Cool little restaurant in the heart of Wellington. Plenty of options for Asian style food on the menu. Super quick service from friendly staff. Nothing flash here really. Just great food, good service and reasonable prices. Keep coming back when staying in the city.

This is a good place for a big group, or for buying a bunch of kids dinner. The service is good, the portions large & there's a big range of choices. Its not 5-star dining & its not trying to be, excellent meal.
