Lovely food... disappointing service

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... read more

We Enjoyed fried oysters and a prawn dish. Servings are very generous and the flavors Are always good. For good seafood, you cannot.beat this restaurant in Shelton. They are only... 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

The food there are great, a bit pricey but if you can afford it good place to eat. I would say the waiting time is longer than I expected, I hope they can improve there service better.

My brother and his wife flew in from Honolulu and drove all the way to shelton in the rain for a gueyduc dinner. Last time my brother was here we had sauted gueyduck and lightly breaded gueyduc. This time the gueyduc was so thickly breaded it is was hard to taste the clam. A couple of pieces were even burnt... More

Xinh's is located a half hour North of Olympia in Shelton...a somewhat depressed community. About the only reason I can think of for going to Shelton is to dine at this restaurant. Xinh is the name of the owner, who also happens to be the chef. She is a larger than life figure that spends countless hours giving of her... More
