Situated on a very popular street, this place was filled with locals (or, at least, Chinese). The menu exists in English and has pictures. The food was okay.

This dumpling place is incredibly famous among tourists, who have to line up to eat there. A few celebrity have been there, this is part of the reason. The dumpling skin is super thin, and within there is hot broth.The taste is terrible though. Their porridge is good. Almost no service to talk about for this resto.

We had the "Ba Bao Zhou", 8 treasury porridge, which is a hot dessert made with rice and 8 types of ingredients like water chestnut, gingko... More

Based on TripAdvisor recommendations, we went for dinner here. Ordered dumplings and vegetables. Both were lacking in flavor and not interesting. Not sure why it is highly recommended. The interior is hot and not very pleasant. Wish we had gone almost anywhere else.

I tasted just the Xi'an dampling and they were great: very thin pasta and strong meat flavor inside. I did not like then the fat spicy beef also because the english translation on the menu ismwrong (it is not written that it is fat!). The restaurant is in the central street of muslim quartier, just behing the drum tower.

Atmosphere of a prison canteen and food to match. We had beef soup dumplings, twice, as they got our order for the second item wrong. Gelatinous, gluey packages that burst on impact with your chopsticks, so soup was left mostly in the steamer. Not recommended.

On our last day in China we've planned to eat dinner at a nice and elegant restaurant, but the food was here just so delicious (and cheap), so we've ordered one more plate of veg. dumplings (I'm not sure if it was mixed with some chicken) and cold sesam noodles, and spent our last night there. The first and the... More

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.
