Hand made noodles with different choices. You just note what you want to eat (self-service menues and a pen, simple as that) and watch the man make the noodles in front of you. It was good even if it was for me a new way of eating noodles. Not at all european style :-)

I've been wanting to ask why do they put items that they don't serve anymore on the menu? What's the point of that? A waste of ink? I don't care though. I didn't get what I was looking for when I ordered, and the waiters were busy watching basketball games on the tv to take a look at us.

The noodles are excellent and this is a great lunch choice. Having said this, the self-service menus where you have to pencil-in what you want to eat are not well designed as you always end up with requesting options that you cannot simply tick off and you end up having to speak to the waiters who in turn do not...

I went to this restaurant based solely on the excellent reviews I read on tripadvisor. Unfortunately, I did not enjoy my food very much. First, there are currently more than 12 seats. They have several tables set up in the courtyard. All of the seating is outdoor. The menu is still very limited, having four choices of noodle dish and... More

Highly recommended, especially when it is warm enough to sit outside. A little bit tricky to find. Google map shows only 'Duck de chine' this restaurant is the next Building

The food was great. Mostly meat but good vegetarian options. The wild mushrooms are incredible. We had two servings of the fried tofu. Inside is a food bar setting and outside there are tables. The 1949 courtyard is a wondeful setting.

A small place, as noted above, 12 seats facing the chef. The menu is simple, but good - about 5 types of noodles in broth / soup (beef broth was very good), 3 types of veggies (Kale was good) and about 10 side dishes. We ordered 2 soups, kale and 3 small side dishes and were stuffed. The bill, including... More

There are plenty of good noodle places in Beijing, but if you're looking for a place with ambiance, good food, and English, this might be your best bet. 1949 is truly hidden, as the name of the complex in which Noodle Bar is located, suggests. Still, it's a short walk from Sanlitun, well worth the stroll. The former factory complex... More

Just off the main beaten path in Sanlitun, worth looking for it, good service, and clean and well ventilated outdoor spaces to eat, in calm and quiet. Service is good, and you are not rushed to leave, food is limited, but what is to offer is just what you would expect, The noodles are served either thick or thin, and... More
