This is a must visit restaurant if you like Asian food that is a bit different from the usual run of the mill. We visit the Sunshine coast a couple of times each year (we live about 1,000kms away) and this is our third visit to Embassy XO for an evening meal.

We would call it a modern fusion of some Asian styles with some slight Asian twists on non-Asian dishes. If you expect the standard Thai meal, don’t go here, but if you want to try some innovative ideas, try it. We ordered the banquet which contained three entrees, three mains and one desert. The range covered some of their well-regarded dishes and was as good as our previous visits.

The staff were extremely helpful; one of our party wanted a custom pre-dinner cocktail and the young waitress was very accommodating with a couple of iterations to get there. Even the green tea we had was not your normal variety, but tasted exceptional; that may have been the food, but it sure blended in well.

We will return again and again as this standard remains.

A very popular restaurant for Sunday yum cha, the yum cha banquet @ $32 is a standout set menu treat. Combined with green tea as the beverage of choice, it is also inexpensive. It is probably best to go for a booking around 1.30pm to avoid being rushed to get you through for the next sitting.

I have been to this restaurant several times now. We have tried the Locals Menu, the Yum Cha and the a la carte menu.
It is tucked away upstairs at the end of Duke Street. The decor is true to the Asian fusion theme of Embassy XO.
Our last visit was on a balmy February evening and the cool sea breezes coming through the wall of louvres was most welcome.
The staff at this restaurant are very friendly and professional, they can answer any question you may have about the delicious food or the extensive wine list.
The food here is amazing and by that I don’t mean just great. I always look forward to my next visit to try something new, although I always have problems going past the Taro cakes for entree they are to die for.
I have not detailed any particular dish as I could not do them justice with words, you have to try them for yourself, Embassy will not disappoint.

Pity Michelin don't do Australia because if they did this restaurant would be a contender for a star. Three reasons: taste, innovation and consistency. We have dined here on our holidays for the last three years and the quality of the food has never been less than excellent.
