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

Visiting a friend in Shanghai I asked for some different chinese food and we went to Xibo. I really liked it, we ordered different starters and mains and mixed them all. So I had 6 or 7 different things to eat and they all were at least good.

Went with a group of educators on a summit training. Uyghur cuisine is the most fascinating as well as the most exquisite I've had. Xibo is also a socially responsible business who give either 1% of revenue or 25% of profits to select charities in western China.

We came during peak hours of dinner, luckily we got a table for two easily. Love the interior design, very unique yet classy taste. We noted that their service was a bit slow. But we were spoiled by their interior details, thus service wasn't an issue for us. Ordered two dishes: local rice with some meat on the top and... More

Second time here and the food didn't disappoint. Ordered a number of dishes, including veg, bread, skewers and a main of stew (chicken, peppers with handmade noodles). This was shared between 4 people during lunch. Overall, the food was good, the broccoli slightly too salty for my tastes but the stew was extremely delicious. We even ordered extra noodles to...
