Great Tastes of Vietnam

XIN CHÀO!

Rock Yard is a Vietnamese Restaurant based on 18 Allen street, Te Aro, Wellington since 2016. The name “Rock Yard” is inspired from Brian Tran (Owner & Head Chef) stepfather’s name as it is his family tradition to name the business by the person’s name who you honor and admire.

 

The menu concept presents modern takes on classic Vietnamese dishes from south to north and capture the honest flavours that are found in the streets & alleyways of Vietnam. Part of our history is tied to French and Chinese culture so you can taste each country’s influence in many of our dishes.

Don’t forget to pair your dish with our fantastic wine list, local craft beers and cocktails.

Một, Hai, Ba, Dôôô!… One, two, three, cheers!
