They didn't have half their menu available. Why bother going if that's the case?
Half of the menu was unavailable and what's offered is bland and unimpressive. Save your money and go elsewhere.
Sorry to give a bad review but this place was a disappointment. I was really hoping that it could potentially be like a Xian Famous Foods type of joint, but there's no comparison. It doesn't even seem like they tried at all to impress. The food was underwhelming to say the least and I could probably make better stuff at home than what they served. I had low expectations given the current Yelp reviews but still wanted to try this place as I love Xian food. I ordered via HungryPanda app when they had a one day only half off promotion. The total came out to be about $25 with the promotion and even then I felt like it wasn't worth it. I think they have a main/sister restaurant in Rockville and thought they have to be doing well to open a second outlet in Fairfax... Roujiamo Burger: The meat was bland and the buns were hard. Mount Qi Noodles: Noodles looked like the typical store bought kind and the portion was small. Sauce was just plain vinegary/sour. Potato and carrot cubes were meh. Hot Chili Oil Seared Noodles: Underwhelming. The hot chilly oil was neither spicy nor fragrant nor bold. Lamb Pita Soup: Bland soup. 1-2 chunk of lamb meat which the guy at the front had to carefully measure/portion on the scale. The soaked pita was nothing special and tasted just like eating soggy bread/bun. Liangpi: Really wanted to try it but they were out.
Dined in; ordered the noddles and the burger. All the bowls and utensils were all disposables... Very little meat in the noodles. The restaurant doesn't have forks... Noodles were poor. The burger was surprisingly good. But it tastes like carnitas in a chinese toasted bun. Probably won't come back again...
Delicious authentic Xi'an food! Had the 肉夹馍 (pork stuffed bread) and the 羊肉泡沫 (Lamb soup with bread) and both tasted exactly how I remembered from Xi'an. The food tasted very similar to what you would get from the street food shops in 回民街 (Muslim quarter) in Xi'an. Definitely would recommend.
Same as others' comments. The portion is so small. Not worth it. Try some other places
Drove 20 mins to pick up my Pita Bread Soaked in Lamb soup羊肉泡馍. Didn’t expect that I had to cook it myself. I was told to boil my soup and noodles for 6-7 minutes. I suppose the chef wants to ensure the flavor and tenderness of the food. But they might forget that for Chinese food takeout, people are looking for convenience. The lamb was frozen. And the worst part, the lid of soup container wasn’t fully closed. 3 stars for supporting this new restaurant but for a takeout food, it is a disaster.
Rougamo / Pickled Garlic _ Perfect
I am from XI'an and I am so happy to find a restaurant from my city. I've tried the cold noodles, meat burger, and the Qishan noodles. I like all of them, but the meat burger especially is my favorite. It was a lot of juicy delicious meat and definitely filled all my stomach! The boss was super friendly as well. Looking forward to try other dishes in the future. Recommend it!
I’m impressed by the restaurant for its courage to sell such unpalatable noodles. LOL.
smells very authentic lamb smell walking in.
Vey authentic Chinese food. Taste great. Love the Pork burger and spicy noodle. The place is simple, but very clean. You can sit in or take out.
Came to the Korean BBQ but the wait was long. Tried the biang biang noodles, Chinese pork burger, and lamb pita bread soup. Favorite was the pork burger. 10/10. Killed this in few minutes. Biang biang noodles were good but not really familiar with this dish. Probably 7/10 The soup was really good and the meat was very good too. Didnt love the cluster of pita bread. But i would give it 8.5/10 But try the pork burger
You can probably skip this restaurant as they are just sending me frozen food and a soup. It tastes awful. For the owner of this restaurant, you can close it if you just want to send customers frozen food that they can buy from gerocery store .
A small set of offerings, and all of them are good
