The food is fresh and delicious. The price of shipping is very prohibitive.
delicious and pretty easy to make!
Delicious and so much fun! Makes for a great date night or a night with friends.
Delivery was prompt! Kit came with very clear instructions. We had fun pulling the noodles. My husband really enjoyed it; we are no longer in New York City, so a taste of our old neighborhood was a fun treat!
It was awesome! I don't think I was the best at noodle pulling but it didn't even matter!! was so tasty. Leave yourself some extra time the instructions say 15-20 mins, but be sure your noodle dough is room temp it makes all the difference!
Yum! Please open up locations in Boston!
Xi’an noodle kits have become a staple for our holiday celebrations! Our daughter calls them “slappy noodles” because she gets to slap them on the counter. She’s adopted from China and loves eating authentic Chinese food. We discovered them a few years back and now order them for Christmas and for her birthday. They are delicious!
has become a family tradition. great time and great food
Made at home! Pretty easy to follow directions, ends up just like at one Xian’s Noodle Houses. Way worth the cost, we’ll be doing this dinner often!❤️
This is our third time ordering the noodles. It is our new Thanksgiving weekend tradition. The laughter when we all try to 'slap' or 'spank' the noodles is contagious and part of the experience! I would suggest editing the instructions to include a note that to reduce the spiciness you should reduce the amount of chili oil!
Great product and easy to prepare. Miss the celery, though. Added some nice texture.
Best noodles ever!!!
This is my forth time getting this amazing kit. It just gets easier to make. Don't even think, just get it!
Perfectly packaged with clear ingredients and high-quality ingredients. I've already placed my second order!
Delicious! A piece of NYC delivered to the West Coast!
I've been enjoying Xian Famous Foods ever since they moved into Midtown at least once a week for lunch. Unfortunately they closed all locations close to my Midtown office. I ordered the spicy tingly beef meal kit and was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to prepare and the taste was exactly what I remember. It arrived cold and well packed. Thanks for offering this at a fair price Jason.
I'll be ordering again soon.
So tasty that my eyes watered.
Tastes just like it in the stores! Was intimidated with the noodle pulling part but it was easy! Detailed instructions and ingredients were all very fresh. Even splurged and ordered another kit (lamb) to ship home to my parents in Texas!
It was amazing as usual!! However, I wish they offered the selection of dates to be shipped like they did in the past.
This was our third time ordering the meal kit. Noodle day never disappoints. Fantastic as always.
I was craving Xian soooo bad after I moved away from NYC. There was a location beneath my apartment in Nolita and I ate there almost every night when I lived there. It tasted exactly like I remember, and 100% satisfied my craving - all the way in Colorado! Will order again, and again, and again!
So much fun as well as delicious!
Quick delivery & fresh ingredients!
Got this as a gift from a friend. Really liked the quality of the ingredients and how everything was packaged. Never made my own pulled noodles but it was a great experience. We had a lot of fun, and the food was delicious. Thanks for having this!
What can I say except I love X'ian. I would literally eat there everyday if I still lived in Manhattan. I am so thankful that it has great kits that arrive within two days. The kits allow me to still enjoy all the pleasure of X'ian. I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant and its service.
My order was delayed the first time by UPS, And once they arrived they had spoiled based on the lengthy travel time and heat, so the CEO sent out a new order for us! And they arrived, and they were delicious! We will order the spicy tingly beef again soon!!!
This is the second kit I've ordered and first beef kit. It was delicious and so easy to prepare. I love that Xi'an Famous Foods offers them! Thank you for all you do!
Such a fun and delicious meal! Love making the noodles, and all the leftovers for the rest of the week.
such a fun/delicious treat! highly reccomend
These are super fun! We had a blast slapping the noodles. It was an easy, quick, fun, and very tasty dinner. Just be careful with the spiciness -- one package of chili oil was enough for us (we like mild to medium spice). If we'd used all 4, I don't think we could have eaten it. We will do these again.
It was very good but all of the pieces of meat contained cartilage.
Great stuff, fun to play with! My favorite beef noodle - mirror the exact flavor when I had it back in NYC!
My only complaint is Xi’an Famous Food doesn’t have a physical store in California -^-
It was so much fun! I had a blast with my boyfriend making them. Will definitely buy again.
So delicious and so much fun to make at home! Delivery came as expected and everything was packaged well. 10/10!!
