If you like fish like I do..you would love to have it at Xu.
the sour soup was excellent to savour other dishes.
cooking Vienamese food is simple, selling it is not easy, since we have it everyday , we always compare the dishes from restuarants to restaurants, especially we compare it with what Mom or Grand Mom cooked for us. but Xu passes it.

While I don't profess to being an expert on Vietnamese food I am definitely a foodie who loves good food. I had the 5 course taster meal which was excellent, the service was spot on and the restaurant and ambience were great. However, for 1,000,000D +10%+5% it just wasn't worth it. For free flow drinks it would have cost 1.9 million ++ and to make it cheaper than ordering drinks separately I would have had to have drunk more than a bottle of wine. I have been on holiday in Vietnam for a week now and in that time have eaten amazing food - street food, cheap cafés and restaurants. This meal was 10 times the cost of some meals I've had which were equally as good so if you put a lot of importance on service and surroundings then you might feel this was worth it but I do not.

Dear Alison,

Thank you for your review on Xu Restaurant and Lounge. We hope you enjoyed Vietnam as a tourist destination.

At Xu, we aims to deliver a modern Vietnamese fine dinning experience to customers, which incorporates attentive customer service, complementary atmosphere and premium quality ingredients. The tasting menu you chose includes 4 types of entrée, 4 types of mains and 4 desserts, separated into 5 courses. The dishes come from all different regions of Vietnam combined to give a unique dinning experience. Our commitment to delivering multiple dishes and desserts with premium ingredients and customer service results in higher prices, which is unavoidable but try out best to give customers value for their money.

Best Regards,
Xu Restaurant and Lounge

Absolutely incredible. Service was impeccable and the food is unreal. The crab on rice cracker is a must have and the skewered sea bass was delicious! A little pricey for Saigon but worth it!

Our first destination for the trip, was HCMC and by chance a friend recommended us to Xu restaurant. We had dinner there before heading to Cambodia. We chose the seven course tasting menu with free flow package, with wine and cocktails included. It was lovely evening with Vietnamese dishes elegantly presented, and then the dessert plate. I loved the cocktail with kumquat fruit. The staff was helpful and friendly. It was a very great choice.
