“Long time favourite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

Xixi is our favourite Chinese food place on the island and we visit quite often, but yesterday's dinner exceeded all expectations! The Guo Tie were perfectly cooked, the Xixi's Special thinly sliced and perfectly flavoured, the Yuxiang Chicken in 'bird's nest' was amazing as always, but the main highlight was the Whole Crispy Skin Fish, what an incredible dish. A whole cod (merluzz) deep fried to perfection, crispy on the outside, juicy and tender on the inside. If you like fish, please don't miss out on this! Keep up the good work Xixi Restaurant!!

“Excellent”

Have been here on many occasions. Had a wonderful meal for everyone this time with beautiful fresh flavours. Always get a great welcome and the specialities from the regional menu are consistently excellent. This restaurant is a hidden gem not to be missed !

“A Chinese restaurant that makes you go back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

Probably the first Chinese restaurant in Gozo. Mao Xi the proprietor has captured the taste of her clients and included in the menu food like calf liver, quails, and other food that the Gozitan people like. She is a perfect host always smiling and makes you feel at home in a quaint ambience. There are other dishes to choose like fresh fish cooked the Chinese way and is delicious, also available is Kangaroo and wild boar! The portions are more than adequate and the quality is always excellent.

“WEEKLY VISIT TO XI XI'S.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

We go to XI XI;s every week. i think that is enough recommendation. When we do not go we usually get a 'take away'.
