Come here via my friend’s suggestion. And Xu’s really over my expectation. First time come and fist time taste modern Vietnamese cuisine. The food was stunning, outstanding and taste-wise! Lots of Vietnamese flavors and cooking styles, but done in a truly modern, gourmet fashion. I enjoyed all courses, all of it was top-notch! A great 'experience dining' option in Ho... More

Nothing special at all. I can't understand how other critics say that it is amazing. For sure it has been one of the worst dinners I had in Vietnam where you can eat well almost every where. The food wasn't bad but nothing special either. Having only one night in Ho chi Minh I would have loved to go to... More

Great restaurant! We did the 7course degustation with drinks, and I wouldn't have done it any other way. Food was delicious and the right balance. Staff were lovely and attentive without being in your face all the time. A great dining experience, and I would suggest testing a couple of the edible cocktails. Great value for money for a fine...

This a fantastic place. Sophisticated, food is always on point. Great presentation, great ambiance. Downstairs is a lounge area to meet young professionals and upstairs has a beautiful decor and a great atmosphere for indulging in some imaginative and tasty cuisine. I love this place.

One always has to bear in mind that satisfaction is a function of expectations. I asked our concierge where I could have good Vietnamese food, and he named the Xu among others. We went there tonite, and my wife had the 5 course tasting menu and I the 7 course menu. Our biggest problem with the food was that it... More

WOW!!! We went there as part of an APT cruise experience. We would classify ourselves as real foodies who eat out constantly, and often at the very best spots.

If you like a simple but fancy atmosphere, this is the place for you. Try happy hour, where you get real value for money. We also tried snacks there and they were really delicious. Xu is a must for all visitors to HCMC.
