We went to XU on many recommendations.we found the service to be as expected for a restaurant of this quality. Our server spoke excellent English and helped us navigate our way through the menu. We did not have the tasting menu, but ordered A la carte. The starter soup was delicious with wonderful subtle flavors that opened up as you... More

Very trendy place to hang out. The food was delicious but both drinks and food were way too expensive! The price was almost as high as in a lounge in my current city Geneva, one of the most expensive cities in the world. When a guy proposes a girl to have a drink at Xu, there would be a very... More

Cross the street from the hotel we stayed, that was easy to see Xu restaurant, we stopped by and checked their menu then decided to have a reservation for my wife's birthday next day. And we did not regret about our choice. We chose Three course tasting with matching wine, good food with nice decoration and nice selected wine. It... More

While the bar might be good, the service is SHOCKING! They stole our money and gave back some small change rather than what it should have been! The manager also told us she would call the following day to tell us the difference in their end of night cash, however we never received a call.

We went to XU with high expectations and the did manage to come true. We did order a 7 course taste menu with free flow of wine. Every course was a nice plate to look at and tasted really well. It was a real Vietnamese cuisine with a modern twist. The restaurant self had a good vibe and nice atmosphere.... More

So, this is somewhere to head if you are looking for something top-end, unique and special. We've been on both trips to Ho Chi Minh and would definately go again. Because we shared each dish, it felt like a 6 course meal - with each dish completely different, but equally tasty. Good wine selection too. Something to mark a special... More

I have never experienced such food in an Oriental restaurant.. We chose the seven course tasting menu and it was exquisite. Beautiful food stylishly presented and delicious. It was expensive especially for the Far East. It was over £50per head but worth every penny.

most beautiful and interesting food I have ever had! We had the degustation menu. Try a little bit of everything. So many surprises. Not cheap (compared to Vietnam in general) but so worth the visit
