Review of XOONG

XOONG
Reserve a table
Ranked #1 of 51 Restaurants in Mount Eden
Certificate of Excellence
Description: Fun fusion a mix of Japanese & Chinese cuisine XOONG, the newest addition to Auckland’s thriving hospitality hub of Mt Eden Village offers diners contrasting flavours of Asia in a series of captivating dining rooms. Drawing from North East Asian influences, one is immersed into the bold and textural design of the 150 seat restaurant. Over two stories diners will find intimate spaces and secluded dining areas juxtaposed by minimalist Japanese and intricate Chinese designs. Opposite the cocktail bar a canopy of dramatic red lanterns leads you past the open kitchen and chef tables to the courtyard, offering guests a delightful journey of discovery. China and Japan make strange bedfellows as their tumultuous history would tell us and this dramatic past is the inspiration for the restaurant. Xoong beautifully marries this theme with the ever-popular aromas of a Vietnamese kitchen simultaneously tying the styles together and creating a menu of big flavours that is unmistakably unique.

Had a lovely meal, portion sizes were larger than we expected! Asian greens were amazing… wish I knew what was in the sauce.

Tasked with booking a restaurant for an extended family get together, after a few misses due to fussy eaters not liking menu choices available, I landed on Xoong. I’d never been before but had passed by a few times and heard good things. Everyone said it was amazing and I was toasted at the end of the evening for finding such a gem.

Lovely and attentive staff. Food was excellent for a bistro style establishment. The chef must be in love with smoked paprika.
Personally I felt the wines were over priced, but I’m not a 10%er.

This was my 3rd time at Xoong and it hasn't yet disappointed. The food is generous, well spiced and delicious, but above all, the service was fantastic. My partner has mobility and speech difficulties and staff took the time to make sure he was comfortable and understood. Highly recommend!!
