Amazing food and great service. I highly recommend Spring kitchen for the while dining experience. Only small issue was the speed of the cocktails in that they came out late, but the wine was quick.
Also if you’re going to get a pudding, get the brownie. The pineapple was a bit underwhelming and too hard in places. Other than that it was a fantastic evening. Go and enjoy.

The waitstaff were so lovely from the moment you step into the restaurant. The menu including the cocktail menu is unique with fusion elements intertwined, which I didn't think would work but was pleasantly surprised. The food was amazing, so tasty. Would recommend to everyone!

We had a delightful meal. All the dishes were interesting and passed the 'could I cook that at home test'. The desserts were the highlight. The brownie was the best gooey, chocolatey substance and exactly the right size. The poached pear was perfect, and set off by the pale orange, just slightly savoury mousse. They mixed a mocktail especially for the birthday girl, and it was just what was hoped for. Highly recommended.

My partner and I had dinner here before a play. It was a beautiful setting - the furnishings and ambience are in tune with the history of the building. The service was impeccable, staff were attentive without being overbearing.

For entrees, we tried the Gorgonzola bread (amazing!!!), lamb chop and salmon.
For mains we got the duck breast & pork belly with a side of cauliflower. Overall, the food we tried was delicious with the exception of the pork which I found to be dry and without much sauce.

We recommend Spring Kitchen especially with the First Table discount (it paid for our bottle of wine!).

I am a Restaurant manager, and coming over here I was impressed. The service was great! We were acknowledged as soon as we got there. The staff were very hands on and pay a lot of attention to detail. The food was amazing too, i had a curry soup and the steak they have on the menu. It was out of this world. I would say that dining over here has been the best I've had yet in New Zealand.

From the moment 6 of us arrived at the restaurant we knew we were going to enjoy our evening. We were met by Guy and Drew and made to feel special from that point. The food was beautiful ...Guy was just lovely and so was Drew and our drinks waiter. We were in Wellington for 4 days and we ate out for every meal..Spring Kitchen was the best by far. Thank you also to the chef and kitchen staff. Linda

I had the best steak for quite sometime! Love the quiet ambiance and friendly staff. Portion is enough for me but perhaps for the guys it would be a little bit on the tiny size. But overall food is superb!

Second time to the spring kitchen. The standard was excellent yet again. The food was outstanding and would have rated a 5/5 apart from the fish of the day being quite ordinary in flavour, possibly a little over done.

I reccomend this place for those who enjoy a good fusion restaurant and great flavors.

Really wonderful experience- the vibe was really romantic and fancy, and it didn't feel at all as though we were treated any different for being first table customers. The food was really glorious- we thought the "snacks" and the entrees were the most exceptional. Would definitely recommend!

Entrees was really good. Love the Truffle Chicken Kultra, the waiter recommended the dip but I think it’s better without. We ordered 3 mains, the fish of the days and beef was good but not the pork belly. Overall really nice restaurant

Excellent dining experience from start to finish. We were a table of 4 and all happy with the excellent food. The service was attentive and fun, but never intrusive. Really couldn't fault anything, other than it was surprising they had run out of fish of the day ( salmon entree was still delicious) and there was not a cider to be had at all. Would definitely return.

What a beautiful intimate place for a fine dining experience for a special occasion. Beautifully presented food, wonderful service. Amazing value. This is high end dining. Don’t expect hearty pub food but do experience fine dining at its best.

We had friends join us at the last minute, we understood they would not be included in the FT offer but staff quickly shuffled furniture to accommodate us and them. Right from the start the service was outstanding.
Complimentary tasters followed by our entree choices all came out in good time. The Woap burger was well received as was the Beef Cheek and Pork Belly. Portion size and presentation perfect.
Will definitely return here.

Food was impressive with the Asian fusion menu. We chose most of the Indian influence dishes which were surprisingly balanced.

The supervior was attentive, friendly and professional.

We really enjoyed our dinner :)

The food at Spring Kitchen was an interesting fusion of Indian and NZ cuisine. There is a variety of breads you can choose as a starter, which are super yummy and quite filling. The portions of the mains are a bit small as usual in restaurants like this one. The Parmesan fries did not really taste like Parmesan at all, which was a bit disappointing. The service was attentive and everything worked out fine with our First Table booking. All in all, a very nice evening.

We were sat in a well groomed dining room near the kitchen. The service was quick and pleasant. We were served our drinks quickly and an amuse-bouche of beef tartare was brought out to start us off. It was delicious and I could have had 10 of them. We started off with the lamb chops and a Naan. We were a little embarrassed to find ourselves sharing a single lamb chop when the menu clearly states plural chops, but it was delicious nonetheless. The Naan was good, but nothing experimental or different really. As a main, I had the pork belly which I haphazardly paired with a red as I am a classless philistine. My partner had the steak and a wine Spritzer. Both meals were delicious and although they did not look substantial, we both finished our meals feeling satiated. I finished the night off with a ruby port wine and the chocolate brownie and my partner had the sundae. Both deserts and wine were very good. Allover, it was a very nice meal with good service and a nice atmosphere. I don't know if I would go running back necessarily, but I would definitely recommend their interesting mix of Western and Eastern influences at least once.

Lovely evening. Attentive knowledgeable wait staff, without being intrusive. Quiet intimate atmosphere where we could hear each other talk. Food was beautiful and best of all virtually all of the food was gluten free. Great place to go.
