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

This was a truly wonderful dinner. They didn't have brown rice, but the PHO was amazing and the chicken rolls were the best Iv'e ever had, and only 3 dollars for a generous portion! Great service as well.

So when you eaten as much seafood and chowder as we did, it was a time for a change! Being in the Marina area, we had tried a few other "establishments", but we really wanted to eat a bowl of noodles. Okay, this is not fine dining, there are no tablecloths, about 5 booths, and about 5 tables and a... More

This is not a Monterey Tourist Experience restaurant. The Noodle Bar is strictly a locals only as I doubt any tourist would find the back side of a 40 year old budget strip mall/shopping center a point of interest on any vacation trek. But for locals it is worth the quick trip to Marina. Family run and it shows. The... More
