“Don't waste your money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Worst noodle soup I've ever had! I got the seafood wanton noodle soup, which had a strong fishy taste like the seafood wasn't fresh. I expected wide soft noodles like udon, but it came with barely cooked thin ramin-like noodles. I left most of it behind and won't be back again. There are much better places to get really good noodle soup for a reasonable price.

“good value for quick meals”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

With lots of variations and combinations to suit your tastes, you can fill up for about $7. On a cold day, try the noodle soup.

“Great food, great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013 via mobile

This neighborhood noodle house consistently delivers above average quality, taste and freshness. There is also generally less salt than other Chinese meals. Portion size is large and every dish is cooked fresh in front of you. Dishes are ready quickly and with a smile. It is not an elegant place but it is pleasant enough for a family meal. The seafood wonton noodle soup is healthy and delicious. We have never had a bad meal in years of dining. I call it my kitchen away from home. Highly recommended.

“Fresh and Very Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

I have lived in the neighborhood for 6 years now, and every time that I have ordered take out or sat inside, the experience has been pleasant and constant. Excellent amounts and very cheap for location. The place is very clean, bathrooms clean, fast service and like other reviewer mentioned they accommodate your preparation request. Excellent budget Chinese take out place and right next to the T if you don't live in the neighborhood, although they do deliver.

“This place is cheap and good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

For noodles galore, try it. I have had two good experiences here as long as you don't mind the noodle shop atmosphere.
