The Terracotta Warriors in front of the restaurant were shipped from China.

The Mausoleum of Qin Shi Huang (the first Emperor of China) and Terracotta Warriors were included in the “World Heritage List” in December of 1987. The Mausoleum is located in Lintong, 35 kilometers east of Xi’an, Shaanxi. It was built from 246 B.C. To 208 B.C. by the first Emperor of China - Qin Shi Huang. It was also the first emperor mausoleum in Chinese history. Its huge scale and rich sacrificial objects make it the largest imperial mausoleum. According to historical records, Qin Shi Huang recruited 700000 craftsmen to build the mausoleum and the construction lasted for 38 years. The mausoleum is divided into two parts: the cemetry area and the funerary area. The cemetry covers an area of nearly 8 square kilometers and it consists of an interior city and an exterior city. The exterior of the mausoleum is a low earth pyramid with a wide base. The original hight of the sealing earth has been weathered down from 115 meters to 76 meters. The tomb is 350 meters long from south to north and 345 meters wide east to west, covering an area of 120750 square meters with a great amount of ground architectural monuments and sacrificial objects remained. The coffin of Qin Shi Huang is placed in the center of the Underground Palace of the tomb. The tomb is surrended by around 400 burial pits and satellite tombs with a wide range of 56.25 square kilometers. The burial pits mainly consist of pits for bronze chariots, horses, rare birds and animals, stables and terracotta warriors.
