There is a mix comment on Trip advisors about this place, but we decided to try it anyway. Sadly, We found their dumplings are far from being good and also expensive. We went for restaurant section on the 2nd floor and took their dumping set at about ¥120. From the set, there are about 14 dumplings with different filling. All... More

Ask for a table in upper second floor to have round tables - and enjoy chinese dishes. Well staffed restaurant for a safe dining experience after much walking as tourist in Xi'An. A light dinner for four would end up less than 300 Rmb in the nice dining hall.

It's quite interesting to taste Xi'an traditional food, dumplings, in style. We had banquet dumplings (18 different dumplings) accompanied with some pickles. Each shape of dumpling represents the filling. Appreciated the waiters' effort trying to explain each dumpling in English. Price is not cheap, ¥132 per person but it's Xi'an food experience that you pay.

The prices are high for what you get. They have a variety of dumplings but they are mostly just so so. They had a set menu which included 18 dumplings. We ordered two of them for 3 people and it was plenty of food. It comes with an additional soup at the end. The view of the bell tower from... More

Dumplings aren't really my thing, but I can't help but praise the extraordinary number of different dumplings available at this restaurant. There were black squid ink dumplings, miniature dumplings in soup (the number you received inside the soup was special as well, like a little prophecy) and dumplings shaped like monkeys and ducks. Each dumpling was announced by our polite... More

This is one of the highlights in my Xian trip. I was really excited to know that I will be dining in this rich historical restaurant. I was not disappointed! The dumplings were flavourful and beautifully made. I had attached some pictures below. I strongly recommend the duck flavoured and pork dumpling. The small pearl sized chrysanthemum dumplings are also... More

Actually in China, espcially in recent 20years, the longer history local-folk snacks- restaurant has, the more inferior taste it will be...which is a very very regretful fact our chinese people has to confess...

I like this restaurant as they serve different types of dumplings. It is possible to take different type of menu or one type of dumplings. Some of the dumplings looks like duck, so very special look also very tasty. I recommend! Moer you can find on jolifestyle .ocm
