The Silk Road Restaurants

Lao Sun Jia Restaurant (lǎo sūn jiā fàn zhuāng)

Updated 03/05/2013

Fodor's Review

This traditional, family-run affair has been serving some of the best local Islamic lamb and beef specialties since 1898; it's become so popular that it's grown into a small Xian chain. The decor isn't special, but the food is popular with Xian's large Muslim community. A few famous offerings, such as the roasted leg of lamb or the spicy mutton spareribs, are pricey, but most dishes are inexpensive. Try pao mo, the mutton and bread soup. Ask for an English menu.
