Chim Choo Ree Restaurant – Hamilton

  • Central location
  • Great wine list
  • Open and spacious
  • Amazing food

Chim Choo Ree restaurant menu may have been a touch pricey, but the food was beautifully presented, tasted amazing and we enjoyed it with an equally fine wine. Tables were designed to fit four so as a couple we felt a little far away from each other. Some tables have a river view. Love the art deco flair of the restaurant.

The main menu is a la carte and features great vegetarian options as well as catering for most dietary requirements including gluten intolerance.

Located at The Brewery Building, 14 Anzac Parade in Hamilton and a nice walk along the river from almost anywhere central, Chim-Choo-Ree specialises in NZ/European styled cuisine. Apparently this restaurant is named after a bird – the Chim Choo Ree

The overall stylish location and spacious premises that the restaurant is housed in are well designed and decorated. The brewery building is a standalone space, but oddly the restaurant shares the space within the building with another business.

Although there isn’t much information available for Chimchooree on their website, they have clearly been around since 2011 in Hamilton, and are an amazing destination for fine dining from 5pm Monday to Saturday.

    Bleu D’Auvergne is creamy ivory colour, dotted with blue-green mould due to the Penicillium roqueforti, which gives the cheese its typical bluish-green veins.
  • comte young
    Comté cheese paste is firm and supple and melts in the mouth, leaving a sweet taste. The salt is strong but balanced and the flavour has a nutty tang.
  • fromager affinois a la coupe
    Mild and buttery, it is an amazing addition to the Brie world. It’s produced from milk that has been specially filtered to break down some of the fat content; yielding a lighter, smoother, silkier texture than other Brie.
