Super good. And many of the menu can be prepared gluten free which is great!
Didn't look into this spot too much before coming but am glad we tried it. I loved my chashu noodle soup! My friends got pho and were also given a generous plate with all the bean sprouts, cilantro, limes etc. I ordered the iced lychee tea and really liked that too -- not too sweet but also not bitter, overall good flavor. There's street parking nearby and the food came out pretty quickly!
Our favorite thing to order here are the Buddha Rolls, I also love the pumpkin curry with tofu. They offer excellent house cocktails and water fresh from the coconut. Beautiful restaurant.
I simply love this place! So friendly and welcoming, and the food is always top notch. Love the Basil Eggplant and Tofu, Chicken Curry, and Combination Stir Fry. However, top of my list are the Coconut Prawns served in a tender coconut. This has been the go-to place for our family gatherings and date nights for years. Friendly staff, terrific ambience and fun cocktails.
Love this place! Everything is so good and their drinks are bomb..lately I've been eating her like once a week .crispy shrimp rolls are my favorite. Wish they accepted Apple Pay
Everything I have ever had from Xyclo I have loved! I work across the street and have to control myself from eating it for lunch every single day. Today I tried the Banh Mi sandwich and it was absolutely delicious! They use crispy baguette and the vegetarian inside is truly divine!
Popped in here because of a pho craving last week and was *incredibly satisfied* We started with the Buddha rolls and then split a bowl of Beef Pho, Lemongrass Basil Chicken, and the Garlic Herb Noodles. Everything was absolutely delicious, portions were awesome, and the service was lovely! I absolutely need to call out these Garlic Herb Noodles. Truly like nothing I've tasted before! 10/10 get these as a side to whatever you are ordering! Probably my favorite part of our meal. We'll be back!
I have been a regular at this restaurant for the past 6-7 years. I have tried pretty much everything on their menu and it's all incredible. My absolute favorites are sugarcane shrimp roll (I get it every time), coconut prawns (I ask for the prawns de shelled), chicken pho, and the garlic noodles (side dish). The food is consistently amazing. It's always ready on time. The customer service is top notch and it's locally owned. Can't wait to grab some take out tonight!!
GO HERE NOW ITS AMAZING YUMMY FOOD GOOD SERVICE!!!!!????
I work nearby at the hospital and my work group & I tend to frequent this spot at least once every 2 weeks or so, typical orders can close in on $100 give or take. In the past, the food and service has been great. Well, we went this past Friday and the quality of food wasn't up to par. We love their Banh Mi selections as these are easy at-work lunches for us. We ordered about 8 sandwiches, some grilled pork and some grilled chicken as well as 1 order of chicken soup (which was to intended to be a coworker's dinner). One of the pork sandwiches had a chicken bone in it. The grilled pork and grilled chicken sandwiches were found to also have rotisserie chicken in it. After a call, we were informed the mom (who is the cook I suppose?) likes to put rotisserie chicken in all the meat sandwiches, regardless of meat selection. Although we did get a 'sorry about the meat combos, it didn't sit well. Also the chicken soup was found to have 2 hairs in it making it unconsumable. This fact that all Banh Mi sandwiches (except for the veggie) will have rotisserie chicken as a filler regardless of meat selection should be disclosed somewhere/somehow. The hairs in the soup, not really a solution other than cleanliness in the kitchen. This is one of the main reasons kitchen workers must have their hair tied up and preferably wear a hair net (not sure if the staff here does or not as they are out of view of customers). Sadly we are not willing to patronize this restaurant anymore after this experience.
Some of the best fusion food in town! Love their rolls and their ribs especially.
Pho with beef brisket.
ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!!! This is the first time I order from Xyclo. The name caught my attention and the fusion style drew me in. I ordered several things from the menu which were all delicious but the dish that stole the show were the coconut shrimp. I will say, they were not what I expected (I also didn't read the description in the menu). I expected toasted/fried coconut shrimp but what I got was even better. It was a coconut curry but with so much depth and flavor and came in a coconut with rice. By far, one of the best dishes I have had in a while. Their mocktails are also quite refreshing so I take it their cocktails may be up to par or even better. Will definitely be coming again.
Great Bha MI sandwich. A bit pricy but still amazing.
One of my all time favorites in Oakland/Berkeley. The food is consistently excellent. During the pandemic, they have take out. During normal times, the dining room is really pleasant. And they have really good cocktails!
