Went here with family and a friend. Restaurant consisted of many waiters, but I saw other tables trying to get their attention. Food was decent, but I discovered something disgusting in my water.

I visited 101 Noodle Express w/ my mother on Wednesday June 11th. Although mom always orders the same thing: Hot & Sour Soup and Shrimp Noodles, I decided to try something different; Angus Vault w/ Hot-Pot. The Vault w/ small hot-pot was only $14.99 and it was enough food for 2-3 people. It was excellent.... the angus was very tasty... More

The beef roll - two nearly foot long Asian pancakes wrapped with some wonderful beef and greens - is the best wrap of any kind I have tried in any restaurant. It is no wonder that every single table put in for at least one order of this. We also tried their shrimp and pork pot stickers. They were plentiful,... More

Decent food at a good price is hard to find. Unless, you happened to swing by 101 Noodle Express in Alhambra. Come hungry. Very generous portions. I ordered a 3 combo cold appetizer with potstickers. Those potstickers had all the right flavors. It came hot and not greasy. They were perfectly cooked with a nice caramel color on top. The... More

101 Noodle Express (Chinese:魯味居) located on the busy Valley Blvd has been listed as Top Ten by David Chan is the original. It has several chain shops now. Since, the restaurants with similar Northern- China flavor have been spreading throughout out Greater Los Angeles areas, the 101 is not unique anymore(the name 101 implied that it is the first).

The beef roll is definitely the thing to order here. The cold combo platter we had was also really good, so was everything else, except the soup noodle (decent but I've had better elsewhere). I have since returned several times just get take out (beef roll and cold combo platter) and the food is consistently top notch.
