At Matai, we aim to create powerful tastes and appealing aromas.
Matai is an intimate fine dining restaurant in the heart of Rotorua – a city renowned for its culture and natural beauty. Fuelled by the passion of Head Chef Ryan Gregorash, each dish his team designs is connected to the land and tells a uniquely New Zealand story – seasonal, flavoursome and wildly simplistic, with a focus on ethically and locally sourced ingredients, often foraged close to home.
Everything served at Matai is crafted in our kitchen and prepared to order. Our menus change with the seasons and are dependent on what is fresh and available each day. We offer carefully balanced, flavoursome dishes – meticulously crafted from local ingredients and perfectly presented every time. Those with special dietary requirements are well catered for with our vegan and vegetarian options – there is no compromise on taste.
