I believe this is a chain restaurant but I have to say that it's one of the best Chinese food I've had. It's full of flavour and the portion sizes are very good. The place is not the most comfortable place to eat in but it has enough stools for about 40 people. I learned that this food is from... More

I normally do not like Chinese food since I think it all taste like soy and oil but Xi'an Famous Food is a different style of Chinese food from the Northwestern region of China influenced by Middle Eastern flavors and spises. What a joy! I tried dumplings and a lamp noodle dish and I was happy to try this and... More

I'm a Chinese girl from Chicago, just for the foods they serving. All food yummy. Pretty good. A Chinese cruise. Xi'an food. Not the same as traditional but is pretty similarly.

Xi'an has made changes in staff since my roommate had a severe gluten allergy to a meal that he bought there. In light of the fact that I have had three excellent meals since then, prepared by in no time at all, by very friendly employees, I am raising my review to five starts. The Cold Noodles are great.

Xi'an is a small local chain of 'bare bones' restaurants around NYC. Place your order, squeeze into a seat at a long table, and chow down with strangers. They specialize in various types of noodles, some hand pulled. The food is delicious....and relatively inexpensive. Go!

Crowded and small this excellent restaurant is worth the trouble. We have ordered almost everything on the menu and cannot pick out a favorite. Everything is great. This place is New York destination.

We walked to this location of Xi'an from our hotel. It was busy on a Thursday night but there was a spot to perch and eat our amazing noodles! The turnover is fast here. I had the spicy curried lamb noodles in soup, and my husband had the plate and we both LOVED it. Good flavor, good burn and amazing... More

Typical authentic street food type of place you'd find in China. They cooks are using formulas so the food misses just a bit. Would definitely go back for quick, Chinese meal on the run.

The place was very busy, very popular. We came here for a late dinner, around 8 PM. We were lucky that some seats opened up along a stainless steel counter against a brick wall. The noodles were being made right there. Some items were sold out, but there was plenty to choose from. I had the noodles with oxtails. Well... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
