I've come here a half dozen times the past several years with colleagues. I've never found a dish I liked. The food has always struck me too bland. I asked the guy taking orders one time for his favorite, and his recommendation let me down as too bland. Today, I looked them up online saw numerous recommendations for the twice... More

We stopped in to get some noodles, which were delicious, and some dumplings which were decent. The owner/chef was very nice. The menu is very limited-only go if you want noodles.

The way a mom and pop place ought to be. I am waiting for it to reopen tomorrow after the July 4 long weekend so I can get a Mee Heng low bowl of noodles before rushing straight to the airport! It's be one one of my staple must-visit places.

This place is practically a landmark in SLO. My mom went there, my grandma went there, my great grandfather used to talk with the owners when he went. The food is simple, but tasty. Proof that you don't need to make a million different dishes to still be great.

Rainy evening outside so I sat by the window and waited for my bean thread noodle soup as I sipped Oolong tea. I felt warm and comfortable sitting by myself and totally into the savory sour and atmosphere. Dining alone isn't always such a treat, but this darling little place was warm and welcoming. I didn't have to wait long... More

Nice little place for a casual dinner before a show at the Palm (our own little specialty theater) or The Little Theater just down the street. A small menu but fresh, well put together food.

This was my first time at a noodle house. By the way, they have changed their name to Noodle House not Chop suey House, which explains it more accurately. It serves more than just chop suey. You get a slip of paper and make your order, they cook it up all yummy and serve you fresh cooked noodle bowls. We... More

Not ever eaten at a "Chop Suey Shop" before, we didn't know what to expect but were not disappointed. Everything was fresh and cooked perfectly. Being vegan, we had no problem's with ordering from the menu with a tofu option. The restaurant was small but not cramped with a constant flow of both eat-in and take-out patrons. Well worth a...

Small, sweet, and informal, yet charming. Food was so fresh and tasty-I had vegetarian noodles with peanut sauce and a ginger beer-outstanding!

simple and good! this place has terrific noodles and soup and is a great stop before or after a movie at the Palm (next door) even tough it is only noodles and vegetables and various toppings the combinations are endless and the staff could give lessons to many other restaurants! You will enjoy this place!
