Loved the vibe of Xu's lounge bar. The mixologist is excellent. We started out with shots of Bloody Mary with oysters - which were so good that we popped in for a few shots two days later while we were on our way to lunch elsewhere. Five of us tried different cocktails and were suitably impressed with everything we tried. We left the food ordering largely to recommendations, so I missed out on names, but it was all VERY GOOD. What deserves a special mention is a soup that was a variation of Pho from a different province in Vietnam - tried hard to hold on to that name but lost it along the way.

The dessert spoons were divine. Worked very well because initially everyone said they had eaten too much and would like to avoid dessert but the arrival of bite sized portions changed all that. Works very well for the undecided (read Me) who struggle with having made the best choice while pretending to limit calories.

Lovely restaurant with excellent food. Catered to my vegetarian diet without any problems. Well priced for the atmosphere, quality and service.

As a frequent visitor to Vietnam this was our first time dining at Xu and we were not disappointed...best meal we have eaten in HCMC!! The food was delicious, especially the chicken rice, the wine was wonderful and we could not fault the service as the staff were very attentive and professional. Can't wait to go back!

We were a large group who went for a tasting menu. Downstairs there's a young buzzy bar, upstairs the restaurant. Its very cool and very professional, the service is superb.
The food is impressive. The presentation superb. This is a place where you can't go wrong.

Visited with friends recently and experience the 7 course degustation. Was not disappointed with the food and the "free flowing" wine and sparkling package. Staff and service first class.
