We like to go to Stellar on a Sunday night, great food. Very well presented and the nicest tasting food cooked to perfection. All staff are very nice. When we arrive on Sunday Makayla has our drinks already for us, that is so cool. Just love it. We would recommend Stellar as a place to go for fine food great... More

We originally went looking for a feed of Indian, but instead settled for this place, chilled atmosphere, friendly girls running front of house, small menu but well thought out that would cover most tastes. I had one of the specials Surf and Turf, the steak and seafood was cooked perfectly, but the balsamic glaze as a sauce complimented the steak... More

It was the 1st of January 2017... the extended family were visiting from Auckland and decided to pop in for dinner. The staff were friendly and really great at finding a table for the 6 of us despite the fact that the restaurant was fully booked - and they even gave us a heads up that that food would be... More

Dinner at the Stellar - absolutely impressive. Greeted when we walked in by lovely young smiling waitress who looked after us during the night. Had pizza which was mouth watering and over ate because it was so delicious. Hamburgers with real chicken breast and lots of salad no short cuts and kids loved them. Well looked after for drinks and... More

Wednesday night was $10 burger night, add fries & sauce for $3. Couldn't go wrong here. We chose the Beef & Hawaiian chicken. They were both huge meals, delicious & fresh! The service was friendly & professional, atmosphere was relaxed & busy. We would definitely visit here again next time we are in Wanganui!

We stopped in for a few beers and pizza after the Cementary Circuit event Monday 28 December 2016. First time I had a Boundary Road beer. Pizza was great service excellent. Belief it or not but what I remember most was the size of their napkins- excellent.

$17 for a burger and fries - bacon on the burger was shrivelled and the lettuce was wilted and limp - I took it out. Chicken had no real flavour. Fries were oily. Saved from a 1 star review by friendly server and the pleasant décor.

Since my last visit to this bar a year ago, it has deteriorated considerably. The menu is all fried food and don't bother going if you don't eat meat as you will not find one option on their menu. Avoid it and bust the Thai across the road which is lovely.

Wanaganui restaurants were really busy the night we dined and the Rutland Arms couldn't fit us in. Stellar seated the 2 of us at a table for 6 and gave the people behind us a cosy table for 2. The service was punctual. We ordered a steak and the Chicken parm. The steak was chewy and the chicken parm was... More

A quiet Tuesday night in Whanganui celebrating a family member's 50th birthday should have been a lot more enjoyable. Stellar was not bust at all so we expected to be looked after well but we're largely left to our own devices. Young staff. Not well trained by the look of it. Food was nice. Service was as quiet as the... More
