I probably wouldn't have tried The Trade Kitchen last night without the voucher (yes, the $59 three course meal for two people voucher from Groupon), but I'm glad I did. It is always hard for me to ignore pate on a menu so I had that for the entrée. It paired amazingly with the walnut bread and apple chutney...and a... More

We booked dinner online through their website and printed off the booking confirmation. When we arrived at the restaurant, we were told off that they were fully booked for the night and that the website booking system was faulty and even blamed it on us. Minutes later, the lad came back unapologetically and said he will try to "squeeze" us... More

We had a fabulous meal at Trade Kitchen. We bought the $59 3 course meal for 2 on Groupon and it lived up to advertised expectations. The pate I had for the entree was full of flavour, smooth and creamy and paired well with the chutney and walnut toast. All food was fresh, healthy, tasty and of decent proportion. The... More

I had a 3-course meal voucher ($59 for 2 people) as a good excuse to try this place with a friend. I was not disappointed with the food ... I had Chicken & Pistachio Terrine, Grilled Lamb Cutlet and the Orange & Lemon Tart (which was divine). The atmosphere is a little "sterile" - furniture not unlike a 1970s NZ... More

I visited for the work Christmas do - we were in a private room but enjoyed the ala carte menu. Service was attentive and polite with our being the last to leave. Meal was excellent - coped well with a mid size group and still turned things out to a high standard, including a array of steak orders cooked to... More

My work colleagues and I visited last week for an early Christmas celebration using a 3 course meal voucher ($59 for 2 people). I hadn't been here for a while and wasn't disappointed. I had the Drunken Nanny Goats cheese souffle with walnut & grape salad, the chicken for a main and the strawberry mess. Without the voucher I think... More

We always enjoy visiting Trade Kitchen. The food is always good and service friendly. We used a Groupon voucher hence the great price. Its also very close to Wellington Railway Station and Buses. Great to use to avoid issues with drinking and driving. Well worth a visit.

We used a grab one voucher to try out Trade Kitchen for the first time. The choices were good as was the food, apart from mine was not really warm when it got to me. I felt we got good value for what we paid but at full menu price it would not have met my expectations.

We had a degustation using a voucher, and while cheap we were disappointed. The food was ho hum, with some components not well matched. Service was friendly but overly casual.
