We dined here and opted for the set menu's which come with 4/5/7 course options. Specifically, we opted for the 4 course which takes food from the different regions and the 7 course. Comparing the 2, it seemed to us that the 4 course represented better value. The food was enjoyable enough, but the portions are not very big and... More

The restaurant is pretty elegant, and the service is great, however the food is average. Locals say it is one of the best restaurant in town but I disagree, maybe it used to be. Having saying that I would recommend the place for a romantic night out as the place feels a luxury environment. Also, the good thing is that... More

Sunday lunch, good old tripadvisor with their 'restaurants near me' search criteria. We had a lovely lunch here. There was only one other table with people in the place, unfortunately they were all smoking. Something that takes a bit of getting used to. We had beef luc lac and honey chicken. Tasty food at a decent price. Once again however,... More

Downstairs there's casual dining with music. It was a younger, hip crowd. Upstairs is a beautiful dining room. The service was very good. The food was excellent. Our group shared several appetizers and entrees, all delicious. Located in District 1 on a very vibrant, happening street. Definitely visit when in Saigon.

We had dinner at this elegant restaurant and we were not disappointed! Very friendly and pampering staff. I recommend to take a 5 course menu with free flowing drinks. You will feel in heaven! 100% recommendation

Strongly suggest one of the tasting menus. Relatively inexpensive and you get a good flavor of Vietnamese food. Decent wine list but beer is the way to go in this city. was is often the case in Southeast Asia, the service is adequate, not great.

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at the Xu Restaurant during our visit to Ho Chi Minh City. Our group had a special menu selected by Luke Nguyen, which was superb. The food didn't disappoint. The first floor dining area was good for groups, and the decor was modern. The staff were efficient and friendly.

came and got a set lunch plus a couple of dishes a la carte. The chef was clearly trying for two things - traditional Vietnamese dishes with more premium ingredients, and "Western"-looking dishes with local ingredients and flavors. The end result was a pretty tasty meal. We should have come for dinner to try one of the longer tasting menus,... More

Excellent menu, either fixed four, five and seven course set meals or sharing, tapas like, menu. We chose the tapas approach and had an excellent meal with ample sized dishes for sharing. Staff was very patient at explaining the menu and service was very efficient. The lounge downstairs (restaurant is upstairs) was hopping and seemed to have a very lively... More
