New Zealand is for­tu­nate to have Si­dart, a din­ing room where cre­ativ­ity, crafts­man­ship and com­pe­tency meld beau­ti­fully to de­liver a fully mem­o­rable din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Chef Sid Sahrawat (right) just keeps get­ting bet­ter, bring­ing his con­sid­er­able skills to the plate with the con­fi­dence to pair ar­ti­choke with cof­fee, quali with gin­ger­bread, parme­san wi th meringue. The food is tex­tu­ral, al­ways per­fectly sea­soned and ever more play­ful. Sahrawat has truly mas­tered the de­gus­ta­tion art form, en­sur­ing an ex­pertly mod­u­lated and har­mo­nious flow to the meal, each beau­ti­fully pre­sented plate sug­gest­ing the prom­ise of the next. In all as­pects, the Si­dart ex­pe­ri­ence is highly pol­ished. The din­ing room is com­fort­ably in­ti­mate and qui­etly so­phis­ti­cated, leav­ing the food to pro­vide the ac­cents. Ser­vice is at­ten­tive and knowl­edge­able, with servers ex­pertly versed in the myr­iad as­pects of each dish and the most ap­pro­pri­ate wine part­ner.
