Grand Century Restaurant , 84 Tory Street offers authentic Chinese food. I recommend the Crispy Peking Duck (with Orange Sauce) and seasonal Vegetables. These two dishes with some Jasmin tea are more than sufficient for two. Other dishes have been reported as being ‘average’ so this is the selection we always stick to. I can’t recommend their wine either I’m afraid and it lacks ambience. However, they do a good ‘yum char’ (dim sum) – a selection of small dishes – you chose which ones to take as they take them around the tables. Yum Char is available at lunch times only.
My favourite restaurant in Wellington, however, has to be Floriditas, 181 Cuba Street: great pasta, steak and wine!
Also worthy of mention and one of the best restaurants is Ortega Fish Shack, 16 Majoribank Street. You guessed… they specialise in fish. You’ll need to book in advance.
