We walked to this location of Xi'an from our hotel. It was busy on a Thursday night but there was a spot to perch and eat our amazing noodles! The turnover is fast here. I had the spicy curried lamb noodles in soup, and my husband had the plate and we both LOVED it. Good flavor, good burn and amazing... More

Typical authentic street food type of place you'd find in China. They cooks are using formulas so the food misses just a bit. Would definitely go back for quick, Chinese meal on the run.

The place was very busy, very popular. We came here for a late dinner, around 8 PM. We were lucky that some seats opened up along a stainless steel counter against a brick wall. The noodles were being made right there. Some items were sold out, but there was plenty to choose from. I had the noodles with oxtails. Well... More

You may not find a seat and the plastic fork and/or knife doesn't do much help but those noodles which are handmade and delicious make the trip here all worthwhile. Whether they come in regular noodle form or as dumplings, the dough (is that the right word?) is unparalleled and it will have you rethinking what true noodles are afterwards.... More

Had seen & heard about this place for their incredible noodle dishes & they sure didn't disappoint!!! Was a late lunch but place was still packed but didn't have to wait long for a table. Cheap feed, good quality & most importantly super tasty!!! Would go back for next time in NYC.

Very cheap street food place, good taste, but the toilet really scared me. Hold yourselves until you finish your food and find a Starbucks or something similar.

This is really excellent Chinese food! There isn't much "elbow room", but the family style seating adds to the experience. The Spicy Lamb Dumplings are out of this world!

Had to check this out after all the raving reviews and pics on Instagram! I was staying at a hotel right on 45th so this was like a dream come true! There was a long queue but I had to wait it out. Fortunately it moved really fast. Lots of noodle options but it was warm so I chose a... More

Xi'an food is very much different from Chinese food normally available in other Chinese restaurants outside China, the later ones mostly serve Cantonese, Hokkien, Beijing, Shanghai style or even the famous spicy Sichuan cuisines. Street food in Xi'an is very much influenced by Muslim style street food. Xi'an Famous Foods serves some of the Xian food, but mainly based on... More

Good quality for a reasonable price! The menu is small but has a wide variety of noodle choices. The place is quite small to eat there, but most of the people takes out or asks for delivery.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
