“Yummy breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

We ate here twice during our recent trip, for dinner and breakfast. Dinner was good, a choice of either a buffet or a la carte menu. The buffet caters very well for both Chinese and western visitors, plenty of choice and the food was constantly being refreshed.
For me though breakfast was the best meal. The buffet was fantastic. Separate stations for fruits, pastries, waffles and pancakes, western style breakfast items and Chinese style breakfast items. Fruit was tasty and fresh, pancakes and waffles were cooked to order, the bread was fresh and tasty etc etc. the only two negative aspects were the price and the coffee. At 310yuan for 2, it's not cheap. Plus the coffee and tea wasn't great. However if you are looking for a good hearty western breakfast in Xian then this is a great spot.

“To make sure you get served, do the buffet”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

The somewhat overpriced buffet was good enough, but if you decided you wanted a continental breakfast, bring your IPhone and your favorite game. Twice I ordered a continental breakfast and twice I had to ASK for a plate after they plunked down the basket of rolls.

“Good but not up to expectations.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Azur is a nice restaurant located in the Sofitel located on a 10 minute walk from the very center. The restaurant has a modern city ambiance and is obviously targeting business travellers and/or groups using the conference facilities. It is not the cosy 'lean back' place tourists appreciate. Nevertheless it remains a nice place to use a meal. Unfortunately we were disappointed by the dishes. They were not as good and tastefull as you would expect. The qaulity was just below level. My boiled chicken, a speciality according to the menu, was cold when it was served. It was supposed to be luke warm. Not cold. My wifes oreerde noodles and it looked good but they were greasy and the taste was negatively influenced by it. The prices are ok. It is very affordable and you could say prices are even low taking in consideration the location. However you will be able to find places offering a better quality at much lower prices.
