Pleasantly surprised.... For me Tamarine has lost it's luster so I have been looking for an alternative to Three Seasons (which I still enjoy) and noticed Xanh as I was driving by. The rolls are good, I especially like the Xanh salad as well as the Rice Crepes (great idea!). If you enjoy asian fusion definitely check this place out. The service does need a little work but presentation, portions and price are worth it. If they keep it up they will definitely give Tamarine a run for it's money!
User review by jennyvalencia. Xanh restaurant has been open for about 1 month and a half now and Ive gone there 6 times and at every time its been a great experience. The food is excellent and presentation is amazing. Every time I go there with my husband and friends I always eat their xanh salad, crispy shrimp clouds, fighting prawns, and shaking beef. By the way, the crispy shrimp clouds take a while to make but worth the wait. I must admitthey do get crowded. However, the food and service is great.
If you like cold food and slow service... then, you should try this place. I had 4 different servers approach me in my whole meal, making the consistency for my requests quite confusing and timely. ALL but one of my five main dishes I ordered came out cold. When I approached the waiter about the tofu dish that came out cold, he suggested "would you like me to take it in the back and zap it?" At that point, I said, "please just remove it from my table. I don't know about you, but I prefer my dinner above tepid." He proceeded to leave and not address my concerns. The only thing I would come back for are the rolls. I was very disappointed at the lack of creativity and originality. If you do go to Xanh, don't expect a great fusion experience like Tamarine, Le Colonial or Three Seasons, but just another surbuban knock-off.
Everything was outstanding!. I recently had the privilege of dining at Xanh and it far exceeded my expectations! The food, the ambiance and the service were all outstanding. Xanh offers the best food that I have had in the Bay Area in a long time (and I tend to be quite difficult to please!) We shared several of the entrees (including the fighting prawns, shaking beef and tamarind prawns), garlic noodles, the traditional roll, spicy tuna roll and tuna tartare--each dish was truly unique and remarkable. It is rare to order so many entrees and have each new dish test as great as the previous dish--what a culinary treat! I would highly recommend Xanh and plan to return again and again...The prices and attentive service (so rare these days) were also great!
if you like asian fusion.... for fans of three seasons and tamarind (in PA), i would highly recommend this hip and fun, not to mention very delicious, new restaurant. the portions are just right for the prices. if you don't know what to order, try the grapefruit salad, crispy shrimp clouds, xanh full moon wraps, the steamed sea bass, and the hazelnut mousse for dessert!
THE BEST ASIAN FUSION EXPERIENCE!!. When you first walk in you are greeted with a friendly smile and seated promptly. The atmosphere and the music just sets the mood for fun experience eating at the restaurant. The vivid colors, water display, and lavish visual presentation of the food is EXCELLENT! Again, not only is the presentation astounding the food is remarkable. The food is fresh; it gives a new meaning to the word zesty, and burst in your mouth flavor. The food is something you will never try again it is a one of a kind Vietnamese restaurant. The restaurant is small but very intimate. See be sure to make your reservations in advanced. It has just opened and I have been there more that 3 times. The dishes I recommend are: Xanh Full Moon Wraps, Pineapple Short Ribs, Mellow Yellow Noodles, Ahi Tuna Tarte, Garlic Noodles, and lastly the Xanh Tamarind Jumbo Prawns.
Great food and fun. This is such a trendy and fun restaurant. The food was excellent. I highly recommend this place.
