Very welcoming staff on arrival with choice of seats as we were early. Loved the stylish red and black decor with beautiful lanterns. Ordered tea on arrival with the teapot and small cups following the red and black theme. We didn't drink wine but enjoyed eating our delicious seafood meals presented in stylish plates. Great not to see disposable chopsticks used which is great for the environment. An enjoyable evening out with attentive staff, so would definitely go again.

Great "Old Shanghai" feel about the place with red and black decor styles, but not gaudy. Candles and great lighting make for a wonderful ambience. The entire place can be opened up for the summer months by glass louvres and sliding doors. Very well trained staff - attentive and courteous but not intrusive. The menu is not large but the selection is an innovative twist on Chinese cuisine. Braised beef cheeks in a homemade black bean sauce; the cheeks are marinated for 4 days and slow cooked for 6 hours. Superb melt in the mouth. We had a wonderful night and would recommend highly.

Embassy XO has to be the best restaurant on the Sunshine Coast.

It was an absolute pleasure to dine at Embassy XO last night. The staff were professional and friendly. The wine list extensive and not too expensive - perhaps related to the XO cellar below.

The atmosphere and decor stylish but the meal was exceptional. We had the local set 3 course menu for $39. WOW. Yabbie dumplings - great texture and flavour. Beef cheeks to die for followed by a chocolate steamed bun with a raspberry and chilli coulis YUM YUM YUM. Wish I had discovered this restaurant the first night at Noosa. Wouldn't have bothered going anywhere else.

I cannot praise this restaurant enough.....you could choose anything on the menu and be guaranteed for it to be a delicious taste sensation. My husband is still raving about his smoked quail and pork spring rolls, and I just wish we lived closer...so I could eat the beef cheeks at least once a week. The service is always excellent too.

We've been a few times here, took the in-laws with us today and we all agreed it was a fantastic experience. Every dish was tasty with generous servings and a reasonable price. Though we usually stick with the tea which is lovely, Mother-in-Law sampled a cocktail which was also delicious.

As always we left very full, very satisfied and amazed at the value. Casual, friendly and comfortable, you don't feel hurried and nothing is too much trouble. Lovely weekend lunch.
