Fabulous food especially the pork hock and the beef cheek! Staff were very welcoming and polite as well as attentive at the right times. Haven't been for awhile and feel that the food has only got better in the interim.

I've often salivated over MooChowChow's menu but avoided dining there because of a severe peanut allergy. We decided to try it tonight and shared the crab salad, salmon, beef cheek and goat curry in that order and each was exquisite in it's own way. We will be back.

Oh this is some seriously good food, you have no idea. Go here, order the Oyster, a Goat Massaman Curry and Soft Shell Crab salad and prepare to eat yourself in to a coma.

Dined here in October. Some of the tables have chairs with no backs which may not be suitable for everyone, so maybe request a table on the wall where the chairs have backs. The food is very special maybe a little warm for some. The oysters and chargrilled scallops were amazing. The red beef cheek curry and yellow tiger prawn... More
