We dined here last evening and had a great meal. Entree dumplings and BBQ ribs were both spectacular. Beef and noodles and crispy chicken for mains were both excellent. Highly recommended for Vietnamese.

Have been to restaurant 88 a couple of times many years ago and remember it fondly. Went recently while visiting family and had a really great meal. Dessert in particular was spectacular; had the coconut icecream with mango and a white vietnamese coffee. Really good. Only wish they did a non-traditionally-vegetarian version of pho.

Go to Restaurant 88! I've eaten here twice and both times, the food has been incredibly delicious. Everything is lovingly prepared, and the menu offerings are creative without being crazy. I particularly loved the Lemongrass Beef Salad - light yet satisfying and full of flavor, with plenty of fresh herbs, tender meat, and perfectly crispy spring roll bites on top. For dessert, don't miss the sticky rice wrapped in banana leaf. We practically licked the plate it was so yummy. My dining companions were equally pleased with their meals.

Service was excellent and the restaurant has a modern, upscale feel and classy decor. Prices are very reasonable for this high level of quality. If I lived in Wellington I would be a regular. All around a great place!

We love coming here for an extended family dinner as an alternative to the Sunday roast at one of our homes. The service is always the best, they are attentive friendly and patient. The food is always beautifully fresh and tasty. As a large group we've tried a lot of the menu and every choice is a good one.

Tried this Vietamese restaurant last night after a couple of recommendations and after a fantastic meal and service we will definitely coming back. The service is first rate and the food is fresh and delicious, filling but does not overfill you, great portions and good value.
