Terms & Conditions

Orders

The website allows a person (“user”) to place electronic orders ("order") for one or more products on offer as long as such products are available and not sold out.

A purchasing contract ("sale") between the user and Asian Pantry shall be complete only once a user has placed an order and the payment has been processed fully, meaning Asian Pantry has received and accepted the payment.

 

Dietaries

We do have vegan options available for purchase, however you will see that there are a number of vegetarian products available showed by the symbols. Unfortunately, we do not cater for Halaal or Kosher requirements.

Please note that there is a possibility that our meals contain traces of nuts, soy, wheat, dairy, eggs, fish, shellfish or other allergens.

 

Freezing and reheating foods

Our frozen foods category can be frozen for future consumption; however, we would recommend consuming meals within three months of freezing. Please ensure some meals are defrosted completely before reheating. The safest way to defrost frozen food is in a refrigerator. Please do not refreeze dishes after they have been defrosted; they can remain in the refrigerator, but should be consumed within 48 hours.

Heating and preparation instructions are available on the product packaging and our containers are suitable for ovens, however not for microwaves. We recommend decanting dishes into suitable ovenproof or microwavable containers before reheating.

To ensure food is adequately heated, follow the heating instructions and check that the food is piping hot throughout. If not, heat for an additional brief period. To avoid scolding, allow the food to stand for a few minutes before serving.

If you have any queries regarding freezing of food items or reheating processes, please email hello@asianpantry.co.za.

 

Instructions for Cooking

Instructions for our frozen and pre-prepared foods will be provided either on the product page and/or on the product packaging.

Any concerns or queries regarding any of our products, heating instructions or deliveries should be sent to hello@asianpantry.co.za. We pride ourselves on excellent quality and customer service and will do our best to resolve any issues as soon as possible.

    Reservation of Items 

    Products cannot be reserved by a user to be bought at a later time. Placing an item in your cart without processing the payment for the order will not lead to a successful order being placed nor the reservation of (an) item(s).

     

    Availability

    Please note that the stock of all items on offer is limited. Asian Pantry will make all reasonable attempts to ensure that customers are notified when stock may be low.

Items are subject to a change in price without notice.
