Lovely Frappuchinos

Added a pit stop here when heading home from Moslem street and it was absolutely lovely. As always, great Frappuchinos! The staff was fast and efficient and they spoke English. The place was a bit crowded as it was afternoon but we managed to get a clean table. Perfect place for a pit stop... read more

Having been a Starbucks lover for many years, I was really surprised and disappointed to find out they will not give you small change to use public transport unless you pay for an overpriced coffee. Starbucks, you might not care much, but you lost a lifetime customer.

I wouldn't normally review a Starbucks but when you're a long way from home occasionally you need a break from the exotic and a toilet you can sit on. This Starbucks provided both. It is nothing more or less than what you might expect,. Even if your Mandarin isn't all that flash, and their English is on a par you... More

This Starbucks is in an excellent location, very centrally located and just 2 minutes walk from the Bell Tower subway station. You could even view both the Bell Tower and also the Drum Tower, if you are willing to sit outside, where there are tables and seats. The maintenance of the toilet however for such top performing Starbucks store is... More

Its of course only another starbucks. But if you love it, you'll love the one in between the two towers, as it looks very special from the outside.

Very crowded Starbucks. Line up is long and hard to find a seat. Better walk up the stairs (right above) and you will find better coffee, smaller line up.

I am not a fan of food chains, but in this location I can say Starbucks in Xi'An saved my breakfast. Nice place on the "plaza" with outdoor tables. Clean and tidy to Starbucks standards, food is ok , coffee is good but only disposable cups available at the time we visited or staff didn't ask if we have the... More

This was my first time visiting a Starbucks in China and I was amazed at how similar everything is globally. Right down to the taste of the blueberry muffins and the paninis on offer! Whilst I am surprised this is in the top 10 TA restaurants, we did find it a good spot for breakfast. Our hotel didn't have breakfast... More

It was just a walking distance from my hotel so I used to take my favourite hot chocolate everyday. Staff was friendly, wifi was crappy and during weekdays they used to close at 11pm and on weekend they asked me to leave at 11:30pm :)

It was a wet day in Xi'an, so we went to Starbucks instead of doing Xi'ans wall and the bell tower. It was good to have a good cup of coffee and some thing to eat, just what you would expect from Starbucks, but although they had free wifi, I couldn't access it on my laptop, it seems you have...
