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

Recommended by a friend to make a visit. Food fulfilled every expectation but service ended when I got my dessert. Alone on the outside patio, it took more than 20 minutes to get the attention and ask for the bill. Waitress(-es) stood inside in the air conditioning talking, giving no attention. But in all, it's highly recommended, delicious lamb ribs,... More

Xibo is a good restaurant with a lot of quality Xinjiang dishes. The barbecue is very nice and so are all the side dishes. The atmosphere is very nice and their are normally many people there. It is a place I highly recommend for anyone to visit because it offers a lot of delicious food and despite the fact that... More

One thing to know: the food is spicy. Not every dish, and not tastebud-numbing, but spicy. Not Sichuan (Szechwan) spicy, but ... you get the picture. Furthermore, it is delicious! There is so much flavour in these dishes - I want to go back. Today. There's a cold noodle dish I'm dreaming about. Also the chicken skewers and those little... More

Friendly restaurant where we genuinly felt welcomed. The food was excellent and the view from the outside covered room good. The restaurant is on the 3rd floor so not immediately obvious from the street but well worth the effort.

3rd floor location, plenty of competition in this building. Nice atmosphere, very good friendly service; some English spoken; terrific food. Plenty of lamb on this menu if you enjoy lamb this is your place. Various kebabs from a outdoor BBQ grill. Nice vegetarian pancakes/tacos.They have a black lager beer I enjoyed. The desserts are all worthy too; great home made... More

We were here two years ago, and again two days ago. It's still one of the best in Shanghai. We only ate out for 6 dinners in Shanghai, but came back to XIbo for our last night in town. Eggplant and bread is great. Potatoes and pork is great. We were disappointed by the giant serving--a specialty, supposedly--of chicken and... More
