Usually pop here for lunch as a little less formal that the also good Hakka below. On arrival, greeted by the owner and team, offered Chinese beer and given the encompassing, but interesting menu. If unsure just let them decide for the table, you won't be disappointed!. Food fresh and cooked before you, great range of flavours and textures. You... More

There are few places where we so consistently enjoy ourselves so much. This is a top floor informal top quality quick innovative and entirely tasty cafe/restaurant. If you catch the formula and enter then you're guaranteed a great lunch or supper. Noodles are incidental but necessary. The magic is to come in a group and get a wide selection of... More

We took advice from other reviewers and were guided by the staff/waitress and went for a wide selection and were not disappointed. We ended up with a large bowl of noodles and five different dishes - all of which just exploded with individual flavours! The noodles were sensational!! Oh! Just wonderful!..... The atmosphere was really nice too - a hot... More

Owner was on had to greet us and the advice on what dishes to select was friendly and very helpful. Food came in a flash freshly cooked and delicious. aAs you might expect from a place called the noodle lounge the singapore noodles were fresh and well spiced. An unpretentious relaxed place this is an ideal place to grab a... More

Top floor informal Chinese place. Entirely laid back. You must eat communally with a good selection of big plates. Can't fault it.

It worth walking all the way up to the top floor to eat a savory Singaporean Rice Noodle with a dish of stir fry Chinese green vegetable. The BBQ pork rice is also very good.

Top floor but there is a lift. Casual and gregarious. Very tasty well cooked and presented communal eating. Probably our favourite regular choice in Plymouth. Good value. Be guided by the staff. Go for a wide selection. You can even leave the choices entirely to the waitress or Jonny the owner.

We often eat at the noodle lounge, known by locals as 'Jonny Wongs'. It's not easy to see from the street, located on 3rd floor (they have a lift). The food is very good. Fresh, not gloppy Chinese like you find in many. It is the only place I'd eat Chinese/Cantonese in Plymouth. Potential downside is you can guarantee all... More

On a visit to Plymouth our friends suggested here. It's a small,very simplistic restaurant. No table cloths, just wipe and go. I liked being able to see the kitchen and the chef at work or should that be wok?! Food was fresh, fast and tasty. Prices were OK and it was popular with the Chinese population of Plymouth that evening... More
