Our one regret is that we found this restaurant so late in our holiday, dining here for our last evening.

From start to finish every aspect was perfect.

We chose the Thursday menu to share and then added an extra dessert only because it sounded so intriguing. Looking at the menu we would have been happy to order anything, but what we did order was delivered to perfection.

Highly recommend you make a reservation.

Great value for money too.

Every time we visit the Sunshine Coast we lunch at Embassy XO - in fact we manufacture reasons to visit the Sunshine Coast just to go to Embassy XO. The little dumplings were as refined and innovative as ever but seem to have got smaller. I would rather pay a few dollars more for the banquet than the restaurant having skimp on size to make ends meet. After all they have not increased the price in years!

The view was the same, oh beautiful same, and the decor was unchanged and the service professional and attentive but a touch of genuine interaction with diners would not go astray. With one waitperson the conversation seemed forced and disinterested - if you do not enjoy serving customers time to try a new line of work.

Really good location. Staff were attentive and welcoming without being fussy. Excellent service!
The yum cha banquet lunch menu was a real treat. Perfect sized portions and a real dining experience. Fantastic menu to work through. We really enjoyed it.
Very pleased with the price for what you get. We left feeling like we’d had a great lunch, feeling full rather than stuffed and would happily return.

Surprising find on Sunrise Beach. We had the set meal and shared between two of us. One of the finest Chinese / Asian restaurants we have eaten at.

Every year we head to Noosa and every year we have one dinner with friends at XO.

This year the food was still nice but they changed the set up. No moody lights anymore, ceiling lights on full like in a supermarket and the staff was ok but not as lovely as it used to be.

We had a good night don’t get me wrong but we left the first time with the thoughts ‘would we rush back?’

Mmmh we have a year to think about it

Hi Karin. So glad you visited us again and enjoyed the food. I'm sorry but we had a problem with the dimming system on our lights upon switching to LED. As a responsible business we want to save energy and had to wait on parts to adjust the dimmers once the fittings were changed. The lights are now better than ever as of yesterday.
Our core staff have been with us long term and we hope to see you again next year. Thanks for your continued support. Regards XO
