I really appreciated the many options for vegan and vegetarian food! Refreshing and inclusive (but mostly delicious)

The concept is fantastic. A few suggestions to improve upon it: - it would be great if the staff have some knowledge of the games, especially more complex ones, as that may help people get the hang of things - perhaps some more food options if you're not looking to eat a meal

Great place. Good food and excellent beer. HUGE selection of games. Playing games can get quite noisy and it can get hard to hear when big groups get noisy. Perhaps some sound baffling on the ceiling and maybe the walls might help as it seems like it's a bit of an echoey space.

Wonderful place, lovely hosts, awesome game selection, delish food and bevvies, I couldn't recommend it more highly for a great way to catch up with mates and unwind. Every game we thought of they had, didn't feel stressed to finish it in a certain amount of time.

It seemed a bit dim. It would be nice if there was a larger selection of part type games similar to Cards Against humanity and In a Pickle.

Counter Culture is a great place to chill and have fun. The staff is super knowledgeable and friendly and have helped me find the right board game many times. Counter Culture seems to have something for all ages and all tastes (cafe/beer/restaurant). I would strongly recommend checking this place out.

The curly fries were a bit cold and seemed like they were not freshly made before eating, possibly sitting under a warmer but apart from that everybody loved their choices and have plan on coming back. Just hope chips and curly fries are hot and steaming. cheers

Good fun and cool place except $16 for an average burger without chips (My fault - I didn't check) seems a bit too much. Would definitely go again but probably eat elsewhere

My wife and I went here 4 times this week while on holiday in Wellington. Great selection of games, good food, knowledgeable friendly staff, amazing ice cream and great prices for playing games and buying them! We loved coming here and can't wait to visit again!
