Cuisine: Asian, Contemporary, Fusion
Price Point: Mains from $15 - $30

Priding themselves in serving up honest, Asian-fusion, The Dish is a very...dishy prospect!

Casual by day, enchanting by night, this is a restaurant that evolves as time goes on. Whether you decide to hit them up for lunch or dinner, you can be sure of a meal you won't forget.

Make lunch a luxurious affair with fresh oysters, crispy shallots and banh mi mini buns to start. Then get stuck in with some classic pad Thai, karaage chicken or spicy egg noodles with an array of seafood. Vegetarians have a whole section to themselves that's stuffed with greens, veggies and tofu.

The dinner menu has something for every whim and fancy. Fancy seafood? There are market fish, wok-fried scallops and many more fishy offerings. In the red meat corner, you have a beef cheek massaman curry, an aromatic lamb shank and some very sticky pork ribs.

Wonderful meal. The beef cheek curry and pork belly buns were a highlight. Service was attentive without being intrusive. We will definitely dine here again.

As stated in the ratings the food especially the Angus beef stir fry and karaage chicken were to die for and the service was great

We love Asian Fusion food - there is another reataurant just down the road from The Dish that is actually our favourite in ChCh. Or rather, it was. Our lunch experience at The Dish absolutely blew it out of 1st place! From the moment you enter with it's clean, comfortable, modern decor and calming, inobtrusive music you know that you have made a wise decision to eat here. The food manages to fuse the flavours and concepts from all over Asia into one cohesive, comprehensive menu.
We tried just about all of the starters on the lunch menu, and can throughly recommend them all - in particular the Beef Rendang Wontons with Massaman sauce, the Pork & Prawn French Toast (we lierally fought over the last 2 pieces) and the Bahn Mi bun with Pork Belly stood out for their flavours and originality. The lunch mains were a good size and full of fresh, crisp and colourful vegeatbles with our favourite being the Karaage Chicken which had a delicious rich and sticky sauce.
After 7 starters and 3 mains we really didn't need dessert, but of course we had to try at least 2 of the 3 on offer - the Matcha Creme Brulee was a hit with my dining companions (they said the Matcha was present but not overpowering) whereas I went for the Coconut Icecream, quite possibly my best menu choice of the day - sticky rice and caramelised pineapple perfectly complement the coconut flavours making it like a giant deconstructed Bounty bar.
There are plenty of photos online, I recommend that you check them out, yes the food does look just like that!
Our server was friendly and attentive, the food came out in good time and was hot, and the bill after the First Table discount was small. We will definately return to try out the larger Dinner menu, and we can not wait to do so!
PS: Special mention to the roti which was crisp, flaky and melt in the mouth!

We had a lovely dinner at The Dish. The service from every staff member was warm and friendly, the food was well priced and delicious and they have a great drinks menu. We had the oysters, prawn and pork toast, chicken pad Thai and the absolute standout - the beef cheek massaman curry (it was cooked perfectly). We've also seen a few things we'd love to try next time, because it was so good, well definitely be back!

We really enjoyed our lunch at The Dish. The menu was very interesting and creative. We all love the french toast with prawns and pork and the oysters were really yummy. Fried noodles was very tasty as well. Unfortunately the plum sauce in the peking duck roti was a bit too sweet, small improvement to make? Desserts were beautifully presented and the matcha creme brulee was really good. Service was very fast and efficient. Will definitely come back for more.

Extremely good meal. The Lamb Shank meat fell off the bone, the Fish of the Day was lovely, it was cooked in coconut and a hint of lime. Highly recommend.

Lovely place to dine. Great selections of dishes. Spoilt for choice. Proteins and vegetables cooked to perfection. Compliments to the chef/chefs. Nice ambience. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

Great service and restaurant was fitted out very nicely and clean. Catered for our family with a noisy one year old. Food was good but I think they are still working out their kitchen process as the food came out not as hot as it could be (temp wise). Other than that we'd like to be more adventurous in menu choices as the usual didn't showcase their expertise. We'd give them another go.
