Go For The Food, The Service Will Keep You Coming Back – Had a dinner party for 20 in the 186 Room. The food has great presentation and flavor (my table included the calamari small plate, the shrimp crepes, the vegetarian tofu, Mellow Yellow Noodles and the duck), but the real secret is the service! Stephanie and Linda hosted the room with style and professionalism! They were very personable and attentive, learned everyone in the room quickly and executed flawlessly! Serious Kudos!
Very good, non traditional Vietnam,ese – The ambiance in the new location is great. there is a lounge/bar area and various dining rooms that can accomodate large groups and parties. The food is great.
Creative menu, great service and wonderful food. – We have eaten hear for lunch and dinner. Weekends and weeknights and it is always great. Friends who we have introduced to Xanh have loved it and all have gone again.
I won't stop until I have tried Everything on the menu – I don't do this often, but every blue moon and good restaurant, I just have to get everything on the menu, just once. Well I am half way through and still delighted with the food!
Everything has been great so far. Most of the things that were just ok, well I am not a fan of anyway. Like tofu.
Fun place to go for a date or just to hang out with friends and share a meal. Met the owner and she was pretty nice.
Just Plain Outstanding! – Wow, where to begin. Excellent service, very clean, inviting environment, good prices, and best of all, the food was amazing! I had my doubts when I first walked in, a little concerned about the service when I saw the restaurant had every table filled. But I was wrong. My boyfriend and I LOVED everything we ate. Garlic shrimp noodles, the shrimp/pork spring roll, the shaky beef, the moon wraps, and the sea bass. Talk about oustanding! Come here if you want to have a good time with outstanding food!
Modern, but pretentious – Took my parents to Xanh on a Sat night to try for the first time. We liked that the menu offered traditional Viet dishes (my parents are traditional Vietnamese folks) but didn't think the subtle "twists" on the dishes, coupled w/ the small portions, justified the high prices. Our favorite dish, ironically, was the raw ahi tuna served in a martini glass w/ a quacamole-like concoction-- not a traditional Viet dish, BTW (maybe spanish inspired?). Overall, we thought the restaurant was too pretentious for our taste and I can't help but get the feeling that this was a modern American restaurant that happens to be serving Viet food. The decor and environment are more suggestive of an American dining experience. I'd like to come back for drinks w/ friends, though... seems like a good environment for that.
Editorial Review – Blue phosphorescent space serves Vietnamese fusion cuisine. Entrees include shrimp rice crepes, pineapple short ribs and clay pot catfish.
Excellent Restaurant! – The service was perfect. The kobe roll appetizer was exquisite. Such a nice change for Mountain View. Finally, an excellent restaurant. The Xanh Salad was delicious and full of flavor, and fun to eat!! As a main dish which we split for two people we had the Shaking beef (filet mignon) was so tender! Went very well with our white rice. The food was NOT cold at all, it came out nice and HOT. Didn't wait long for our dinner. Staff was very attentive and friendly. And the price was just right. Worth every penny.
XANH a Hip, Unique Dining Experience – In the Bay Area where Asian Fusion restaurants are abundant, one place stands out XANH, where the food and service is exceptional. Weve dined at XANH numerous times. The attentive staff caters to your every need. Particularly rare in restaurants, but a practice at XANH is that other staff would stop by to refill your glass, take your plate, etc.
We have tried almost everything. The food is phenomenal! Top favorites: the shaking beef (it actually melts in your mouth!), ahi tuna tartare, steamed sea bass, and banana flower salad. Save room for dessert. The hazelnut mousse and chocolate box rate an A+. Top those off with a cup of Vietnamese coffee and life is good.
The ambience encourages patrons to talk to one another great food makes for a good conversation starter. If you're looking for a hip place and a unique dining experience, stop by XANH.
Don't miss this restaurant's innovative menu – I've never had food quite like the items served up at Xanh restaurant in Mountain View. Once we were seated, our server arrived quickly and took our drink and food orders. Before I knew it, the first appetizer came - the deuce roll. This was a springroll type appetizer with shrimp and pork rolled up in rice paper with a flavorful peanut sauce. These rolls are a highlight of the menu. Be sure to order one even if you don't typically order appetizers. My main course was the garlic noodles with prawns. The prawns were large and full of flavor and the noodles were cooked just right. We also ordered the coconut rice, which was stickier and more coconut-y (down to being sprinkled with tiny coconut flakes). It was fabulous!
