The Flying Pigeon Restaurant in Gisborne is one of those places your just happy to keep going back to because you know you'll be served great food and drinks by friendly, knowledgeable staff in a relaxed and friendly environment.

It's been that way since Day-1 and locals in the know will tell you that it's impossible to fault either the menu or the service.

The Flying Pigeon serves up a fusion of Asian cuisine, all first class fare but the homemade dumplings are to die for. Pork, Wombok & Dill Dumplings with ginger and aged rice vinegar, Chicken, ginger & lemongrass Dumplings with spicy coconut broth or Prawn Dumplings with house Sichuan Chilli Oil ... I'm salivating over the keyboard just thinking about it.

The rest of the menu is a mix of a' la carte and tasting platters.
Mouth-watering entrees such as Cantonese Style Barbeque Pork ($13) and Thai Style Pulled Pork Tacos ($10.50) lead into mains of Lamb Winter Curry($28), Sichuan Beef Stir-fry ($20), Asian style wok tossed green beans ($12) or my absolute favorite, the Thai style slow-cooked pork belly ($26) has to be tried to be believed.

Traditional Asian dishes similar to this are at the heart of the Flying Pigeons Asian fusion menu.


There's a 3-Course Tasting Menu for $39 per person or 4-Courses for $49 per person.

On a recent group outing, we ordered the 4-Course Tasting Menu for 14 people. Servings were plentiful and the entire group was unanimous in their praise for the quality of food and the service.

Tasting Menus require a minimum of four adults ordering and the a' la carte menu is only available for groups 10 or less.
