“Best Chinese in Gozo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Definitely the best Chinese Restaurant in Gozo. Servings are abundant and pricing is reasonable. Been visiting for the last 5 years and it definitely compares to the best in London fare. Xi-Xi herself is a charming patron and will ensure that perfection is the order of the day. The quality can be tasted to be fresh and the combinations offered are well balanced. Highly recommended.

“Great group dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

I visited the restaurant for the first time on Monday 13th May 2013 with 13 others, and we all had an excellent evening. The staff were cheerful and attentive, the food was delicious and the portions generous, so unless you're feeling particularly hungry, don't order too much! I can particularly recommend the King-Po King Prawn, and the large dumpling (sorry I can't remember what it's called) featured in one of the photos was exceptional (apparently not on the menu but can be made to order).

The 8% discount voucher will undoubtedly be used by my friend who visits the island every year, but I'm wishing that I'd kept it to use myself!

“Excellent food & service - don't leave without trying the dumplings!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

Visited Xi-Xis with a regular and I had a great evening. The service from Xi-Xi herself was excellent, nothing was too much trouble. There sounded some interesting options on the specials menu but I plummeted for the main menu. The dumpling starter is second to none, you must try if you are a dumpling fan or indeed, are not. Some interesting sauces with them too. Chilli chicken was my main, which was very good, just too much of it and had to take some home. Good wine was available along with a large choice of other drinks. Ask to sit by the brilliant fish tank for some fun light entertainment!!!! A must if in Gozo and you enjoy Chinese food.

“Local Special”

Another fantastic meal in Xi Xi....this time I went for the special of the day, pork belly in garlic and chilli....with extra chilli, all freshly cooked from local ingredients, and served with the customary Xi Xi service.

Well done.
