Am a frequent patron. I suggest to seat at bench as an option. Some people can’t sit without some difficulty.

There needs to be cheaper bottles of. champagne and wine. A bottle of champagne shouldn't cost 25% of the final bill. The food and service was excellent but the champagne cost was through the roof..... and then to have said expensive bottle left on the table unchilled was not good.

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
