Good value

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... read 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

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

I was staying down the road and decided to pop in here to grab some takeaway. Excellent decision. I got the red curry spring rolls and the pork cheek, way too much four for me, could easily if shared if I wasn't alone. Service was quick and prices were reasonable considering the quality and size of dishes. Highly recommend.

Excellent Vietnamese food, well priced and a great place to watch all that Crown Street Surry Hills has to offer parade by. Thoroughly enjoyed the spicey beef curry and prawn rolls!

We had been meaning to go to Xage for some time as we are locals to the restaurant. The good part is the food was nice. However I was extremely annoyed when they insist on charging 3% surcharge when paying with any type of card. On questioning the staff, they all agreed it was unnecessary as this wasn't a bank...

The location is very nice and the service is very good. But the food is not so good for the high price.

I ate here in February 2015 after wandering around in Surry Hills. The service was great and very efficient considering how busy the place was. The restaurant is not very big, but they have both indoor and outdoor seating. It's BYO, so on alcohol sold, but you can bring your own for a small fee. We had the the following,... More
