New Look for Queenstown Dining Institution
Queenstown's Wai Restaurant on Steamer Wharf has had a major revamp.
After ten years in business, this waterfront favourite is poised to become one of the resort town's finest dining spots.
On top of that, it was a finalist in the 2011 Cuisine Restaurant of the Year.
Established by Alex Boyes and Jan Rae in 2001, Wai quickly established itself as a quality dining spot and when head chef Martin James and his wife, Megan bought into the business in 2004, it went from strength to strength. They've recently won the Pernod Ricard competition for selling the most Mumm Champagne of any restaurant in New Zealand, which meant the owners were treated to a gastronomic trip to Chicago.
Now, with a sophisticated new bar and dining room to match the sophisticated cuisine, Wai is set to be a real winner.
