    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

    Liza · June 20

    Liang Pi cold skin noodles are a spicy version of heaven.

    The food is good and cheap, not too fancy but nice

  • Tom J.

    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

  • Nick A.

    Everything is good. Step outside the box and order something new.

  • Erina Y.

    Try the cumin lamb w pulled noodles! My go-to dish for here. I also like their jasmine tea but note that it comes sweet.

  • Rob M.

    Liang pi and pork burger every day for the rest of my life. Queens, brooklyn, Manhattan... I can feel xian closing in and I'm not mad

  • Serious Eats

    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.

    Serious Eats · February 11
  • Honghui Y.

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

    Honghui Yu · January 28

    Chang-an Spicy Tofu

    Dan Echlin · January 1
  • Jeff S.

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

    Jeff Savage · December 26, 2014
  • David R.

    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).

    David Riordan · December 25, 2014
  • ZZubin

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

    ZZubin · December 16, 2014
  • Alice

    Spicy cumin lamb noodles with the soy milk!

    Alice · December 14, 2014
  • Paloma O.

    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

    Paloma Ortiz · December 9, 2014
  • Trudy L.

    Noodles were slurptastic! Great after a workout, but there was limited seating and tables needed a wipe down.

    Spicy cumin lamb pulled noodles are great! They just opened yet another outpost on e 78th I think. Try the Chinese soda!

    Try the oxtail soup. The meat is so tender and delicious. Also, the spicy cumin dishes are outstanding.
