We came here with a friend upon his suggestion.. Beautiful food and great service. Funky atmosphere and it all wasn't too expensive compared to the quality of fare. Would especially recommend the Red Curry with Beef Cheek.. but honestly everything was superb. Reserve ahead.

We know every time we come here its 100% consistent, tonight we had the Pork Hock, Spicy Papaya and rice and that was after the Betel leaf smoked salmon, all are a match made in heaven. The service here is provided by attentive staff and their ability to match your nights expectations with food and wine are un-matched in Auckland.... More

Some friends gave us a voucher as a thank you for moo chow chow. We had the the scollops, the pork and squid, caramelised pork hooks and the smoked salmon. For afters the missus had the chocolate and banana (not sure of the name) along with a couple of Emerson's and a couple of Apple juices. This certainly isn't one... More

A modern take on Thai food that did not disappoint. Great food for sharing and great value for money. The soft shell crab in particular was a hit!

This place has a great vibe and am so happy I finally got to try it. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food and wine are great. My three favourites were crispy roll of pulled pork, the massaman goat curry, and the caramelised pork hock, but everything was good. The soft shell crab and the fish were other... More

Booked in at Moo Chow Chow on a recommendation from another restaurant that I couldn't get into. There was a group of ten of us and so we decided to go for the Chefs recommendation for a shared plate meal at $50.00 a head. We had a great meal. The food was lovely. Modern Thai they call it. Very flavourful... More

What it say- delicious Thai fusion menu... Staff are friendly and helpful. Extensive drinks and cocktail choices, which seems sort of hit and miss. But the food is stella; really delicious, interesting and modern Thai. Not your average, boring Thai restaurant. A little pricey, but for a special dinner it's well worth it.
