Awesome.. awesome.. awesome.. fantastic service, amazing food, nice atmosphere... wonderful knowledgeable staff.. been my favourite Wellington restaurant for a while now.. great little bar right at the back of the restaurant with a nice outside garden bar with gas heaters and rugs if it gets cool - nice even if you are a non smoker!

The entrance is quite narrow - you may miss it if you don't look for it. It's a few metres down the Reading Cinema, towards the Embassy Theatre. The decor is modern and warm. The only drawback is that the seats are not that comfortable. Food is fabulous, and I love their long list of lovely cocktails. However, using disposable chopsticks in a fine-dining restaurant is a little more than unclassy.
It is in the same league with Ancestral and Chow in Wellington.

Food has subtle flavoring and is well prepared. Prices are reasonable and the winelist is well stocked, nice wines good pricing. Majority of the guests are the urban working crowd. Desert are also good a rarety with asian style restaurants.

had to wait 40 minutes fir our drinks (though in fairness to them they didn't charge us for it because of this).
the entrées were amazing, but the mains were really disappointing. recommend sticking to entrée.
why do asian places insist on re-using cutlery. after finishing our entrees they put the cutlery back on fhe table to be reused for the mains.

If you like great food and great atmosphere then yet again there is another choice in Wellies. I would have to say the pork wontons and the green papaya salad were to die for!!! Go out the back and have a drink in the courtyard first, and make sure you book to get a good table. We enjoyed the service and I would go back there. Enjoy!
