“Fantastic”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

It's easy to get confused when going for a meal at Mix Moon.
Instead of New Lynn, it feels as if you could be at a restaurant in the city.
Lovely, modern place. Attentive, helpful and friendly staff and food which is pretty much second-to-none.
Six of us went at around 6.30 on a Friday evening and the place was full, so make sure you book.
We Had wine (a bottle and a couple of glasses) and a few beers too. We went for a couple of entrees between us, Crispy Moon and Curry Puffs, which were both delicious.
We then chose a main each and passed them around to share. It seemed a shame to stick to the meal of choice as everything was beautiful.
We ordered Beef rendang, green curry, nasi goreng, Goong Op woon sen, chicken laksa and chicken sambal. All the food is made to your preferred strength and everything is so fresh.
All this for less than $260 too.
Absolutely fantastic, Mix Moon is a must visit.

“Hidden Gem - great food!”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

This is the second time I have been to Mix Moon and both times have found very good service and great food. It has a good atmosphere, the lighting gives it a secluded but not claustrophobic feeling. Screens are used to give a semi private dining experience (much appreciated in a dinner for two). There is a good selection of entrees - recommend the "Crispy Moon" sambal shrimps. There would be a main to suit just about everyone. They always ask what degree of heat you would like which was greatly appreciated. The food is great value for money and the portions a good size too. Try their roti as a side - it is a little different from many others and tastes delicious. I haven't tried the desserts as both times I was too full but their coffee is a good finale.
As others have commented, Mix Moon is an unexpected gem in the suburbs although it is now becoming quite well known.

“Lovely restaurant, yummy food!”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

I went here with a friend and was instantly impressed by the restaurant, it was modern, stylish and very welcoming. I loved the heaters going outside and the fairy lights added that nice touch. We were seated and given menus, the waitress went away for a bit then came to take our drink orders. We ordered sprits, I had ordered a double which was disappointing as it was more like less than a single, couldn’t taste the alcohol and was even in a short glass, at $9.00 you’d think it’d be a double. We then ordered and the mains were beautiful, very impressed by the food. Although the medium was more mild than medium for my curry. The waitresses weren’t around much, although they were very polite and asked how our meals were and upon leaving as well. We didn’t want desert as were too full, which was lucky as they had given us the menus and then forgotten to come back for about 20 minutes. It was a quiet night and very nice place, overall yummy food and good experience, I will definitely be going back. Might just order a coke next time though!

“The best in New Lynn”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

I've lived my life in New Lynn and Titirangi, and good places to dine out have always been hard to find.

Mix moon by far rates as one of the best I've found in the area so far. You'd think you were in a classy restaurant in Ponsonby, not tucked away in suburban west Auckland.

The ambiance combined with really delicious Asian food make this my pick for a nice night out in the west.
