Ahi is proud to use only the finest New Zealand produce.

Across 8 episodes of their TV Show, A New Zealand Food Story, Ben and his team seek to answer the question “what is New Zealand food?” The series sees the Ahi team juggle both the logistics of designing and building the physical restaurant, while at the same time travelling the country to seek inspiration on the elements of New Zealand that will shape the menu at Ahi.
