Starters were good, but the staff need to explain that if you order a meal ( I ordered the crispy chicken) that the only thing coming is a plate with chicken on it, and some soy sauce. This took be by surprise, for the price I was expecting a meal, not part of a meal. The pumpkin curry needed more sauce (it was too dry) Was expecting a great meal going off the reviews, but left disappointed. The staff were very friendly 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
