Great vibe great food !

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.

This is one of my 'go to' restaurants in Wellington. Especially with a group of four or more you get the delight of ordering many items from the menu and having a shared tasting. Really delicious flavours. Atmosphere is modern asian and quite cosy if you get a table inside. Reasonably priced. Wait staff are fun and helpful. Cocktails very... More

Went for drinks with friends and had a few drinks in the bar area. Staff were really friendly and the service was great. Asked after a table for dinner but tables were booked so had meals at table in bar which was great. Full restaurant menu in bar. Food was all excellent. A good range of gluten free options also.

Always love the food here, different and very yummy. Great vegetarian options too. Cool decor too, although seats can be uncomfortable over a long period.

Groovy place on Courtenay for groups, or couples... with reliable, interesting asian fusion fare that wont break the bank. The back yard bar is also worth a visit for a cocktail if you are early for your table or have to wait.

Went for dinner on Friday evening. Entrees were a Organic Tofu with Japanese flavourings and Deep Fried Crumbed Chicken Wings with an interesting plum sauce. The main of wok fried Calamari and Baby Octopus was spoiled by the Octopus being a little tough. The Pork and Prawns in XO Sauce was enjoyable but a little dry. A Bottle of Riesling... More

Went with a group of 7 friends for dinner and everyone of us had a fabulous meal! The salmon, lemon grass chicken and duck were just sublime!

Wow! This place is amazing...where to start. They were really busy so we grabbed a table in the courtyard. Service took a little while but once we had their attention they were great. Highly recommend choosing a drink from the cocktail list. I had 'China Girl' mmmm Yum! Choosing small plates means you get to share and taste the different... More

Dragonfly is hands down my favourite place to eat in Wellington, and that's from someone who's eaten at Hippopotamus (also a favourite), Logan Brown, and White House. I no longer live in Wellington, but on a recent visit back a meal here was at the top of my list. The food is delicious: a great range of starters, mains, and... More
