Cuisine: Burmese
Price Point: Mains from $15 - $25

Immerse yourself in the fresh, clean and delicate flavours of Burmese cuisine.

Christchurch’s favourite Burmese restaurant has a new home just seven minutes from downtown Queenstown at Nugget Point Boutique Hotel. Located in the Lounge Bar, the dining room boasts breath-taking views over the famous Shotover River and surrounding mountains.

The menu features a healthy selection of meat, vegetarian, salad, seafood and soup options to suit every dietary requirement. Smaller-sized dishes enable you to share, sample and explore.

The Bodhi Tree’s signature dish is le pet thoke, a popular tea salad served with pickled tea leaves, lentils, nuts, sesame seeds and chilli. Or choose a flavourful curry, like ameyda nut, a mild beef curry with shallots, garlic and light spices.

The Bohdi Tree’s tranquil atmosphere is perfect for a healthy and flavoursome meal with friends and family.

My second time visiting Bodhi Tree, this time with my partner and my parents. The setting is exquisite, looking over the Shotover River. We asked the waitress to pick our dishes for us and each was absolutely delicious. Perfect flavours and unique dishes. Highly recommend

Have eaten here before and had top value meals. Perhaps this was an 'off day' for the restaurant but we felt the food lacked the lightness and individual flavours of past dishes. However the Tea salad was stunning as usual. We will be back though.

We had a great experience at the Bodhi Tree, thanks to First Table or we would not have thought to go and dine there. The food was fabulous (we just about tried the whole menu) & the service matched the food. Our waiter was great.... full of great recommendations which did not disappoint. We had 2 young kids with us (4&7) & they loved the food especially the lamb skewers & the dumplings! Definitely recommend it.

Incredible views and nice to try something different food wise. First time trying Burmese food so couldn't tell you how authentic it was but the fried chicken, dumplings and lamb sticks went down very well with our picky kids. Will definitely be back.

Nice and cosy by the fire. Gorgeous view of the Shotover.
The food was great, different flavours and textures. Really yum!!
Defibetly a must do in Queenstown.
The wine list is small but has a great representation of Central Otago. Try Te Amo Pinot Gris. Great match to the good!

We couldn't fault our experience at the Bodhi Tree one bit. Upon arrival we were met by three lovely staff, one from Denmark and two from Brazil and what gorgeous young people they were. We were given the pick of the tables and chose the best view of the river to show off to our guests. There was no rush with ordering, eating and leaving even though the restaurant was filling up around us. The food was exquisite and came out at regular intervals. The flavours lingered as we did over beautiful Central Otago Pinots. First to arrive and last to leave, thank you Bodhi Tree, you exceeded every expectation. We will be sure to tell our friends and look forward to returning soon. Julie and Paul

Such a discovery! We had a really nice dinner. The atmosphere was quiet and nice, with the fireplaces in the room. The food was delicious. We ordered a chicken salad, prawns, squid, dumplings and chocolate cake, and everything was amazing!! It was a good value for money. We will be back!

Great experience, starting right from the roaring open fire at reception. The service was perfect, just like the food. We ordered around 11 dishes to try everything and found it really hard to dislike a single one! There was so many ranges of flavours, and all really tasty. We especially liked the Eggplant dish, the tea leaf salad was one of our favourites. Meat dishes were all cooked well.

The atmosphere, view and excellent music selection added to a wonderful dining experience. The roaring fireplace, comfy dining chairs and the cozy dining area complemented the exotic food perfectly. The portions were quite small though and we recommend getting one more choice more than you'd normally order.

Disappointing. Service was well intentioned but the staff didn’t know much about the food and couldn’t give recommendations. Dishes came out randomly (as stated as “tapas” style, however we had to remind them to bring the rice that is meant to accompany everything. The meat dishes were ok, the fish was bland and over cooked and the vegetable dishes lacked flavour. Overall lots of food was left over (unusual for us). The location was pleasant but the dining just didn’t live up to the expectation and the nearly empty restaurant felt soulless. Sadly not recommended.

I had an awesome dinner experience! It's in a resort call nugget point , there's an amazing view, looking out to a valley with beautiful autumn colour. We were greet with really friendly waiter and waitress. It was our first time trying Burmese cuisine and we all loved it, must try the tea leaves salad.

This seems to be a well kept secret which is a pity as the setting, the service and the food are outstanding.
If you like the excitement and pleasure of new flavours from a variety of new foods this is as good as it gets. We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of a great dinner experience and will DEFINITELY be back again.

We saw all the good reviews and were eager to try for ourselves. . I'm veggie, my boyfriend isn't and had the fish. We both thought our dishes were just OK but not worth what we paid. Hate to be negative but just wanted to be honest for other's sake. Lovely views though!

Stunning views from our table, though most tables had unbelievable views.
We both thoroughly enjoyed the diversity of plates that we chose......lamb, squid, the crunchy tea salad was a standout, and tasty dumplings......we could not fit in dessert......next time.
The service staff were friendly, helpful about the Burmese menu and efficient.
We really enjoyed the evening. Recommended.

This was our first experience of Bodhi Tree and Firsttable. What a sheer delight this was. Bodhi Tree exudes an ambience of calm. A classy restaurant with the most exquisite view of the Shotover River and surrounding mountain peaks.
The food was sensational and very different to other cuisines. The tea salad was delicious and the lamb superbly tender. We also had the papaya salad and the prawns.
Fabulous meal, excellent service. We will definitely be back and highly recommend it.

We discovered the Bodhi tree last year and were excited about returning during our trip to Queenstown this year. It was even better - the food was outstanding again, and now the restaurant is in a fabulous room directly overlooking the river: a stunning view. First Table has introduced us to this and other restaurants in NZ that we would not have otherwise found. I wish we had First Table in the UK!

Most of the food was really good (although the staff struggled to describe some of the dishes). One dish we did not like an could potentially have avoided if the waitress was able to give us more information on it. Apart from that the food was delicious an the view sublime!
