“Dumplings to die for”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Lunch at this classic in Xian as part of an A&K personalised tour was sensational. Topped off a fabulous morning at the Terracotta Warriors. The detail in the dumplings is something to behold - and yes they're pretty scrumptious as well.

“Need to be improved!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

An amazing dumpling banquet! My friend and I had a fun time there last weekend. This is not a new resturant nearby Small Goose Pagoda. Walking along the cultural corridor hanging with Chinese style pictures on each side, we just loved this excellent cultural atmosphere. During the whole dinner, we were treated by very friendly young waitress. Worth to mention is its tasty dumplings are made in various shapes, colors and flavors. We all feel it is a feast for the eyes, my US friend even took photos of these cute dumplings. Pity that there is no English menu here, so I have to introduce each dishes for my friend, hope next time there will be a menu for foreigners friends which might be more convenient. Possibly due to massive customers, some chairs here are sort of scraped off paint and there is some unpleasant smell in toilet. While wholly speaking it still deserves a try.

“Great dumplings, amazing show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

the dumplings were very good. The atmosphere is amazing and the show that follows the dinner is magical. Music, dance and costumes from different dynasties.

“Yummy Dumplings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Stay downstairs for a casual meal or go upstairs for a belly filling dumpling extravaganza! Both are deliscious.
