This is a really nice restaurant with good decor and a relaxed atmosphere. The food is amazing - really tasty and great flavours. Have been here a few times already and keep coming back for more to try everything on the menu. The small plates are a great way to sample a few different dishes. Staff and service were also very good. Would highly recommend and look forward to returning.

Tasty cuisine, friendly professional service. Only let down was the cigarette smoke drifting in from a few outside diners... Staff kindly repositioned us when asked. Surprised that was an issue. It's not the 80's.

What a fabulous meal. We bought lots of little dishes and shared between the four of us. A fantastic experience. The staff were amazing (as usual) and we had an awesome table right at the front by the open windows. A lovely experience for our first First Table dining experience. Can’t wait to try some of the other restaurants on offer.

The food and service was amazing! Food came out quickly, it was super delicious. Ordered 7 small dishes between the 2 of us and it was plenty of food, with heaps to take home! The staff were super helpful and polite. Will definitely be back sometime soon!

The food is amazing. We had the Paua fritters, Peking duck tacos, scallop bruscheta, and a couple of mains. The chef is masterful in his or her use of ingredients. I am not usually a fan of Asian fusion but I now know how good it is in capable hands. The dishes had a marvelous harmony of interesting flavors and textures and ingredients. The flavors worked so well we wanted seconds on the entrees.

Food was so good, no doubt. Love the matcha cheesecake. This is the third time I've dined there now, somehow the service this time wasn't that great. We just felt neglected for the last half of our time there. We had to constantly ask for water and had to tell them to clear the table so we could start desserts.
Other than that, it was good.

As always - absolutely exquisite - so fabulous to have an array of sensations for the palate that never disappoint. We had Beef Cheek Wontons, Seared Scallop Bruschetta, Pork Belly Bao Buns, Sweet and Sour Pork, Korean Fried Chicken, chips, two beers and two juices - @ $90 for the three of us it was perfect! Thanks Vault 21 team :)

Excellent food and excellent service on a busy sunny Saturday. We got a table outside just as we wanted. The wait staff was very attentive and got us our drink and food orders promptly. We got the pork belly main and some fried tofu Bao buns and Asian slaw, all of which was fantastic. Would definitely recommend!

It was a wet rainy Dunedin day and we were quickly sat next to a heater to nicely warm ourselves before lunch. The menu was varied and different in an exciting sort of way. The duck tacos and steam buns were a delight and the braised beef just melted in your mouth. We shared the mini chocolate dough nuts for dessert and they certainly lived up to the hype. Vault 21 is a must for a leisurely sunday lunch.

Our overall experience at Vault 21 was wonderful. The food was delicious. We shared a starter plate and then each of us ordered a main meal as well as a salad to share. Each of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals and deciding what to order took us long enough. The staff were lovely but were extremely busy which meant that the attention to the customers we have experienced at other restaurants wasn't evident here - wasn't there fault as they were extremely busy catering to lots of diners. We will definitely be back considering there are still a number of dishes we would still like to try!

What a lovely night! Staff were eager to assist and very kind. Sat us underneath one of their large heaters but at our request turned it down (as it was a little too warm). We tried the duck risotto, which was divine, and the pork belly, which was a generous delicious portion. An excellent dining experience I would do again!

Delicious food- loved the sweet and sour pork!! The mains were on the larger size which was awesome- loved the red curry dish. Dessert was the highlight- whittaker's brownie was very rich and the creme brûlée was excellent. We had 3 servers - the French man and older woman were so friendly and welcoming!!

Great food, ordered the reserve beef and duck confit. Both were delectable. Salmon terrine was something interesting with good flavour combinations but was a bit dry. Also tried the prawn buns but would probably go back to the better pork buns. Eton mess presentation was perfect, just had a bit too much cream and needed more meringue.
Service was friendly and met every need we had, even though it was very busy on a Thursday night. Had a seat by the window and it was nice and warm from the overhead heaters.

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
