Most Popular Restaurants In Christchurch

Christchurch is the largest city in the Southern Island of New Zealand, and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Having recovered from the earthquake tragedy in 2011, the city has been on the rise, as it is quite evident from its range of restaurants. Christchurch has got you covered, whether you fancy Italian, Chinese, European, vegetarian or Indian fine dining. It’s difficult to get started, but here are some of the best restaurants you should visit and remember to book bus hire in Christchurch for a convenient commute.

 

King Of Snake

When it comes to gastronomy delights, Christchurch is quite a cultural melting pot, with exotic places like King of Snake. This contemporary Asian bistro is not a typical dining establishment, but more like a movie set. Sit and enjoy a bunch of masked ninjas catapulting through the windows, while having the crispy pressed half duck with caramelized mandarin sauce. The place lives up to its expectations, with the delectable food taking all the limelight.

The Lotus-Heart Vegetarian Restaurant

When it comes to dining scene, the city of Christchurch epitomizes the diversity when it comes to getting the old nose-bag on. If any place is on that list, it might well be the Lotus Heart. Providing a completely vegetarian menu, the people at the Lotus Heart are dedicated to offering up organically and locally sourced fair in a divine retreat of an environment. For those of a gluten-free or vegan disposition, this is an essential port of call for anyone on a raw food diet.

Twenty Seven Steps

There’s always a rush at this European restaurant, and it is highly recommended to book reservations. Don’t try to be dicey, especially if you are going on a date. Such is the demand of this place which is known for offering a phenomenal time with cookery delights. Twenty Seven Steps has got to provide the best of what New Zealand has to offer in the seafood, beef and lamb departments. Their ever-changing menu caters to different seasons, and there’s always something new and exciting coming your way.

Fiddlesticks

The name itself is a therapy to the downhearted, and you won’t be feeling any more depressed when you sit down in this welcoming atmosphere with comfortable interiors. It’s an ideal place for intimate dinner, with first-rate food and extremely attentive staff. You can sit outside and watch the world go by over lunch of whitebait fritters and beer.

The menu offers tasters, along with entrees and starters. The entree option includes blue nose ceviche, marinated in lime and lemon juice, and skewered prawns. Duck liver parfait and delicious crisp goat cheese are tempting starters. One must also try king prawns, duck fat potatoes and crisp pork belly with diced apple, chorizo and cauliflower puree. Overall the food is delectable, and the place feels a little fancy, without being pompous.

Bacon Brothers

When it comes to restaurants, we often judge their quality of offerings based on how expensive they are. However, this is not always true. We have places like Bacon Brothers that defy the statement. You probably get the best burger in South Island right here in this little establishment.  That’s a big claim to make, given the likes of Velvet Burger in Dunedin and Fergburger in Queenstown, but given the worth of your money coupled with unbeatable service, Bacon Brothers is just about perfect. Do yourself a favour and order one of the many variations of the Bacon burger with a side of deep-fried cauliflower rather than fries.

Nobanno

This Indian Restaurant is something that you cannot get over. The food you consume here is only limited by your consumption capacity. An ideal excuse would be to come back again and again to sample authentic Indian curries on the menu. It has everything you want in an Indian eatery, with a lovely atmosphere to relax in, friendly and helpful staff, and some of the best curries you would want to try.

Chillingworth Road

This is one of the restaurants in which it is wise to choose a degustation menu. If you really want to get acquainted with the skills of the chefs in the back, then this is the way to go. They offer 5, 7 or 9 courses with an optional extra of wine pairings. Obviously, this comes at a price, but if you are happy to shell out for food which stresses high-end ingredients and attention to details, then this is the place to be.

Dimitris Greek Food

This Greek restaurant is for all the Greek food fanatics out there. In fact, it is the first place that comes to mind when we talk about Greek cuisine. Not only do they prepare top-notch street-style food, but also offer them at reasonable prices. Look no further if you are in quest of a tasty fresh lunch after the morning breakfast.

O.G.B.

Style and elegance are two crucial parts of a cocktail bar and restaurant. It defines the hospitality of a place, adding an element that attracts people again and again. This place has got a unique speakeasy vibe, coupled with incredible cocktails, central location and fantastic food. It is quite reasonable that people come here for dinner and stay till the closing time. Enjoy the expansive views of the Christchurch cathedral, while having a cracking breakfast menu, making it a favourite spot for lazy Sundays.

Zen Sushi And Dumplings

Embrace the idea of zen, as you walk through the doors of Zen Sushi and Dumplings. Drop those illusions and see things the way they are, without any misrepresentations created by your thoughts. You would be left with sushi and dumplings, and also the fact that both are delicious. Freshly prepared ingredients are the key here. Whether you choose some of the chive and pork dumplings –pan-fried or steamed, based on how naughty you feel, or the classic Marlborough salmon sushi and the classic avocado, there is no way to leave the joint without wondering how much more you should have consumed.
