- Bad ExperienceHelpDined on 10/16/2014The worst Chinese food I have every eaten Southern California. The pork buns were ground up mush, the dumpling were a thick skin not the usual thin light skins. The fill was all mush. The roast pork appetizer was dry and hard to chew. The won ton soup was good and tasty and was the only dish the was enjoyably.
- Ed12Dined on 10/4/2014I was looking forward to a great Chinese restaurant. Instead I found a good restaurant, that was not exceptional. I heard of Xian through a friend who enjoyed his experience.
- XianBHWorkerDined on 10/3/2014This is a very nice looking restaurant with very good service. However, I will not return due to the poor food. Both my friend and I had the Kung Pao Shrimp lunch special (marked as spicy), one with hot & sour soup, the other with egg drop soup. The soup was the high point. The shrimp was bland and tasteless. After asking for chili paste to add flavor, the paste was overly salty and inedible. Disappointing...
- Bonnie9748Dined on 9/29/2014Every dish was incredibly flavorful and and everything tasted so fresh, you could really savor the ingredients and sense that the kitchen healthfully prepares the menu items. We had range of vegetable, beef and rice dishes and all were spot on tasty - from the traditional to a twist on the staples, like brown fried rice with egg white and vegetables. I love meeting clients here and taking my family to this restaurant - always consistent and great.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great service not great goodCraigbDined on 8/29/2014I've eaten at many Chinese restaurents and really expected better. Probably some of the blandest Chinese food I've ever had. Unfortunatly. The service was exceptional though.
- LoveLondonDined on 8/24/2014Bad service, average food,expensive and noisy. We asked for 3 main couses and only one arrive. The other two, including the rice arrived 20 min after when the first one was already cold!
- Wasn't happy with our choicesFriedmansVIPDined on 8/20/2014Perhaps we can return and order different dishes but two out of our three entrees were very disappointing. The Orange Chicken appeared to be missing the chicken. It tasted like orange flavored fried chicken skin. Order white meat only if you want chicken. I have had decent meal in the past so I believe it is all about ordering the right dishes.
- Great dinnerHappyMomCvilleDined on 8/17/2014With two kids in tow, we were looking for good food near out hotel. Xi'An has really good Chinese food and they are willing to accommodate special orders. Will definitely be returning!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 8/10/2014Great food...unique dishes, excellent service. Very friendly staff from top to bottom.I would recommend this to a friend.
- Poor serviceOpenTable Diner Since 2010VIPDined on 8/7/2014I really enjoyed the food but our waiter was so disappointing. Prolonged periods of absence. Brought wrong order. Looked miffed when I reminded him he he'd forgotten dishes we'd ordered. No apology...nothing . Too bad he ruined what could have otherwise been a very nice evening.
- Xian is greatOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 7/16/2014Never Been here before came with low expectations left completely satisfied and have already spoken to friends about going againSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great food! Way too noisyGiGiDined on 7/13/2014We often don't go there because of the noise level and when we do plan a meal at Xian we go there really early before it gets too noisy. I think they should try to do something to lower the decibel level but then they are so popular that I guess they don't have to worry about itSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Service par excellenceNewMamaVIPDined on 7/3/2014Hostess came to make sure all was well. Dish came with bell peppers. I'm allergic. They were apologetic n promptly replaced. Dish was delicious.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Birthday LunchHawk12Dined on 5/21/2014I came here for lunch with six girlfriends for my birthday on a Wednesday. Noon was a perfect time to get here, it got busy with the lunch crowd around 12:30 or so. The service was great & the food was excellent!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Mouth WateringLizzieismVIPDined on 5/3/2014This upscale Chinese restaurant is not to be missed. The food is consistently delicious, the restaurant is contemporary and tastefully, simply decorated. There is an outside patio in front of the windowed, comfortably sized restaurant and a portion of the dining area is able to be closed off for private parties or a slightly more quiet area. The portions are ample. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. There is valet parking available , street parking or a 2 hour municipal lot nearbySpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Luv2eatVIPDined on 4/20/2014Love the Wonton soup and Chinese chicken salad. As an entree we are always watching our weight so we get the green beans and beef tenderloin on rice sticks. So delicious!!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Beverly Hills Good FoodBerlyhillsdiningVIPDined on 4/19/2014If you need a place to eat in Beverly Hills try Xian - good food, good atmosphere and great service-as well as eating outside is special!Special Features:
- AHG5VIPDined on 4/6/2014Even on a Sunday evening, you should make a reservation. Food is wonderful. I go there at least once every time I am in LA.
- Horrible serviceMEB1Dined on 4/4/2014The service at this restaurant was just horrible. The server was so slow. He finally would bring out a couple of orders where others had to wait for theirs, for a long, long time. He forgot to bring out certain sauces that we asked for. I asked again for extra lemon so he proceeded to go over to the bar area, grabbed one lemon wedge, and then handed it to me, with his bare hand. No thanks. It took forever to have the dishes cleared as well. The restaurant was very loud, acoustics were terrible, and we could barely hear ourselves talk. I wrote to the owner, via email, have yet to hear back. All the people in our party of 5 agree that we would never go there again.
- We have been to Xi'an severalKristyDined on 4/3/2014We have been to Xi'an several times. Overall, the food is qood. Some dishes are better than others. We tried the crispy beef, and boy, was it crispy. Wouldn't do that again. However, I did like the Mongolian Beef dish. Pot stickers were yummy too.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- It is very difficult to findOpenTable Diner Since 2008VIPDined on 4/2/2014It is very difficult to find really good Chinese food. I've sampled in many cities; the best so far was Epcot. X'ian came very close, if not nearly equal, to the only other place that I ever enjoyed Chinese food, plus atmospher too!! My husband and I enjoyed the evening with our son. It was a bummer that our daughter missed joining us but she did enjoy the leftovers. We did order extra, knowing we'd bring back to hotel for her! A really yummy meal!Special Features:
- excellentzsofiDined on 3/17/2014I was only there for a quick dinner -- I sort of wish I had more time to linger and try everything on the menu. The food was excellent, and service was very fast, although we were there pretty early.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Great Food, slow serviceChefChutneyDined on 2/23/2014The 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Disappointed in XianwestsidefoodieVIPDined on 2/21/2014Food is the same - okay - portions seem smaller and the prices are higher. All in all, disappointing.
- So salty!!!!Foodie18VIPDined on 2/18/2014We 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.

- Better to go when there'sOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 1/31/2014Better to go when there's no lunch rush. The biggest problem is the hostess: rude and unfriendly.
- One of the worst servicesnotgoodDined on 1/29/2014One 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!
