Reliable menu

Have been here often as I like the menu and it is a good alternative to my regular place to dine. Food is consistent and staff helpful.

There were too many delicious choices on the menu. Presented beautifully and very tasty. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. We were not rushed at the end of the evening even though we were the last table there.

We enjoyed a great lunch looking out over the bay. My salad had some yummy ingredients. The chicken was tasty with a lovely yoghurt dressing.

Fusion is at the top of Timaru's Bay Hill and when the weather is good the outside dining is great because you have views of the mountains and Caroline Bay. We dine regularly at Fusion and the food is always top notch and the staff and service excellent.

We were not impressed with the service at Fusion. The meal great. The waitress letting us know of the specials not very good had to ask for her explain some of the dishes again as she sounded in to much of hurry. We had to wait for over an hour for our meals not good enough as we where there... More
