I've been there twice and service is always quick, food is always yummy.. fresh food, not oily or greasy, pretty good sized portions, not over priced.. I really enjoy it.. =) the pho really helped my husband when he had a fever.. small place, but very good and definitely a hidden little hot spot in Marina..

If you can catch them during off hours it is best. It is a popular spot and gets swamped during dinner hours.

This modest small eatery, located behind a market, serves a wide range of noodle dishes and other pleasing soups, entrees, sides and beverages. The ingredients are fresh. The Noodle Bar is very popular with locals, including the college crowd (Cal State- Monterey Bay is close by) so you may have a bit of a wait. The staff is friendly and... More

We tried to eat here 2 days ago but they were closing so only take out was available. I wanted the dining experience so we chose to go elsewhere. We went again the next day ( Tuesday) only to find out they are closed on Tuesdays. Today, well, third time is a charm! :) The place is so busy but... More

We love the dry noodle bowls and spring rolls. We occasionally get Pho but it is so much food! really stick to the 5 spice Dry noodle bowls since it's practically a salad.. They have a good selection of beer and boba drinks. Even a few beers made in Marina. They only take cash which is probably a good thing... More

When we finally tried this place, we were blown away that we were able to get great Vietnamese food on the Monterey Peninsula. I highly recommend this place. I tend to get the dry noodle bowl with the 5 Spice Chicken, which is absolutely awesome. We always start with the pork eggrolls, which are good. They can get very busy... More

I had an eggplant dish which was pretty tasty. Their tofu on vermicelli dish was cloyingly sweet. The quality of the plain white rice was low. I had a lychee boba drink, which was WAY too sweet, and the boba pearls were probably an instant variety. Overall, this is an average restaurant, but if you have a hankering for inexpensive... More
