Going for gold with hand-crafted Southeast Asian plates and a dazzling range of exotic cocktails, The Goldfinch is making lunches and dinners sparkle in the heart of Christchurch.

A vision of moody glamour, The Goldfinch is instantly recognisable by its glossy, embossed exterior. Creating a sense of luxury using a limited colour palette of patent black and gold, their expansive dining hall is modern elegance at its best. Sweeping windows allow you to bask in the sunlight at lunchtime whilst giving you a front-row seat to a miraculous sunset at dinner. The perfect place for something extra special, treat yourself and loved ones to Goldfinch's unparalleled dining experience.

If you're flying in for lunch, their varied menu is full of delicious light bites to carry you through to the afternoon. Get crispy with some moreish karaage chicken, some coconut calamari or treat you and your dining partner to a lunch platter that host all kinds of exotic delights. Wild boar skewers, anyone? And with a selection of bao buns and signature burgers on offer, lunch can also be a hands-on affair if you prefer.

The dinner menu is as sophisticated as it is exciting. Always serving something you've never tried before, now's your chance to broaden your culinary horizon. From a soy-braised dong po pork belly to orange and miso salmon, massaman lamb and an intriguing exotic curry, premium cuts of meat are given all the respect they deserve. If you're in the sharing mood, there are plenty of exquisite dumplings, skewers and small plates to keep the culinary journey going. Finally, take your pick of beautiful destinations with their Korean, Vietnamese, Chinese and Indian-inspired cocktails. Where to next?
