Beautiful food with great atmosphere

Wow! Totally loved this place! The food was fantastic, the wait staff were great, and the atmosphere was brilliant. Kind of this hip South American music playing which confused the Asian theme slightly, but I found it really worked. Not cheap, but well worth it for a nice night out!

We are here on our first and last night in Auckland. Over our visits we enjoyed the massaman goat curry and also the red beef curry. Both were exceptional. With the beef curry it would have been nice for the meat to be removed from the bone and cut up, it didn't do a whole lot for presentation. Also as... More

Moo Chow Chow has never stunned me and this visit was no different. The food is ok but doesn't stand out enough for the price they charge. The waitress was nice but told us that ordering two curries between two people was far too much food. After ignoring her advice she picked up empty plates and was unapologetic about her... More

Once we had battled our way through the awful Auckland traffic, our party of seven received a warm and friendly welcome from the serving staff. We also received just the right amount of help in deciding how much to order from the sharing menu. The food was outstanding - every dish flavoursome, fragrant and delicious! Would certainly visit again -... More

After reading all the reviews we were expecting something stunning Maybe it was an off night but it was very average!!! The Caramelised pork & prawn, pineapple, coriander & peanuts starter was underwhelming The Red curry, char-grilled beef, chilli, Thai basil, ginger, lemongrass sounded great but was very fatty tasting . However the Massaman curry was good, but nothing to... More

We visited after NZ winning the cricket. The food was just amazing, an explosion of flavours in our mouths. The friendly staff fitted us in as was busy and we didn't have a booking. Would love to come back :)

I love Moochowchow and always bring overseas visitors to try it. The wait staff are always helpful for suggestions and their advice has never led me astray. The caramelised pork hock is one of the best things I've ever eaten

Not a lot else to add - looked nice through the windows but their lack of letting us know they would closed, despite having a confirmed booking, suggest management is not what it might be....suggest you call and confirm your booking before you go.....

The concept, which is quite common in NZ, is to get a few dishes to share between the party. One thing I didn't like was how the different dishes come when ready; I would've have rather have the starters come together and then the mains dishes come together, as it's difficult to know how much you've ordered. The food was... More
