But we did I it.... omg this place has the atmosphere, the service and more importantly the food. Out hugely fussy eater was happy with the... More

My wife and I had dinner here as it was close to our hotel. We had the 3 course starter menu which had on paper a reasonable selection of Asian food. The starters were OK however the main course was cold and rather bland. The dessert was not much better. All in all a disappointing meal. Would not consider eating... More

Excellent local flavors, we ordered the 5 course meal with flow of drinks due to the combination of northern and southern Vietnamese food which resulted in a very interesting experience. The harmonious mix of spices really encouraged and expanded my taste for Vietnamese cuisine.

The restaurant styling was elegant. We had the five course meal and it didn't fail to deliver an exceptional quality food. Service was great and staff were friendly and courteous.

We had a wonderful meal here. Great fusion food. Vietnamese with a twist. Only time I've come across lamb whilst here! Delicious dipping sauces and other Vietnamese staples incorporated with other cuisine. Thoroughly recommend but only if you are happy to pay over the odds - well by Vietnamese if not European standards anyway!

This is the number one restaurant I found so far here in Saigon. Food is Vietnamese but in a gastronomy cuisine key. Wines are too expensive, but the rest is very accessible. Sea bass and duck dishes were taste and water melon juice very refreshing

We were recomended this restaurant and looking at the reviews i was rather excited to eat there. The abiance and service are very nice. However, whilst the concept of the menu is innovative , the presentation very nice. its extremely overpriced for Vietnam. We paid 300 euro for 4 of us ( 2 only drank water ) when i think... More

Me and my girlfriend have been to the bar part of this place on many different occasions: let it be entertainment, dinner, after work socialization, etc. Xu Bar has never let us down. What we love the most is the right mindset of the entire staff: from the managers to the doorman, from the cleaning lady to the waiters. We... More

An excellent spot for dinner. The food is well presented and tasty. The Sea Bass and beef were particular highlights. The portions are of a good size and the service is attentive without being overbearing. It's not the cheapest place to eat in HCM, but it is definitely worth checking out - budget permitting.

Went there for dinner and drinks. Can't recommend this place enough. You'd be stupid to miss it. Some of the best food I've had. Service was incredible. But the best thing were the martinis. Could drink them all day long. Gave us free cake for my friends bday. Will be going back when I'm in HCM next. Might be slightly... More
