Noodles. Nothing beats them! Cold day? Noodles. Feeling sad? Noodles. Few too many drinks last night? Noodles. They're the perfect dish for any occasion. Biang Biang on Queen Street brings the traditional cuisine of Xi'an to the heart of the city. The menu features a wide variety of dishes from the region, including stews, noodles and hotpots. We highly recommend their signature Biang Biang noodles served with a generous helping of chilli on top.

Unexpected fact about Biang Biang: their noodles are hand-pulled fresh every day. Watch the incredible chef as he throws, swings and stretches the noodles out right in front of your eyes!
