When I come to Wellington, I try and have food that it is less common back home. Vietnamese ticked that box so we came here. Food was tasty, fresh and authentic. For 100 dollars for two (two starters, two main, 4 beers) also think we'll priced. We had the sticky ribs and duck rolls to start. Both moreish and with... More

We recently dined at Restaurant 88 with friends and the experience was thoroughly enjoyable. The food was delicious and the staff were very attentive without being intrusive. The calamari and prawn sticks were fantastic.

We dined here on a Friday night. We were served by Linh who was an exceptional waitress. The service was great. The waitress was very considerate. When we were unsure if she had brought the right dish (the names very very difficult), she quickly (without us asking) brought the menu in order to assure us that it is correct. The... More

We had the spring rolls, the pho, and the dish with the "three"--all were delicious! Was a bit pricey but the food and portions were worth it and glad we visited here while in Wellington.

It's not in the nicest area but Restaurant 88 stands out - it looks a bit sharper, a bit cleaner, a bit nicer than a lot of the places around. Step in and it's lives up to its appearance - the service was fine, the food was very good. While a little more expensive than some Vietnamese places - it... More

Had this restaurant recommended by friends. Went here for lunch on a Friday, was in nice and early so managed to beat the rush as they are only open for a few lunches each week so it can be popular. Food was good quality and portions were a good size. The Vietnamese coffee was really nice and aromatic.... Worth a... More
