Paddy Gaddy will have you giddy gaddy for Southeast Asian food. You might be in Queenstown, but here the rice terraces are never far away...

By that, we mean that the walls are plastered with stunning wallpaper showcasing Southeast Asia's most stunning scenery. Located next to the lush rice terraces are casual tables with cushioned sofas and chairs. Not only that, Asian lanterns twinkle away while the friendly staff buzz about in flamboyant garms.

Warm up to the scorching Asian weather with some popping prawns, wagyu beef steamed buns and their ever-changing fresh catch taco. Go on a meaty tour of SE Asia with their shaking beef, Mekong curry, duck fried rice and the dramatic flaming seafood bowl. You're going to need some aloe for that burn!

It's a part of the world famed for its party scene so get involved with a jazzy cocktail! Fall head-over-heels for the samura fall, stand tall with their terracotta soldier or keep it close to home with the Queenstown colada.

We had a great time for my birthday dinner at paddy gaddy the food and staff are both exceptional. The kingfish sashimi is a must try the flavours are beautiful! The chicken satay dish is also a must try! Great atmosphere with friendly staff thanks again!

The food was amazing! Great atmosphere and very accommodating staff. We ordered varieties of dishes. Vegan curry was absolutely delicious, the lemongrass chicken was so tender. The best was the wagyu steamed bun. And everything else is so tasty

Definitely up there with the best food in Queenstown! I'm a pretty fussy eater but I would happily eat everything on this menu. The duck, the lime chicken satay, the popping prawns! THE MOJITO. The staff are super attentive (but not annoying) and absolutely lovely. All round awesome experience.

Great experience. We sat outside to make the most of the summer evening. The menu was interesting and it was hard to choose as everything looked tasty. The food was great service excellent. We were so full we thought we couldn’t fit dessert but squeezed in a coffee panacotta between the three of us. Would highly recommend this place.

it was a hot night so we dined outside where the people watching in the busy mall was fascinating. Our waiter was friendly, helpful and efficient. We shared 5 small platters which was about right and loved each with the stand-out being the kaffir lime chicken.
There are many Asian fusion restaurants in the area styled like Paddy, but, in my opinion, this might be the best.

Food was amazing - better than White and Wong’s and Madame Woos. The service was also great - enough to tick all boxes but not overbearing. We loved our dinner at Paddy Gaddys and can not recommend enough.

Amazing food experience!!!. All the dishes were delicious and tasty. We especially liked the beef bun, tacos and pad Thai.
The staff is new so need more time to be helpful but the dishes arrived quickly at the table and we never run out of water.
We will definitely come back it was a great evening.

The decor was fresh and nice. Main meals were very sizeable so ideal for sharing. The small plates were very tasty especially the chicken kaffir. Loved the wine rack. Thanks we will be back.

We all agreed this is probably the best restaurant in Queenstown that we've tried! Everything was so delicious, modern asian influence. I never order chicken at restaurants as it tends to always be cooked dry... I have never had a more perfectly cooked juicy chicken than here. The sashimi had amazing flavour. The pork fried dumplings were a hit. The duck fried rice, tacos, shaking beef, pork & prawn salad were all super tasty. Only the tapioca we could have done without but otherwise, everything was really fun to enjoy with everyone. Will be back ASAP! :)

Incredible food, going back again soon!

Great service and restaurant atmosphere! We ordered a selection of small plates and 2 main dishes. All were yum, but if I went again, I would probably order more smaller dishes and only 1 large plate.

Simply the most authentic asian style food I've found since living in Thailand! Shaking beef was delicious, vegan curry fragrant but the standout dish for us was the carpaccio fish - so tasty! Thanks guys, we'll see you again soon.

Food, glorious food. If taste, food quality & quantity is important to you then Paddy Gaddy is the place to go. Four of us dined at this restaurant last evening & were unanimously impressed with the food served to us. Each dish, whether entree or main, had individualistic & distinctive flavour which we all appreciated. The service was friendly & reasonably attentive without quite being upper echelon. Nevertheless, a most enjoyable experience & one that needs to be repeated.
