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

Amazing table service and food, the paua fritters are an absolute must-try! The squid was okay but there was too many bean sprouts in the "salad." Apart from that it was a lovely dinner, will definitely be back :)

Ordered some great bruschetta, and should have also ordered the buns for starters too. Ribs were good but would like the buns more. Very large curries, and the entire beef brisket dish was amazing although a bit smaller. Overall great service as always.
