Clean casual restaurant with great service; however, the menu could use a bit of tweaking. Maybe my expectations were too high after seeing this was the #1 rated restaurant here on TA but we all were a bit disappointed with our visit. I have to believe Xi'An has better restaurants to offer than this.
We arrived for a late dinner - around 9pm and were happily greeted and shown to our table. A small fish in a glass bowl on each table was a nice touch. Menus are quite extensive and are printed with both English and Chinese. Photos are shown for a large amount of selected dishes (but not all dishes).
One person in my party enjoyed their very large bowl of beef brisket noodle soup. I ordered the French toast but was surprised to find it served with peanut butter. 'French toast peanut butter sandwich' would have been a better description. Everything else was just average, not horrible, but not amazing either. We went out wanting to enjoy good food at a recommended restaurant, but when we left, we wished we had just had a boring dinner at our hotel.
We only stayed in Xi'An one night, so I wish I could say I had another restaurant to suggest, but unfortunately we "wasted" our dinner experience here. I can only guess it has such high reviews because they have English menus and serve both Asian and Western foods prices inexpensively.
