Had a great lunch at the Noodle Bar. Food was great, service was just ok (must have been a bad day), love the bar concept. The negative is the place looked filthy. Bathroom was dirty, and overal the place looks like its time for a top down cleaning. I will go back and hope to find it a bit cleaner... More

As the other reviews say, it's small, so perhaps better for take out, but we ate at the counter and were not disappointed. Friendly owner, quick service, large portions, low prices, and good Vietnamese food. What's not to like? Didn't try the pho, but the 2 noodle dishes we had were great, as was the veggie/tofu stir fry. We'll be... More

This place is a small hole in the wall, and can get crowded around dinner time, but it doesn't stop us. Very 'quick and dirty' service and is very inexpensive, but large portions. It is cash-only though so don't forget money - they have an ATM but who likes to pay fees? =) Don't let the outside intimidate you from... More

Noodle Bar is an experience! Truly it is a little 'hole in the wall' restaurant but it's big on tasty food. We always order a big bowl of Pho (chicken or beef, depending on our mood). Noodle Bar doesn't use MSG so their soup broth is not overly salty like at some Pho restaurants. I usually order a chicken dish... More

I will admit, I'm a pho snob. I went there for the pho, and because of the positive reviews was expecting something decent. But I was hugely disappointed. First off, you have Chinese, not Vietnamese making the pho. It lacked the depth and herbal flavors I'm accustomed to eating. The pho was barely edible. Perhaps some of their other options... More

Having generally been disappointed with poor quality overpriced food whilst on our travels, we thought we'd give Noodles Bar a go based on these reviews. We weren't disappointed. It's more of a takeaway than a restaurant though we did sit at the bar to eat and enjoyed our time. The food was great and reasonably priced (about $12 for a... More

I absolutely love this place. Everything from the spring rolls, wan tan soup and dried noodle dishes. Everything is always fresh and every plate me and my family has ever tried was good.

Great dive restaurant, very economically priced, but make sure you don't go during rush hour or you will not get a seat. There is only bar seating in this restaurant so don't expect tables if you want to enjoy a family meal. It would be better to do takeout for this restaurant. Great prices, great food, but needs more space.

Great food - amazing price. Not the place to impress a date; however it is amazing to know places like this are around. I am going back SOON!

When my husband first tried to take me here I was scared I would get sick. Much to my surprise it was tasty. I have yet to eat inside and probably never will but this is a great spot to hit for take out. Very affordable!!! We get the pork noodle salad and its only $7. Based on my experiences... More
