I had never had vietnamese food before and was somewhat confused about what to order but everything I tried was really good. I had a spring roll and the vietnamese bbq sandwich. The veggies were crisp and fresh and the staff was very nice

I had been craving for Vietnamese food and stumbled upon this place while walking to Schnucks. I ordered a vermicelli bowl to-go which was supposed to have grilled pork, vegetarian egg roll, veggies, and fish sauce. When I arrived home, they only gave me vermicelli with grilled pork and some veggies. The egg roll and fish sauce were missing. I... More

What excited us about this place was they had a number of dishes that we hadn't tried before. Deep fried hard boiled eggs with a sweet spicy tamarind sauce sounded particularly interesting. The order came with 2 eggs one of which was very good the other so rubbery that it was off putting and we didn't finish. one egg ****,... More

Well known for Pho Tai Nam, the Shrimp Cake Summer Rolls make a great quick lunch. Also the Special Combo Banh Mi sandwiche is great.

This is a small Vietnamese restaurant featuring pho, bun, and banh mi sandwiches. I've patronized many and this one is what you'd expect of a good restaurant. I had the Bun Thit Nuong (pork pieces) lunch for $8.00. Very good and consistent with others. Pork was slightly more "done " than needed but good and the fish dipping sauce was... More

Love the Taro slush with boba here. Really good tofu pho. Pho Tai, pho combo or chicken pad Thai are my husbands favorite here. The chicken pad Thai isn't on the menu but is on the specials board up front. Highly recommend. The fried spring rolls are Excellent, comes with always super fresh veggies and the fish sauce here is... More

Champaign-Urbana has a great Asian food scene. From sushi, to Korean BBQ, to Thai curry. The are so many great places to go. But Xinh Xinh is our favorite in our neighborhood. The pho is great and they have vegetarian broth options some weekends. The sandwiches are always high quality and we always come back wanting more. The service is... More

This is a very good place to go for pho and noodle bowl if you are tired of meat and American food. they have specials on Monday and Wendesday. The food is Good and the price is low, especially if you go there when there are specials.

Went on Wednesday night when they have Pho for $5/bowl. I had pho #4 (round steak and brisket) and pho #1 (combination - round, flank, brisket, tendon, tripe and meatballs). The broth and the noodles were very good. The meat dragged it down to a 4 rating. Meat suffered from both a lack of quantity and quality. Had I paid... More

Xinh Xinh Cafe is known as *the* place for pho in Champaign-Urbana, and that reputation is well deserved. We've visited several times over the last two years and had almost every menu item. Every pho we've tried is absolutely excellent. Indeed, it is still good after travel time if you choose carry-out. But I recommend eating in. The decor is... More
