“Good food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

I like this place for healthy Chinese. Service is fast, the food is good and healthy. They offer brown rice. They always deliver the food very fast. Is a good place to meet people because it is not too loud but is a little dark.

“A Chinese bargain in Beverly Hills”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2014

Had a chance to visit Xian with the family for a family style dinner.
The host was very good, hospitable and nice
The waiter left a bit to be desired, rushing, and not very personable.
The food was the best part of it. being a group of six we had a chance to sample quite a bit of the menu. The noodles were invariably great. all dishes we ordered from chicken, to shrimp , to beef were really good and reasonable size.
The biggest surprise was the bill which was, for the first time, much less than was expected for the amount of food & quality of the food in Beverly Hills specially when compared with other Chinese restaurants in the area who do not serve tastier food.
I really recommend it if you like Chinese food and willing to tolerate the waiters.

“Lousy!!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2014

This is possibly the worst chinese I have been to for many years! Seriously I've had better food in Panda Express! Lukewarm and tasteless. Nothing tasted fresh and quite frankly most of it tasted frozen. Not what I expected for our first night in BH and I will be telling the hotel concierge to be cautious about recommending this place to other guests!!

“Totally disappointing...cold food & atmosphere...on Valentines day!!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2014

Food was bland, cold and arrived out of sequence. Portions were good but it lacked quality, style and presentation. There was no explanation of the menu, or any ideas if there were any specials and the whole a service experience was random but tried hard. Petals on the table was a nice touch but it seemed it was all to much for what appears to be a tired restaurant!

“Just Normal; Nothing Special; Not sure why it is crowed must have loyal customers”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

We were not impressed. Bland food with no taste. Portions are average. Pricing is average to the high side. This is your normal Chinese - American Restaurant. I would not repeat. Consider other options in walking distance including other Asian Fusion or Chinese-American and few almost Authentic Chinese places skip this place unless there is something on the menu you can't find at another place. The Shrimp Toast reminded me of Shrimp Paste you can find at Dim Sum or Shrimp Ball on a Sugar Cane at a Vietnamese place. Your money can be spent elsewhere. If you must go, I recommend eating at the Bar.
