From walking in the door to paying the bill the service was spectacular, in an era where hospo is doing it hard this team is fantastic. We did the trust the Chef and could not fault a single dish, it was one of the best...dining experiences that I have had in New Zealand.More

My friends and I had the pleasure of dining here as part of a staycation in the city. Everything about the meal was outstanding, the service attentive but not intrusive. Such a great experience which I hope to repeat again in the near future. Thank...you so very much.More

Some delicious flavours, service was a little slow but given the aftermath of covid and short staff it is understandable....The mains and desserts were delicious and so was the salad but I wish I had brought my garden scissors as it was unmanageable, looked beautiful....the...charred greens were really unpleasant...More

Open kitchen with nice restaurant decor and ambience. Well trained, polite and professional staff. Nice menu with limited choice however a good selection. Delicious food although quite pricey- $31 for all starters and approx $45 for mains. Extensive wine list for bottle, would be great...to have some European options by the glass however I know the focus of Ahi is NZ. Good for a special occasion or if one’s budget allows more often!More

We had a fabulous meal that exceeded all our expectations. Food was innovative and faultless. Staff well trained offering immaculate service. Kitchen staff worked like clockwork. Such a shame we live in South Island but we hope to return!

We went to Ahi for our wedding anniversary dinner. The food was imaginative, creatively presented by expert chefs and delivered by top quality wait staff. Wines matched beautifully. All in all a superb evening. It wasn't cheap, but neither was it a bank-breaker. I warmly...recommend Ahi to everyone.More
