My most favorite dish is the grilled pork belly and springroll bun. My friend had the beef pho which is amazingly delicious. The coffee is self-made in Vietnamese traditional way. The food is worth the money. Will come back.

Located on the famous building which once used to house first finest restaurant in New Zealand - "Orsini" come and enjoy the relax ambiance on heart of Cuba street. We served modern Vietnamese food style by blending our family food recipe, street food in Vietnam and the ingredients that available from the local in Wellington. Our aim is to providing cozy place where peoples hangout with their friends, families and clients to experience Vietnamese food...just like you would experience in Vietnam....Sharing plates-roll your own-having great moments...
