We tried the one near the great goose pagoda and we were not disappointed! Menu in English with pictures for every dish helps a lot when you can't speak Chinese, plus one of the waiters could speak some English. Portions are massive indeed and we could not finish the four dishes we ordered between the two of us, but food... More

The place was crowded but we didn't have to wait a lot for a place in a shared table. Eating the 3-metters noodle is such an experience.

We went for dinner. The service was good, pretty clean and the food was very good. We ordered the classic noodles, 3 mts long with beef, were very good, also we had an egg soup and dumplings that were good. Portions are huge, so be prepared to share. Not expensive, good price-quality value.

A little above a average restaurant, nothing special if you've eaten at a fair amount of Chinese restaurants. Biangbiang noodles were pretty good, and the sweet and sour pork is always a hit with other foreigners, but not any better than most places. If you're nearby it's worth a visit, but don't bother crossing the city for it as there... More

Excellent dinner after the water show at the goose pagoda. We ate spinach noodles, belt noodles (must try) and dumplings. Plenty of food, good portion size and very tasty. Dumplings came with nice chilli sauce. Good value for money, efficient service and photo menu. Very helpful in showing westerners how to eat noodles! Only nag is you have to pay... More

This visit to the Big Goose Pagoda North plaza was an experience. Our helpful waitress spoke English. The portions were huge so we cancelled a dish when we saw the size and we still took some away neatly wrapped. Recommend the sweet and sour pork and the pork filled round flat breads but also the omelet in a wafer thin... More

There is more than one location and this review is for the one on Xiaozhai E Road. It was easy to find just east of the Big Goose Pagoda North plaza. It was a little difficult to communicate with the staff because no one spoke English, however the menu has pictures and a brief and literal translation to english, so... More

The time we visited this restaurant, the place was packed, but not a single local was in the place. In just about any place, regardless of which country, the absence of locals is always a bad sign ... in this case, the that proves to be the case too, as the noodles here are bland and fliury, the broth watery,...

Fare Chinese meal for someone who is not used to Chinese food. Noodles are appreciated all around the round, the way of making them changes, and Xi'an is applauded for this specialty. I have to admit, beside street noodles, this place might be one of the best I have ever tested. Very delicate in taste, subtile flavors. Cosi and interesting... More
