Really impressed with the food, ambience and service. Our waiter last night really added to the experience which was my partners 50th birthday. Everything was fantastic and couldn't fault it!

I booked 24 men in for dinner (I booked it 6 months in advance) and we took the set banquet. The food was absolutely sensational and every single person loved all the dishes, from entree through to dessert it was all to die for. The restaurant had us set up in a nice area all together spread across two large tables and were very well looked after.
I Highly recommend booking in advance if you have a small-large group.
I would definitely come here again.

From time of arrival such a welcoming and next level atmosphere from the music such a vibe and the staff stunning service such a comforting experience.

Food is next level the flavours are amazing my fave definitely the pork belly and the koko Samoa cheesecake ohhh yuuum.
The menu is designed for sharing but staff are really good at explaining everything definitely a must.

Our visit to Blue Kanu was a dining experience rather than just another meal out. We started with seats at the cocktail bar where we were thoroughly entertained by the two barman, while we waited for our table to be prepared. At the table we were taken through the sharing plate menu and advised as to the quantity of food we should order from the small plates and main courses available. We chose 3 small plates and one main course to share which turned out to be ample food for the two of us. The food arrived in stages and at no time did we feel rushed. The Seafood Laska we had as a main was an excellent choice. Cost overall was reasonable and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for that little bit more than just a meal while staying in Queenstown.
