As a solo diner wandering Surry Hills I saw this busy Vietnamese restaurant with tables on the pavement. Appetising food was piled on the tables so I took a punt. It's a BYO restaurant (which is great if you know, but was a shock to a stranger); still I drank water and felt virtuous. Not an extensive menu, but sufficient.... More

Good food but beware the dishes with a chilli next to them on the menu. I like hot food, but this blew my head off. Dishes seem quite small but are somehow very filling. Not licensed.

After seeing how busy Xage was over several weeks we decided to invite friends and try it. We were hopeful that being the last day of a holiday weekend we could get in. We were very surprised to be asked if we had a booking when we arrived as there were only 2 other tables already seated and we had... More

Always fresh, tasty, delicious food. Service is quick and polite. They tend to want people to eat and leave, but this suited us. Excellent Vietnamese food in quaint restaurant.

Just had dinner as a family of 4, the food is simply delicious and full of flavours. The service is very quick and efficient and this was fortunate as the restaurant can be quite noisy. Just note the bill must be paid in cash, credit card have a 3% surcharge.

Following the dodgers vs diamond backs opening series game at the SCG, we were looking for a proper sit down meal and found exactly what we were looking for. Xage is a lovely restaurant situated on a leafy street; open to the hustle and bustle of the traffic headed towards Surrey Hills. We had the set menu for 4 people... More

Fabulous dinner at this cute restaurant. Great food, good service, just a little uncomfortable on the bench seats, so not a place where you want to sit for hours, but they don't want you to either, as they have 2 sitting times for dinner so they can serve lots of people.

Excellent South East Asian food either as individual items or via banquet options. Open plan of the venue onto Crown Street brings the buzz of the outside inside. Great for catch ups with friends and a plus being a byo with a bottle shop just down the road at the Dolphin Hotel.

Great little set up, the decor making for a really enjoyable social setting. Food was good. A tad on the pricey side, but worth the experience at least once.

A amazing discovery in Crown street and cheap, the veg springs rolls, prawn papaya, Asian greens, Salt pepper squid were out of this world, great service, although charging $6 for byo is a bit naughty, however will be back.
