 Good asian cuisine is not always easy to find. Which is why team posse is here to guide you in your hunt for a delicious asian fix. Treat yourself and your friends, family or/and partner to some fine asian dining at a few of Wellington’s most exquisite restaurants.


With two locations in Wellington; Tory Street and Woodward Street, theres no doubt about Chow being one of the most popular Asian restaurants in Wellington. They offer a fusion of fresh South East Asian cuisine for you to chow down alongside a refreshing peach ice tea. This is probably the only place in Wellington that serves blue cheese wontons! You’ve definitely got to try these gems out for yourself. To make things even better, they have two for one food all day every Monday, and two for one cocktails every Wednesday and Saturday.

They have an innovative food selection, boutique beers, creative cocktails and an international wine and beverage selection.
