Went last minute for a birthday meal. Food was varied, fresh and everyone tried something different and all enjoyed their meal. Quite noisy but didn't spoil our meal.Good service and well priced.

Truly wonderful food - light, full of flavour - strongly recommended ! A gem in Te Aro. You would almost walk past - but don't, head in for a treat - 88 Tory Street :)

Visiting Wellington, we met friends at this restaurant. Decor is lovely and lanterns took us back to Hoi An. Initially felt a little hurried to order, but just ordered starters first ... Staff very pleasant and efficient. Food was delicious, beautifully presented and good sized serves. It was quite busy for a Tuesday evening

The setting of the restaurant from the time you walk in is peaceful, tranquil and modern. It was a lovely setting for a catch-up dinner with a friend, lovely noise levels meant we were able to have a conversation. The food was delicious and fresh.
