We took this tour a couple of weeks ago while on holiday, and highly recommend it. It is a must for any tourist interested in food and the local history and culture of Xian. It involves a tuk tuk tour of 4 street food/small restaurant providers in the busy labyrinthine alleyways of the extensive and historically fascinating Muslim area of the city. Each offered a different culinary experience based on the fusion of food from their Middle Eastern heritage and their long association with China, in a friendly welcoming environment. We saw noodles being expertly hand made, and then tasted them in a fantastic spicy broth filled with vegetables and meat. Then we had a host of tiny beef kebabs seasoned to perfection and cooked on a little grill in the street, accompanied with a homemade plum based drink. This was followed by delicious dumplings in another little restaurant and finally, in a further restaurant, a wonderful whole chicken that had been cooked in several different ways so that it fell off the bone. The evening was rounded off with a get-together in the bar of a local micro=brewery just outside the Muslim Quarter, where we enjoyed tasting a range of their beers and comparing notes on a lovely evening. Our guide, Michelle, had excellent English and was charming, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable throughout. Our tuk tuk driver was a very experienced and safe driver in sometimes demanding circumstances in the busy narrow lanes. We loved it all: great guide, great driver, great food, great company and great fun. We'd do it again in a heartbeat.

You'll taste the best local food on offer, go to places you'd never find on your own and have a homegrown guide who's knowledgeable, friendly, speaks great English and has a bottomless supply of beers so you never go thirsty ... and she even made the extra effort to make sure we all got into our taxis and Didi's ok at the end of the night. Great way to spend a night in Xian. Do not miss this!

An excellent evening exploring the hidden delights of Xi'an's Muslim quarter and the local food. Four different styles of food, all delicious, and a visit to the local brewery to finish. Michelle, our guide, was helpful and knowledgeable, a perfect host with excellent English. I shall definitely be doing this tour again when my family comes out to visit.
