While this is one of the more expensive restaurants in Saigon, I do enjoy it. Very good service by a talented and knowledgable staff.

If you like fish like I do..you would love to have it at Xu. the sour soup was excellent to savour other dishes. cooking Vienamese food is simple, selling it is not easy, since we have it everyday , we always compare the dishes from restuarants to restaurants, especially we compare it with what Mom or Grand Mom cooked for...

While I don't profess to being an expert on Vietnamese food I am definitely a foodie who loves good food. I had the 5 course taster meal which was excellent, the service was spot on and the restaurant and ambience were great. However, for 1,000,000D +10%+5% it just wasn't worth it. For free flow drinks it would have cost 1.9... More

Absolutely incredible. Service was impeccable and the food is unreal. The crab on rice cracker is a must have and the skewered sea bass was delicious! A little pricey for Saigon but worth it!

From Nha Trang to the busy city, Saigon. We had a great time on DJ night at Xu Restaurant and Lounge. It was a good timing since we came in at happy hour with a 50% discount. Good cocktail, Single malt whisky, tapas and we met many interesting people there. Lots of fun!

Our first destination for the trip, was HCMC and by chance a friend recommended us to Xu restaurant. We had dinner there before heading to Cambodia. We chose the seven course tasting menu with free flow package, with wine and cocktails included. It was lovely evening with Vietnamese dishes elegantly presented, and then the dessert plate.

This was a high light of our trip and the best vietnamese food we had. They have 3,5 or 7 courses but really you get double that. Very high quality food, with a lounge downstairs filled with groovy young people. Could not eat all my food and in the end couldn't even taste all the dishes. Highly recommend this place.
