Come here for the atmosphere and the fun, but don't come for much else. This is the most popular watering hole for Wellington students so you're in for a party on the weekend. Definitely go once even if it's just for the experience and to reminisce on the good old days!

Oriental Kingdom is a great spot for a cheap, delicious Malaysian meal. The mains are enormous and mostly around the $12 to $17 mark, but if it’s the dark side of payday, the <$10 roti is a solid choice.

On the weekend, Oriental Kingdom is a popular choice for big groups of university students looking to booze before a big night on the town – which, for the other diners, means that dinner often comes with a show. If you’re prepared for that, you can’t beat Oriental Kingdom for convenience and price, even if the atmosphere (read: wide-screen TVs on silent and fluorescent lights) is nothing to write home about.

Tucked away gem

An excellent Asian eatery. All the classic dishes plus many, many more. I was recommended to visit by a friend so I visited on Friday night while the night market was bustling around me. It is a BYO restaurant so i enjoyed my wine while people watching. I enjoyed it so much i went again on Saturday. Even though it always seems to be busy the service is still very quick, even for a table of 15.
