What an amazing meal

Some people will tell you that Saigon is all about the food....and I am one of them. We had lunch at this restaurant and oh my it was amazing. The staff were so attentive and the food a classical Vietnamese blend of flavours. Highly recommend.

Wonderful dining experience. Started with the three regions spring rolls,each had a distinct flavor. Two tuna was fine but not as interesting. The lemongrass sea bass was amazing, beautifully cooked with just a hint of lemongrass. The duck was the star of the show for us.

Hint when are looking for some quit place to talk and eat with friends or business partners. Downstairs of the restaurant there is a smoker bar, looks great but for non smoking people not the best place

This is central and is aiming for a high class fusion / fine dining market. This restaurantis Uni Usual because of the presentation and European style of the food. Servive good and friendly. atmosphere modern but could be improved. Claimed by some to be best restaurant in town. Certainly the best in my limited experience.

I came here for dinner on the recommendation of friends... The restaurant ticks all the boxes for me. It has a lovely atmosphere, really great welcome and their food is worth a visit. I recommend you go for the 7 course menu especially if this is your first time traveling. Yes, quite expensive but what experience…. It really takes you... More

Visited this restaurant after checking for the best restaurants at District 1. This was coming back to my research as one of the best. And it is definitely close to that. The restaurant is on the 1st floor (ground floor is a lounge bar). Decoration, Tables, chairs, etc are quite vintage, but comfortable. Staff speaks adequate English, however the menu... More

We went here for dinner as part of a tour group excursion. The food was beautifully presented, lovely flavours, and a fire breathing party trick was a nice experience. The vegetarian alternative to the planned meals were vastly different, including the desserts (which was a shame - being served fruit in a restaurant of this quality was not the standard... More

Xu Restaurant has very nice setting and atmosphere to relax and eat Fusion Vietnamese Food. The place is so relaxing but a bit pricy .

We went on New Years Day in the evening as a treat before we left Vietnam. We loved it! The service was really attentive and the food was beautiful. Nice atmosphere, lovely clean air conditioned restaurant with equally nice toilets which is rare in Asia. We struggled to find it at first, it's just a door but when you go... More

Just before my trip to Vietnam, the NZ Herald featured an online story of something like the top 100 restaurants in the world and Xu was one of them... It also happened to be right around the corner from my conference so I convinced a group of us (there were 8 of us) to go and we have NO regrets!... More
