Fantastic Feast!

Eight of us dined at Dragonfly a few days ago. Absolutely amazing food. Loved the presentation, the flavours, the atmosphere. Everything tasted authentic and prepared with care. Highly recommend!

this establishment was recommended to us by a local beautician, so we checked reviews on trip advisor and thought why not? We are so pleased we did! Firstly, make a booking as tables fill up fast. This place is pumping. The staff are wonderful, helpful but also have great sense of humour. The food - Devine. The portions are designed... More

Can't believe we have been based in Wellington almost seven years and have just discovered this place! Truly excellent menu. Went on consecutive evenings! Loved the pork and chive dumplings. And everything else.

Love the food here especially the slow cooked beef curry. Great decor, atmosphere and wait staff. Very cool little outside bar out back with heated seats. Great for an evening of food and drinks or for a few nibbles and cocktails.

Great menu selections for sharing. The food was very good and the setting comfortable, although we sat inside, Dragonfly has a great outdoor bar / lounge styled patio that would be perfect for large groups or a lively start to your night. Although the service was disappointing and our waitress started her evening with us on a surly tone, the... More

We had booked at another place with similar name by mistake so couldn't get a table but loved sitting in a table in the courtyard. Food was beautifully presented and service was great.
