hectic setting; delicious and inexpensive

Went on a Saturday for lunch. No surprise, but it was loud, crowded, and hectic. We had to share our table with other diners. The servers were polite, but rushed due to the crowd.

This is a noodle restaurant and, of course, I sampled a few lovely noodles dishes here but the star attraction for me was the Spicy Pig Ears. Yes, it sounds nasty but it tasted sublime. They slice those suckers super thin and then cook it in a really spicy, red oil sauce. The crunchiness of the sliced ears with the... More

If you like hand-drawn noodles this is the place for you. Don't be put off by the line going out the door. The service is fast & the noodles are excellent. You can watch the noodles being drawn & prepared.

Hand drawn noodles in soup or platters. I had the pork noodle soup and my wife the shrimp noodle soup. Both excellent., filling and at a good price. The service was as good as the food. This is not a fancy place but if you want a good meal the next time you are in Chinatown, here is the place... More

Have had a few meals here, latest being the beef brisket noodle soup. Yum! I got it to go & they boxed the hand-drawn noodles separately so it didn't overcook. Brisket was a bit fatty but terrific flavor, and only $7.50! The green tea smoothie is quite good too! I'll upload a picture too. *The restaurant looks a little "worn"... More

Everyone in my party had hand drawn noodles prepared a different way. They were all spectacular. I had the noodles in broth with muscles, clams, shrimp, scallops, and crab stick. The broth needed a little heat, but there was chili oil on the table, so that was easy. The noodles were perfect. The dumplings, which we ordered pan fried as... More

Nan Zhou is not fancy the the food is excellent. The lamb noodles (soup) were excellent. As good or better than any I ever had in China. The scallion pancakes were addictive and the meat and chive dumplings were delicious! Two orders of noodles, lamb and veggie with fried egg, scallion pancake, order of dumplings came to $21.00. The quantity... More

Stopped in for dinner and can't begin to explain the majesty that is the duck noodle soup. There are a ton of noodles in a flavorful broth, chunks of duck and it's great. Got a veggie stir fried noodles, curry dumplings, and chicken soup too. The noodles are great, hearty and plentiful. A bowl is like 6.50, an the service... More

We went on Saturday during a long weekend so the place was completely packed. We didn't have to wait for a table since we went in about 4 pm, but by the time we were leaving, the line was out the door and down the street! The service was quick and the hand-drawn noodles were served in enormous bowls with... More

We went here on a friend's recommendation and were not disappointed. It was my family's (mother-in-law, two small kids) first visit to a noodle house, and the server was very patient and precise in describing the dishes. We didn't get to watch the noodles being made as closely as we would have liked. The restaurant itself is small and clean.... More
