It is the greatest place near St Peter's Anglican Church. This restaurant is an ideal choice if you are in the mood for New Zealand and Polynesian cuisines. You will be offered tasty tempura oysters, wontons and lamb curry. Taste good coconut ice cream, green pancakes and panna cotta at Blue Kanu.

The wine list is diverse, it can satisfy the needs of all visitors. Delicious chocolate frappe, tea or espresso are worth trying here. The high ratings of this place wouldn't be possible without the energetic staff. Fabulous service is something that people highlight in their reviews. You will like democratic prices. There is a calm atmosphere and divine decor at this spot. This restaurant earned 4.5 on TripAdvisor.

Hmmmm. Difficult review to write as there were some excellent points and as always price and prior reviews drive expectations but I feel that any other place in Google with a review of 4.5 + should be unequivocally awesome so here goes.1. The decor is cool and the restaurant is warm.2. The staff are polite and friendly.3. We only ordered the set menu with matched wine so I have no experience with the a la carte or cocktail side of things here. However the matched wine choices were excellent (despite the waitress being unable to explain the location of the local Otago wines served)4. Under no circumstances, no circumstances, should one receive back to back dishes containing prawn crackers on any set menu, ever.5. Creamed coconut milk is fun and exciting, again if confined to a single course (not 3).Maybe I've been spoilt by the Wellington dining scene. All of the dishes we had were tasty but seriously, our choice of booking was between here, rata and Botswana butchery and I can't say we made the right call. This restaurant would be best compared with high end byo options available to one in any major city as opposed to a fine dining option.
Really good food, super quick which means it's easy to order more if you under ordered. Was a nice setting too, the Duck Nachos are on point, probably best way to eat here is to order everything.
Must order the salmon poke - next level awesome! Service is on point, all the food is beautiful, drinks are great - 10/10 spot in the heart of ZQN!
