  • With some of the best sushi you can find in the city, Hachi Hachi in Cashel Square is a must try. 
  • Looking for something healthy? Piki Poke is the South Island's first dedicated poke shop (pronounced Poh-Kay). You can find this Hawaiian trend in The Crossing.
  • Pizza and a craft beer more your style? Pop on down to Dux Central - the perfect place for those long Friday lunches.
