Under the management of Saranne James (Executive Chef), Tirohana Estate offers both casual and fine dining in either its restaurant (celebrating global cuisine) or through a more casual dining option on its photogenic terraces (weather permitting).

So whether or not you prefer a mouthwatering five course menu, afternoon High Tea, a winter Sunday Roast or summer BBQ, or would like to sample a taste of traditional Indian cuisine to Mexican fare (during thematic seasons), then there is always something different to experience at Tirohana.

In the autumn and winter, the ambience is punctuated by a huge roaring fire along with a pot bellied stove in the adjacent tasting area (from which our clients might even wish a simple bowl of hot soup and fresh bread while exploring the joys of the Wairarapa in a cold winter’s day).

In the spring, summer and autumn months, Tirohana extends its doors to overlap onto the beautifully landscaped Tirohana terraces, overlooking the photogenic vines.  See the restaurant photo gallery.
