I know the other reviewers said this was hard to find, but I really don't think this restaurant exists at the current location anymore. We were there this week and the Xian Hotel that it is meant to be on the 2nd floor of has its doors all chained up, there is lots of rubbish around and the hotel isn't... More

On the second floor of the Xi'an hotel, there's a restaurant known as the Xi'an Fan Zhuang. While the hotel itself is rundown, the restaurant itself is quite well maintained and managed. It's a hidden gem where real locals go to eat delicious Chinese food. My two friends and I managed to fill ourselves to the brim all for 181... More

It serves local Xi'an specialities like the "local hamburger", grilled lamb etc. The food are pretty good. The"hamburger" is pretty heavy, but is tasty. The lamb in particular was delicious. The...

This is a huge restaurant that is good for big groups. The location wise, it is hard to find and is located within a run down hotel called "Xi'an Hotel". Once you locate this hotel, just be brave and take the lift to the restaurant though it don't look like one. Once inside, don't worry, the restaurant is professional managed... More

We read the earlier reviews, so went in with lowered expectations. Note- the restaurant is closed from 2pm to 5pm. We found out the hard way. We asked a local cab driver to take us to the best local food place. He dropped us off here, but it was only 4pm and they did not open until 5pm for dinner... More

Can't fault the food here, super tasty local food at very reasonable price. We ordered the Bo Bo chicken, some soup and a couple of other snack type of dishes, all very nice. The chicken was a big hit for the family. Before I ordered, hubby said one chicken would be too much for us but as soon as we... More

Truly a favourite place for locals. We reached late (about 8:30pm) just in time before their last order at 9pm. We ordered their award-winning chicken dish (gourd chicken - its on their first page), melt-in-your-mouth pork belly and dumplings (minimum order 3pcs). Taste authentic.
