Can't rave enough about the food and flavour of the items we chose of the menu. We went for a lunch and decided to share 4 small plates and even though they were all delicious, the sweet n sour pork was a 10/10. Menu has a great selection to suit everyone and I am looking forward to returning and try some other dishes. Service scored top marks too. Waiter attentive and engaged.

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 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.
