Fusion front runner: Formosa Restaurant


Atmosphere and flavour collide at Formosa, Ashburton’s standout Asian-fusion restaurant perfect for post-race dinner, fine dining, cocktails or dessert.

The Formosa experience starts from the moment you walk in the door; where you are greeted with a vibrant red brick wall emblazoned with flowers and cluster of red parasols floating above.

With beautiful, polished décor in a spacious setting, Formosa has three roomy and uniquely themed spaces: The VIP Room, Chinese Lantern Area, and the Red Parasol Area that are perfect for an intimate date night, a family lunch or event for up to 120 guests.

It also has an open kitchen so you can witness the creation of your food and engage with the friendly chefs while they are in action preparing beautifully presented, authentically Asian dishes.

The fabulous food pairs beautifully with the delightful wines and cocktail menus and can be prepared for dine in or takeaway, or customised for an event, complete with vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options.

A fine dessert menu and new high tea offering provide even more options for post-race festivities, or something special to do this spring and summer.

Open Monday to Saturday, 11.30am to 2pm and 4.30pm to 8.30pm.

Vibrancy in Ashburton: Formosa


Ashburton’s vibrant and delicious Asian Fusion restaurant Formosa is the brainchild of husband and wife team Chef Dondon Chen and Creative Designer Amber Huang.

 

 

With no business experience – but armed with enthusiasm, a lot of inspiration and a passion for food and culture, Formosa will celebrate its third year this November with a fabulous new summer menu and a gorgeous dessert display, while plans for high tea are well under way.

Lockdown saw Amber and Dondon introduce their delivery service which served many happy customers and ongoing additions to the dine-in and takeaway options.

The fitout includes an open kitchen so you can witness the creation of your food and engage with the friendly chefs while they are in action.

The restaurant has three roomy and uniquely themed spaces: The VIP Room, Chinese Lantern Area and the Red Parasol Area that are perfect for an intimate date night, a family lunch or even a company function for up to 120 guests.

With the success of Formosa and great feedback from customers over the years, a plan to open a branch in Christchurch is something the team is considering.

“Formosa Restaurant aims to always provide excellent quality food and services,” Amber says. “We are considering opening seven days, to make our delectable dishes and mouth-watering desserts available every single day of the week.”

Open Monday to Saturday, 11.30am to 2pm and 4.30pm to 8.30pm.
