The meals are excitingly different, beautiful taste sensations and an excellent wine list to compliment the menu choice. Sitting by the window offers views of Caroline Bay.

I enjoy coming to Fusion, my fav to take out of town friends to. Menu is usually varied and interesting. Pork belly tacos as a starter are a favourite. Worth leaving room for dessert

We visited this restaurant as locals recommended it. The menu is well thought out and small in terms of choice which is great for a restaurant for table turnover but I feel the few choices should be ultra tasty and that's where it missed the mark. The restaurant itself has a lovely decor and it would have a great ambience... More

We stopped in for a coffee until we saw someone having this dessert! We ended up having this and fries plus drinks. This dessert not only looked spectacular but the flavours were amazing. The location is so beautiful in the sunshine and the service was excellent. We will have to call in again when we are next in Timaru 😎

We were recently in Timaru and tried the restaurant. It was pleasant to see a small and specialised menu that did not fail to impress, so much so that we went back the following night with 4 more guests. Beautiful presentation and attentive service made it a very pleasing experience and one we will repeat when we are next in... More

The restaurant is in a great location and modern on the inside. I'm vegan and they have no problem making vegan dishes as long as you ask in advance. The meals are always delicious though they're quite expensive and the portions aren't that big. Staff are friendly and helpful.

Fusion is well known for its gorgeous fusion of tastes and food. Award winning lamb dishes and other very flavoursome menu options make your dining experience very unique. The service from the time you enter the restaurant is excellent and welcome you as old friends. The restaurants décor is beautiful great for a romantic meal for two or a meal... More
