Excellent restaurant although possibly not the restaurant for those that like traditional food. Tasty food well presented with an excellent selection of cocktails, gins and Malt Whisky's. Very helpful staff.

An amazing mix of flavour, ambience, and staff who want to help you have a great evening, truly perfect. Would recommend for a smart casual evening out.

Came with a group of 10, seated in a room on the first floor that had a very steep staircase (no good if you're fat or impaired in anyway!!). The room was small making it very difficult to change seats during the evening to talk to someone else. Two sittings, one at 6.30pm and one at 8.30pm. We chose the... More

This is a really consistent fun, vibrant restaurant with excellent food. They do a great spin on some classic Thai dishes (such as Som Tam and a soft shell Bu salad) but also some inventive dishes with a NZ spin. Loved it, great place for either couples or a night out with friends.

We were 4 people and enjoyed dinner there. All dishes were so delicious, the green papaya salad bursting with flavour. Chicken and beef dish was so well spiced, we loved it. Service was spot on and friendly. We'll be back

After all the good reviews Moochochow did not live up to the hype. For a Thai inspired restaurant the food lacked that wonderful balance of salt sour and hot. In fact the only heat you could get was from a bottle of chilli sauce on the side. This applied to both our mains of Massaman Goat Curry and Soy-braised chicken.... More

You can't go past the soft shell crab. Could have eaten this all night. Pork hock, smoked salmon, goat curry were also stand outs. The service was attentive but inobtrusive. Loved every minute of it and will be back soon.

A group of us went here on a Friday night for a birthday celebration and we were put upstairs because there were 13 of us. The upstairs area was divided into two by a curtain as there was another group up there. There is no circulation upstairs and even with the window wide open it was very hot! It was... More

My daughter & her husband Richard live across the road and last night we had five for dinner. Where to start? The best part was the caramelised pork, fantastic! Then I should list; the Masaman Goat Curry, the Beef Ribs, the papaya salad, the Asian greens and the booze. Two bottles of Rockburn Chardonnay from Otago and a great Zinfindel... More

Friendly greetings from the moment I entered the door. The waiter was so attentive but in an unaffected way so it felt like I was dining at a friends place rather than a restaurant which was nice because I was dining alone. I had the smoked tofu salad which was light but full of flavor (the waiter warned me that... More
