XU Restaurant Diner Reviews
"This recently opened restaurant on the edge of Chinatown has been stylishly fitted out and not at all typical of other Chinese restaurants in this area. Service is very efficient and polite but the main star is the quality and presentation of the food"
"After reading a glowing review for this restaurant in The Guardian a friend and I took a chance at being able to get in early one evening without a booking. I think that we maybe bagged the last table as by the time we had finished eating the staff were quoting a 1 to 2 hour wait for a table! The restaurant has recently opened and the fittings are beautifully designed giving a real air of opulence akin to thirties art deco style. Food was superbly prepared and presented with attentive service. A real find but be prepared to book."
"Beautiful restaurant, charming service and most importantly interesting and challenging food. Love it."
