There was a great ambience and an interesting decor as soon as I entered the restaurant.
The wait staff were friendly and efficient and they created a perfect flow of service.
The food was delicious and there was a great variation of drinks.
Loved it !!

Always stunning. The food and service at this restaurant has never failed us - it just keeps getting better. It is our 'go to' restaurant when we are up the coast. Thanks Embassy XO for being consistently superb. Well done.

Exceptional service. Delicious and well presented food. Accommodates for dietary constraints without hesitation. Wine pairings were fantastic. By far the best dining experience we have had in the Sunshine Coast. Coming back with family and friends!

This truly is the best Asian influenced food I’ve had in the Sunshine Coast including the hinterland regions.

I’ve always wondered about the saying, ‘It’s to die for’, believing no foods worth dying for. So imagine my surprise after eating the stuffed zucchini flower when I said, omg it’s to die for 🌻✨ I did take it back quickly, but I did say it.

The service is equally wonderful ✨✨

Disappointed again by the main meals. The entrees were fabulous but the last two times we’ve eaten there, the mains have disappointed. Had the whole fish and sizzling beef. Both lacked flavour and punch. Probably won’t be back unfortunately.

Embassy Xo is one of my favourite restaurant on the Sunshine Coast.

I went for the tasting menu. It comprises 5 dishes, 4 of them (zucchini flowers, wagyu wontons, lamb cutlets in a Panang curry and coconut sego with kafir lime sorbet) were just outstanding, perfectly balanced and great combinations of flavours. The fifth (miso glazed salmon with crispy skin and garden salad) was a bit confusing for me. All components were good, but the combination did not work for me. Also the portion of salmon was a bit too big and while perfectly cooked, the central part did not get the additional flavour from the miso glaze

The lamb cutlet in a Panang curry and the coconut sego with kafir lime sorbet were the two stars of the night. Both were fantastic explosions of flavours.

You cannot be wrong at Embassy XO for an Asian inspired dinner.

Really enjoyed our "DadCha" set menu on Fathers Day. The food was delicious and perfectly portioned. The staff were attentive and polite. The restaurant itself is cool and has great acoustics. We could all have a conversation without needing to raise our voices to be heard. On the whole it was a great experience and all of us said we would definitely go back.
The Noosa area is full of overpriced & overrated food, Embassy XO is one of the very few that delivers!

Seemed that the menu while lengthy left out a couple of my favourites octopus/calamari and quail as well as bugs
Overwight in vegetables I thought but we enjoyed the mushroom omelette very much as well as the excellent wok tossed greens
I would have liked to try the pepperpot eggplant but you cant have everything. Serves very generous

Excellent new Yum Cha menu - I've been to Embassy XO numerous times over the years and this was the best Yum Cha menu to date! I could have done without the Noosa Reds San Chow Bao (needs much more herbs and some oomph! - perhaps a sauce?) but the Tempeh Bun and everything else was sublime! Congratulations to the Chef - awesome menu! We'll be back. x

We are locals but had been a few years since we'd visited..........place was packed on a Friday evening and can honestly say the food was absolutely fantastic, as it has always been. We went for the tasting menu as it offered a chance to sample a variety of dishes at are a very reasonable price. 5 courses with the overall amount just right to satisfy a hungry diner !! Market fish was a standout. Read one review that the wine list was limited. That person must have Embassy XO confused with somewhere else!! Heaps of variety and all top class drops (with many uncommon 5 star choices for those that know their wine). We'll definitely be back again soon.

My wife Linda and I had a beautiful foody experience

Drinks on the deck early evening followed by fabulous food.

The stuffed zucchini flowers started proceedings. Not your usual fried but fresh and brilliant , the Pork sounded dull on the menu but had a flavour and texture beyond expectations, the Prawns were exceptional. We had veg fried rice and the colourful cauliflowers which all in all filled and fulfilled us to our immense delight

Our table of 4 enjoyed the banquet menu with our own choices of wine. My husband is Gluten free and they adjusted his menu to suit which was fantastic needing to alter only one of the five courses.
The food was amazing, beautifully and skilfully prepared, cooked and presented. Jo Jo the sous chef did an amazing job with the sauces. The wines we chose both a Rose/ Pinot and the Shiraz went beautifully with the menu.
Thank you to all the staff we had a wonderful evening.

We are repeat visitors to XO. The food is exceptional and the wine list is pretty decent too. The staff are all very friendly (all of them were wearing masks). It was quite noisy when we arrived with two large tables being boisterous. But otherwise, this is one of our favourite restaurants in Oz.
