Great location - restaurant is on the second floor - which allows a more subdued atmosphere in keeping with fine dining. Infusion, modern - very unique. We had the banana flower salad, banh he, crispy pork wonton (delicious) pomelo and mango salad, sea bass (ummm cooked with wood ear mushrooms, kafir lime leaf scented coconut milk) braised pork with pickled...

Definitely the best bar I have found in Saigon. Service is impeccable, every time. Happy hour is fantastic, 50% of all drinks from 5.30-8.30pm, Monday-Saturday. Quality alcohol and trained bartenders. Anyone who says this place is overpriced doesn't realise the quality they are getting compared to the bars on Pham Ngu Lao. Lighting is perfect and layout of the bar... More

A nice bar to be seen and chill and socialise with friends and meet new friends. Nice friendly atmosphere, lots of energy in this bar as the business deals and socialising buzzes all around. Cool music, fast barmen, well mixed drinks, great mix of people coming and going all night long. Nice place to chill.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our tour company, and was near the Sheraton Hotel where we were staying. It was easy to find. The menu was mainly Asian food, the food was tasty, not too expensive, and the service was good. In other words, if you don't want to eat hotel food, want a decent place to eat,... More

Based on other travellers' reviews, we expected a more mellow ambiance where we could chat w friends. It turns out sat night is ROCKING, with music levels at club-level (ie shouting is needed). Having said that, the DJ was good! Just a case of mismatched expectations as we were a group of friends intending to chat. Nonetheless, Xu's management was... More

Stopped in for the bar menu at an off hour on a holiday. Very quiet and romantic. The best infused Gin and tonic I have ever had to the point I might try to make the infusion after my return to the States. The bar food was high end excellent.

Xu is a nice classy place. The drinks are a bit pricey but great during happy hour. It's a nice change from what you usually get in Saigon. Nice place for date drinks.
