My mum and I had travelled down to Christchurch for her birthday weekend. We were staying in riccarton and discovered a Buddha stix just around the corner from our hotel. We have always enjoyed our dinners at the Petone, Wellington restaurant and thought we would try our luck here! We were not disappointed. The food and the service were both... More

The restaurant has a very good and varied menu with something for everyone, the variety was impressive. The only slightly negative comment was that it was packed and noisy but the service was very very good. Well worth the experience and I bet you could go there several times and still find something hidden in the interesting menu.

I really enjoyed my fresh Vietnamese salad witj Kumara chips rice and a beer. At NZD30 seemed a bit costly for what it was, but enjoyable.

Service is lacking, the waitresses are not very attentive (except... More

This is a busy restaurant, booking a table in advance is a good idea. The tables are close together and a little cramped. The food is above average, freshly made, with good flavours and the portions are large. When we went on a Saturday night the place was packed, the young staff looked rushed and the service was a little... More

Popped on for a quick bite to eat before flying out of CHCH. Food was great and very fresh tasting. Service upon our request was very fast. Have been here several times and it is always consistent. Can be a little noisy when busy

This is our favourite restaurant, we come here all the time. The entrees and main meals are exceptional! The deserts are rubbish. Recently their service has dropped off a bit but it could be due to being so popular and busy
