We were looking for a great place for the last stop in Vietnam and definitely found it here! Amazing food and impeccable service. This really was a lovely treat. Pricier than most but completely worth it! Highly recommend going :)

We loved this place! We were gifted with a 3 course meal upstairs by our travel agency due to a mix up with our guide. We had the best wine we had in Asia and three courses of delicious set menu food. Each course contained 3 or 4 different "tapas" or small combinations. We opted for vegetarian only and really...

We went immediately upstairs to eat, vibrant and noisy music downstairs. Good range of food and drink, reasonably priced, service friendly and well timed.

This restaurant is above a very lively bar, so a great all-night venue if you like to be in the heart of the action. Having said that, you can dine comfortably, with the noise vibe giving the place atmosphere but not preventing conversation. The service is very good. We shied away from the set menus, but had a superb meal... More

Had the 3 course set menu. Presentation was very nice and delicate. For the meal itself, the meats could be more refined. But the flavours were good. Perfect location for dinner upstairs and drinks downstairs. Location is also very good. Cheers!

We ate free here as part of a tour so had no control over our menu and I have no idea of the cost but this was one of the best, if not the best meals I have ever had. From starter to dessert everything was perfect.. The drink is not cheap but even the cocktails we chose were as... More

We attended Xu Restaurant as part of an APT Cruise. The restaurant and the food were quite amazing. The food was extremely fresh and beautifully plated. Prices for drinks are, however, quite high compared to other restaurants- even the hotels. However, they also serve a special 'dragon breath' dessert- wafers frozen in liquid nitrogen. When placed in the mouth they... More
