Like a stroll through the fragrant night markets and food stalls of Bangkok, MooChowChow is a boost to the senses. Chef Che Barrington captures the vibrant ZANG of sweet+sour+salty and hot that makes Thai food a party-in-your-mouth.

Cocktails of fresh fruits, shaved ice and smashed herbs will cool, refresh and tantalise.


Closed Xmas Eve

Closed: Sun 24 December – Mon 8 January

Open: Tues 9 January

Dinner only for the month of January.


Che Barrington

grinds his pastes from scratch, and the Thai ladies of Auckland’s Avondale markets tend to his mint, coriander, lime leaves, ginger and galangal. He refuses to reveal his secret source of fresh betel leaves – infamously hard to grow in NZ’s climate.


Game enough to brave the steepest stairs in Auckland?  Then a discreet oasis of luxury awaits you. Our elegant private dining room comfortably accommodates groups from eight to twenty-five people. And we’ll happily tailor our menu to the dining requirements of your group.

We also offer to take care of the ordering for you with our spend-per-head service, starting at $50.00 per person plus beverages.  This is a great way for your group to effortlessly enjoy a diverse range of our most popular dishes.   We’ll check how you’d like to order when you arrive.

All our dishes are designed to share and arrive in a rolling manner just as soon as they’re ready.
