Contemporary New Zealand cuisine in a relaxed and welcoming environment  

During Expo 2020 Dubai, we welcomed more than 40,000 diners to the award-winning Tiaki restaurant where they had the opportunity to taste the outstanding quality of New Zealand’s food and beverage offering. 

In Aotearoa New Zealand, there is a special connection to the land and sea.


It is a relationship founded on care, respect and an understanding that when nature thrives, we all thrive.

Combining this connection and ethos with the lush, green pastures, fertile soil, and cool, clear waters, the results are incredible – outstanding, great-tasting, nutritious produce, from a place you can trust.
