Every Bruin is sure to be nostalgic for this joint soon after they graduate.

We have been here twice (4 people), and have ordered different dishes each time. Every item was excellent, and my kids are picky! Service is fast and attentive, prices are reasonable (considering the location), and they have a nice variety of Asian cuisines. Westwood is a fun neighborhood, but Noodle World is one of the few non-fast food options there... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the food here. The variety was excellent too - many different ethnic groups to choose from. The service was attentive, and the prices are VERY reasonable too!

This place was Noodle Planet they took out the planet mobile to become World. It is always bustling probably because of its good value and fast Asian style food: Thai, Chinese, and Vietnamese. The service is hit and missed. I ordered spicy chow fun it was plain sweet, and we asked for water they never came until we asked again.... More

Noodle Planet has become a regular lunch spot for me in Westwood. They have a very extensive menu and large eating area so even during the busiest times there are still places to sit. From classic chinese soups to incredible vietnamese Pho soups this place really does have it all. The only downside is that they only take cash which... More

I love their charbroiled pork chops with rice, I can make 2 meals out of one order. Noodle soups are quite good also, but the helpings are not as big. Only complaint: cash only.

It's not a place for a 1st date or romantic night. It's a "cafeteria" style seating with decent service. What you will get is decent food for a great price. Try their planet noodle pho if you like spicy soup. Otherwise their fried rice and phad Thai is good as well.

With limited selection in Westwood - this ends up be a bit of a default cheap noodle place
