Great lamb options among an extensive menu and a good atmosphere. Busy so book if possible but service is good.

I have been to a few different Xinjiang style restaurants in shanghai and this one caters to westerners the best. Others don't take reservations or are too crowded for my taste but Xibo is an exception. Took my wife and boss here for his first xinjiang food experience and he was very impressed. We had lamb in about 5 different... More

For sure that's good: yummy platters (lot around BBQ, lamb & bread), well presented but is that really all about Xinjiang ? I'd rather tend to say "Fusion Xinjiang" but surely worth a try if not reluctant to face that Hengshan Lu chic / posh atmosphere.

I Always try to make it to Xibo för dinner while in Shanghai. Why? Because of the food and the relaxed atmosphere and the location. Just now I don't remeber the reion of the kitchen but it spicy and it is to die for. I love the aubergien apetizer, the chilit chicken and the lamb chops. The cocktails are good... More

Specializing in Xibo cuisine, one of the 55 Chinese ethnic minorities, Xibo was founded to bring “a new level of freshness and style to Xinjian food”. I came on a weeknight and it was not crowded – no reservation needed. At first it seemed like the service would be good, but I was wrong – I was constantly ignored. After... More

I have been traveling to China for over 25 years, but have never been to a Xinjiang style restaurant before. I will definitely be coming back! The atmosphere of the restaurant was very nice. We sat on an enclosed porch that was comfortable and private. We also got to watch the cook prepare many of the barbecued dishes on a... More

Nice place, open roof option especially in the evening. A tempting menu, spicy food, excellent Xinjiang beer. Quick and efficient service, dishes are big and the quality is there.

Promised as the best Xinjiangese restaurant in Shanghai, it is just a mediocre place to restore. Pricey, not so delicious, just average. Setting is not that nice also. Good potential, but unexpressed.

This was my second time at the restaurant - very good flavors and great dishes - we enjoyed the leg of lamb and some of the starters - one item I would definitely recommend to try is the black beer which has a great flavor
