“A Very Excellent Surprise”
Reviewed September 13, 2011

I'd heard absolutely nothing about Xi-Xi and basically wandered in off the street, pretty skeptical about the only Chinese restaurant in a pretty small village like Xaghra. Both the food and service were excellent, though, and it was one of the best Chinese meals I've had. Very highly recommended.

“Excellent Chinese food. Great service”
Reviewed September 4, 2011

Visited with my wife and kids. Excellent food, really well prepared. Much better than standard UK Chinese food!
Some of the dishes were a little sweet for our taste, but the quality and service were excellent. Would definitely recommend this for those looking for a change from local cuisine whilst in Gozo

“The food was purely beautiful a must for evreybody”
Reviewed July 31, 2011

The food was excellent i went to celebrate my birthday and honestly evrey bite i took was like an explosion of tasty. The starter was a chicken and corn soup it was excellent it was sweet and light second where some duck rolls wich where positively delightful the crab legs where nice and not too much oil was used and i dont even like crab legs this restaurant managed to make me like something i dont. The noodles where nice however it had a bit too much curry and at the end the service made me a cake wich was excellent by the way the service was great fast and kind if some one gave this restaurant a bad review they must be crazy or they reported it on april 1sth as a joke this restaurant is perfect and the extra star is for creativity since the cook came up with her own recipe Chinese burgers wich tasted nice and sweet

“A gem”
Reviewed June 30, 2011

I never thought I would eat Chinese food in Gozo and be overwhelmed. The food was full of flavours that burst from every dish. For those who like spicy dishes the menu included a great range of dishes and we went back five times in the fortnight, suggesting that Xi Xi relocate to Dundee. Sadly this was deemed too cold for the owner so we will have to go back! The service was also exemplary, attentive without being intrusive and the local wines we drank were good heavy reds that turned out to be most reasonably priced. Holidays on Gozo would not be complete without sampling this excellent Chinese Restaurant, no to be missed.

“A Huge surprise”
Reviewed May 5, 2011

Being an avid 'Xi Xi' fan, who much to my dismay always manages to destroy my diet!!!! I was appalled to read the German comment below! meaning no offense to anybody are they really sure it was not them who could not speak english?? as i surely do not speak Chinese and my food has always come out perfect!!! unfortunately for me i have a couple of medical conditions which make eating out a bit of a problem though Xi Xi and her staff have always found a way round this and prepared a variety of excellent dishes for me!!!! The food is always fresh, authentic and shows it come straight from the heart!!! The only reason i advise you to think twice before going is that once you go you will keep going back!!!! Guys keep up the great work and hope to see u real soon!!!
