What a delight to order a chicken middle salad at the pop up stall at Moore Wilson. It was fresh and delicious. Thanks

Hi, thanks for that. Come and visit us next time we're at Moore Wilson again. Otherwise, you can get the same dishes at the restaurant just located across the road during lunch time. Linh More

Vibe - amazing Food - amazing (and will accommodate for food allergies) Drinks - amazing Restaurant 88 was recommended by our hotel. I would suggest reservations on Fri and weekends. The service was friendly and the menu was as creative as the food flavorful!

A very chic restaurant, awesomely decorated, see my photos. Very clean, the guy put on hygienic gloves before preparing sandwiches (banh mi). My lemongrass beef salad was scrumptious. Will come back soon.

First came here 5 years ago when my son moved to NZ . We try to come here on each visit since and doesn't disappoint. Fresh flavour good choice on menu and good choice of wine by the glass. Fast efficient service we will be back on our next visit 😎

We had a group of six friends go out for the husbands birthday. As always the food was fantastic and service quick. We stayed on long after our meal was finished and staff made us feel comfortable and in no rush to leave.

Top rate fusion food...service #1 from entry until departure. The stuffed chicken wings were superb and the baked fish on banana leaf delicious. Very realistic pricing for both the food and wine. A very delectable night.

We've eaten here several times over the years and always found it great, however, last week it was very average. Whether it's changed hands recently I'm not sure. Our drink orders were taken first and 25 minutes later we were still waiting. It was a Wednesday night and the restaurant was almost empty. After asking for our drinks again they... More

Wonderful fresh flavours and delicious. I adore this restaurant and can recommend the banana lead fish and the shaking beef. Both are mouthwatering.

We scored a great table without a booking on a busy Friday night for 6. Food was pretty quick when I counted a busy table of 24 right next to us.This did not hinder the service or the food at all. We shared the basket of crispy dumplings and spring rolls as well as the roast duck wraps to start.Both... More
