Dined here at the last minute on Valentines Day. Their website offered a reservation that didn't exist but they very nicely accommodated us at an earlier time. The only table available was on the Terrace, which is adjacent to a very busy street. Inside would have been better. The service was very friendly and very helpful. The two of the... More

Visited here with a gorgeous date for lunch. Food was good and good sized servings. Service was pretty average. Bit pricey at $124 for two. Two mains and 4 drinks.

Wow, this is one of my most memorable meals in Auckland. Great eclitic flavors, fresh tasty ingredients. You must do the pork hock. We also enjoyed the salmon salad and spiciness from the green papaya salad. TIP: make a reseevation. We were luck to walk and to sit in the front area for dinner on a bustling Friday night but...

We ordered wild goat and soft shell crab. Crab dish seems to be interesting and wild goat dish tasted a bit average. Service is good. Had a bit stomach reaction after meal and last to the next morning.

It’s a trendy spot with lots of groups of friends enjoying the sharing plates. Not a large dining area, so reservations are mandatory. Good food, but read the menu carefully and ask questions if you’re unsure of any ingredients.

Fabulous food especially the pork hock and the beef cheek! Staff were very welcoming and polite as well as attentive at the right times. Haven't been for awhile and feel that the food has only got better in the interim.

I've often salivated over MooChowChow's menu but avoided dining there because of a severe peanut allergy. We decided to try it tonight and shared the crab salad, salmon, beef cheek and goat curry in that order and each was exquisite in it's own way. We will be back.

Oh this is some seriously good food, you have no idea. Go here, order the Oyster, a Goat Massaman Curry and Soft Shell Crab salad and prepare to eat yourself in to a coma. I would say its the best Thai i have eaten but this place takes a little twist on traditional Thai food with out being too "fusion"... More
