Great selection of Vietnamese classics and new dishes. Really enjoyed the poor bellies and the 3 different spring rolls. The spring rolls were the best I had while in Vietnam. The down stairs lounge was quite lively

Our hotel recommended this place and it was terrific. We were there during TET, so the place was kind of quiet, but Mr Sang (our waiter) took great care of us, and helped us order. Dinner included a tuna dish, chili prawns, spicy fried rice,...pumkin flowers, two chicken dishes and vegetarian wontons. All delicious.More

We had a very pleasant meal at Xu restaurant. Sitting amidst a host of other western holiday makers was not really our thing however the food was very tasty, small portions more on the nouveau cuisine level. We found it a little on the pretentious...and pricy side. It was a £60 meal which was double the price of most evening meals out for us. It was a modern fine dining ambiance really. It was lovely. A safe bet in a busy bustling city.More

Very nice food and great service. We chose a set menu and every dish came fairly quickly and the presentation was very beautiful. We found the food very tasty. The staff was really nice also. The thing I did not like was the bar downstairs...because it smelled like cigarettesMore

We went here for dinner and tried their 4-course tasting menu. Everything was very delicious, and the service excellent. The restaurant also has a nice ambiance with good interior decoration and some soft jazz music in the background. Highly recommended!More

Tried the 5 course tasting menu and it was amazing. Lucky enough to discover this place at the weekend so although it was a little bit businer than a week day it meant that when we went again during the following week, we were able...to try a diffferent tasting menu as they change them weekly. Both experiences were amazing ans everybody enjoyed it. It was also very well priced for the quality of the food that we got. I i go back to Vietnam I will 100% be going again!!More

The restaurant is located above their bar/lounge. I was a bit put off at first by the modernist decor but was quickly won over by the food & staff. The staff works as a team, and everyone was helpful, friendly and courteous. And the food...was terrific! They have a number of set meal options, but my wife & I chose off the a la carte menu and were not disappointed with anything . We shared beef on skewers with lemongrass, mixed soft spring rolls (beef, pork& shrimp, each with a different tasty sauce), steamed veggie buns, sesame tuna, and sea bass skewers. Each was wonderful. They also have a very nice wine list for HCM City. And to top it off, they have small bite desserts so you can try a number of their interesting selections. What a great, and fun, dinner!More

Sorry, I did not see any private dining areas when we were there. We were part of a group of 100 or so people.
