Ancestral boasts a superbly refined selection of East-Asian cuisine.
As one of Wellington City’s more recent additions to the culinary scene, the restaurant and bar provides diners with an elegant, yet suitably comfortable, space for sharing conversation over a table of excellent food and exclusive drinks for discerning patrons.
While the restaurant menu itself focuses on both the Sichuan & Guangzhou (Canton) areas of China, the bar presents the finest range of Whisky in the city. Not to mention the impressive cocktails, wine & beer options to match. The beautiful range of cocktails cleverly fuses flavours & ingredients from East Asia with the drinking inflections of the West.
A sheltered garden space in the rear of the restaurant boasts a Japanese yakitori grill amid carefully designed greenery, which perfects this truly enchanting scene. There are those who desire more seclusion and selective attention – the Haipai Dining Room is available for reservation.
The multi-sensory experience of Ancestral has been complimented with a talented team of hand-selected staff, who aspire to perpetuate the aesthetic and culinary detail of this fine establishment.

Would definitely go back but probably only for a special occasion as despite it being great in dont think it was so great as to warrant the prices.
