Awesome little spot. Great wine and cocktail options, and fantastic food menu. Pork buns are a must try!

So now that dumplings are the "new sushi" we get more picky about them.....Xuxu is up there with the best of them. Sure, it's not cheap *really, what is in Auckland now?) and it tries a bit hard to be trendy but the food is great and service is fast.

We came here last night after work with my friend . We had a couple of cocktail and 3 types of mouth watering dumpling " chicken & shiitake dumpling , pork & shrimp , spinach & water chestnuts " which were amazing flavour - loved it ;) !
The staff were friendly & fast service with a romantic cool ambience. My only critic was the wine of the price which was over the $$$.
Overall was a fun night !

Came here because had to wait for dinner table of restaurant across the street. Originally only wanted to get some drinks but the smell of the dumplings were too tempting.

Ordered the fish, chilli and lime leaves. The taste was so fresh and delicious that we had to try another one - was recommended the beef & lemongrass - and again, super sumptuous. If we hadn't had a dinner table I would've tried all the dumplings !!

Came on a Saturday night. Sat outside, nice breeze. Atmosphere is laid back yet trendy. Service is excellent. Highly recommend this place.

We arrived at XuXu at around 9pm for a post dinner drink . It is a small inviting place with a lovely ambiance but as it turned out not much more. We did not eat their dumplings so we cannot comment on their food . The staff were standing around talking and appeared to be utterly disinterested in their customers . The service was slow and sloppy. Very had to imagine returning !
