    That spicy cumin goat isn't the easier to eat, but damn if ain't worth the fight.

    Synonymous with comfort food and all things good for the soul. You can close your eyes and play order roulette because all of their savory dishes are amazing, even vegetarian options are outstanding.

    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

    Seating can be hard to grab, but the food is worth it!

    Kate · June 21
  • Liza

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

    Liza · June 20
  • Mark M.

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

  • aisha b.

    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

    Tom Joseph · April 29
  • Nick A.

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

    Nick Andlinger · March 23
  • 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.

    Erina Yoshida · March 20
  • 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

    Rob Martinez · March 16
  • 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

    So good, your Chinese food fix for cheap when you're in the east village

    Spicy Hot Oil Seared Hand-Ripped Noodles: $5.50 / Liang Pi Cold Skin Noodles: $4.50

    Tingly noodles are amazing. Eat them quickly as they congeal in about 15 minutes.

    Lee Byron · January 10
  • Dan E.

    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