This was a gift for my brother and SIL and they loved it! Slapped some noodles on the counter and had a great time doing it. Their kids aren't so into the spicy so they put some miso broth they had over the noodles for the kids and that was great. Thank you!
Fantastic from start to finish!
This is the fourth time we have done this and it has been 10/10 every time. Fun date night dinner and easy. Tastes soo good and I love the spice.
Somehow this is as good as it is from the restaurant (which is to say it’s GOOOOOOD). We were so so impressed. It was really fun and quick to put together and tasted amazing.
Delicious, quick, and fun to make!
Really fun and easy to make!
Tastes almost as good as in the store!
Everything arrived and turned out just as good as if you were to buy it in their restaurant. We no longer live in midtown Manhattan, but knowing I can order Xi'an and have it shipped in a matter of days is one of the best news of 2022 for me.
Thank you so much Jason!
Fun to make and really delicious. My children's tolerance for hot spice is low so I only used only 1 oil package. I save the others for use with vegetables.
Love these meal kits. They are generous in portion, easily made, easy to add veggies too, great for hosting a fun night with friends who may or may not have pulled noodles before, and delicious. I love them and highly recommend them to people. Usually the chili oil is generous enough you can use some for other dishes too!
Shipping is easy and the food is well packed and holds up to shipping really well. The instructions are good to follow and even if you mess up this is forgiving because all the hard part is done.
Love making this dish! Restaurant quality but not too complicated to make at home. Absolutely delicious.
Clear instructions. Fun to pull. Easy to cook and mix. DELICIOUS to eat!
So much fun and tasted even better!
Super delicious, this is my favorite meal kit. Also tried the lamb noodles but I like the taste of this better. Noodle kit is very easy to use, I order two at a time to get a discount since shipping is $$$. I put the second set of meat and noodles in the freezer and the quality is unchanged. This was my second order and I will likely order again!
Super fun and easy to make, and delicious!
The meal kit arrived on the requested day and was fresh and ready to make! This is a very spicy dish so go easy on the chili oil and taste before adding too much! This is a fun and delicious family meal! Enjoy!
The noodles are amazing. I have ordered them multiple times and love it every time!
Every ingredient we needed was in the kit and fresh! Such a fun and tasty experience! Will definitely do this again.
I’ve been a huge fan for several years, I get the N2 90% of the time at the stores, and just by watching the video and following the simple instructions, I nailed it at home! It was just as if I were enjoying it on 8th & 15th.
We ordered the meal kits a few times and they are excellent. Fun to prepare with friends and delicious fresh meals are great. Order a kit and have a blast.
Large portions and tastes pretty close to in-store quality
I think this meal kit gives good value for money compared to a lot of meal kits from other vendors. The stew was tasty and the noodles were easy to pull. The produce included was good quality. One portion filled me up more than the store portion, which was already pretty generous. I felt like the chili oil might be a bit milder than at the restaurant, but it's not a big deal.
Maybe it messes up the logistics, but I think a lot of people would probably enjoy a sampler kit of the different flavors they offer.
I normally go to a Xi'an Noodle spot near my place in Seattle but with the pandemic they have been closed (also don't like the take out bc the noodles get overdone). THIS WAS SO GOOD! Noodles were easy to bang out....quick, included everything you needed and was no fuss.
Can't have enough
it serves all the spicy vibes in minutes with the most aromatic cooking.
Definitely re- re- re- reorder
I lived in Xi'an for 10 years. When I came back to the US I missed fresh noodles so much! A friend bought us this kit and we absolutely LOVED it! Not only were the flavors on point, but we got to make the noodles ourselves, just like they do it in Xi'an noodle shops all the time. It was a great experience!
Next best thing to eating in-store
It's easy to make, and you get better at pulling the noodles once you have some practice. I don't eat red meat, so I grilled a chicken cutlet, cut it up, and threw that into my noodles. My son used my beef to double his own portion.
You'll want someone to video you pulling the noodles!
Amazing quarantine noodles
I bought this after buying the Xi'an Famous Foods cook book but not wanting to go through the trouble of making everything from scratch. The beef stew is delicious and the noodles are very fun to pull. This is a great value for what you end up getting - enough noodles for at least 4 meals (or 6-8 meals if you're a light eater).
Fun and tasty!
A ton of fun to make! We were nervous about pulling the noodles and it was pretty easy and a ton of fun for a date activity! Also pretty tasty at the end :)
Definitely lived up to its reputation!
