When you go to the big wild goose pagoda, the fountain show or the shaanxi history museum this is a good place to eat. The menu is also in English and they take good care of you. When I was sitting there for a while two different supervising ladies came to my table to check my order and took action... More

We walked to this restaurant from our hotel the Westin. Both the hotel and the restaurant are off a nice park. We picked it because of the distance from our hotel and its ratings. We were seated quickly. The place is nicely decorated and you can't miss the sign on out front. No one spoke English well enough to communicate... More

Not at all what I was hoping. We were sent here by our hotel as THE place to get dumplings. No one understood English. Only one picture showed dumplings. Could not tell what kind they were. We ordered them and I still could not figure out what they were. Not very good. We could not even finish them. Disappointing.

First Noodle Under the Sun has a few locations in Xi'An and are famous for their signature 3.8m noodles folded up in a big bowl. The noodles were a little oily but delicious. The spicy chicken was also a great choice. You can find their English menu on Spoonhunt App at Spoonhunt.com so you can order when you're there.

Famous for its 3.8m noodle called the biang biang noodle. Very good although slightly over hyped. They did have a very good spicy chicken dish. The noodles bowl is quite massive and be prepared with an empty stomach. For the price paid it's well worth a visit. Don't get me wrong the noodles are very good but just not as... More

I always enjoy a bowl of noodle, dry, mixed, soup...all kinds, the menu seems little bit funny with their "English", could be more accurate...I always eat garlic with my noodle when i'm eating outside, it adds flavor and also helps kill any "germs" that cause my running stomach...however about 10mins after I had the noodle I need to find a...

Lots of choices for noodles and soups on English menu although that wasn't as helpful as it sounds. Good sized portions. Really enjoyed the food. I had fried noodles and a spicy dumpling soup. Came back again the next night. Great value. Had no problems being seated at 7:30 pm on a Monday although it looked crowded other times I... More

The menu offered quite varied with good taste. The famous one is wide, thin and soft noodles, served with 2 choices of soup, seafood flavor and spicy taste. Prices are quite reasonable. The waiter was very friendly and helpful.

The service here is quite good for the area, and there's quite a selection of noodles to fit every taste. Unfortunately, since the place was so crowded and chaotic (if that's an excuse) the server brought the wrong bowl of noodles to our table... And how was I to know the difference? We started dating it until we were told... More
