A fusion of Pacifica and Asian styles, this unique restaurant offers healthy and fresh foods in an exotic and atmospheric setting.

Ancient spices are blended with culinary talent to create tapas style dishes with a ‘Polynasia’ difference. Share delicious prawn and ginger dumplings, salmon poke with ssamjang and mouth-watering mushroom and goat’s cheese egg rolls.

Yummy pots and plates include smoked duck breast, tempeh bibimbab and wagyu rump steak with bone marrow mustard. Savour sweets like the banana moon pie or the crispy rice with coconut jam and toasted marshmallow. The menu regularly changes, so ask the friendly staff to guide you through the new and exciting options available this week.

After your meal, take a seat at the colourful hula hut bar and enjoy vibrant and refreshing cocktails Blue Kanu style. Bespoke artwork from local artists and carefully chosen light and texture ensures a vivid atmosphere. This is your destination for a truly unique and exotic dining experience with oceans of aroha.
