This is a fantastic deal- huge bowls of noodles in broth for about $7 a bowl. Easy to walk to and lots to see in the adjacent area.

Oh how I wish CA had a place like this. While my lunch buddy had the hand pulled noodle soup with beef tendon (the best!!!), I ate the shaved noodle soup with roast pork (cha siu in CA terminology). While my soup was large in portion and great to eat on a snowy day, the beef tendon had the better... More

Came here with a group of 4. It takes a little time to get seated during lunch but it is worth the wait. The meal comes with hot tea and there is a selection of bubble tea smoothies. The meatball soup and seafood hand drawn noodle dishes were delicious. Our colleagues who had meat noodle dishes were not as happy... More

I got the stir fried noodles, my wife got the noodles with tendon, and the daughter got the spicy noodles. They were tremendous and these type of noodles have always been a family favorite. They are from china and very judgemental on noodles. I had some meatball soup, it has nice broth and nice meatballs. I honestly couldn't say if... More

Nan Zhou is a staple in Philly's Chinatown and for good reason. The noodles are the star here and they either come in various kinds of soup or in various kinds of stir fries. For those that don't know, hand drawn noodles are like spaghetti and are made in the traditional Chinese method of beating and stretching the dough. The... More

Great place for fresh noodles with broth. Also had the turnips which were crunchy, a little spicy and very good. 8 People $70, can't beat that for good filling food.

Great seafood noodle soup, $7.50! Had to wait 5-10 minutes (Sunday) but well worth it. We'll be back soon.

Went here with some friends because of all the terrific reviews i saw online. We all got different noodle soups and we all said the same thing, the noodles were delicious but the meat was tough, grisly and borderline disgusting. It was greasy and the broth had very little flavor. Would not come back here with all the other great... More

A local recommended this place to me. It was a bit of a walk from where I was staying and I almost walked by it, but glad I made the trip. Authentic, hand made noodles; very spicy. Note that medium spice here is more spicy than the average "Americanized" Chinese restaurant. I had a great noodle bowl with jumbo shrimp.... More

A visitor might not go to all the effort to find this place, but that's what I like to do when visiting a new city. Eat where the locals eat. So many choices, I am sorry I could only enjoy one meal. We were able to walk there from our hotel. They only take cash, but there is an ATM... More
