Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Came for takeaway food as nothing else was open should’ve just gone home. We weren’t allowed to her anything to drink while we waited and the only seats where at the bar beside all the dirty dishes. Our food came in cardboard boxes which didn’t...close so the sauce from the ribs leaked all over everything as did the dressing to the salad. The 24hr ribs we thought would melt of the bone but were tough and chewy as was the rest of the meal. Dumplings lacked flavour and came wrapped in something you get around a bunch of oranges which was weird and tasteless. I would save your money and starve instead of going back hereMore

Firstly apologise to your experience of takeaway meal. Due to plastic ban and environmental concerns, we tried to use paper boxes for takeaway meals. Sorry it may cause some inconvenience and sauce leaking after a long distance travel. We will change the container soon to...More

The staff were super friendly and the food was delicious. I’m usually a bit skeptical of Asian fusion restaurants but Wanafusion was so good that it was the first place we ate at the next time we were in Wanaka!

Savory and fresh. We ordered the duck curry. It was a nice size portion with lots of fresh, broccoli and vegetables. Yum!

Had the assam cod and Thai salad with duck and lovely coconut rice. The balcony views of lake Wānaka a bonus. Inside also seemed nice

We decided to try Wanafusion during our stay in Wanaka, drawn by the promise of exciting fusion flavors. However, our experience was disappointing. Our order consisted of Pork Belly San Choi Bow, Pot Stickers, and Bang Bang Chicken. The Pork Belly San Choi Bow was...particularly disappointing. The pork belly wasn't properly rendered, leaving it with a slimy texture that was far from appealing. Additionally, the substitution of soft leaf lettuce instead of the traditional crispy iceberg lettuce made wrapping the fillings a messy endeavor. The overall taste fell flat and didn't live up to our expectations. Moving on to the Pot Stickers, we found them to be bland and lacking in the hearty flavors we were anticipating. They were forgettable and didn't add anything to our meal. The Bang Bang Chicken was the only dish that was palatable, but it didn't wow us either. It was satisfactory, but given the other letdowns, it didn't do much to salvage our dining experience. All in all, our meal at Wanafusion was disappointing. The execution didn't match the creative menu, and the flavors were lacking. We were hoping for a memorable meal but were left with a taste of dissatisfaction.More

Excellent service. Amazing food. I had dumplings sauce yummy and special pineapple fried rice delicious. A restaurant that’s spacious and friendly staff. Had a group of 12 and service was fast. Highly recommend.

Lovely spot in central Wanaka; always popular with great tasting fresh food. All presented well, accompanied by polite professional service staff. Reasonably priced. Accommodative to groups of all sizes; best to book ahead though especially during peak Summer and Winter tourist seasons

Our kids wanted to eat Pho so we chose this restaurant. They both loved it. We chose the Trust the Chef - Feed Me option & it was one of the best meals I've had since we moved to NZ 3 years ago. It reminded...me why I used to love eating out. The service was excellent too. I've been to amazing restaurants all over the world - this was one of those!More
