“Best Sushi In The Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

This is my new favorite restaurant.

Hands down the best sushi in the area. The sushi was fresh and delicious, I felt like they had something for even the pickiest of eaters. I would highly suggest making reservations since this place is always packed. Great atmoshphere, huge sushi bar, service was a little slow but since the place was slammed I overlooked it. I also love the fact that you can get brown rice instead of white in your rolls for an additional cost while most other sushi places in the area don't offer that. I'm looking forward to returning in the very near future (like this weekend lol)

“Best sushi around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Xina is bar-none my new favorite restaurant in the Toms River area. We ate here for the first time in November and have been back close to 10 times. I was hesitant to go at first because every restaurant in that spot had been a dud, but Xina is sure to stick around. My fiance never even liked sushi, but now he's always looking for an excuse to go to Xina! Every single specialty roll is delectable, but its hard to try new things when you LOVE everything you ate on your previous visit. We were out with some friends recently and got to talking about Xina and the bartender chimed in about how much he loves Xina... that's how good it is!

“Treat Yourself!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

Xina is amazing. The staff are all so friendly and accommodating. The food is absolutely excellent and so reasonably priced. If you enjoy sushi you will be addicted to this place, so fresh and definitely prepared well. The filet mignon you cook on a lava rock is really fun, it's a good distraction for kids! I always recommend this place to people, and will continue to do so.

“A cold night in February”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

We had a lovely meal. I hadn't eaten Kung Pow Chicken in years. It was better than I remembered. The vegetables were fresh and crisp, and the chicken cooked to juicy goodness. It was a warm and inviting place to spend a very cold evening.

“Great sushi!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

First you need to make a reservation because the restaurant was packed on a Thursday night! It was a bit noisy but the food was amazing! The tuna tartare was so fresh. The Sea Bass roll was delicious as was the Red Lobster roll. Will definitely be returning!
