We thoroughly enjoyed our first experience of Ethiopian food. We had a vegan platter and a yummy lamb dish with the special pancake/bread. The service was friendly. Would recommend .

The Meeting Tree is a very new restaurant in a city served by a wide range of cuisines. The is a very distinct 'flavour', spicy but not very hot (unless you ask for it). We took vegan relatives because there is a wide selection and they were delighted. The every dish comes with a soft bread, like a large pancake,... More

I dropped into The Meeting Tree to pick up some takeaway late on a Friday night on my way home. The staff were all laughing and having a great time, and were very generous with the food. Totally ended my night on a good note. Great people!

The decor looks very good as it's brand new. The service is great, no problems there. However we came with children and ordered mild food, and everything was at least medium. We had the Meeting Tree special, which as advertised is essentially identical to butter chicken. The kids normally love butter chicken, but this was way too spicy when we... More

Reading through all the past reviews I rather felt our dining experience at this restaurant was an outlier..however, we are here to express our view on our latest visit to this newly opened Ethiopian eating place. We bought a groupon voucher which supposed to give us 1 platter, two mains and a salad to share. We arrived at the place... More

After eating some great Ethiopian food in Melbourne we were excited to see Wellingtons first Ethiopian restaurant had opened! Both vegetarians, we ordered the vegan platter and the meser wot - both of which came with yummy sour injera bread. The vegan platter was a great introduction to the different flavours and textures of Ethiopian food, but the meser wat... More

Like the previous reviewer, I was excited to eat at The Meeting Tree. Having never eaten Ethiopian food before, we took a punt and booked a family meal there (with people who have experience with the cuisine). The food is delicious - we opted for a couple of meat (beef & lamb) dishes and the vegan platter - we were... More

As a local Wellingtonian I was excited to go to The Meeting Tree because it is the first Ethiopian restaurant to open in Wellington. The menu offers a variety of dishes from sizzling meat platters and plenty of other meat based curries to a great selection of vegan and vegetarian options. This is great news for me and other vegans... More
