“Interesting food in ancient street”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

There are so many restaurants here to choose from but since we had a guide, he took us to eat mutton noodle soup which was quite delicious but pricey. Not bad for the local authentic noodle soup. Everything else is interesting to look at but not as good as they look. The local atmosphere is what you get most out of this place.

“started seeking out muslim restaurants”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

During my travel thruout china i ate at a lot of noodle houses. I found that the muslim restaurants had larger and more ingredients then what i would find in a hun restaurant. if you enjoy mutton make sure to visit a muslim quarter. This street had plenty of open air eateries so visit here on an empty stomach and just go from stall to stall eating.

“Very busy, exciting street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

A very busy but exciting street. Food stalls everywhere. Trinkets and small items for sale. Well worth the visit. Trying to find somewhere to sit down can be challenging. I would do this again.

“Amazing , not to be missed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Amazing colourful Muslim Street is actually several street where you can wander for two or three hours soaking up the atmosphere. So many delicious foods on sale it is hard to choose. Sweet, savoury all looking tasty. The Mosque is worth a visit, a calming oasis in a busy busy area.
So many great photo opportunities!!!!!
Behind the Drum Tower is the start.

“Fascinating... but exhausting.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013 via mobile

There's all kinds of local food to try, there are a lot of souvenirs to buy. It's a little overwhelming because there are a lot of people shouting, little mopeds honking and even cars trying to get through. Nonetheless a trip well worth it, a must when visiting Xi'an. But you will need some rest afterwards.
