Arrived and enjoyed a fantastic cocktail on the deck. Once at our table the selection of food was a real treat. Great vibe inside with really cool staff. Great spot to enjoy with friends.

Four of us recently enjoyed a wonderful meal here - we ordered 4 or 5 dishes for sharing and all were exceptionally good. In spite of being extremely busy, the service was spot on and both friendly and professional. We can't wait to return!

Great place to go with friends for a relaxed dinner where you can expect very good Asian Fusion food (designed to share) at reasonable prices. Two of our group had eaten here before and said they were impressed on both occasions. I will definitely return.

Rainy Friday lunchtime: just us and eventually one other table. Turns out that most office people hit Ponsonby Central for their Friday lunches. Great! We received friendly, professional service from Michael and each of the three dishes we had were amazing. They call them tasting plates, but they're a decent size so three were plenty for two people. The Jasmine-smoked... More

I really enjoyed my experience at MooChowCho. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Table was a little small and crammed in the corner. Food was flavoursome :) for main I would highly recommend the red beef curry, pork hock and/or soft shell crab. This is a place that does share dished. Will be back at some point

Was thoroughly impressed with everything. The white coke was a bit odd at the first sip but it definitely grew on me. And the food was incredible, especially the pork hock. Couldn't get enough! And the portions were pretty big too - very good experience.

Girls' night out with 3 friends. Food was plentiful on sharing tapas-style plates. Recommend the crispy salmon, red curry griiled beef and the squid. Shared the lychee sorbet & the raspberry panna cotta desert. Relaxed atmosphere, service was unobtrusive but leisurely-paced. Definite one to try again.

A friend and I went to Moochowchow for dinner and drinks on a Friday. It is in such a cute, creative little space. Our cocktails were wonderful- they use homemade mixers and are well-priced. We shared three plates (Moochowchow tradition-good!) which were unusual and exciting. Our waiter was amazing- so attentive and friendly, I was so impressed. It made the... More

We went here for dinner to catch up with some friends, and at just before 6pm, we were the first to arrive. Our table was ready and we were looked after very well. I even asked for a cocktail, which wasnt on their menu, and this wasnt a problem at all for the bar staff! The food was absolutely delicious... More
