Went for a birthday dinner and had a great meal. We were sat upstairs at a table for two but with a view out to the street. Not loud but lots of doof doof music from the bars nearby. Didn’t put us off at all...though. Food and service were excellent. Meals were huge and well priced so we definitely didn’t leave hungry. Definitely recommend. Duck curry and tamarind noodles were outstandingMore

Service was pretty poor as I did not get our drinks until after the mains had arrived. Beef Noodle Soup taste like dishwater. Charged 2% extra for Credit Cards. Overated. Would not go back.

Sadly did not live up to the reviews I had read. Entrees - dumplings were like eating a thick pattie rather than a light mix of the ingredient you’d expect for a dumpling inner. Pork during rolls were nice but very oily. Mains - Clay...pot braised pork was odd. Pork was dry left floating in a liquid the texture of soy sauce. The noodle dishes were very expensive for what was received and what was received lacked flavour requiring my to add my own sauce. Will not return as food was below par made worse by how much you paid for it.More

Great food and fast service with a smile! Very happy with my choice... I had a recommendation for chicken with lemon grass and ordered it hot but not super hot and it was exactly right... Thanks

Okay, I'm a huge food fanatic but I also only ever order chicken so make with that what you will. Rock Yard however enticed me with their duck green bao buns and their green crispy chicken off their starter menu and they were absolutely divine!...My friend got the lemongrass chicken which was also divine. We ordered cocktails too and for someone who really hates the taste of alcohol, these were amazing but also did the job which is all I could ask for. Staff were lovely, fast and overall customer service was great and there was a great restaurant atmosphere - it was practically full when we got there, quietened down a bit and then by the time we left it was full again so make sure you get a booking! These guys are popular and for good reason too! Absolutely will come back next time I'm in Wellington and will be recommending to my friends that currently live there! Great restuarant for everyone, there was kids, students, large groups, everything.More

A group of five of us dined here, from ordering to food arriving was exceptionally speedy. Which allowed us to relax and eat our meal with plenty of time to our next event. The Vietnamese pancakes were exceptionally tasty, and very filling (the vege one...held together better than the pork & prawn combo). Sizzling steak dish has tender meat and a selection of vegetables. Will definitely return to try the other tempting items on the menu. Wait staff were delightful (although they only removed half of our dinner plates, which was a little odd).More
