I visited this restaurant after hearing very positive reviews about it. The food was very delicious but was your typical Americanized deep fried Chinese food. I expected a little more after seeing they had a 'Chinese Masterchef' operating in the kitchen. Service was also average. If you are looking for Authentic Chinese food I would probably look elsewhere but If... More

Various 'Chinese restaurants' have sprung up in Gozo of late, but Xi-Xi is the oldest and best established of them all. My wife, son and I visited it for dinner. We opted for a Set Menu and really enjoyed it. Just right sized portions of food - luscious crab meat sticks, duck, beef and chicken - and crowned with a... More

A Chinese New Year gala dinner, with no concessions whatever to Western taste. Brilliant! Delicate, supple, different. You do not know what you missed!

Was in Gozo for just one night and do glad that Xixi was opened. We had an excellent meal and Madame Xixi made us feel really welcomed. Will definitely be visiting again.

I was surprised to find there is a Chinese restaurant at Xaghra, Gozo, but i was recommended by a friend to visit this place. And it didn't disappoint. Though a very small restaurant, this place provides Sichuan style cuisine and is one of the best i have visited (Chinese restaurants) in both Malta and Gozo. Slightly on the expensive side.... More

Xi-xi is all about great food and special service in Xaghra. Simple dishes, such as rice and chicken, have never been so tasteful. Besides that, the waiters and the owners have a nice touch with customers, making our meal a pleasant experience. Don't miss Xi-Xi when in Gozo.

We have been to this Chinese on a couple of occasions previously and the food was acceptable. This last visit when we took friends with us was extremely poor. Everything appeared to be so deep fried in fat it looked unhealthy. The lemon chicken was in something that appeared to be lemon curd insead of a light lemon sauce and... More
