Saikou TWB delivers premium Asian fusion cuisine in a busy vibrant bar environment, located in Timaru’s CBD, at approach to ‘Bay Hill’ adjacent to loop road, overlooking beautiful Caroline Bay. We offer exceptional Asian fusion cuisine with an emphasis on whiskeys and craft beers. Our chefs offer a sensational menu, designed to be shared (tapas style).

Meals to be shared


Our meals are designed to be shared, Tapas Style. Portion sizes to be savoured, each prepared with expertise and served to perfection. Order a single or variety of dishes to satisfy all tastes and appetites. Using premium quality produce, Saikou chefs have created a sensational Asian fusion menu. Perfect on your own or with a group of friends, while enjoying whisky, wine, Japanese beers, local craft beers or saké.

Unwind & relax


Once derided as somewhat out of fashion, whisk(e)y, whether it's bourbon, Scotch, rye, Japanese whisky, or more unusual global offerings, has come roaring back in popularity. And as with all things whisky-related, Saikou offers the best bar in Timaru to sip in a dram, with a massive (and comparatively inexpensive) selection of rare bottles from special distilleries.
