Turpan Restaurant information
This huge place attracts the local Huí hordes, who flock here for the big, juicy and succulent lamb kebabs (nothing like the tiny skewers sold on the streets). Then there's the array of authentic Uighur dishes from far-off Xīnjiāng, such as salted beef rolls with sweet yam (¥46), as well as a selection of Halal choices.
You'll need to order the roasted whole lamb in advance, but we think the roast lamb leg with spices is a bargain at ¥58. Try and come here in a group; it's by far the best way to experience this restaurant. Picture menu.
