

This section should answer most queries, but feel free to email me if you have a specific question. 

 

You will be dining in my home, so do treat the supper club as you would a friend’s dinner party. Please also show consideration to my neighbours when arriving and leaving.

 

ARRIVAL

We want you to enjoy our delicious food at its very best, so please try to arrive on time. Everything is freshly prepared in a domestic kitchen and served once cooking is complete. Please bear in mind that other guests will be waiting for their meal too.

DIETARY REQUIREMENTS

We have a 5* Food Hygiene Rating but as we prepare fresh, seasonal ingredients in our kitchen, a number of allergens may be naturally present (celery, cereals containing gluten, crustaceans, eggs, fish, lupin, milk, molluscs, mustard, tree nuts, peanuts, sesame seeds, soybeans, sulphur dioxide and sulphites).

Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate vegan dishes or gluten, nut and egg allergies.

DRINKS

We do not have an alcohol licence, but you are most welcome to bring your own. You can enjoy the wine you love, but without a big restaurant mark-up! We provide filtered tap water and you can bring your own soft drinks or mineral water. Please try to pre-chill drinks due to limited fridge space. 

COMPLAINTS

If there's anything you’re not happy with, please do mention it at the time. We want you to have a lovely, memorable evening and we will try our very best to resolve any problem there and then.

CANCELLATIONS
