A Cinematic Reinterpretation of 1930’s Taipei

In the heart of London’s theatre land, XU is reminiscent of the original social clubs, and the luxury dining rooms of 1930’s Taipei.

The Scene

Entering into XU, you will be greeted by the steam from the Tea Counter, mahjong tiles clashing from the mountain mural rooms; White socks, gold rings, polo necks, Xiao Tsai at the marble bar - XU is theatrical yet relaxed.

Taiwanese Cuisine

XU will offer a unique journey into Taiwanese culture and cuisine, from its food, cocktails and tea offering through to its interiors.
Diners will be transported to the mountainous regions of the island through to the busy streets of Taiwan’s capital city – Taipei.


XU is evocative of the 1930’s, incorporating warm rich wood panelling, an emerald lacquered tea kiosk in the tea rooms and hand painted murals throughout. Wooden ceiling fans from xiao chi houses and a marble bar with pink leather seats within the heart of the bustling dining room, help encapsulate the cinematic story.


Seating 74 covers over two floors, the restaurant is separated into the ground floor tea room, private mahjong rooms and the first-floor dining room. The restaurant is available to book, however we do keep several tables behind for walk ins.
