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.

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.


If you’re game enough to brave the steepest stairs in Auckland, a discreet oasis of luxury awaits you. Our elegant private dining room comfortably accommodates groups from eight to twenty-five people. We offer set banquet menus starting at $50 per person and we’ll happily personalise them to the dining requirements of your group.

Now you get MooChowChow all to yourself – it’s a Private Saturday lunch.

If you’re a group of 20 to 80 people, now you can book MooChowChow for lunch on any Saturday. You’ll have the whole restaurant, bar and wait staff taking care of you. And only you.

We’ll chat with you beforehand to create a bespoke set menu within your price range that will cater to your dining needs. We recommend a starting time of 12:30pm, with everyone out by 4:30pm. Easy.

Your very own restaurant for a day.

Saturday private lunches must be booked, so please phone the restaurant on 360 6262 or email: hello@moochowchow.co.nz
