Grabbed a bite to lunch. Thai food that tasted good, however feels a little overpriced (15-20%). I think XO has seen better days, aside from new area the restaurant feels a little tired. Nonetheless, left satisfied.

A perfect evening: no pressure to take the 'special' Valentine's menu so we could choose à la carte as usual from a delicious selection of Japanese/Thai dishes and good wine list; service that was polished yet personal, and neither over-nor under-attentive; atmosphere quiet enough for...More

Hip little XO is part of the Ricker stable, and its trendy pedigree shows in sleek, cool décor and a stylish menu of pan-Asian delights. Black cod with miso, clay pot chicken with dates and water chestnuts and chilli salt squid display a typical culinary flair, while the airy restaurant buzzes with the chatter of a well-heeled crowd of Belsize Park locals.
