    Don't see what the hype is... I mean it's okay. Have had much better food in Chinatown/Flushing.

    I think I'm the only customer that doesn't speak Chinese. That's a very good sign. This place is worth the trip and the wait. Cumin lamb and the dumplings are awesome!

    First timers can't go wrong with N4/NS4(w/soup). Also they take spice very seriously, go with medium or mild. Last but not least wear a bib or bring a spare t-shirt! Things get messy #slurping

    Overrated. Cumin lamb burger was okay - bun was oversized and dry. Too much noodles and not enough meat

    Prices have gone up since many of the reviews here were posted, but all dishes are still under $10. The N1 (spicy cumin lamb noodles) is tasty and comes in a thick layer of oil

    Best destination for the food of the Chinese city of Xi'an. Try the chewy liang pi noodles or "lamb face" salad, all doused in their alluringly fiery house sauces.

    Good and cheap noodles abound at this tiny sliver of a restaurant. The lamb and beef noodles in soup are the best.

    "Extra spicy" here just means extra chili oil. Wish they'd just load on the chilis by themselves.

    Noodles that don't leave you with a craving, but rather a hungering that you will spend the rest of your life seeking again. Can't go wrong with cumin lamb noodles (in or out of soup).

    Lang pi noodles are definitely interesting but unconventional. for those looking for something more prototypical done very well try the lamb burger

    The dumplings are really good! If you are a vegetarian who loves spicy food, try the dumplings in broth or the veggie noodle soup! Good stuff
