Came here with a group of friends one Sunday night.
Mains were plentiful. I had the pho, which was good (although not the best I've had in Wellington). Also had the sticky rice pudding - very good.
Group had a bottle of wine, my share of the bill was $35 which is pretty good for a night out.
We were the last table to leave and I like that the restaurant let us stay as long as we liked and kept refilling our water.
Service was excellent and very accommodating.

Had a wonderful dinner here with friends.

We had a number of dishes (3 entrees and 2 mains for 3 adults) and shared these. It was not issue to have these all come out at the same time. Portion size was good and all the dishes were beautifully presented.

Food was fresh and tasted beautiful.

We also had dessert (brownie, cremee brulee and creme caramel) which unfortunately were all let downs.

I will not hesitate to go back here for dinner.

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.
