Actually in China, espcially in recent 20years, the longer history local-folk snacks- restaurant has, the more inferior taste it will be...which is a very very regretful fact our chinese people has to confess... In order to try ture worthy snacks you'd better to have a local friend who could guide you go into some nowhere alleies where our local guys... More

I like this restaurant as they serve different types of dumplings. It is possible to take different type of menu or one type of dumplings. Some of the dumplings looks like duck, so very special look also very tasty. I recommend! Moer you can find on jolifestyle .ocm

It took a little effort to find this place. Don't stop at the ground floor where there is a cafeteria style dumpling shop The secret is to go upstairs to the 2nd floor and wait for a table. There is a great view of the Bell Tower from the dining room - try to get a window seat. No English... More

very unique dumplings, which all come out a once in a very large stack! Non descript restaurant décor but the experience of trying many varieties of dumplings is good. Service is ok, clean but too large of a restaurant to make it quaint

We ate dumplings at a variety of restaurants in China but this was the only one that actually formed the dumplings to represent the fillings. In other words, chicken or duck looked like a duck, etc. All were very tasty and we had a variety of other nice dishes as well. Our guide had made a reservation for us so... More

Must have the banquet as all the dumplings are great and the banquet room is far nicer. Tip. DON'T eat lunch before going. A great bonus is having a sensational view of the Bell Tower lot up at night.

This is one of the oldest and most famous dumpling restaurants in the city of Xi'an which prides itself on the huge range of dumplings that are part of its famous cuisine. We were taken there by two Chinese friends last week. It was a rainy night and I didn't really fancy going out to eat - but I am... More

I ate here with a tour group in a private room. Service was better on previous visits and by the time we had our last dumplings, they were cold. Our server seemed bored with her job.
