Dined here with friends on our weekend visit to Wellington after a family member’s recommendation and we all loved the food. Fresh and beautifully cooked dishes nothing could be faulted. Definitely will be returning on our next visit. We shared our plates and Popcorn chicken...was a standard out dish.More

WOW, ultra tasty food and superb service. Highlight was the Bao and pop corn chicken. Not to forget the salted lemonade. No wonder it is always packed.

We have been trying to book a table at Apache for a long time but due to it's popularity, we have not been able to book the night we wanted. We finally got in last night (21/5/21) and were not disappointed. The food was delicious...and the service was outstanding. Our age group was 60s, 70s, 80s and we enjoyed it so much, as we left, we booked a table for our next visit to Wellington.More

We had our meal as takeaway. It was fabulous! The green papaya salad was the best I have had since Thailand. Super fresh ingredients, just the right degree of hot, not dulled down which was perfect.

Sharing plates of food is the best way to enjoy this menu. Not much suitable for vegetarians, and if you don’t eat fish you are also a little limited. Beef cubes were amazing. Good wine selection. Lamb salad rather bland, but vegetables very fresh in...it. Service indifferent. The hype for this restaurant did not live up to expectation.More

Although one of two small variations to their longstanding menu would be most welcome, all courses were up to their usual high standard. Helpful waiter.

Google did not disappoint when we searched for 'best restaurants in Wellington'....Was a last minute booking yet they accommodated us, the food was exceptional!! We ordered 3 things off the menu, 2 small plates and a main and every dish delighted!! The Tuna Colada was...a standout!! Service was friendly and efficient, the decor a little tired and not in keeping with the standard of the food but was welcoming. Would definitely recommend!!More

We booked for lunch and the restaurant was nice and busy which was great to see. Booking was easy through their website which was great. Service was great, friendly and obliging. The menu selections were excellent for lunch and when our dishes arrived, looked and...smelled amazing. The papaya salad was nice and spicy, the duck curry was out of this world. Very, very happy with our visit and we will definitely visit again. Thanks for being open during these very challenging times for the industry, and for treating us to something very special in a friendly and happy way.More

I've been to Apache quite a few times and have always had an excellent meal. Saturday was no exception. Food was delish - shaking beef, chicken salad, aubergine, salmon and prawn dish. All such great flavours. Highly recommend.

Coeliac safe!!! The staff and chef couldn’t have been more attentive to our coeliac (gluten free) enquiries and requests. They really made us feel cared for and listened to. Then the food arrives… absolutely delicious, creative flavours, and incredibly fresh. Wonderful place, we will certainly...be back!More
