Smart and stylish with delicious and complex tasting menus.

The restaurant sits above its own cocktail bar. It was quite unlike any other we have tried in Vietnam. The menu favours tasting menus ( either 3, 5 or 7 courses). We had the 5 course which included 9 savoury and 4 sweet dishes. Each was beautifully presented and varied in flavour. The 5 spice... read more

I visited this place with colleagues and the food was nice. I found it a bit expensive but the ambiance was nice.

The concierge of our hotel (Le Meridien) recommended this restaurant. I checked it out first on the Internet and decided to go with my family. There are 2 floors. The ground floor is a lounge bar, while the first floor is the restaurant. The ambience here is elegant and serene. They offered set menus, ranging from 3 courses to 7,... More

We had a delicious farewell finner at the "Xu". Dinner was fabulous (they offer you a three course, five course, or seven course tasting menu and you should definitely take any of these). We had the five course menu which actually consisted of a large number of sub-courses - e.g. the dessert consisted of a tapioka soup, a chocolate-orange truffle,... More

A group of us had a set menu lunch today and it was probably the best food we have had since arriving in Siem Reap 10 days ago, and cruising the Mekong River for a week. Fabulous combinations and beautifully presented, and tastes so good. Well done

This is a really stylish and popular restaurant. The decor is very modern as are those who frequent. The menu is good, the food was good but I fear not as great as the place might suggest. We did have a pleasant time, it would have been better if we hadn't been so rushed. My husband had barely finished his... More

Atmosphere and service were both great. We came here for lunch, but it should also be a great place for dinner. Food-wise, I ordered a beef noodle soup (not pho) and I thought it was so so. The soup noodles itself tastes alrite, but the soup was definitely not hot enough. So yes.. A bit strange to have a bowl... More

Depending on which menu you chose, which are a combination of 3 or 5 course set menus, the food is brilliant . You can also order from their other menus which include sharing dishes. It's not the cheapest in Saigon but fine dining and the prices to match. It is however worth every penny so push the boat and have... More

We dined at Xu after friends recommended it after their dinner the night before. We opted to dine a la carte rather than have the degustation menu. All dishes were wonderful (can't remember exactly what we had now!). Service very attentive. Wine was expensive as it is across almost all of Asia although we found a lovely Chilean chardonnary resonably... More
