Best seafood in Shelton

Try the geoduck. They are the only place I know that serves the shellfish delicacy on Hood Canal. Always outstanding.

Have eaten at Xinh's several times now. First of all if you get to meet Xinh she is one of the nicest people out there. Came to our table to see how we were doing. Have had anniversary dinners there. My brother from Albuquerque came back to the PNW for a visit. He wanted seafood. Took him there and we... More

We started off with the marinated mussels. They were marinated in a tahini sauce and topped with grated parmesan cheese and were absolutely fabulous. My wife had the halibut special topped with an orange glaze and a side of green beans mixed with shredded carrots. I also chose an item from the specials menu, a Thai seafood stew with octopus,...

Had dinner tonight to celebrate my birthday. I had seared salmon with a wonderful sauce and my husband had the prawn curry. Both dishes were attractively displayed and tasted as good as they looked. Both served with rice and veggies. French bread is delivered to each table, as well. The iced jasmine tea is different and my husband thought it... More

Associated with the local Taylor Shellfish Company- ensures high quality, in season, local shellfish. While there is an Southeast Asia influence, the preparation never detracts from the shellfish Great fresh shellfish Very good value

We have dined at Xinh's several times during the past year. The seafood is outstanding. Xinh's features several curry dishes, but also has many other great entrees. The oyster stew is the best I have ever had. The mussels in a Tahini sauce are great. You will not be disappointed.

We went there for dinner with friends. I had a curry mussel dish and my wife had a spicy seafood soup. I have never actually eaten curry before and didn't like it. There was plenty of food and it was prepared well, i just didn't like it. My wife soup was huge, probably enough for 2, she shared it with... More

After reading all the negative reviews regarding the service we almost went elsewhere. I'm glad we didn't. We were celebrating our 32nd anniversary and wanted it to be special. I really wanted to try this place but had concerns regarding the service; they turned out to be unfounded. The service was fine and the food was good. Lesson learned -... More

Excellent restaurant for seafood. Not a lot of fish options, but plenty of oyster, prawn, mussel, clam, and other shell fish dishes. Everything is cooked perfectly and full of flavor. Our group had 3 outstanding dishes. The seafood pasta, cioppino, and black tiger prawn curry. Each was different and each was great. As others have stated, the service is not... More

Xinh's is not to be missed. Everything on the menu was fabulous. She has a larger than life personality that is welcoming and genuine and the awards on the wall echo her intuitive understanding of food and flavors.
