This was our last dinner on a 17-day trip through Vietnam and Cambodia. I don't think I had stars in my eyes when we came, as I was already nostalgic for the sunny smiles of Cambodia. Still, Xu was a great experience: multiple courses of great vietnamese food--some traditional, some creative, and some just a tourist wow like the liquid... More

I did not experience any of the raving reviews of this much over-rated eatery. In fact, I must guess those were written by non-cognoscenti. What did not work with Xu as a place I could recommend to my friends are the following: - Ancient dated decor. The interior was so dark that one could not actually see much ; this... More

We tried the 7 course taster menu. It was excellent. The prices were European though so look out! Truc was the lady who looked after us. Whatever the restaurant is paying her, they need to double it! She was excellent not just serving food but also helping us understand Vietnamese culture. A very special lady

We visited this restaurant as part of a bigger party of people visiting Saigon. We enjoyed a tasting evening sampling the local cuisine and I have to say I wasn't disappointed with the quality- plenty of all tastes. Staff were polite and helpful explaining each dish as it was presented. We never felt rushed. The visit was early in a... More

Be careful on busy nights. The staff are blatantly running a change scam. I bought a single beer with 500k note. Waited 30 minutes for change despite multiple requests to see a manager. A friend also separately was due significant change. I could see that the staff kept a pile of unclaimed change atop the till and actively delayed transactions... More

Very last minute decision to try this restaurant as it was close to the hotel and we'd been walking all day! What a treat we experienced. After the walk through the pulsating bar area, upstairs is the peace of a rather chic surroundings restaurant. The staff were very attentive and obviously very proud of the food they were serving.

Considering all the other delicious authentic food you can get in HCM this is extremely overpriced. Cost of around $120 ea for 7courses and drinks seems like a good deal comparing to AU prices but you dont get much food for that. Some dishes were fantastic but others just average. The drinks package says unlimited but you can really only... More
