Having just arrived in Xi'an checked out local recommendations and this one was very close. But being located in a maze of stalls, and not displaying its name prominently in Western script for we ignorant tourists, I walked past it several times before matching posted photos of the exterior. My walking was rewarded by a cheap and satisfying meal.

This is a great place to sample the Xian Hui Tribe Dumplings made with lamb fillings. The dumplings are freshly steamed as your order and they come really really steaming hot. Delicious. The restaurant is super efficient and fun to watch the waiters carrying stacks of bamboo steamers several feet high and maneuvering between tables! Prices are very reasonable.

I've had Shanghai Soup Dumplings from Din Tai Fung in Southern California. That's a really good standard for a soup dumpling. This place... meh... The dumplings come out flat, which is strange. Then they lack soup or flavor. It was disappointing. Nothing special at all. I don't recommend this place. But, if you find yourself in the Muslim Quarter (where... More

I was taken to eat here by my guide while in Xi'an to try the soup dumplings and they were excellent. I did not have any of the other food while there so I cannot comment that but the dumplings were great. I tried the beef and the lamb dumplings and loved them. Had seconds on the lamb. Would definitly... More

We tried all the different dumplings & they passed the kids test! Kids loved it! I thought they were pretty average but the other food we ordered were delicious. We ordered buckwheat noodles, fried rice and beef skewers. Be prepared for it to be spicy! We loved it!

We ordered dumplings and lamb leg. Dumplings were not good and they mixed up our order. My partner had order cold noodles and lamb and it was ok. The place itself is pretty cool though: metal tables in 3 long rows and they sited us next to another couple we shared a table with. Interesting Chinese experience after all.

If only the dumplings were as good as advertised. Not bad, but not up to what we'd been led to expect. However, I had the best eggplant dish of my life. Smothered in hot peppers, spicy and fantastic. Likewise with other dishes we tried. Spicy, left my lips tingling, but not so hot as to spoil the meal. If you... More

Surprised at the rave reviews for this place as the dumplings were disappointing - reminiscent of cold ravioli. Admittedly it was full of Chinese - tourists not locals - and the service was quick and it was cheap. We later went to the Shaanxi Canton Palace 5 minutes walk from the Sofitel, which is Cantonese food, where the dumplings were... More
