Starz restaurant Timaru


Tamesa hospitality students in Timaru put their customer service and cooking skills to the test by running a restaurant and bar on campus that caters to paying customers.

Starz Restaurant is open to the public at certain times of the year and also hosts one-off functions, demonstrations, themed nights and chef’s table dining experiences.

The restaurant prepares students by giving them confidence in a real-world environment and adds to the comprehensive nature of their hospitality education. Menus are developed to support our students’ learning and to offer a selection to tempt the palate of our diners. They include vegetarian, dairy-free and gluten-free options and may change depending on the season and teaching requirements.

Starz opening dates and times for 2018 will be posted here when confirmed. If you’d like to receive more information or join our mailing list, please [email protected].
