I have been to XO many times before with family and friends and always loved the banquet . However last night's banquet was less than impressive. The new additions to the menu were not so great.

Food was so good still talking about it...and service was top notch. Will highly recommend.

Great menu and all the dishes we tried were really nice. Let down a little in the execution. The crab meat in the nasi goreng was cold. The first dish arrived whilst we were still on a cocktail. Four waiters chatting whilst I had to get their attention to order. Small things that take away from what would be first rate dining experience. Will give them another try though.

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
