Ara hospitality students in Timaru put their customer service and cooking skills to the test by running a restaurant and bar on campus that caters to paying customers.
Starz Restaurant is open to the public at certain times of the year (see below) and also hosts one-off functions, demonstrations, themed nights and chef’s table dining experiences.
The restaurant prepares students by giving them confidence in a real-world environment and adds to the comprehensive nature of their hospitality education. Menus are developed to support our students’ learning and to offer a selection to tempt the palate of our diners. They include vegetarian, dairy-free and gluten-free options and may change depending on the season and teaching requirements.
