Welcome to Alivate Asian Fusion.

We aim to deliver top quality local produce fused with delicious Asian flavours, creating a menu that is not only authentic, but memorable. 

Located on the beautiful Wanaka lake front, situated above street level, our restaurant boasts views that match our food, simply to die for. There is no other place in Wanaka to spend a sunny afternoon than our sun soaked balcony, wether that be apres ski or after a long day on the lake. 

Wanting to create a fun and interactive dining experience, our culinary team have designed our menu to share, allowing for guests to taste a multitude of flavours inspired from Asian cuisine. 

Fusion doesn't just belong in the kitchen at Alivate, our mixologists have taken a range of classic cocktails and added an unique spin, showcasing their own inspiration on Asian flavours. 

Let us show you a dining experience to remember.
