Is this shop at Smith Street? Thought it is at one of the shop lots at the Food Street... The la mian was good, especially the hot and sour la mian. We also had the Shanghainese dumplings, which was very tasty with lots of soup in the dumplings (most places have very little soup). We liked those 2 dishes best,... More

I ordered a bowl of mince noodles (S$6.80) and a fried donpline (S$8.80). However, the waitress asked me for $21.00. When I questioned it, she told me that there was 10% surcharge for eating inside and the rest were for wet towels and one pickled vegetable. I didn't want any pickled vegetable but the waitress forced me to have it.

Ever since Smith Street closed down for renovation, I've been deeply worried if Lan Zhou La Mian would still be one of its tenants. Boy am I glad it is. Yes there has been a price hike, but blame it on the increase in rental (heard from the owner that it's double now). The food does not disappoint. Till now,... More

I was a huge fan of Lan Zhou La Mian. 6 whole months of endless waiting for the renovation works to be done and I was treated to a nicely decorated, air-conditioned place with increased prices! Gone were the days where you enjoyed your meal under a cooling fan or pay nett prices. Now, 10% service charge is applicable and... More

I go here for the noodles all the time, with a side of vegetables and dumplings. They serve extraordinary handmade noodles and good dumplings. The only reason that I'm giving Lanzhou La Mian 4/5 instead of 5/5 is that they immediately give you horrible, substandard pickles and a wet towel and charge quite a fee for them - half the... More

Ordered a bowl of mince pork noodles, the portion was so small that it only occupies a quarter of the bowl. They also forced you to pay for the wet towel even when I said I don't need it. The wet towel cost double than any other restaurants in Singapore.

My favourite little hidden gem on this island! Found it entirely by accident 3 years ago and now go back regularly. Whenever I have visitors I take them here and returners always want to go again. It's not fancy (somewhere between a hawker and a restaurant) but the food is what it is all about. The noodles are top notch... More

Yes, the noodles may be tasty and you may want to take a picture of a chinese pulling the dough in front of you, but the prices are quite high (5.80 S$ for a small handfull of noodles). Also, the waitress will try to persuade you to buy more expensive dishes and drinks. A little appetizer, which is served unrequested,... More

This is not fine dining! This is a hole in this wall, blink and you'll miss it, noodle shop in Smith Street (some times called "Eat Street") in Singapore's Chinatown. They serve tasty hand pulled noodles and delicious dumplings. Cold beer also. This is not the place to go if you prefer glitz and glamour, it is the place to... More
