I was catching up with my old boss for lunch and we wanted to meet somewhere in the middle. She mentioned Asian Kitchen. I’d never been. We sat in. It’s very popular/busy and a touch on the noisy side. The menu is good. I ordered the Spicy Won Tons. $12.00
Food only took a few minutes to come out.
This was my type of dish. Plenty of wontons with juicy pork and loads of flavour. Nice kick of spice too. Really hit the mark.
I’ve been back since and ordered the same dish takeaway. My workmates were envious. It’s a big meal but worth the afternoon carb attack.
Next visit is imminent!

The service here is pretty good, the place is clean and tidy, and the food comes out fast. But the buck stops there. The food here is seriously underwhelming. The ginger chicken I had wasn t inedible, but I didn t enjoy it at all. It had a strange taste to it. The rice paper rolls were packed with vermicelli and little else. Although, the little bit of fresh mint they added in did pick the flavour up somewhat. I wouldn t come back here, there are much, much better Thai places in the city.
My boyfriend and I have been here a few times now.
Would have to say the food is pretty unremarkable, not bad, just nothing special. Often with Asian restaurants in Wellington they try to do food from all regions of Asia and nothing particularly amazingly. The best thing I’ve gotten here was the satay, which was decent but simple. I have also had the chilli chicken and the laksa, both of which were average.
The service is very brisk and not overly friendly however the prices are good and it is a good place for a byo night if that is the focus. Would return for this, if food was a focus I think I would go elsewhere.
