The food served by the talented folks at Xu is exceptional. Our group had a set menu and the variety and presentation of all the dishes was just amazing. Suffice it to say that you "gotta eat here".

Dinner at Xu was very great for me and my friends . The service is second to none, fast, efficient and friendly. Restaurant menu is changed weekly so you will be servered with new dishes everytime you visit the restaurant. There are several special dishes here, ask the restaurant staff introduce to you.

I only visited the cigar lounge, which was excellent - great atmosphere, reasonably priced drinks, and a good selection of Cuban cigars on offer. Very popular place to be, lots of beautiful women. They ran a happy hour which ran late (9 PM several nights). Cigars were well maintained, obviously kept in a proper humidor- none of the various samples... More

I have been to the bar downstairs many times but only once ventured up the stairs to the restaurant. For a number of reasons tonight seemed like the right time to go and I was not disappointed. Contrary to other reviews I found the service excellent, discreet and yet attentive. The food superb. The menu has been carefully considered and... More

The team here try hard. it shows how difficult it can be to try and cater for both the cocktail bar and foodie crowds in the same location. The service is good and the atmosphere is okay if you are dining early. If dinning late/lingering after your meal - be prepared for the thump thump "vibe" from downstairs bar/club and... More

Dear Boots, We are sorry that making you disappointed. We was wondering if you visited Xu on weekdays or weekend as on weekdays we just have a slow music at the Lounge. And the DJ will just play on weekend only after 10pm which almost the customers had finished their dinner. Thank you so much for coming. We appreciate your... More

We had a dinner with friends when visited Saigon. Our tour guide recommended this place. The food was good, more expensive than most good restaurants we visited in Vietnam. Our table was upstairs in the dark corner, service was just okay. Most likely I will not go back there if I visit Saigon again.
