Had several apps and rolls and everything was excellent. Paired well with a bottle of NJ sparkling Chardonnay from their small wine list (I think it's really a BYOB place). I imagine this place is really hard to get into during peak season, but we only waited about 10 minutes for 2 seats at the bar.

You know a place is outstanding when you can't just pop in whenever you like....you always have to make a reservation for dinner because they are always packed! And that's unusual for a BYOB on our area. The food is inventive, fresh and delicious. I couldn't even tell you a favorite item, because we love so many.

This place can not handle the crowds. The staff run around like crazy, but there seems to be no good systems in place by management. This is definitely the best place that I can find in the area. It is slim pickings. We enjoyed the food and will go back. Would recommend the spicy crab salad and out of control... More

My party had 10 guest that was accommodated nicely but it very hard to have conversations. It was very loud in there... More

The sushi is really fantastic. I had the coconut shrimp roll and a shrimp tempura roll. We shared the pineapple fried rice as the appetizer. All the food was great. They were able to accommodate for my friend that needs to be gluten free. We made a reservation and we did get there on time, but we still waited about... More

Best Sushi and Japanese Restaurant in Ocean County. Sit at the bar or grab a table. It's a BYOB and they supply you with the glasses you need for your particular beverage. Nice views of the Barnaget Bay if you sit by a window. Owners and staff are always pleasant and accommodating. Great Appetizers, the Sushi is great and so... More

Nice, clean restaurant. Server was very friendly and knowledgeable of the Menu. Was their with a big group and everyone in our party enjoyed their meal. We ordered a lot from the sushi, soups, chicken dishes, apps. Everything was good. Definitely need to make a restaurant if going with a number of people. Would return if in the area.

My husband and I both eat in and get takeout sushi from Xina. I have not found any other local sushi establishment that has such fresh seafood. The pineapple fried rice is also a must try. Xina is not only an excellent place to eat but the cleanliness goes above and beyond. The only drawback is that it tends to... More
