A magical fusion of flavors

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.

the food is really exceptional (except the vegetable-only dish being rather bland). The letdown, however, is the service. The wait staff seemed to operate somewhere between disinterested and downright rude. Too bad because it could be a really great experience.

One of the best restaurants in the Northwest for seafood. Not fancy but great food. They have excellent local seafood....oysters, clams, geoducks and salmon. Not surprisingly they are owned by Taylor Seafood Company which is one of the largest oyster and clam harvesters in the Northwest. Xinh Dwelley the chef has been cooking since a teenager, and is almost always... More

Recently visited Xinh's for the first time in a few years. She is very talented and has an inspired and unique cooking style that far exceeds the location in which her restaurant resides. We had a delicious dinner with crap cakes, her wonderful side salad, fried oysters and halibut. All dishes were good and plentiful. In the past we have... More

Ordered Geoduck clam for appetizer, crab cakes and curry chicken for entrée. Crab cakes showed up first after waiting 45 minutes. Then Geoduck clam showed up 30 minutes later. We had to ask what happened to the curry chicken after waiting another 30 minutes from a different waitress. Food was excellent, service horrific.

Xinh's Mediterranean Mussels are out of this world! The dish consists of mussels in the shell on top of spaghetti noodles, with a spicy tomato-based sauce. Xinh cooks everything herself and usually manages to find time to personally greet each guest. Everything that I've eaten at this restaurant has been delicious. I've dined in many countries, this is one of... More
