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.

Arrived about 6:30pm for dinner. Still a few tables not occupied. Environment very Asian decorated. Impressive. Service attentive. Food:- The only drawback for us was the Vegetarian Noodle was too salty for us. Probably too much soy. The beef cheek curry didn't have that kick. The beef cheek was melt in the mouth though.

AMAZING food was delicious, service very attentive despite it being busy
You have got to try the duck fried rice and the curries! My partner’s mocktail was also very nice and they have a good wine menu.
We will 101% be back

A wonderful experience. The staff were really attentive and gave excellent food advice and the food itself was exceptional. The shared plates were perfect sizing for the three of us and the food itself was totally amazing. My new favourite restaurant.
