A Little bit of Japan in the Heart of Blenheim
A long time Marlborough favourite, The Bamboo Garden Restaurant operated for many years out of its 100 year old home on Maxwell Road, Blenheim before a tragic fire burnt it to the ground in January 2009.
Faced with a complete rebuild, Tony Fitzpatrick took the opportunity to redesign the restaurant with inspiration from the traditional Japanese houses in the mountain village in Japan where he spent some time previously. Using large wooden beams and plaster finish infill walls this restaurant has captured the essence of the traditional Japanese style architecture in a modern setting.
With its wide timber verandah and Japanese inspired garden this truly is a little piece of Japan in Marlborough, which has cemented itself as a Marlborough favourite.
