    I'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.

    Perhaps 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.

    I 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.

    We 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 it

    This 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 nearby

    The 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 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.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008VIP
    Dined on 4/2/2014
    It 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!

    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.

    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.
