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.

Been here numerous times and always a great experience. Is a good local restaurant with an asian fusion menu. They have a bar in front if you want to get drinks beforehand. They also have some tables in the bar area where you can also order appetizers.

XO has a pretty solid set menu.

The Roast Pumpkin & Spinach Gyoza are fantastic; probably the best thing on the entire menu. The Aubergine & Lychee Green Curry is also quite good, but it's more soup than curry, and it somehow stayed nuclear until well past everyone else at my table had finished their mains.

I wouldn't visit XO on a regular basis, but I enjoyed everything I had!more

The sashimi tasted dry and fishy... Now we have bubble-tummies...

The spareribs were waaaaaay salty. So did the paktjoy and the chicken? Well... We ordered two different kinds... Both we didn't finish, too salty and too boring.

Why 2* and not one? Friendly waitress, the 7yr old liked his birthday dinner!

Never coming back.more

Chilli Salt Squid: Also mediocre. A bit...more

XO's really knows how to take care of their guests! I went to a private party here and when I walked in the door they took my coat and walked me to a tray of champagne and cocktails and offered me a tantalizing adult beverage immediately!

After rounds of canapes served on trays (Note to self: eating sushimi must be done in one bite or you end up wearing some of it) we retired from the bar...more
