“Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2015 NEW

Our partner took us here for lunch and we had maybe 5-6 different dishes, including crispy chicken, spicy cucumbers and biang biang me - local famous noodles, all was tasty and not very expensive!

“Worth a visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2015

I've visited First Noodle a few time during my two years in Xi'an. There was one of the restaurants close to where I worked. Overall, as a foreigner... make sure that you point to the correct picture. The staff doesn't always speak English, and if they do it is very broken. The food is good though. I can recommend going there. The food is of a good quality and the portions are generous. It is also reasonably priced.

“Good food and massive portions ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2014

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 is so cheap you can face the luxury of trying different things. Of course you have no table cloth and people next to you spit the bones of the chickens on the table, but that's china for you!

“Very good soups”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2014

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.
