Really good

Very good food but on the night I went it was so busy, and noisy! It was hard to enjoy the food when I couldn't hear my companion. The seating arrangements exacerbated the problems.

We have eaten here a number of times and always enjoyed it. I have reviewed this restaurant previously. However we ate here last night and were stunned at the extra charges. We had bought a birthday cake with us and I had asked the restaurant when we booked if this was ok. They were fine with it but did not... More

The food is simply fantastic. The signature beef and pork belly dishes are amazing; good sized portions and sumptuous flavours. It's a BYO place so don't forget to bring your beer and wine along. The tables are close together so you're intimate with strangers but it's merely adds to the ambiance of the place. It also does collection and delivery... More

Recommended to us by friends and the food did not disappoint. We went on a Saturday night and people were queuing up outside. There are sittings but you can make a reservation. We booked for 6 pm and the table wasn't required until 8.30 pm so we had plenty of time. Would definitely go again.

I am a local and went to Xage for dinner last night. I enjoyed the food and although a noisy restaurant, I would access this for take away as its just around the corner from home. But I am spoilt for choice in this area, and with a 3% surcharge for Mastercard/Visa, I will not return to this place-I hate... More

I really appreciated the interior design (that was the reason I took a seat), prawn rolls with mint/carrots etc (4 pieces for 9.50aud) and ginger chicken (17.50 aud). But was the fried rice chicken with onion and chilli julienne (17.90aud) that I liked more. Was tasty. Almost with a squeeze of lemon on it. Service was fast enough and really... More

We visited Saturday night without booking and lucky to squeeze into this small and tight tabled restaurant. Be prepared to sit on top of one another but the food is terrific . Spring rolls to die for along with the salt peppered squid. No byo but the hotel 2 mins away has a bottle shop. Very well priced with a... More

We called for reservations and they they were full, they offered us a table for 4 at 6:30. It's an open air restaurant with all of the sliding doors/windows opening to the sidewalk. It has a nice vibe. They pays tribute to the culinary traditions of central and southern Vietnam, with an emphasis on spices, freshness and balance. It's Vietnamese... More

Intimate restaurant with a nice open front onto Crown Street. Dined here on Sunday evening and was pretty busy, always a good sign. Food was good, enjoyed the rice paper rolls to start and we had a selection of seafood dishes. Despite being warned the Black Tiger Prawn stir fry was hot, it wasn't, which was a shame because we...

We arrived for an 8.30pm booking. First we were told they didn't have our booking despite showing an email confirmation from the restaurant. They rudely asked us to move out of the way while they tried to find our booking and a table. Finally they advised that they had found our booking and led us to the table. After being... More
