Blue Kanu

Modern NZ in Queenstown

Disproving the rule that all tiki houses are inherently tacky, Blue Kanu serves up a food style it calls 'Polynasian' – bibimbap in one hand, fried chicken pineapple buns in the other. It's relaxed and personable, capable of making you feel like a regular in minutes. The marriage of the Polynesian decor and the chopsticks sounds impossible to pull off, but it works.
