Phenomonal flavours. Wonderful service and a beautiful space. I adore this place.
Food, service and ambience all 1st class. Would certainly recommend and will certainly make further visits.
Very good dinning experience,and refreshingly different decor.A little gem.
Amazing experience; delicate and delicious dumplings. Will be back to try dinner menus.
Overall, I really liked the place. We were seated at once even if we were 15 minutes early and got a good table. I booked this place a month ago so I was excited to try it out. Service was excellent throughout the evening. The decor was nice but did not feel authentic enough, maybe because it wasn't covered completely through the ceiling with dark wood. The food was very good overall. My top dishes were the Chicken wings, Aged beef & Tofu which were all excellent dishes. The Taiwanese beer was also amazing which says a lot coming for someone who is not a big fan of beer. Overall the place is well worth a visit and good value for money.
Great food and service! Will definitely be returning
I was a bit disappointed for only having the lunch menu available. Not like before where we had the whole Carte.
Refined, regional Chinese cuisine with a twist. The dishes and sauces were done very well and authentic. Some dishes I have not seen since I was a child in East Asia. The decor took me back in time too.
Excellent service. Excellent food too though the dishes are delicate rather than punchy (apart from the beef tendon which was fiery). I had expected more complex flavouring. Don't get me wrong, the food was very tasty ( I've heard it is meant to be authentic but with a Westernised edge) That said, I don't think £18.50 for chicken breast and crispy skin was justified, however succulent and well flavoured.
The best food I have tasted for a long time! Let bed the interior; takes you back to the 1930’!
Great food with interesting menu. Waiter was excellent at suggesting and describing dishes. Desserts both lovely and complemented each other. Table a little too tiny. Would go back.
Exceptional in every way
It worth trying
This is a really original venue and certainly feels unique.
A gentle ambiance makes one feels we had stepped into a 1920s Chinese tea house.
The staff were good at guiding us through the menu. The food was delicate, delicious and well presented. Definitely worth it for understated style and food.
Quick attentive service but frankly the food is over-priced for what it is. I am quite familiar with Taiwanese food and even my Taiwanese friend and I agreed it wasn't exactly authentic. Doesn't make it bad food, just don't expect it to be true Taiwanese.
We had a great lunch at Xu. The service was friendly & efficient, the food was delicious & the range of whiskes was especially notable.
Everything was utterly delicious and I have zero hesitation returning to eat, every meal, for the next month. If Xu can arrange this I would be most appreciative!
Went for lunch and dinner. Big difference in service on each occasion. Dinner was at 9:30 so not too late. But staff were non existent or else readying to pack up for the night. No one asked for more drinks. When we asked bar tender had left his station. Service was generally very poor. Kitchen had long lapse between dishes. Just poor management. Shame because quality of food is good and deserves better management especially in the evenings.
Loved this place! Attentive service and great food. The price was extremely sensible too!
Incredible food, great service. Absolutely spot on for a business lunch and will definitely be returning
Everything was great about Xu, I can't wait to return
