“In search of a new Chinese resturant”
Reviewed 7 April 2012

Since our favourite resturant shut down, (the owners retired at the Thai resturant in Swanley village) we have been looking for a new Chinese or Thai we can take the family.
I've found the trip adviser app fantastic for this. I picked out the xian as it isn't too far from us and it had fantastic reveiws.
We arrive at 6.30pm last Saturday and it was buzzing with people, a lively atmosphere and a good feel to the place.
Staff were very polite and did their job, always keeping an eye on you and getting you more drinks etc.
Food was great, starters were best and good quality and freshly cooked. Lots of different things on the menu and wanted to try them all. My favourite was probably aubergines in sea spices sauce (I think that's what it was called) and the dim sum was very tasty.
Nice to find a good Chinese. So many awful places around and I'm glad there's still a few good ones out there.

“Best Chinese Ever”
Reviewed 21 March 2012

We go to Xian as often as we can - the food is absolutely wonderful. Book early as its always packed. The food, staff and ambience is great especially Victor - the owner - lovely guy. I wont eat in any other chinese restaurant - nothing compares to Xian :)
