When I used to work near Shinbashi, once a week I ate at a Chinese noodle shop which served knife-shaved noodles and cooked them right in front of you. These noodles are called Tohshomen and the shop is XI'AN at Yurakucho.

xian マーラー麺
My favorite noodle soup is MAARAA-TOHSHOMEN (Knife-Shaved Noodle in Spicy Chili Oil Soup) for 700 yen. Its not that spicy for real spicy food lovers like me, but if you're not one it will be.

The noodles are flat, wider and shorter than regular chinese noodles or ramen noodles.

If you want something less spicier, but there is TANTAN-TOHSHOMEN (Knife-Shaved Noodle in Szechuan Style Sesame Soup) for 700 yen. Its still a little spicy and is good for beginners.

xian 酸辣刀削麺
If you like hot and sour soup, there is SANRAA-TOHSHOMEN (Knife-Shaved Noodle in Hot and Sour Soup) for 700 yen.

xian 排骨刀削麺
And there is PAA-KOH-TOSHOMEN (Pork Rib & Knife-Shaved Noodle Soup) for 900 yen, which isn't spicy at all.

xian ザーザイご飯
Many customers order ZAHSAI GOHAN (Szechwan Pickles over Rice) for 200 yen with noodles.

xian 鉄鍋餃子
For side dishes they offer XI'AN-FU YAKI GYOZA (X'ian Style Pan Fried Gyoza) for 400 yen. These prices are for lunch and all dishes become 150 yen more expensive during dinner hours.

xian ショーロンポー
They have various side dishes for dinner time like XI'AN XIAOLONGBAO (Xi'an Style Soup Duppling) for 600 yen.

xian 麻辣火鍋
For dinner, they serve MAARAA-HINABE (Spicy Hot Pot) for 2,630 yen per person. It comes with various meats, seafood and vegetables. The hot pot soup is comes in two flavors. Extra spicy and none spicy. It is the most common eaten hot pot in China.

If you want to have real Chinese style knife-shaved noodles, Xi'an is one of the few places that I recommend in Tokyo. There are multiple locations in Tokyo, so check their website and find one near where you are.
