“Poor customer service and bad attitude”
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.

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.

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.
