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.

First time come here and I was not disappointed. Contrary to other negative reviews I found the service excellent and discreet. The food is superb – five course tasting with matching wine. They do good wine selection. The menu has been carefully considered and thus is a culinary experience. It is truly fine dining. I would highly recommend the restaurant... More

This is one of the more expensive restaurants in Saigon. The food is quite nice, but as a tourist it is quite hard to justify the prices. I had just as good if not better food (and service) at other restaurants in Saigon for less than half the price and the atmosphere certainly does not justify the price. The restaurant... More

I have loved this bar/lounge/restaurant since arriving in Ho Chi Minh City. Very centrally located in Hai Ba Trung Street, District 1 - you would possibly miss it if you didn't know where it was! 3 hour happy hour from 5.30pm - 8.30pm Monday to Friday and some of the best cocktails in HCMC - try the martinis! Excellent service... More

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!
