    9/6/17- couldn't feel the AC at all, was super hot in the restaurant plus I ordered a spicy dish which made it worse, food is decent, no free water, expected more.

    Sweet and sour spinach dumplings are amazing.

    Hot tip: Biang! Moved to the East V. This is just a normal Xian now, same great food, just no table service.

    Fave place in Flushing. If you like spicy food and hand pulled noodles this is your place. Lamb noodles, cold skin noodles, vegetable skewers, and lamb pao mo are worth traveling for.

    Authentic, delicate ( may only be seated and braised rather than baked and stewed), modest, spicy, interesting, no waiters (counter service only). On the site of the old Biang.

    Sad they changed the dining concept of this place. No wait staff now and the ambience changed to fast paced dining instead of warm and intimate :(

    Very authentic Xi'an food. Try the grilled chicken heart, very special and yummy.. Soft spicy tofu was ok, the tofu could be softer. Overall dining experience was awesome!

    A fancier option in the Liang Pi empire, this place is super tasty, but more expensive than the rest.

    Lots of food I would have never thought to try, but it's all quite good. Lamb face salad and chicken hearts are probably the best things I've had there. I would stay away from the beef tendons though.

    Biang! extends the Xi'an Famous Foods menu in a classier and more comfortable environment. There is nothing better than a bowl of spicy cumin lamb soup noodles on a cold and rainy day.

    Stewed Pork Biang-Biang Noodles were delish, but be aware things run on the spicier side - I was going through water pretty quickly with my "mild" noodles.

    Delicious hand pulled noodles. Got the Spicy Cumin Lamb Noodles "medium" spicy, which was seriously spicy ("hot" might have killed me) and delicious. Try the quail egg appetizer!

    If you love lamb and lots of spice along with spiciness, order the spicy cumin lamb noodles! First time trying this restaurant and the noodle did not disappoint! Small downside: extra $1.25 for soup

    If you love offals, try the pork intestine and chicken heart skewers sprinkled with cumin and chili powder. Also get a yogurt sochu cocktail to take off some of the heat.

    The biang-biang noodles are an obvious choice - it's called Biang! for a reason - but the oxtail is somethin' serious.

    Bring insect repellant. Lots of mosquitos in the backyard seating area. The citronella candles are semi-effective. Duane Reade is 3 blocks away if you forget the DEET.
