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.

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.

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.

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.
