King of Snake

Imagine a space bathed in sensual, dark red tones — a space that serves up a tantalising fusion of Asian and New Zealand cuisine. That's this hidden gem for you. The ambiance is chic, yet relaxed, and the entire restaurant resonates with thoughtful design. There's even a beautiful outdoor balcony overlooking the Avon river. It's a bustling place, but worry not — the service is always swift and friendly. When you visit, don't miss out on the deep-fried ice cream!


Once known mainly for its superb lamb, Canterbury and Christchurch are now gaining a reputation for a wide range of food and wine. Local meat produce includes venison, emu and ostrich. There is fresh seafood readily available including scallops, crayfish and Mount Cook Salmon, all which are recommended. Canterbury is also a large wine producing region, specialising in Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.
