A long narrow restaurant with an even narrower upstairs. Loud music, but great food. We had the Pork Belly, Tempura fish, and Mushroom risotto, together with a reasonably priced bottle of wine. The food was well presented, delicious, and also reasonably priced. We all enjoyed the experience.

I booked a table for the two of us for our 10 th wedding anniversary and told the girl this and asked if we could have a corner table. There were no other bookings at that time so I was optimistic of a nice quiet table. When we arrived we were given a table right in the middle of the... More

I've been to Juniper often and it is always reliable for quick service and some of the yummiest fries in Wellington. I've been there for after work drinks, for dinner and for dessert. Most recently we had the Wellington on a Plate burger, a tender and delicious chicken concoction, accompanied by the afore mentioned fries - total winner! Not a... More

The food was average, wine tasted like wet cardboard, they forgot our dessert. Seriously the worst worst dining experience I've had. Well done. You really suck.

I went there last night with a couple of friends to try the WOAP burger- it was great! The chips were hot and nicely salted, and the buffalo chicken sauce was spot on. You could tell it was a busy night at Juniper but the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and we stayed at the table for about 90... More

It was Friday night and the Team needed a decent feed after a hard days work. Junipers located on ......Street is set out with a bar at the front and a couple of long narrow "corridors" with tables lined up in them. There were five of us and we were ushered to a table in the back row. A personable... More

Wellington an a plate food was well presented. Another good meal from Juniper. The disappointment was in the condition of the bathroom. The bathroom floor was covered in paint splashes, the flooring edges and cubicle stand surrounds were very black and dirty (floor is mid brown colour). A good clean would be appreciated. The cubicle door lock had loose screws... More

I have been to this restaurant 4 times in a big group of 20. It does get a bit chaotic and noisy and sometimes the staff has been a bit flustered. Generally, the meals have come out in a timely manner. One negative for me is our table is long with bench seating on one side against a wall which... More