I'd only recently heard about XFF and the meal kits. I was intrigued. My order arrived right on time. The portions are very generous! And the meals are tasty, as well as fun to make. We loved it! And we will order again.
Having moved out of NYC as a long time Xian fan the past few months have been tough so could not have been happier to see the meal kits available. Whole process absolutely exceeded expectations. Everything was packaged perfectly, cooking process was easy, noodles were fun and easy to make, and taste might have even been better than in-store (or at least a 10/10 replication for someone whose been Xian starved for months). Big portions and great value, tough to beat. Would recommend to anyone and will be ordering another kit immediately!
Delicious and Fun!
I had been craving XFF for months, so just my luck I stumbled upon these meal kits! The portions are very generous at a great price point, and the food is delicious - just like from the restaurant. The best part? It's easy and fun to make. What a treat it is to cook something I never would have managed to make on my own while also getting a laugh out of slapping those noodles around. Definitely a high point in a depressing period of time. Thanks XFF! Keep it up.
Cannot recommend enough
During quarantine, I missed Xian's sooooo much. I have bought the dumplings and these noodles. These kits have far surpassed my expectations from delivery alert, to service, packaging, and deliciousness. I will be buying again, now that I tested out the noodle pulling. Had a blast making this.
Fantastic meal kit!
Good amount of food for the price. Very tasty and easy to make. I agree with other reviewers though that it would be awesome if the servings could be split in half so that we could freeze one half for later, rather than having to eat all 4 servings one after the other. I would order more if we could freeze part of it for later consumption.
Amazing how good it was!
We were super impressed at how good it all turned out! Great exercise, too, slapping those noodles around. Now I see there are also dumplings, I'll need to get some of those too, next time.
The one thing that in retrospect would have been better is if the stew and the noodles had each been split into two packages, so that we could freeze half and not have the meal twice in one week. Better to space it out. I don't know if those noodles are amenable to freezing, but if they could be, I would put half into the freezer. But the stew -- I wouldn't want to refreeze it once it's been defrosted. Hence the request to receive two, smaller containers. Maybe that's just me.
So good... missed you much XFF!
Everything about this is amazing. Smooth delivery and ETA is communicated about an hour prior. Cooking instructions are easy to follow and everything is packaged well - fun to make (makes you temporarily feel like a fancy chef when you smack the noodles) and so delicious... a close alternative to eating in store :) Also feel like portions are bigger than served in store, so this is totally worth it. Will be glad to order again!
The meal kits are a great idea during Covid. Lots of communication before and at drop off. The kit was easy to use, had fun pulling to noodles together with the family and the final dishes were delicious. Will definitely order again!
Quarantining and Noodling
Delicious almost as good as when they make them.
Fun and delicious
We didn't quite finesse the noodle pulling to an adequate length, nor the slapping so they were bit thick and heavy - but we just boiled them a little longer, and the dish still came out delicious! Thanks to the amazing combo of ingredients and sauces it came with, we were worried about the noodles, but it really is fail-proof!
It really is excellent
An easy and fun meal kit. Turns out just like in the restaurant. If you've been missing this food, order it right now.
So nice to have this meal at home.
The kit was easy to follow and the resulted in a delicious meal. I’m definitely going to reorder!
Best meal kit ever!
It's a meal, and an activity! The instructions were great, the ingredients were quality, and it was a ton of fun to learn how to pull noodles at home. Plus, the whole thing turned out super delicious. Highly recommend for anyone who loves Xi'an Famous Foods.
Just Like the Restaurant!
I love going to XFF for delicious food and have been sad not to be able to while they've been closed. This meal kit was the perfect solution. It was very simple to put together and tasted exactly like the dish I would get at the restaurant! I did have trouble getting the noddles to be as long as the directions suggested but the dish was tasty nonetheless. I will definitely be ordering the meal kit again and can't wait see what other dished they might offer! Thanks XFF!
This is much more than a kit, it's PERFECTION.
thank you xi'an food - i have been waiting and waiting for you to re-open for takeout so when i saw this meal kit, i decided to give it a try. While, i didn't quite achieve the suggested "
four foot stretch" but, i did pretty well and made sure to 'hand pull' the noodles in multiple directions to keep them thin and luscious. it tasted just like at the restaurant. the directions were easy to follow, all the ingredients were included (some very generously i might note) and i am truly grateful for this. Shih Shih.
