“Best in the Village”
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.

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 Eden

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.
