Delightful meal at Vault last night for our family. Friendly and attentive wait staff, food all well presented and incredibly tasty. The children's set meal was high quality too so we had very happy children. Will be back to sample more :)

Oh my flipping goodness - exquisite flavours to die for! We had: peking duck tacos, sweet & sour pork, lamb bruschetta, scallop bruschetta, beef cheek wonton, prawn & coriander dumplings (next level flavour here). Finished off with coconut panacotta, Whittakers mini donuts and chocolate brownie. A fabulous night with friends and fine food - well worth the long wait to finally secure a first table at this venue! Thanks team :) x

Great food, service was great from our waitress but a bit slow here and there. My mother ordered the sous vide beef and it was melt in the mouth, my sister had the pork belly and it was divine, the mash on that was to die for, I ordered the beef brisket which could have been a bit more tender, was a bit chewy but aside from that it was okay. Our entrees were absolutely gorgeous, scallops were some of the best I have ever eaten and the pork belly bao buns were so tender and crispy and yummy. Small plates i cannot fault but I think some of the mains could do with a little work. Overall would highly recommend. Thank you.

Always a great time at vault. We had an umbrella blow over on to us while we were there and the staff were quick to check on us and to secure the rogue umbrella. Thanks again vault!

We had a lovely lunch here, however I was a little disappointed in the food. I ordered the steamed chicken buns which were absolutely beautiful however for $17.70 I only received two very small buns . Very pricey for the quantity and I'm not a big eater! My daughter ordered fries however these were only lukewarm. Desert was nice but again pricey for quantity received.

Really enjoyed our lunch today in the sun.
A tantalising menu read, but reality was they were just ok. Although the meat spring rolls are a must, best thing we had. Wasn’t busy to start and service was average.

Our table really enjoyed our meal at Vault 21. We were celebrating a friend's birthday & the staff really looked us. The food was excellent & the service was perfect, they even brought us out dessert with candles. We will look forward to going back.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Vault, the staff were super attentive and knowledgable. We had a few small dishes which tasted epic, (especially the wontons) as well as the pork belly and tomato curry along with a bottle of TK Pinot to knock it all down. The curry was nice but thats it, it didn't blow us away, it was quite a safe dish. The pork belly however was exquisite. Our waitress did try to joke with us which was a little unprofessional, but it definitely didn't affect our time. Thanks Vault see you again soon.

The small sharing platters are actually quite generous and very tasty. The Asian slaw was a nice surprise-often you leave similar restaurants feeling like you ate nothing but fried or grilled food and few vegetables. The pork cheek croquettes were the highlight for me while my wife loved the large prawns.
The service is friendly but a tad amateurish-I was given the wrong beer and some clutz later accidentally sprayed me with table cleaning spray. All sorted by the staff, I might add.

Food was great, we tried 4 small dishes and 1 main between the three of us, and shared two desserts. A perfect amount of food! We really enjoyed the lamb bruschetta, and the wontons which they are known for were also good (although the filling was less saucey than the last time I had it). Service was good too.

Such a lovely atmosphere for date night, very romantic. Server was wonderful, not too pushy but helpful when answering questions about the menu. Food was fab although the dessert was lacking compared to the mains. Wonderful experience will definitely be back!!

What a wonderful evening! The food was brilliant, from the prawn dumplings and duck spring rolls to the curry and pork belly - we shared the small and large plates and then split the most interesting desert, different textures of chocolate presented beautifully. The atmosphere was relaxed and the service lovely.

Great food, service and atmosphere. This was the last place to try in Dunedin before my mum headed back home to the far north.
I've always wanted to try Vault 21 sober ( I've been many times and many times I do not remember my time at the Vault) and it did not disappoint!! We ordered too much as the menu offered amazing food but we offered the chance to take home our extras which was appreciated.
The duck fat fizz was amazing and my candy floss cosmopolitan hit the midday spot!
Would definitely come back again!!
