We were blown away by the food as well as the service at this bustling restaurant/lounge! Make sure and ask for the Dragon's Breath finale...it was definitely worth it!

Decent restaurant in Ho Chi Minh city. Clean with good food and lots of tourists were eating there so guides take tourists to eat here which means it must have good food preparation standards (I hope).

We were a group of 10 people for dinner. First rate service with food that was delicious. Very interesting and unusual selections, and each course was terrific.

I had expectations for this place and while we enjoyed the visit a lot, we left with the feeling that we actually overpaid for what it was. The food is tasty (we loved the squid!) and the stuff is attentive but you expect much more spark from a tasting menu of 7 courses, less of semi boiled carrots and mashed... More

Awesome culinary start into the new year! We spent our New Year's Eve at Xu and it went great. Service was outstanding, a bit delayed a couples of times, but completely understandable as the place was full. Food was fantastic! Including the vegetarian's and kid's menu.

We had such a beautiful evening at Xu. We settled on the 5 course tasting menu. The food was exquisite and is very much "modern Vietnamese" - the food is influenced by the old but done in a modern way. The staff were very accommodating to dietary requirements by varying the set menu. They were also very attentive and professional... More

We spent the end of the year in Saigon and was hard to find a location for NYE since we had never been there nor did we know anybody who had. We found XU online and didn't know what to expect. We were positively surprised. The food was DELICIOUS and the service friendly and just perfect! Definitely recommend to go... More

We visited this restaurant with our tour group on our first night in HCMC. It didn't look great from the outside, and the downstairs is a fairly dark, smoky bar with a young clientele. We were taken upstairs to the restaurant and treated to the tasting menu. The food was excellent and consisted of three courses, with three tasting size... More

This is a rather trendy restaurant serving delicious food, typical of Vietnam. It is presented in a modern version of traditional food. Downstairs, you can have a drink. Why they are allowed to smoke is beyond me.
