“Very Nice Xi'an Local Chinese Cuisine”

XiAn FanZhuang (Dong Main Street)
Restaurant details
Reviewed June 7, 2013

We had dinner in the East Street one as well as the Fenghao East Road one. The cuisine menu and food quality are basically the same, hence I mixed the 2 dinners in this review.

First talk about the East Street. The restaurant is decorated and atmosphered in typical Chinese style of upper class, bright and clean. Out of the various dishes we tried, I love the "three freshes in soup" and the "rou jia mo".

As the taste was so good, we went to the Fenghao East Road one for dinner 2 days later and tried other dishes. The decoration and atmosphere are similar to the East Street one but looks a bit newer. There was no disappointment as the dishes are equally delicious. Out of the dishes we tried this time, I love the "feng wei lamb chop" and "broccoli coin fa cai", see photos attached.

In fact all dishes we tried were tasteful. It is the best restaurant we visited in Xi'an throughout the 6 days holiday. Highly recommended for local Chinese cuisine. Cost is about RMB 60 to 120 per person, not counting drinks. Good value for money as well.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Xi'an. We speak no Chinese and were the only Westerners in the room. It appeared to be mainly populated by locals on their way home from work, judging by the abundance of business attire and briefcases. There is a picture menu and, fortunately, there was a manager on duty with a working knowledge of restaurant English. We initially tried to order just by pointing to menu items but encountered problems with our non-English speaking waitress who kept shaking her head. She brought over the manager, who explained that they were sold out of the items we were requesting. We asked him to recommend some dishes and he did, explaining each to us. Food was delicious and we tried things we might not have if we'd not put ourselves into the hands of the manager. Price was very reasonable.

We, including the kids, very much liked the food at this restaurant especially the gourd shaped chicken (slow roasted chicken in spices which was deliciious), the shaanxi fried dumplings, and all the other dishes we ate. Highly recommend and we would go back again when we go back to Xian. Menu has pictures in it. No English.

It is the second time I eat there in the last 3 years and it is still a popular and very tasty restaurant. Menu only in Chinese - with pictures.
