Aunty Mena's has been in Wellington for as long as I can remember, dedicated to delicious vegetarian, pan-Asian food. To be honest, the decor/fit-out is rather unappealing and the lighting is as bad as it gets, but the food is delicious, and the staff are super lovely.
I LOVE dumpling noodle soup, but since going vegetarian 5 years ago I've never been able to find a vegetarian version at restaurants, except for Aunty Mena's. The food here is so good and so cheap, and the staff are all lovely. It's definitely not a fancy looking place but always such a warming experience coming here, you can really feel the love!
My friend is a vegetarian and sometimes it is hard to find a nice place to meet for lunch. Then we found this place. The food is fantastic, staff are friendly and the premise is also clean tidy and inviting. Highly recommended to everyone (even if your, not a vegetarian )
A hidden gem for vegetarian and vegans. Very well priced - most items are in the $10-$13 price bracket. The setup is very basic and no-frills but clean and allows the food to shine. A must-do if you don't eat meat and enjoy Asian cuisine.
Went here for lunch with a couple of the cousins and really did not expect much from a shop where the inside resembled a local food outlet in Asia and that just served vegetarian food but I was pleasantly surprised.
We ordered the satay, the bbq steamed bun and the fried drumsticks for starters and the laksa, char keow teow and Nasi Lemak for mains.
All the food was exceptional and it did not feel at all that there was no meat. Everything was cooked really well with all the flavours these dishes would normally have. I was really impressed with the bbq steamed bun and the char keow teow.
We were there for lunch and this place was packed. Staff were still very curtious and polite even with all our ignorant questions on how these dishes would taste without meat.
It is really awesome that Wellington has a fully vegetarian restaurant which is not only busy bit serves really nice food
