Arrived on a cold Wellington evening without any reservations, but was shown to a table by a lovely lady. Meal was excellent & delicious. Service was quick & friendly. Nothing to fault. Will recommend & will definitely be back.

What a wonderful find, we have been to Restaurant 88 twice and will return again. We found it through the entertainment book which made the evening even more reasonably priced. Excellent service as well. Thankyou, Rosemary.

Great fresh food and good service. We ordered everything from the entree menu to share and ordered more pork bun sliders, Vietnamese pancakes and prawns. Every bite was a treat. Highly recommended!

Hello, really sorry to hear about your experience. We will advise the kitchen staff of this matter, and try to improve from it. The kitchen staff and owners are still the same. We're not sure what happened that evening. Kind regards Luke.
