Although this restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside, the food is amazing and definitely worth trying. This place is a little gem, they have vegetarian and veganised all the Malaysian food very well. in my opinion, i have tried many different Asian restaurants and curry's and what not, but i think that Aunty Mena's as the best food ever.
Even my non-vegetarian/vegan friends love it!

What i would recommend: chicken nuggets, satay, tofu curry, spring roll, mee goreng, roti, basically anything!

loved the menu - the service - simple surroundings but delicious food and good prices. Lots of variety - we had tofu curry on coconut rice and wontons - enough for two for lunch for less than $20.- lots of things on the menu I wanted to try - guess Ill be back!!!

I could eat everything on the menu, which is always overwhelming but exciting! Every choice I made was excellent. Especially the Aunty Mena special. So cheap without scrimping on taste. Friendly and fun staff!

It was raining when I visited Wellington, so I was particularly happy to find warm, filling vegan food at Aunty Mena's. I would echo earlier reviews in saying that the place doesn't look like much, but the service is friendly and the food is delicious and fresh. It's well worth stopping if you're in the area. Like many smaller places in New Zealand, they don't take credit cards so either use your debit card or get cash before you come.
