I dine here often with my friends.
The food is always fresh and delicious"
Dined on 2/24/2014
The food is truly outstanding. We
had the Miso Black Cod, the Tuna Tartare on Rice cakes, the Kung Pao Chicken and the Spa Rice. Everything was very flavorful and tasty. We sent the Kung Pao back because it wasn't spicy enough and they happily whipped up another batch. The cocktails are very tasty and worth the price, however it took ours 30 minutes to arrive, so dont go there thirsty! In general a wonderful meal."

Food is the same - okay - portions
seem smaller and the prices are higher. All in all, disappointing."
Dined on 2/21/2014
We had the chicken & the fish-
both so overly salty it was difficult to eat. Both dishes were listed on the menu as being heart healthy so we were definitely not expecting an abundance of sodium."

Great Food, Well Priced,
professional polite staff! A very nice dining experience"
Dined on 2/3/2014
Better to go when there's no lunch
rush. The biggest problem is the hostess: rude and unfriendly."

Always love going to Xian but it
was extra fun this Chinese New Years! Live performance 'Dragon Dance' with music...so fun! Also special "new years' dishes prepared for good luck and prosperity that were delicious! Always a great time with good food and ambiance at Xian."
Dined on 1/31/2014
One of the worst services I have
had at any restaurant! Not only forgot our order but rude when we asked about it! As I was leaving disappointed about the food and the service I noticed it has a "B" rating! Never again!"
Dined on 1/29/2014
love the food here, but as it has
lots of families, it is quite noisy and lots of kids running around. other than that - the dishes are great, as is the service."

Xi'An has authentic Chinese food
as well as incredible service. My glass of water was never empty there. As a Chinese, I highly recommend this place if you want Chinese food in a good atmosphere."
Dined on 1/8/2014
Food is always well prepared and
excellent quality. Sometimes service can be inconsistent, but Mr. Tao is the very best if you can get him. He has great suggestions and makes sure you will be happy with your meal."
Dined on 1/9/2014
Dinner at Xi'an, was wonderful as
always. The food is fresh and prepared perfectly. The hostess and the servers were friendly and attentive. It seems to be the perfect neighborhood place as we saw several friends that evening."
Dined on 1/7/2014
The restaurant was not as good as
I remembered - maybe we ordered the wrong things. I was hoping for a good Sunday night local Chinese restaurant for an early dinner with the kids but am not sure I would go back. Service was good, and it is reasonable."
Dined on 1/5/2014
I been going to this restaurant
for 3 years and never had a bad meal, always delicious and the price is great ."

restaurant was decorated and
festive on New year's eve...food was delicious and staff was warm and friendly; there was no set menu and no hiked up prices! they passed out champagne at 9PM and we watched the New Year ball drop in Times Square..fun!"
Dined on 12/31/2013
I have discovered that at Xian you
cannot venture much outside of what you know or you can be disappointed. The walnut shrimp tasted like frozen boiled plastic and was a huge disappointment. The amount of wonton soup you get for $6.95 is the smallest bowl i have ever seen at a restaurant and definitely not for sharing. The lettuce cup w chicken should have some veggies. Potstickers great. Mongolion beef great. Made the mistake of the everything fried rice and it was ruined by the frozen plastic shrimp"

This was the second time in the
past 3 months that we have gone to X'ian. The food was not good for the second time..tastless and overpriced for the portions. Nothing tasted very fresh and all was either over cooked or under cooked. The service was very good however. We have been there several times in 2013 and don't plan on going back again in the future. We have taken our adult children and they did not like it either maybe you have to be a "regular" to have decent food."

Right in the heart of Beverly
Hills is this marvelous Chinese restaurant with an outdoor patio and excellent food"
Dined on 11/26/2013
The food was noit just very good
it was excellent.. The menu changed adding new items which make a fonderful to choose items that taste and looks great."

Tasty dining in a handsome venue
with attentive service."

