We have been eating at Xina now for about 5 years! We are only there in the summer! But we go there twice during a one week stay in Seaside Park! Amazing food, either at the bar or at the tables. Great selection of oysters for anyone to choose from. Awesome sushi rolls, and entrees.. It is BYOB, but they... More

Tuna Tartare, Oysters and amazing Signature Rolls were our choices. We arrived at 1:30 PM and were seated immediately...service was very good...he food divine. Be sure to bring your favorite wine; we chose a California Chardonnay. In sum, an exceptional dining experience.

We're locals and love coming to Xina! Awesome, super fresh sushi and fantastic oysters. The roll specials are awesome- highly recommend the coconut crab stick, only two complaints; the hostesses are rude and why do you need reservations if there are 10+ tables open? Highly recommend, but in off season.

Love this place. Make a reservation or order to go because they are always busy. Walnut shrimp and the Kobe beef are my favorites

Very good food, but loud. Acoustics are terrible. When the restaurant is full you have to tell across the table.

If you can get in you'll always have a great meal. Food quality excellent, atmosphere is calming and very pleasant. Love that it's a byob. Parking lot is large which is great cause they are always busy. If you call for take out you'll probably have to still wait for your order, but it is worth it.

My sister and I found on our last day at the shore. Must make a reservation and think ahead if looking for a weekend night. We shared the crab & coconut roll(special that night) and I had the walnut shrimp. The shrimp were huge and plentiful. My sister is a huge sushi fan and loved her rolls. After a few... More

What can I say. We have been coming here since it opened. It is always a superlative. You can never go wrong. Even the desserts are fabulous. Can't get better oysters anywhere and I mean anywhere they are just as good as every other bar that we have ever been through, from Maine to New York City to Florida to... More

When they are on, their fish quality is on par with the best in NYC or Long Island (though not in terms of variety or originality of presentation). When they are off, they're still much better than avg.
