A fusion of balanced flavours is the key to success for our head chef Shane Kearns. Like his counterpart in our Northland No.8 restaurant, Shane aims to delight customers with a menu full of choice that offers modern asian cooking unlike anything else in the Bay of Plenty. He and his team use fresh ingredients and a combination of bold cooking techniques to ensure you walk away knowing 'you can't get this at home'. The whole experience of dining at No. 8 has been designed specifically so our customers enjoy the chance to share each plate with friends, which enhances the experience rather than giving food envy. The decadent interior adds to the atmosphere making you feel like you've been transported somewhere exotic on holiday.
Our staff are handpicked to make sure every meal you have here is unforgettable. The soft shell crab already has a reputation in Northland so we've added it to our menu along with an array of choices which include a wide range of gluten and dairy free options. We are committed to sustainable local produce where possible and meats to ensure our flavours, our food and ambience are the priority.
