A most pleasant family evening. We had a good table in the spacious dining room upstairs. Friendly attentive and unobtrusive service. All dishes were excellent, well prepared and presented. The lamb Wellington and beef cheeks especially good.Highly recommended

A $10 cocktail and pulled pork dinner . . How cosy is that? Rather cramped for room, but thats being picky. Wonderful wait staff. Not a lengthy wait for your meal to arrive. Rather quieter than most restaurants in the CBD

Our team of 9 decided to come here for dinner and funnily enough we all ordered something different. We were glad we booked these guys were busy for a Thursday night and now I know why all the food was amazing, I had the roti with citrus butter and peanut sauce followed by the pork belly which came with a...

Walked in, tables available, friendly staff. Advised specials and $5.00 bubbles. Bubbles almost flat. Fish meal was excellent with a NZ bottle of Riesling. Enjoyable evening.

A long narrow restaurant with an even narrower upstairs. Loud music, but great food. We had the Pork Belly, Tempura fish, and Mushroom risotto, together with a reasonably priced bottle of wine. The food was well presented, delicious, and also reasonably priced. We all enjoyed the experience.

I booked a table for the two of us for our 10 th wedding anniversary and told the girl this and asked if we could have a corner table. There were no other bookings at that time so I was optimistic of a nice quiet table. When we arrived we were given a table right in the middle of the... More

I've been to Juniper often and it is always reliable for quick service and some of the yummiest fries in Wellington. I've been there for after work drinks, for dinner and for dessert. Most recently we had the Wellington on a Plate burger, a tender and delicious chicken concoction, accompanied by the afore mentioned fries - total winner! Not a... More

The food was average, wine tasted like wet cardboard, they forgot our dessert. Seriously the worst worst dining experience I've had. Well done. You really suck.

I went there last night with a couple of friends to try the WOAP burger- it was great! The chips were hot and nicely salted, and the buffalo chicken sauce was spot on. You could tell it was a busy night at Juniper but the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and we stayed at the table for about 90... More
