Moochowchow has a lovely atmosphere, yummy food and excellent staff! We turned up a little casual because our planned dinner place was full but we were still very welcomed. I loved the softshell crab! This place is great for sharing plates and trying a bit of everything, buy more rather than less because plates are smallish if you can eat... More

Had a great 40th birthday here in the upstairs room. Good was fantastic, we had 6 courses throughout the night, the soft shell crab was one of my favourite staters. The best main was the red curried beef, it was amazing and was all finished off by a plethora of desserts, the best was the chocolate mousse. Would definitely go... More

I held my husband's 30th surprise dinner at Moochowchow on Friday 12 August 2016 with 15 close friends. We dined upstairs in the private room and had a wonderful time. The service was exceptional from organising the booking right through to the service on the actual night. We had a couple of guests who had particular food requirements and they... More

the food is good and inviting decor. only negative would be the noise level, its consistently hard to hear conversation due to music, closeness of tables and crowd noise. overall we do like the good here

Had a number of dishes and everyone of them was fantastic, especially the Scallops, Pork hock, and Lemongrass custard. Will definitely be back for more!

Greatly disappointed and definitely one of those not worth the hype restaurants in my opinion. The first issue was when we were seated. We were seated right beside another group of people dining but not at a different table - we were seated at the same table as a group of people we didn't know. This wasn't mentioned when I... More

I met there this week with a fab bunch of four foodies. We actually ended up having all vegetarian which was amazing. We voted our Masamam (?) curry the best and we had a number of the salads & the Asian greens. All delicious and there was a kick to many of them so if you don't like spicy maybe... More
