Xoong Restaurant & Bar – Mt Eden (Auckland)
- Great cocktails
- Share plates
- Lively and intriguing
XOONG, one of the newer additions to Auckland’s thriving restaurant hub of Mt Eden Village, not far from Dominion Road, Xoong offers diners some of the best Asian fusion food in Auckland 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. Expect gochujang lamb racks from the wood fired oven, stunning sashimi dishes, and plenty of fresh aromatics from the wok.
