About Bambuchi

Bambuchi offers a warm and welcoming atmosphere that feels like it's been around for ages serving up a small seasonal fine dining menu.

Step into the suburban oasis and sit at the bar and enjoy a beautiful cocktail or wine.

Our Head Chef Maxime Gnojczak has put some Southeast Asian flavours into the dishes which compliment the decor and atmosphere

Our space is small, we have 2x Chefs and so we have designed our menu as a "shared dining experience" for this very reason. Dishes come out as they are ready and not all at once.

Cuisine: Modern New Zealand, Asian Fusion
Dress Code: Casual

The Ahi Mata was excellent. I also enjoyed the black pudding starter, although black pudding could have been crispier/thicker cut. Wine/olives were very good. Atmosphere was good for a Thursday night. Service was also attentive, and I was made to feel very welcome. Good value.

5 Stars all round! Such amazing food and service. The cocktails are delicious and great value. My husband and I dined at Bambuchi last night - and if you go there and don't have the beef cheeks you're crazy - they are hands down the best thing I've ever eaten!

Had a really enjoyable evening. The staff are really friendly and super helpful. The food is delicious. We loved trying new things that we wouldn't normally see on menus. I'd recommend everyone gives Bambuchi and I'm sure they will be pleasantly surprised

Love Bambuchi. Every visit is a new delight. On Saturday we brought a discerning foodie friend from the south with us - she loved it. The next day she couldn't stop talking about the it.

Roasted Brussels sprouts with aioli and toasted hazelnuts. Sublime. Seaweed salad. Cheeky. Mushrooms with a crispy wafer made of deliciousness. Loved everything. Service was outstanding. Setting is lovely. Go before the chef goes global.
