Fabulous

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

The food was tasty with wonderful Asian flavours. My favourite: salmon done two ways. Choose a selection of dishes and share them for best tasting experince. One dish per person plus rice is a good amount. The service was great and not to be faulted. The bar out the back is great for a pre dinner drink. We look forward... More

My wife booked a table well in advance for Valentine's day but we were put in a make shift spot where my chair partially obscured a walkway so waiters kept bumping into me. The delicious cheese parcels came with a dip in a pot too small to actually dip them, so I asked for a bowl to use. The chef... More

This is fast becoming my go-to when I want something to get the tastebuds going. Over a few visits I've eaten my way through a good two thirds of the menu and nothing has been a disappointment. The duck curry, cheese parcels, papaya salad and dumplings are consistently good, but nothing on the menu has disappointed. They also do cocktails... More

This place ticked so many boxes. Although we hadn't booked and the place was full, we were able to eat out the back in a well appointed courtyard. I felt this was better than sitting inside which was busy. The menu had a great selection of food and we settled for 4 plates to share. The papaya salad was wonderfully... More

Sat outside in the courtyard. Just me-in Wellington for work. Dined on some fine dumplings-shu mai- asian greens and a gorgeous Riesling. Great service and wonderful atmosphere. Good value in a stylish setting. Second time here and won't be the last.
