“Exceptional, hand-pulled biang biang noodles” are the star turn at this “no-frills diner” near Russell Square, where an “unprepossessing” exterior gains access to a menu of “subtle, interesting and authentic regional Xi’an cuisine”. “The prices are very reasonable for the West End.” Proprietor Wei Guirong also runs Xi’an Impression near Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
