A beautifully crafted taste of Asia's most vibrant street food, XO is elevating this particular dining style with sparkling artisan cocktails to match.

Nestled in the heart of Takapuna, this divine eatery has charm in bucketfuls. XO's bistro makes diners feel right at home whilst also bringing some serious style to proceedings. Take your pick of the Yakitori Bar, a quaint table for two amongst the lush ferns or head to the patio for views of Takapuna's urban edge.

Just when you thought the culinary riches of Asia couldn't fit into one singular menu, XO subverts your expectations with a winning selection that has a bit of everything. Start on a sophisticated note with some NZ market oysters dressed with lemon, vinegar, and shallots melt-in-the-mouth tuna tataki or delights from the yakitori bar: Japan's grilled skewers are famous world-over and with good reason! Marinated and cooked to perfection, XO's beef sirloin, scallop, prawn and chicken offerings will take your breath away.

For mains. Thailand moves into the spotlight with a sumptuous range of curries. From the creamy Panang to massuman and green curry, there's a comforting bowl for everyone. Even their adored Pad Thai and sweet & sour pork make an appearance! If you'd prefer something to share, order a selection of bao buns and dumplings. Enjoyed alongside a pomegranate Pink Blush or blueberry Mojito Tango cocktail, everyone finds this combination exquisite and exciting. Asian street food with plenty of razzle-dazzle, XO is bringing the party to your tastebuds.
