Thai to tempt


Intimate Thai dining, a picturesque setting and being welcomed like part of the family; it could only be Lemongrass.

At 56 Fletchers Road Loburn, Manager and Chef Sriamorn Reavill has spent 11 years building the most idyllic Thai dining experience possible.

“My dream to have a place where I can create Thai dishes for people which I had growing up turned out even better than I imagined,” she says.

Dining at Lemongrass is always an experience to cherish and many satisfied regulars from throughout the greater Christchurch area simply cannot get enough of Sriamorn and her culinary expertise.

“I love giving people what I like, when people come and dine here, I want them to feel like family, so I naturally want people to experience Thai cuisine the way I did through my family back home,” she says.

Lemongrass’ Thai Beef Salad, Panang Beef Curry or Massaman Chicken Curry always goes down a treat, especially as each dish is prepared with the same level of love and dedication Sriamorn and her family are famous for.

If you fancy something alcoholic, be sure to bring your own, but a word of warning, once you are here enjoying the delicious delicacies, enjoying a glass of bubbly and taking in the beautiful surroundings, you will be in no hurry to leave.

Bookings are essential so phone 03 310 3102 or email lemongrass.loburn@gmail.com.

“I am all about making great memories,” she says with a smile.

 

 


 

Sensational street food


The Night Noodle Market is not just noodles – it’s music, fun and fabulous Asian flavours.

 

 

Hagley Park’s lakeside Entertainment Triangle will have 21 local and international hand-picked food stalls from February 6, Waitangi Day, until February 15.

That’s 10 mouth-watering nights for Christchurch’s celebrated pop-up event under neon lanterns.

Event Manager Vanessa Fleming says stallholders are working on exciting new menus, with more plant-based options.

Aussie Hoy Pinoy’s smokin’ BBQ skewers and Gelato Messina’s Thai full moon gelato dessert menu will wow.

New onboard are Japan’s The Flying Noodle and Melbourne’s Puffle Dessert.

Favourite local fare includes new restaurant Dish. Moa Beer, Crafters Union and the Coca-Cola Caravan have beverages to match the feasting.

Achieving NZ’s Best Sustainable Event at the 2018 NZEA Awards, compostable packaging partner Ecoware, recyclable cans, and 100 percent recycled plastic bottles help the event move towards zero waste.

Lion dancers, Takumi drummers, performers and live bands spice up the mood, with local funk/reggae band Horizon for opening night.

Sport Suzie will entertain the kids both Saturdays.

Eclectic new visuals include an immersive entranceway and an 9m-wide neon-look “selfie” wall.

Vote for the favourite ‘Top Chopsticks’ stallholder to be in to win $1000. Also Air New Zealand offers the chance to win economy flights for two to Asia.

Entry is free and all ages are welcome, including dogs on a leash.

There’s free Wi-Fi at the cashless event – all stallholders accepting major credit and debit cards (excluding AMEX) and have contactless payment facilities.

Noodle Night Market runs from 4pm to 10pm daily – with a 1pm start for Sparks in the Park, on the last day.
