We were there on November 12th. The lounge on the groundfloor is a nice place. Many expats and tourists. The food in the restaurant is Vietnamese Haute Cuisine. We had traditional dishes served very nicely, prepared and cooked on star level. The price level for the food is relatively low. However, when you order a bottle of wine, it will... More

A very nice restaurant to start our tour of Vietnam...the decor and ambience is very upscale and unique, not we expected for our first local vietnamese restaurant but pleasant...we both went for the 5 course tasting menu and had a wonderful range of fresh flavour, new tastes (for us) and perfect portions. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to try different... More

I was recommended to come here on an expat group on Facebook and we were certainly not disappointed. Fantastic service, lovely sparkling white wine at a reasonable price, and an array of delicious dishes to try out. We decided to try a few dishes from the a la carte menu and share them which worked out well, basically like tapas... More

My wife and I love food, and our trip to Vietnam was built largely around the wonderful street food that is available everywhere in Ho Chi Minh. To offer some contrast, we had our last meal of our visit in Xu : and what a treat. The head chef, an Australian Vietnamese, has unashamably fused the local cuisine with more... More

Me and my friends went to Xu to "Just" grab something good and sort of local to eat. We saw a picture of the restaurant in a travelguide and we went. We got more then we wanted: the food is delicious, is fusion Vietnamese and is served tapas-style! Perfect for a lovely night out with friends! They have a good... More

Had the tasting menu and it was fun and beautifully prepared. Lovely dining room, though one needs to hold one's breath while walking through the smoke-filled downstairs lounge on the way to the restaurant upstairs. Would go again in a heartbeat.

Dear Mr. Roland, First of all, we are really sorry for this problem caused to you. Our manager gave her an appropriate action on that waitress.
