Inspired by the flavours and vibrancy of South East Asian street food and hawker markets, Harry’s is an expression of love in food form for a region and people we’ve come to greatly admire and respect. Named after Harry, local raconteur and hospitality legend, we’re keeping the spirit of fun that was the original Harry’s, but moved the food focus to Asia, with drinks to match.

Make a Reservation


Harry’s Hawker House is a place where fresh flavours and local ingredients are matched with regional wines and beer. But to really kick the evening off, start with one of our cocktails, inspired by Old Shanghai and Singapore, with fresh, seasonal fruit. There are three dining options – the raised Chef’s Dining area and Chef’s Table. Both can be booked (sittings at 6pm and 8pm). The rest of the space is real Hawker-style – no reservations and casual is the name of the game.


Harry’s is owned by Tania and Matt Bouterey, the folk who also run the award winning Urban Eatery a few blocks away in downtown Nelson. Chef Riki Day has created a menu influenced by classic dishes with his own signature twist and using as many home-grown ingredients as he can get his hands on.
