Lanzhou is the capital and largest city of Gansu Province in Northwest China. The prefecture-level city, located on the banks of the Yellow River, is a key regional transportation hub, connecting areas further west by rail to the eastern half of the country. Historically, it has been a major link on the Northern Silk Road. The city is also a center for heavy industry and petrochemical industry. Lanzhou was previously ranked as one of the cities with the worst air quality in the world, due to industrial pollution and its situation in a narrow river valley. Government measures to reduce the pollution have had their effect, and in 2015 the city was awarded China's climate progress title.

We have noodle stands selling so-called Lanzhou Raman (兰州拉面) back at home, but this time I HAD THE REAL DEAL at Mazilu!
When arrived in Lanzhou pretty early and this was one of the handful restaurants that open early. The dining hall was filled with mouth-watering smell and the waiters' yelling and shouting (for taking orders and serving food, not arguing :P) added a lively vibe to this cold morning.
The noodles were served in separated bowls and dishes. One was the big bowl with soup and noodles, the boiled beef was in a plate, and there were 3 other plates for side dishes, including pickle and shredded kelp. Back at home, we have almost everything inside one big bowl and I found this new way gave us a fresh and wholesome taste: You get to appreciate all the tastes as the way they should be, not mixed-up.
The serving portion was quite generous, too. One big bowl was enough for two girls. The price was reasonable and honest, it cost the four of us about 40 RMB for one never-forgettable breakfast!

We were taken here recently to a private dining room by our business partners.
Great atmosphere in the restaurant, very busy - but it had good service. Excellent range of Chinese food which came quickly. They also have their own GouBuLi beer which we enjoyed.
The food isn't that spicy - although I'm sure you could ask for more chilli. There's a good range of cold food (pickles etc)/ I thought their speciality dumplings were delicious, although I have seen that others were underwhelmed we loved them.
