“Galleria area ECO eats...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

Looking for a good deal amongst the high price stores? Here it is. Most meals under $10 and tasty. They have a good assortment of soups and asian rice/noodle plates. The service is weak and not much in the way of atmosphere, but that's not what you're here for. The food is good, the place is clean and neat and inexpensive. I highly recommend it, it was filling and I left with a $10 bill, and that includes a generous 15% tip!

“Fun Delish Noodles, an inner looper experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

I went with my wife on a Saturday afternoon. We were traveling through the Sheperd area and we went here cause we needed a quick inexpensive meal. We have gone here before.

I love that the menus are all photo albums. Just pick your posion and they have some sort of variation of it. Ginger, Tofu, you name it. You like Pho? They got that. You yaki soba (buckwheat noodles)? They got that.

Some of the names of the menu items are are funny too that are tied to the local arts scene, like art car curry.

If it is your first time, just ask the guy who takes your order for advice. You order up at the register and they bring it to you. They give you a number so the server can find you.

Very casual. Very delish. Very inexpensive.

“High hopes but disappointed...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2012

After reading reviews here, decided to try Jenni's noodles on Post Oak.

The crispy potstickers were killer. But the eggrolls were tiny (though flavor was ok). And the limeade was also great.

However, the Super Duper Fried Rice bowl was a huge waste of money. It lacked any flavor sans the 3 shrimp on top. And those 3 shrimp had a funky smell that was left in the rice. Possibly 3 pea pods and a couple sprouts. Total waste and did not taste anything like fried rice should.

I'd go back and do 3 orders of the crispy pot stickers just for dinner. :) But I'd pass on the others.

“Great way to spend your lunch hour!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

I've been going to Jenni's Noodle House for several months, and recommend them for several reasons.

First the food is wonderful! The Infernal Chicken Curry is my favorite. It's a simple dish, but the blend of spices and flavors always seems to be just right. I've tried several other dishes as well and each one has been very, very good. The limeade is really good, too!

The service is very friendly, and very quick. In spite of what is usually a capacity crowd during the lunch rush, I have never had to wait very long for my food to arrive, and the wait staff has always been very polite and accommodating.

I think the pricing is pretty good for a Galleria area eatery, and I've also never had trouble finding a parking spot within a reasonable distance from the front door.

All around a good place to grab something different (and far better) than fast food for lunch! Rumor has it that there are several locations, but the Galleria location is the only one I've visited.
