First Review by Fredh

lovely decorations, private tables, helpful staff - Edit

Very friendly and helpful staff who spoke a bit of English. The restaurant is decorated very nicely and it does feel like you are walking into a massage place, as a previous reviewer commented! Easy to order by looking at the photos on the menu. The tables all seem to be private, divided by screens. The food was good, though not the best we've had in our China trip but was enjoyable. A bit pricey but not too bad, we paid 75 for two people for rice and 3 dishes.

Wonderful Spot!!! - Edit

The address correction from the last reviewer is greatly appreciated! I went here with my parents for dinner. We are all vegan and were looking for a decent dinner for a moderate price. We found it! The ambiance is really neat, the staff is friendly, and the food is AMAZING!

We got jiaozi, fried lotus, mashed yam with blueberry sauce, and a cold smoked tofu dish. The jiaozi and fried lotus were divine. I wouldn't get the mashed yam again, but it's an Eastern China staple, so I am glad we at least tried it. It wasn't terrible, just not a favorite.

During our meal, there was an opera performance in one of the private rooms and the singing wafted melodically over our table. At the end of our meal, a wonderful former employee who was visiting the establishment offered to buy our food for us and we chatted and took pictures together. As a resident of Chengdu, I find the Chinese to be very friendly in areas of cities that don't get as many foreigners. We are staying at a hotel inside the city wall, but we were all very excited to have this more authentic experience of Xi'an city fare. I know that not everyone can have such a singular experience as we had, but if you are open, good things will happen, and if you visit this establishment, you will at the very least have a wonderful meal!

Pros: price, friendly, authentic

Cons: hard to get to

Just Delicious - Edit

This place had the incorrect address listed, with the actual one being about a 10 minute walk away. We emailed HappyCow and the address should be updated soon. When you come up to the 3F floor off the elevator, it's the restaurant straight ahead- it looks like you're entering a massage/yoga place! Just keep walking through it and someone will greet you and seat you. Menu entirely in Chinese, but they have pictures. Delicious food- try the dumplings and their sesame balls.

Pros: Peaceful , Kind staff, Good food

Cons: Location hard to find at first

Bit tricky to find but worth it - Edit

This place exists but is a bit difficult to find, particularly as there is another (omniverous) restaurant with the same name just a few doors down. As a previous reviewer said, it is in the corner building on an upper floor, I think the third floor. When you come out of the lift there is a restaurant to the right and one straight ahead, it is the one straight ahead in some kind of Buddhist worship centre. Only one staff member spoke some English but it wasn't too big of a deal as there is an extensive picture menu on a tablet. The food was tasty with good sized portions, we particularly liked the fried lotus root with corn.

Pros: Tasty food, Good sized portions

Cons: A bit tricky to find but doable

Walked all over this area and asked many vendors. It's a sham. I'm starving and pretty disappointed.

The decoration, the music give a zen atmosphere.
The menu wasn't written but with image. They don't know much English but use translation in order to help.

Delicious and affordable vegan food in cozy atmosphere - Edit

Their Chinese cuisine was the best we've had so far... :) Especially the dumplings are awesome!
The place is very nicely decorated, and we had private tables. Staff was very friendly, but did not speak English (menu was picture-based). The food was affordable, 40 - 50 RMB for a big meal with multiple dishes (soup, mock meat, vegetables, dumplings).

Directions: coming from east city wall gate, a 10min eastward walk on Dongguanzheng street. After passing a big pedestrian bridge, the restaurant lies on the left site at the crossing with Gengxing street in the corner building (entrance facing Dongguanzheng, restaurant on third floor).

Pros: Nice atmosphere, delicious, cheap, WiFi, friendly

Cons: No English
