At first we were a little disappointed because the menu is very small. However, the food did not disappoint. Everything we had was superior. The ambiance is nice as well, with cigars and fine wines for sell.

Xu Restaurant is a chic restaurant in central Saigon near the Opera Hose where we dined on a 3 course tasting menu described as modern Vietnamese cuisine with traditional roots. The menu offered a wide selection including Lemongrass Skewered Sea Bass and Banana Flower Salad that were delicious. The Coconut Braised Pork Belly was very fatty and would avoid next... More

If you are near Hai Ba Trung and have had a busy morning then there is no better place to go for a quiet drink and a light lunch than Xu. Amidst the low light and cool this is a perfect venue to relax and regain your strength for the afternoon. It is an equally good place to visit in... More

Had a good couple of hours here, we'd been out for a meal close by and stumbled upon this place. I have to say that it was a good, fun place for drinks, cocktails were really nice, service was good, prices were payable. What was negative was the extremely drunken Vietnamese groups in there, but, its a bar, and you... More

this city has much to offer in the way of food - seems like Xu is catering to the western palate,but I feel like you miss th taste of the city if you go for the prix fixe menu. 2/7 tasting dishes (#5 and 6 - the main and the scallop/duck portions) were very good, the rest not worth mentioning......

We stumbled across this place at the end of our VIETNAM trip and I have to say... The 7 course degustation (NZ $77) was absolutely sensational! Every course was perfect. Top marks for innovation, taste and friendly experienced waitstaff in a beautiful setting. Highly recommend anyone staying in Ho Chi Minh to dine here.

We went to this restaurant with APT prior to going on their delightful Mekong River Cruise. They were not fazed by serving some 80 people to dinner. We had the tasting menu, 3 courses with 3 small dishes for each course. The menu was inspired by Luke Nguyen and was absolutely wonderful. If we are ever in Ho Chi Minh... More
