Biang biang noodle making class
Lily and Michael were so accommodating in this class! There aren’t too many tourists to Xi’an at the moment, so they invited me to their house. Michael met me in town and took me to the local market to buy ingredients, then we went to their house, where I learned to make biang biang noodles. They also prepared some other dishes (spinach noodles, century eggs, and a pork jelly dish) for me to try. They were so friendly, and I will definitely try to make the noodles again! I would definitely recommend to anyone coming to Xi’an who enjoys food!

Fun noodle making in great setting
Dec. 2019 • Couples
My boyfriend came to visit me in China where I live (I am American). We took the noodle making class. We were the only two people which made it a nice fun experience with Lily and the chef at the restaurant. Beautiful restaurant and great experience making and then eating what we made. Lily was warm and accommodating even when I needed to adjust our times to meet and leave. Would highly recommend.
