Reviews for The Long Bar on Brandon

Tucked away in the ‘wrong end of town’ whenever the name is mentioned, the food is actually authentic enough to be passable as Malaysian cuisine of the times it does get served with banana leaves when it is expected. The service is attentive and staff have the genuine feel of wanting to work there. It may not be a place for everyone due to the nature of dishes, but those who are familiar with the food served will be pleasantly reminded, with plenty of variety to choose from.
Bookings are essential or disappointment will ensue.

My wife and I have been here often, both for lunch and evening meal too and we have never been disappointed with the service and food!
Of course it gets busy at lunchtimes, due to its CBD location and reputation, so booking is definitely the best option.
Despite it alway being busy (a great sign of success), you are assured of attentive service at all times and the food is delightful and always of the highest standard.
As a vegetarian, my wife has heaps to choose from as well, which is rare in Wellington and most welcome.
this is not the cheapest Asian place to eat in the city but it has rightly earned its place as a top eatery, no matter what the occasion or time.

Good value and quick service with plenty of choices to make. That’s the hardest part! The Roti are fantastic. This is my first choice for lunch with work colleagues as I have never been disappointed. They don’t mind splitting the bill. It pays to book as they are ALWAYS busy. and with good reason. Brilliant!

As visitors to Wellington, we found the Long Bar by chance – but what a stroke of luck!! The welcome was instantaneous and the menu and wine list extensive. Not only was the food beautifully cooked, it was copious, well presented and served quickly. The chef was obviously out of the ordinary,and the staff very pleasant.Indeed,we ate there several times, being thoroughly spoilt on each occasion.A treat not to be missed!!!!
