Was taken to Xu Restaurant as part of a package deal with a tour company. The set menu was several courses each of with highlighted modern Vietnamese cuisine. The service and food were really good as was the wine and beer. No complaints and would head back there again given the opportunity.

First with a group (Uniworld), second in my own. In both cases the food was excellent, a set menu with the group, a la carte menu when visited in my own. Rolls from North, Center and South as an appetizer, and filet mignon as main dish. Good selection of wines by the glass. Refined service. It is pricey for Vietnam,... More

The atmosphere is nice, even though the restaurant feels a bit too dark and hot at times. Also, there are no windows. This restaurants positions itslef at very high level, but some key elements to be actually there need to be improved: passion and knowledge from the waiters, and dishes presentation. The food was good, but not amazing as we... More

We went in a large group and the first impression was classy. The menus are presented in book form. The food was very nice and had lots of seafood on the menu. Service was very good and waiters were professional.

This is the first time I've gone to a Vietnamese lounge. My colleagues invited me and paid the bill so I dont know exactly the price but I was very satisfied with the romantic atmosphere. I will go there in the next weekend for ordering another cocktail and enjoy it.

We go here a lot and love it! Great scene to catching up with friends for drinks. Cocktails are probably the best in Saigon. Definitely give the risotto balls a try

We had a fantastic 5 course degustation with free flow drinks (beer, 2 wines, selected cocktails and soft drinks). The service was impeccable. The drinks were generous. The food was amazing. The way dessert was done here was great. Served in Chinese soup spoons, you only get a 'taste' of the dessert but they are so cheap you just find... More

We visited Xu in October 2012 and we've been thinking/talking about it since. Maybe we had delusions of grandure or maybe we were tired from the travelling from Australia that day but it did not live up to our expectations. The staff were absolutely fabulous and extremely attentive but unfortunately the food this time has let it down. I'm hoping... 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
