Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Went here with my mum. Delicious food. The small plates were very generous, and we aren’t small eaters! The dumplings were incredible. Perfect cocktails too. Great vibe and decor. And the owner was there and super welcoming! Highly recommend

It was very bad customer service provided by one of a female staff and her attitude. Was very disappointed.

This must be one of the most beautiful restaurants in Auckland. The lanterns, black laquer walls with china and warm lighting creates a great atmosphere. It was busy and had a great buzz. The food was fresh and delicious and waiting staff excellent. We had...a delay between main and desert but were happy to have a break and enjoy talking and the surroundings. The coal smoked salmon and eggplant chips were amazing… and the squid, everthing was! Highly recommended.More

Our first time here but definitely won't be our last. We loved this place. The food and service were outstanding. Our group of 4 shared the popping prawns and the crispy squid which were generous and deliciously crisp.One couple shared the vegan green curry with...rice and the other couple shared the braised wagyu beef cheek curry with a side of the blistered green beans. All dishes were plentiful and tasty. Highly recommend.More

The food here was so fresh and full of flavour. Was very hard to pick what we wanted from the menu as it all looked and sounded so tasty. Chilli marg was really nice and generous on the tequila content !! Will be going back...for sure.More

We were sitting upstairs and there is a problem with the AC. We tried to talk about it to the owner when paying but clearly he didn’t want to know. The unit was noisy and then spurted out ice ! So it was shut down...resulting in all of the customers around to be uncomfortably hot. We did ask the nice waitress if she could open the windows which she did after checking with the owner. I am afraid this distracted me from the food but the pecking duck and pork belly were the highlight while the pad Thai pork/prawn was disappointing. We are locals and were not the only customers affected by the AC last night and talking about it to the staff so maybe it’s time something was done to address it.More

Mt Eden village, is our local. We eat there all the time, luckily, there is not a dud eatery in the whole village, BUT, Xoong, is the best. Would have been there probably ten times in the last few years. I love tasty food, and...Xoong oozes of it. Fabulous and creative chefs, great wait staff, it is a must in Mt EdenMore

Fantastic buzzing restaurant with epic food, can’t pick a favourite as every dish was 10/10. Great drinks selection and super friends team looking after us. Lamb ribs, beef bao, beef cheek curry and the peking duck pancakes to name a few are definitely not too...be missed.More
