Good for: enjoying fine flavors
Not good for: its all good
Lonely Planet review for Bodhi Tree
Christchurch’s only Burmese restaurant is also one of the city’s best eateries. Don’t come expecting spicy flavours from neighbouring Thailand, but look forward to subtle food crafted from exceptionally fresh ingredients. Standout dishes include the le pet thoke (pickled tea-leaf salad) and the ciandi thoke (grilled eggplant). Meat and seafood also feature. Dishes are starter-sized, so drum up a group and sample lots of different flavours. Bookings are essential.
