Went back to same place twice in 2 days because of great spicy soup. Also the atmosphere was like on a real Thai restaurant in Bangkok street.

Xu Ji offers a wide range of Chinese cuisine from different provinces. The taste is good and the portion is quite generous. I am impressed in particular by the quality of the steamed fish which in itself is quite hard to find especially in Europe.

Was looking for somewhere to eat Chinese in centre of Brussels late evening (it was just after 11pm). Xu Ji was open but virtually empty. Went in fully expecting frosty looks from staff who probably thought they'd finished for the night (they were actually eating at a side table). On the contrary, I was greeted with friendly smile and attentive... More

We had lunch a couple weeks ago, for about 7€. Nothing to write home about but it did the trick and we would come back. The lady was nice and her "lunch" hours were very flexible, unlike most competitors in the area.

I dinner Vietnamese spring rolls and rice with beef and vegetables. Maybe the choice was the wrong one for me, but these dishes were cooked with many oil.. A bit grassy and the flavour was regular. So, I don't recommend the place, but I would say that it is not the worst one (and it opens until late)

Best authentic Chinese food in Brussels. We lived in China for 6 years and this is the only place we like. Don't be put off by the menus with pictures or the bright lighting. It does not have "atmosphere" but this is more than made up for by the great food and round table seating. The dumplings are really good... More

They renovated the interior, which doesn't match the outside much, but still, it's pleasant. They have a nice menu, didn't have the courage to go for the marinated duck tongues, so I went for the marinated chicken paws and rice cakes with smoked bacon. The dishes were nicely prepared, but could have done with a bit more seasoning. The staff... More

The dumplings here are lovely and the Peking Duck was very good. The staff were really friendly and nice. I think they renovated not too long ago because it looks really good now!

Don't let the front façade of the restaurant fool you. Inside, it looks clean and modern. The wonton soup is great. Other dishes are hit and miss, but still worth a visit.
