a work group stopped by for dinner - the place was full so we ate at a bench in the bar. Shared a variety of dishes and was very happy with the selections. Green mango salad was my favourite but curries also very good.

After a bad experience last evening this was totally different. Fun vibrant place. I ate in the courtyard. Lovely tapas style dishes and the coconut sticky rice pudding is to die for. Attentive and efficient staff. Great ambience. Will make a note and return on my next trip to Wellington.

Not your typical Asian food. This comes with a gastronomical experience that leaves you wanting more! Those beans to start off are to die for, soft shell crab is back on the menu and a must to try. Pork belly cooked twice is divine. Not to mention even the Asian greens they do magic with. Service is super friendly and... More

A group of friends dined here and loved the food. The service was helpful and staff on hand to order drinks and replace water. The food was fresh and tasty and reminded me of eating in Vietnam. Sharing meals is a great idea here , that way you will get to experience a variety of Asian dishes. Booking online is... More

My husband and I went here for tea the other night. The food was amazing especially the pork buns. We ordered a few dishes to share and that was plenty. Great value for money too

Our group enjoyed the Christmas banquet . It was great to have the delicious selection of food brought out for us to share . Good combinations of tastes . Our banquet would not have suited a vegetarian but possibly we could have specified this if needed. A convivial evening .

Wow! A group of 5 of us ordered a very good selection of the menu at Dragonfly and delighted in trying every dish, just when you thought it couldn't get better something else would come out that would knock our socks off! Honestly couldn't fault it. The atmosphere was casual but private and sophisticated all in one, the staff and... More

The atmosphere here is lively and when we arrived there was only seating in the garden bar which has a very pleasant ambiance. The service for our mains was a little slow so it was good that we'd had spring rolls for starters. I had the Angus beef curry and I have to say I found it disappointing. The beef... More

Ambience very good, service good and not that expensive, We had four mains between four of us with two rice dishes and there was ample. The beef and duck were very good as was the salmon two-ways. We are dairy and wheat intolerant and this posed no problems. The sampler cocktails were also good and we even managed a dairy... More
