We love XO, it’s our go to dining option for the beat meals in Canberra. Food, service and playlist are always spot on.

This restaurant serves great South East Asian favourites with an imaginative twist. Great wine and bar menu, well-presented and thoughtful food, great service. An absolute winner.

We went for the Chinese New Year dinner @ $88 per head. It was eight courses. One was disgusting, one was average, two were excellent the rest were good. So it was a mixed night really.

Full on flavour. Works very well with Asian spices and sauces; not so good with other flavouring. Specifically, the salmon dish doesn't work because dill is nor a herb to be used in large quantities. Less is more because overdone it becomes 'weedy' and unpleasant. Bottom line: stick with the Asian umami dishes and give the European imports a miss.

The restaurant is quite small and really busy and therefore its quite noisy. On top of that they play music really loud which makes it difficult to have a conversation especially when with a group.

Food was lovely. It’s a shame, the 6-8pm setting felt a bit rushed. Waiter made it clear we had to vacate the table by 8pm. We felt we shouldn’t be made to rush when spending over $500 for dinner/ drinks.

About XO

Love you like XO Quirky, modern and oh-so-cool, XO Restaurant is breathing new life into the sleepy suburb of Narrabundah. This cracking new eatery has been created by four Canberra boys with a passion for food and drink, and they have created something really special. The menu features upmarket Asian street food with a playful twist… start with some fresh and tangy cured kingfish, and follow this up with the Malaysian style Prawn Kapitan. And you can’t leave without trying their signature ‘Asian Bolognaise’ which features stir fried udon in XO chicken ragout with a 60/60 egg - it's super delicious! The decor is stunning and the food is beautifully presented - you’ll be gramming all night! Best dish: crispy lamb ribs
