    Underrated item: dumpling soup. Ask nicely and they will do half lamb half veg!

    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.

    Take a break from the lamb and give the spicy and tingly beef a try.

    Try Spicy Hot Oil Seared Hand-Ripped Noodles. "A hefty plate of hand-torn carbs stir-fried in red-hot chili oil, scallions, cumin and spices until every inch is coated in a thin film of liquid heat. Read more

    Get the Spicy Cumin Lamb Noodles!! Soo good. I usually can handle spicy food, but this one is really spicy so get the mild one.

    The spicy and tingly beef in soup is delicious; very spicy, but the beef is really tender and tastes fantastic. The noodles are also great! (And they can reduce the spice if you want!)

    Go here for Manhattan’s best budget Asian noodles. Slurp up Savory Cumin Lamb Hand-Pulled Noodles for $5 or Liang Pi Noodles for $4. Read more

    The Spicy Cumin Lamb Noodles are phenomenal with or without soup. The pork burger is a must have and it's only $2.50.

    It's safe to say you probably haven't had Chinese food quite like this. From a region that borrows flavors from middle eastern cuisine, everything is cheap and delicious! We recommend the cumin lamb.

    The Cold Skin Noodles are like having a fun bouncy castle in your mouth. I'm not a fan of the gluten cubes though.

    Cheap and delicious. Cumin lamb burger of course. But don't miss out on the oxtail - in any dish.

    It seems Xi'an's only objective is to provide great food for absurdly cheap. The popular Savory Cumin Lamb Burger fills the stomach and only cost a measley $2.50. Read more

    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.

    N4 not spicy is the way to go. Jasmine tea is good too. Lately they started selling soy milk too!

    The noodles are chewily awesome and the different kinds have different spicing even though the names are similar. The soups are pallid by comparison, but the soft tofu and tiger salad are tingly good.

    You can't go wrong with anything that says "cumin lamb." Also love the cucumber salad and zha jiang mian!

    Standard order: lamb burger, pork noodles with soup and the cucumber salad. Can't go wrong though with pretty much everything else though.

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