Great Friday night out. Start at the Bar out the back for drinks and even starters. Very casual dining with great service. We shared everything (best way). Recommend the Salmon two ways, baby octopus, and barbecue chicken. Don't skip desert, and don't go boring, order the Ginger Kiss, the house specialty. We had two each, and were stunning.

Exquisite food. Tastes really defined an scrumptious. Lovely friendly helpful staff. Great cocktails. We had salt and pepper chicken, spring rolls which were so so tasty different than the basic spring roll, three cheeses fried puffs so yum the taste of the cheeses came thru sharp an tasty. And nasi goreng. Foods meant to be shared. No problem taking left... More

Nestled along the main street, this inconspicuous store front hides great ambience matched with delicious food. Perfect dumplings and gorgeous dessert were highlights of our night. However, with the small serving size, the wallet took a hit. Not for the poor.

The service was perfect, our wait staff were helpful and prompt. The food was delicious and extremely tasty. The dishes were full of flavour and enjoyed by a range of age groups in our party from 16- 82 years. We look forward to returning.

My wife and I came to Dragonfly for a late night bite. We were offered the bar or the restaurant to sit and both were as pleasant as each other. We opted for the restaurant and was promptly sat. They seemed to have an overkill ratio of staff to parons but one can only assume this is due to the... More

We have been here with a group and tonight just as a couple. Great wine list by the glass and wonderful fresh and interesting menu. Excellent service. Very busy (even on a Monday night) so do book!

Exquisite food here, definitely worth its high rating on TA. We got Octopus Balls, Salt and Pepper Chicken and Pork Buns as entrees, then I had the Beef curry. Pork buns stood out as amazing! The beef fell off the bone and the flavours in the curry were delectable. A very decent portion with rice, and the others at the... More

Went to Dragonfly for dinner with a group on Friday night. Got there early so I had a drink in their bar area out the back. Incredible. I could have spent my night there. The restaurant area is also good - mellow, appropriate lighting for the venue. The food was delicious. Asian influence and every dish was exquisitely presented. Even... More

As you walk through the door you are treated with a range of fragrances most notably honey, lemon grass, coconut, garlic and ginger. The menu provides a hint that all of these flavours will be present but what comes is a complete surprise. Rich flavours and the meats just melt off the bone. And when you think you can eat... More

Best food I have had in Wellington for some time. The salmon dish is wonderful, beef curry is just as good. The duck is also worth a mention. Chicken tastes good but not in the top picks. Great drinks/cocktail menu. Although some are on the expensive side they do also serve your low cost basics. Hendricks Martini with olives is... More
