Fishtail Restaurant and Bar
Ranked #4 of 15 Restaurants in Twizel
Restaurant details
Reviewed 4 April 2024 via mobile

We were staying in Twizel for one night as part of round the world vacation and whilst walking around the we came across this little gem.
We asked if there would be any available tables coming up soon as at the time of our visit there wasn’t any availability. The lady told us it would be around twenty minutes if we would like to wait. We did then went back and enjoyed a lovely curry served by nice people.
Whilst there we noticed lots of locals coming in to collect takeaways which is always good to see.

Delicious food, great atmosphere and friendly service….what more can you ask for!
Our group of 4 men visiting Twizel for a fishing week dined at Fishtail twice as the first visit was lovely.
We enjoyed a selection of curries each sensational.
I can highly recommend!

We ordered chicken jalfrezie and kadai chicken. Both were exceptional good. Plenty of chicken and rich flavours.
Naan bread was deliciously light.
Definitely recommend and hope to go back before we leave the area.
Very busy so recommend booking.

Went to this restaurant for dinner after a day of hiking the Hooker Valley Trail. Didn’t know what to expect but was blown away by the quality of the food. The restaurant serves Nepalese food, curries, naan, samosas, tandoori, etc. My wife ordered the butter prawns and I had the signature house dish called “Hilly Goat”. We also ordered naan and raita. Every dish was delicious, better than the same dishes we had eaten before in the States. Unbelievable that this gem of a restaurant is in Twizel, population 1500. Very highly recommended, located in the center of Twizel in a small shopping center. Lots of vegetarian options and a small bar.
