This was my first time here but I'll definitely be back. The food was great, lots of fresh and clean flavours. Plenty of fresh herbs- coriander and mint were used in typical Vietnamese fashion and the spicy dishes were flavoursome but not too spicy.

Haven't been for awhile and had forgotten how beautiful and fresh the food is. Our out of town guests were extremely impressed with the quality and presentation. Service still extremely attentive but discreet. Thank you to all at Restaurant 88 for a lovely evening.

Another of my favourites in Wellington. Fresh ingredients used to produce flavoursome and aromatic Asian food. Give it a go.

My husband and I are off to Vietnam in a couple of weeks so thought we would have a sneak preview of what to expect while there. The friends we... More

This was a beautifully presented restaurant with very efficient staff, great service and fantastic food. Thoroughly recommend the Sugar Prawn and chicken wings entries and the pork platter main.

I didn't know much about food from Vietnam so didn't know what to expect. I wasn't disappointed though. The food was delicious, colourful, and really great value, and the staff are friendly and helpful. Well worth a visit.

Vietnamese with a twist, in a sophisticated grown up environment. Always the same, always good food, good prices and always good service

The food here was amazing! Delish! The restaurant was filled with fragrant aroma of cooking. It was quite busy that night when I was there but service was attentive and very good. The owners and the waiters were friendly. Love the atmosphere of the place too. This was easily one of the best foods I had during my holiday. I... More
