Our family ate here - two adults and one energetic three year old.
First of all the food was delicious. My husband had steak rare and it was divine. I had market fish. Things like charred sweetcorn elevated flavours no end. They must have a flamethrower out back somewhere.
Service was outstanding - thoughtful and responsive. We didn’t need anything extra or unusual, but the staff made suggestions (like offered to ask chef to make the pizza child size) and also suggesting taking child order first to get that going. We will be back.

We had the most wonderful dining experience at the Wellington Polo Club in Wellington on 17th November 2018! We asked if we could come early as we had Embassy Movie Tickets at 6:25pm and the restaurant we very happy for us to come earlier than 5:00pm so we wouldn't have to rush through our meal. The service was gracious and welcoming and the food was simply delicious with very good size portions! It was a fantastic 'early' dinner and would recommend them to everyone! We will be back! Loved it!

My friend and I had a lovely dinner at The Bangalore Polo Club. There was plenty of interesting variety on their menus and the steak was well portioned and delicious. I can definitely also recommend the dessert calzone.
The most stand out quality of this establishment was by far the staff who were fast, attentive and friendly. It’s the people who make all the difference!

What an outstanding experience!!! Four of us dined before attending the WoW show. Absolutely delicious food (the rocket Parmesan and pear salad, the Brussels sprouts with bacon, and the fish of the day were scrumptious). Great service from Seamus, a new waiter who never left us wanting, and a stylish, sumptuous decor added to a perfect dining experience. Thanks so much Bangalore Polo Club and First Table!!

Of course we are early, but got excellent service (if a bit quirky) from the team, and brilliant meals. They looked awesome, hot, timely; then wow they tasted good. My sister had the lamb which was perfectly cooked, and I enjoyed the burger. Recommend them totally.

Had Saturday lunch with my children, Awesome service by the young gentleman who welcomed and served us
the porkbelly was a hit, my son thought it was the best burger he's had in a long time. We enjoyed our experience

Great service as always. Food didn't seem as tasty as previous times we have dined and what was served didn't always match the description on menu. They are in the process of new management and I wonder if this is the reason behind the changes we noticed.

Staff absolutely great. Food and atmosphere good. Can’t understand why more people don’t support this great restaurant as the food is reasonably priced and a fantastic menu to pick from

Love eating at this place, tried something different this time picking three dishes from the Street food menu that were absolutely lovely, the chips added made for a very fulfilling meal.

The Bangalore was amazing, love the colour scheme, food was delicious. We shared an entree of calamari, large serving and the dipping sauce was so yummy. Mains we had the lamb and pork, both cooked perfectly. Highly recommend the Bangalore. Service was excellent as well.

- dined at The Bangalore Polo Club on

We were served promptly after we were seated and the waitress was very attentive, however after that we had ordered our mains there was very little service. We received our mains and they lacked a lot of flavour. My steak burger was tough and I was unable to eat it. No one came to check how they were so I just left it. Dessert was nice.

First time on first table and dining here since it revamped. Entree Calamari was spot on tender, side salad with pear fresh and generous and the Tandoori? Chicken sliced breast was very tasty. Those Duke cocktails are my new guilty pleasure! The Bangalore Polo Club was a cool oasis in a heatwave , light and airy with great decore. Thanks for the great service as well. We’ll be back for sure.

Love going to this restaurant, great food and brilliant service. Also toilets are pretty cool too!

- dined at The Bangalore Polo Club on

Love the street foods and sides... not too much a fan of the mains (we had the steak) probably we're expecting more tasty sauce to go well with it...

- dined at The Bangalore Polo Club on

5.00pm is an unusual time for dinner but perfectly fine for anyone who is on holiday. Food was very good and presentation wasn't too fussy. Staff were attentive. Decor is amusing and the wallpaper in the bathroom is worth seeing.

Seriously impressed with the food here! We all had something different & each dish was delicious. Starters, mains and desserts of course thanks to First Table! Food was presented beautifully too. Will definitely go back. Thanks for a great evening cerebrating our daughters birthday. We just about had to be rolled out the door

Fantastic meal here again! This place is a must every time we come to Wellington!

Great deal booking with this website, the food I had was good but my friend who had the market fish told me his fish was too salty. The server was ok but could have a bit more of a personality.

Trish Bowden

Absolutely bang on, partner had lamb which was so tender, both myself and daughter had a entree and side for our main which consisted of calamari, broccoli, pork belly and fries which were all fantastic. I couldn’t fit dessert in but they did. A mallowpuff and a meringue dessert, both lovely.
And of course a cocktail each - bang on

Excellend service and food. Very friendly and helpful staff who had a great sense of humour. Thanks for an awesome experience.

- dined at The Bangalore Polo Club on

The atmosphere was great. The staff were friendly and welcoming and attentive. Food came in a good time. Portions were generous, looked amazing and well cooked. I had the calamari which was cooked to perfection. And the pork slider. The only negative was the sauces. None for my slider. And the calamari sauce was more Thai style that didn't really go. We had no water on our table and weren't offered any. Apart from that I would rate it 4 out of 5.

Really enjoyed our experience at The BPC! Prompt, efficient and friendly service. We all enjoyed our mains. My husband particularly enjoyed his tandoori chicken breast, and I very much enjoyed the market fish. Our friends also enjoyed their meals.

Thanks BPC for a great experience, and we will certainly return.

Made to feel most welcome. Ordered the BPC antipasto platter and really did not need to have ordered the two other dishes from the Street food part of the menu as it was more than enough. It was the best restaurant platter we have tried Photo does not show the whole platter

The food,
Presentation was great how ever we thought I look of it could have done with some more seasoning.
Service was quite un-attentive from what we are used to, but this could be preferable to some peoples liking.

took my god daughter to Bangalore Polo Club for lunch before heading off to WOW, the staff were lovely and the restaurant lovely and warm on what was a freezing day. I had the Market Fish, and it was gorgeous, every component a perfect match to the Terakihi, complementing and resulting in every scrap being consumed with real pleasure. The waiting staff also were extremely helpful, courteous and helpful without being annoying. i have always found time at Bangalore Polo Club enjoyable but yesterday beat all other times by far.

What a fantastic evening. Food was very well presented and delicious. For starter we shared the antipasti - so much food!! We then followed this with the market fish - beautifully cooked. Washed down with a mild red wine.
Service was second to none, made to feel very welcome. Toilets are pretty amazing too (worth a look!!). We will be going back!!

The food was really good. My partner got the WOAP burger and said he was a little underwhelmed but the party on a plate lamb was fantastic. I don't know what they did to the potatoes but they were absolutely amazing. Dessert was also great, definitely recommend the caramel baked apples.
Service was good, though I think they got a little distracted when the place filled up more. But friendly staff, would recommend

Very nice place, great staff, at first it was to hot with all the heaters on, however they turned some down for us, the food was great however our wine ended up being a bit more than our food!!! will go back

Food was exactly what we felt like and the staff were friendly. A bit of a hiccup with them not having any record of our booking, but they honoured it anyway with the email from First table as proof.

We ordered a large assortment of platter like dishes so we could sample it all from delicious cauliflower dip, meatballs dressed in fresh tomato sauce, crispy calamari, rustic fries, fresh and vintage cheeses and lots more with tall glasses of honey badgers and craft beer, mixed in with wonderful, attentive service, great music with a splash of decor to set the theme!

Would definitely return and recommend to family and friends!
