Sister bar to acclaimed Vietnamese restaurant Cafe Hanoi, Xuxu Dumpling Bar is the perfect place to begin or end your night – or settle in for the evening.

Xuxu Dumpling Bar (say “Su-su”) is one of the city’s small gems, a cosy table-service bar just across Commerce Street from its older sibling Cafe Hanoi.

Its whimsical decor carries a whisper of Eastern elegance and old-world romance: rich peacock-design drapes, stained-glass lampshades, bamboo-patterned wallpaper and an intricate turquoise and white wall mosaic.

There are no bar stools or leaners here; just intimate tables where you’re hosted by attentive staff, with the kind of warm but unobtrusive service we know and love from Cafe Hanoi. The open kitchen bustling with staff adds a touch of theatre inside, while the streetside terrace provides a front-row seat to the hum of the Britomart precinct beyond.

Drinks and Dumplings

There’s a moreish list of Asian-inspired cocktails and a small, but thoughtfully created selection of dumplings to please even the pickiest of palates. On the drinks list select wines, boutique beers and spirits have been carefully chosen to complement the food.

With its quirky atmosphere and delicious dumplings, the delightful Xuxu Dumpling Bar is a worthy drink or dinner destination. With a fortnightly changing wine list and new cocktails constantly in the works, it’s a cosy corner spot worth a visit.
