If you love oysters, clams, muscles and everything in between from the sea, that this is a not-to-be-missed restaurant. Xinh is the owner and she and her staff don't miss a beat in taking the best from the sea and bringing it to the table. The fried oysters melt in your mouth, the mussels in curry sauce are unbelievable and... More

All the reviews about the amazing food here are so true. Seafood is wonderful, flavors interesting, and portions generous. We had fresh halibut perfectly prepared. Tasty house salad with tahini dressing. Crab cakes that my husband declared were the best he'd ever had. Ambiance is pleasant but not exceptional. We had to wait a while before the server came to...

The stars aligned to justify the longest trip to a dining destination I've ever made! I'd eaten only once before at Xinh's and that was occasioned thanks to having business in the Shelton area about five years ago. This time, it was an opportunity to tour the Bloedel Reserve on Bainbridge Island yesterday afternoon, and then to drive another 75... More

Xinh's is temporarily open only Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. The food is better than ever and the service has improved so much over the years that we have been going here! This place could be moved to downtown Seattle and would soon be labeled the best in the city. Try the egg roll appetizer followed by whatever seafood you... More

Xinh herself was cooking tonight and I was lucky enough to be invited into the kitchen to give her my compliments on her cooking. Visiting from the East Coast was my excuse for not visiting the restaurant for two years. If you are a sushi lover, I suggest you ask for an off the menu order of geoduck (giant clam)... More

One advantage of living in Puget Sound is that you get to know seafood and shellfish -- what's fresh, what's good, what's well prepared. Add a discriminating palate and high standards in the chef, and the result could be something like Xinh's. Set in an unassuming storefront in downtown Shelton, Xinh's provides excellent Vietnamese-influenced cooking at reasonable prices. I had... More

I know that's saying a lot. But I've eaten a lot of seafood, and I live in an area where seafood-especially clams, oysters, shrimp, etc, come to the table so fresh that they're (almost) still kicking (if clams had legs). We KNOW what fresh shellfish tastes like. When you go to Xinh's, you find that Madame Xinh knows how to... More

When USA Today and Forbes take the time to gush over a small town restaurant its got to be decent. Shelton, a town of only 10,000, could not support an eatery of this caliber. People from all over Puget Sound and the Olympic Peninsula make a special effort to taste her exquisite preparations. At other restaurants you eat, at Xinhs... More
