Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A chain noodle shop very popular among locals. In meal times you have to queue to pay, queue to wait for your bowl of noodle, and then try to find a vacant seat to enjoy. Price's are really good. No English menu though.

We had our best meal in China at East Wheat in Datong. Our driver brought us here when we asked him to take us to the place he would really like to go to. Not knowing Chinese, we asked him to order for us, supplementing...the order with a side of vegetables and soymilk. The handmade noodles were perfectly cooked, and the rich vegetable broth they were in was light and delicious. The side dish of vegetables was perfectly cooked and spiced and the soymilk was among the best we've ever had. And all this for about 30RMB for three adults. East Wheat is a small noodle restaurant that appears to be primarily for locals. We were the only non-Chinese there and got curious looks on our visit. It's clean and friendly, and definitely worth going out of the way for. Highly recommended.More

Best noodles ever!!!!! In all honesty, I was kind of glad my kids wouldn't eat theirs so that I could. The shop itself is very small and kind of hard to find without gps, but I'm glad we found it. The owners were so cute...and friendly. The food was delicious and inexpensive--SO inexpensive. We all (2 families with 3 kids each) barely fit into their shop, but we managed. Had a great time and great food here! Please eat here if you ever go to DatongMore

We spent a few days in Datong with friends, 6 kids between our two families. We had eaten out a few times, and wanted to find a good place with the local, famous food to Datong... the Shanxi Noodles... and this looked like the place...to find. Of course, the only reviews were in Chinese and didn't translate well. They looked to be good reviews. So we went on a hunt... only to find that the place we ended up HAD to be this restaurant, but no English name to confirm. Having lived in China for about 3 years already, places like this don't scare us. This was a real China, hole in the wall, noodle joint. Nothing fancy. No luxuries here. If you can't eat with chopsticks, make sure you bring a fork along. Don't expect the owners to know a word of English, and expect lots of commotion over your being there is you are a foreigner. I get the impression that not many foreigners walk through their doors. We basically pointed to the noodles, and told them how many we wanted. The small room in the back had a few tables and several stools. The noodles came with a tea egg on top... and they were SOOO delicious! Fresh, chewy texture, and perfectly flavored. All of the kids gobbled them up, and my youngest was scouring the bowls for any traces left behind. If you are a foreigner, please make a point to seek this place out. It is so worth it!! Don't be afraid. Our only regret is that we hadn't been out to find this place a day earlier! I could eat here every day. And you can't beat the price! 9 bowls of noodles, a couple of beers, and several drinks for the kids, and our bill was only 81RMB. I'll let you do the math. :) Don't miss it!More
