A restaurant that belongs on this beautiful Jersey Shore location. I have lived nearby for years and never understood why so many restaurants struggled and failed on this bay front location on the west side of the Seaside Bridge. What a hit with Xina! A 5 star rating in all categories BUT call ahead for reservations...you will need them. :)

While visiting from California, we ate at Xina. It was delicious. All dishes were plentiful, tasty, fresh. I recommend Xina for a delicious and pleasant evening.

This place is ridiculous! In a very good way. We went there with a party of 10 and absolutely no one was disappointed in any way. The sushi rolls are grand and delicious. They were so big I couldn't even finish my rolls. This has never been a problem for me. They also offer a wide variety of oysters from... More

Went with my spouse and kids before they went back to college. The food was excellent; we all had the spicy rock shrimp as appetizers, which were a bit hot for me but still delicious. I had the Peking Duck which was perfectly cooked with crispy skin and amazing bok choy as a side. My spouse had General Tso's Chicken... More

Met friends for dinner here and absolutely loved it. Great menu, excellent service, and awesome food. Sushi was outstanding. BYOB. My new favorite in TR.

After several trips we've sampled Sushi, Chinese, and Thai in a number of presentations and find the unique taste of each wonderful dish, the creativity of the chefs, and the service are far above anything else available in the area. Be prepared to be surprised with many choices, for instance Peking Duck is incredibly lean and crispy but is served... More

We stayed overnight in Tom's River on our way back from New York City and stopped in to have dinner. We didn't have reservations but lucky they could accommodate us. The atmosphere is really nice and he wait staff was friendly and very helpful with the selections on the menu. We didn't know it was BYOB or we would have... More

We stopped in on a whim at about 4:30 on a recent Sunday in the height of summer. Expected a swarm of daytrippers leaving the beach but it was not crowded when we arrived. We sat at the bar (NOTE - it is BYOB) and ordered some oysters to start. The P.E.I. Malpeques and the West Coast Kumamotos were both... More

We are there last night. It was our second time. Food and service were good. Best Chinese and sushi at the shore. I would have rated this restaurant a 5 expect some weird stuff happened. We had made reservations (strongly recommended). There was just 2 of us and they made us wait while they seated several larger parties, even one... More

So, everyone in Toms River has been saying how great this place is if you are a sushi lover. They all discuss how you MUST have a reservation, and if you want to go on a weekend you better make it months in advance. That alone just made me think it's not worth the effort. My daughter's birthday was on... More
