Xage is such a fabulous little restaurant, right in the heart of busy Surry Hills. Despite its size, i think it is a great venue for group bookings because the varieties of banquets cater, not only for varying tastes but varying appetites! However if your booking ahead be wary of numbers because if you turn up short they will make you pay for the missing people!
That being said, it is very reasonably priced, with BYO costing a meagre $2 per person, and the food itself is very fresh, healthy and most importantly delicious!
It can be very noisy and sometimes hard to turn up and get a spot, but they turn over tables quite quickly so you will not need to wait very long to be seated.
If you love Vietnamese this place is great, highly recommend the rice paper rolls and slow cooked pork shoulder, fabulously tasty!
