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

This is our favorite local chinese place; for take out and dine-in. The egg rolls are top notch. I swear the secret ingredient is peanut butter, and they are so addictive. I love their crab rangoon and general tso's chicken (which isn't all that spicy). Speedy when you call for pick-up, usually no more than a 10 minute wait. The... More

Everything on the menu is great. The servers will explain the entrees in detail and switch out types of noodles and protein (beef, chicken, pork) if asked.

This is a guarded secret for the locals. Not an impressive exterior (end of shopping complex), not an impressive interior (family friendly), but excellent service and food. We tried the House Special and another Fried Rice Noodle dish next to it on the menu. We will go back soon and often. It was hard on my weight loss, but I... More

This is the best noodle house HANDS DOWN that I have ever been to. I've been going since I was a child and we now take our kids over and over again. We always sit at the same table. This is definitely a family favorite. My husband loves everything on the menu and the kids love trying all the different... More

Let me begin by sharing my biases. We have eaten here dozens of times and this is one of our favorite restaurants. We know the owner, Helen, who is also the only waitress. She is a dynamo and does everything. They make several excellent dishes including the Mandarin ribs, clams with black bean sauce, and Chinese broccoli with oyster sauce.... More

I read a few reviews elsewhere (saying it was really good) and decided to give the place a try. I ordered bbq pork and Eight Treasure tofu and was merely disappointed. The bbq sauce was very pungent and strong and not your typical chinese bbq flavors I would have liked. The cut of pork was very fatty and I took... More
