Fast, fresh, and authentic

I had the advantage of having my Cantonese speaking wife with me, who ordered a couple of nice dishes. Be warned, while the food tastes authentic, they have taken on a few American type practises. Portions are large and very meat heavy. My orange beef didn't have a stick of vegetable in it. The... read more

This place us hidden, not appealing from the outside but the food is definitely amazing. The fab fried rice is a must try! Serving portion is quite good for the price. They offer take out and pre order. Will definitely come back!

Service is excellent but the amount of food the amount you pay is not necessarily the same as you compare other places in the same level. The selection is good. The place does need upgrading. You may note an even mixture of Asians vs others that visit here. See how many shrimp you get when you order a shrimp dish... More

I love the small atmosphere with the big flavor! Very personable and my favorite is the ginger beef paired with pan fried rice noodles.

I had read good reviews from other places as I would not normally stop at this restaurant from seeing it from the outside. Even stepping in, the decor is quite old for booths and tables. However, the service is stellar and the food is quite good. Whether you have allergies or preferences, along with requesting recommendations, they are very good... More

I eat here often. Local restaurant hidden in a strip mall. The owner remembers that i am vegetarian and makes a point to tell me which are the freshest greens. The food is always tasty and presented well. Highest marks for attentive and friendly service.

Very authentic Cantonese home cooking. Their beef brisket pot was the best I've had in Chicagoland, so tender and not stringy. Noodle dishes were all excellent. Salt pepper fish was done superbly. Will be back if we are in the area.

Small place off the beaten path. Very nice people. Very good food. I got the chicken satay with thin noodles and pot stickers.

The menu at Fabulous Noodles contains noodle dishes as well as more traditional Chinese items. A group of my friends and I have been getting items from Fabulous Noodles for our annual Christmas party for many years. We have never been disappointed. It is very tasty food!

We have been coming to Fabulous Noodles for over 20 years and are convinced it is the best Chinese restaurant in the western suburbs. The atmosphere is not fancy, but it's quiet and the service is second to none. Helen, the owner, will ensure you have a great experience. Try the Season Fried Orange Roughy - amazing, light savory coating... More