I have had the pleasure of dining
at Xi'an on many occasions and having reviewed restaurants for a living for many years I would say that Xi'an is one of the best. The food is always good and that is why I return time and again."
Dined on 11/17/2013
I love eating outdoors. So my
friend and I chose an outdoor table, but every time the waiter stepped inside the restaurant, there was a beggar who would come and sing loudly (music that clashed with the ambient music the restaurant was playing). Then we heard him hassle another table to see if they were going to eat the food they were taking home. Later he came back and begged from my friend and I - asking for $$ because he was a starving artist. So obnoxious. I expect, when I go out to eat in Beverly Hills, to be able to enjoy an indoor or outdoor dining experience without being hassled by riffraff. While the restaurant does not own the sidewalk - it is their job to ensure that the people dining there have a good experience."
Dined on 10/21/2013
Food here was mediocre, at
best:chicken was undercooked, vegetables overcooked & soggy. Xian was never considered a "great" Chinese restaurant, but now it's coasting on whatever laurels it did have. Shrimp dish was particularly pathetic: tiny (almost bay) shrimp with a lack of seasoning."
Dined on 11/3/2013
Xian used to be our 'go to"
Chinese restaurant, but we hadn't been there in some months. It was notably empty when we arrived and we wondered why...until we received the meal. The Tan Tan noodles were virtually tasteless. The Singapore noodles were all mushed together and were lifted in one big clump to hang off the chopstick. Not a good sight. The good news is that the service was very professional and thoughtful. I'm not sure if we'll go again when there are so many restaurants in Beverly Hills vying for customers."
Dined on 10/20/2013
It doesn't make any sense to eat
here expecting something special in the food. It's a sit-down Panda Express paying too much for overhead and rent due to the location. The staff also prefers the glitzier clientele versus the average patron. You could clearly see in their facial expression the difference when serving those who appear to have more money. Here's some advice to their staff. There are a lot of white collar folks who work around your area and we always don't get decked out with bling. But we can guarantee you that we give higher tips than those flashy folks almost all the time."

Best Chinese food in town and Mike
is as good a waiter as there is."
Dined on 10/13/2013
I'm always in the mood for good
Chinese food, however, my experience is that it's a difficult find in LA. I was looking for a less glitzy LA restaurant after several days of good but high profile places and our concierge at SLS told us that she personally enjoyed this place. The food was great! The atmosphere was indeed energetic but not imposing. Next time we visit my son who lives in LA this place will be high on my list of "must return tos.""

Always too noisy inside, but we
changed tables 3 times. First, in private room the air conditioning was blowing on us. Then, table next to us old man was screaming to be heard, and we couldn't talk at all. Finally we moved outside where table was so tight that we had to raise the umbrells just to be comfortable."

Been dining at Xian for many
years...never experienced a bad meal or slow service."
Dined on 9/15/2013
While the menu lists a lot of
classic Chinese dishes, which is why I went there, this was the worst "Chinese" food we have ever experienced. The onion pancakes were dry and hard, sauces on everything too sweet and the eggplant with garlic was overcooked and mushy. The service by Asian wait staff (presumably to convince diners this is really an Asian restaurant) was very slow and unprofessional. We left over half of every dish uneaten, and refused to take it, but no one asked why. The prices were reasonable, but frankly almost any Chinese takeout place has far better food than this. I was hoping for a good Chinese place in Beverly Hills, where I live, but was very disappointed."

I liked the fact that they had
heart healthy meals"
Dined on 9/8/2013
Everything very good if
unsurprising. Service good if not most warm and fuzzy."
Dined on 8/26/2013
I really enjoyed the chinese food
here. it had all the flavor you want, but not as fried and greasy as some spots food are. the meats were cooked to perfection."
Dined on 8/23/2013
I haven't eaten chinese food since
I've had to go gluten free, but they understand and have many items that I can eat now!!"
Dined on 8/6/2013
We had a great time at Xian! Great
food, great service and an awsome fortune cookie reading. Looking forward to dining there soon."
Dined on 7/24/2013
Xi'an is an excellent dining
experience. The food was well-prepared and presented. The service was prompt, courteous and helpful. And the price was reasonable. Xi'an is a cut above most typical restaurants serving Chinese food in terms of food preparation which is devoid of filler and is fresh and simply delicious. For example, we had dumplings, Peking duck, chicken and mixed vegetables and a spicy shrimp. Each was a notable offering."
Dined on 7/20/2013
Although we have been there many
times and thought it was delicious and the service was great.This time we had a different waiter who was just OK.The food was so SALTY that 2 of us couldn't eat it.We were 3 adults and we all thought the food was poor. Also, they tried to clear the table while one person was still eating.It was not busy, so there was no reason for that or should there be no matter how busy they are."
Dined on 7/7/2013
The food is nothing special and
the waiters are unfriendly. At some point they all disappeared in the back and three tables of customers were left waiting trying to get their checks to leave that place. Will never go back."
Dined on 7/6/2013
This is an upscale Chinese
restaurant with many offerings not seen at other Chinese spots. There are also 'healthy' choices which is great. Generous portions to share. Expect Beverly Hills prices ---- well, it is in BH ---- so don't be surprised. The lunch specials look very good and are very reasonably priced."
