    • SmartShanghai.com Editor's Description
      Smart Xinjiang. Yes, it exists. It's Xibo -- an ethnic minority from the hills of NW Xinjiang, and a restaurant on Changshu Lu. Gone are the dancers and gold leaf, in are the concrete walls, picture windows, smart lighting, funk & disco soundtrack, and the region's cultural artifacts used as design features. The menu, like the province, is a mish-mish of Uighur standards and various minority dishes, the prices are low, and -- god forbid -- the vibe is even date-worthy.

    Had forgotten about this place. How could I forget about this place? It's great. The lambchops were excellent--quality of meat and taste. Not cheap at RMB120 but you get like 5 of the meaty suckers. The naan blows away any of that mouldy mildewy stuff you get on the street. The sijidou was the star--spicy and wonderful. Top it off with RMB38 draft Vedetts and a respectable attempt at atmosphere and you've got a winner that should be a regular in the Chinese food circuit.

    The friendly staff quickly guided us to our table.
    The first thing I noticed is that about 90% of the customers are foreigners, this was fortunately a good sign.

    The menu was very divers, we took a mushroom dish, some kind of pies with lamb and cheese, fried fish pieces and a a piece of lamb shoulder.
    All the normal dishes are around 40-100rmb, the dishes with lamb are a little bit more expensive.

    The dishes were all good but the Lamb shoulder was my favorite, it was around 120rmb and for 4 person so it was a lot of meat (great value for money). Most of the pieces were very tender and tasty but some of them were a little dry. The sauce with the lamb was surprisingly good.

    The service was good, the food was good, the atmosphere was good and the price was good. I certainly will come here again.

    I'll start off by saying this is my first exposure to Xinjiang/Uighur food, so I'm not really qualified to comment on the style/execution of the dishes I suppose. But as a lover of most Chinese food styles and of middle eastern food I was highly anticipating eating at Xibo.

    Atmosphere was great and service was pretty quick for me, and staff was actually quite friendly and helpful. The food left me a little disappointed though. The lamb and bread dish was VERY short on lamb, and the little that was there was extremely fatty. After about 4 bites I was left with a plate of fat-laden bread and some onion bits. The Chinese olive dish was beautifully presented but not especially flavorful, and the pan-fried dumplings were quite oily and didn't really have the slight crispiness I'm used to from fried dumplings. Again, I'm no expert in the style, but I have to imagine "real" Xinjiang food is crispy when fried, has the pungent punch of middle eastern food, and doesn't skimp on the lamb. Maybe I'm off base though.

    I would definitely give this place another shot, and there are tons of other dishes on the menu I'd love to try, but I've been wowed by several restaurants in Shanghai and this isn't one of them.
