This was my first visit to Twisted Cafe. It's small. Seats about 20 people . I enjoyed Sichuan Squid which was excellent. Restaurant was clean and parking in front is plentiful. I look forward to returning.

Hands down the best ramen in Hampton Roads. The owner/chef makes his own noodles from scratch. You can watch the process while in the restaurant. Bowl after bowl of golden goodness! Go here...you will not be disappointed.

The noodles are made fresh for each bowl. I had the veggie Ramen. Huge bowl, lots of veggies, noodles and broth. Don’t let the shopping center scare you away- what this location may lack in fancy they make up in flavor!

I ordered the duck ramen soup and overall, it was a little below average. First, I found the dish bland and under seasoned, so I put some soy sauce and hot spices in it to give it flavor and a kick. The veggies were soggy...and limp. I didn't even bother to devour them. They put lots of cilantro in the soup, which I found somewhat unpleasant. in my opinion, I would have cut back on the cilantro. The noodles were average. They could have held up better. I've had way better noodles at THE STOCKPOT. Lastly, the waitress wasn't very friendly but I gave her a good tip anyway.More

Stopped in for some vegetarian grub and found a fantastic unique gem in Virginia Beach. The service was fast, the hand pulled noodles were heavenly, and the prices were great! Definitely not your run of the mill Chinese restaurant and definitely worth the trip!

This place is like something you would find in New York! The best noodles I have ever had. Great service and fresh delicious food. You would never guess when you see the shopping center.

Hand pulled noodle fans in Hampton Roads can find more than one option to try. Over three visits I've been delighted and I'm confident you will too! Located on Great Neck Rd in the last plaza prior to Virginia Beach Blvd. it's directly behind Subway....Parking is in front of the business. The walk up tidy. Upon entering I found an eight table dining room that was clean and set ups complete. Twisted Cafe opened late Summer of 2018 with no fanfare, no publicity, no press from a local newspaper and no social media presence. In spite of this word of mouth has spread for the authenticity of their bowls. After three visits over the past few months they are getting stronger and gaining traction. The owners, a Chinese couple with young son that's often seen in the dining room moved from Texas last Summer. Family members opened up the first Twisted that still operates in San Antonio. Service has been friendly, but the language barrier strained with broken English. With no current staff other than the owners efficiency with drink refills slow. Quality control has been superb with no issues on ordering. Prices are fair for both the quality and quality of dishes. The noodles in all bowls tried have been scrumptious. Items tried to date: ~ Spicy Beef Ramen Soup - my favorite to date. Exploding flavors, fresh tender meat and broth that’s award winning. ~ Pork Chops Ramen Soup - the broth spot on yum! The meat plentiful, but seasoning seemed off. They offer two kinds of soy (spicy/hot) at the table. ~ Gyoza (Fried Chicken dumplings) - to die for a fried to perfection and dipped in soy. Loved!!! ~ Beef Ramen Soup - what seemed like an endless bowl of quality meat. Flavors popping out of the bowl. ~ Chicken Ramen Soup - the broth tasty and chicken tender. ~Beef Lumpia - I would have liked it fried up more. It was served hot, still yum. ~ Fried Banana - bring a friend to share this with. A warm gooey delight. Open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner. Phone in and carry out available. Delivery by GrubHub. Your gonna tell all your friends. 4.5, rounding up.More

Don't let the shopping center fool you, this place is 5 stars. Super quaint restaurant with a clear view of the kitchen so you can see everything being made fresh. We ordered lumpia to start followed by a noodle dish and rice bowl. I'd recommend...ordering the rice bowl and get it spicy. It's not too spicy but has a terrific flavor. Handmade noodles are awesome even though pretty loud while being made. The couple next to us ordered Ramen which looked incredible and is next on our list.More

I ordered chicken ramen soup and chicken stir fry noodles. It was so amazing. Each serving was probably enough for 2 people. This is definitely a must try and great addition to Virginia Beach.

A new über-cosmo Asian restaurant just opened in London Bridge Shpg Ctr which officially has the awesomest cuisine in town. The new owners have completely redesigned their smallish unit w/ fun mod-Japan style decor. Its staff was eager to please & whipped up our tasty...lunch quickly & w/ alotta smiles. On our 1st visit I enjoyed their stir-fried Veg Ramen with an order of Chicken Yakitori (appetizer) which was amazing! Everything on the menu is available spicy (my choice) or non-spicy - spicy really isn't that spicy, but kind'a tangy. They make their own Ramen from scratch so its extra tasty - easily a meal in itself. The appetizers are all interesting so could be a great tapas style lunch or diner. It was so good we went back for supper 2 days later; This time I got a rice bowl entre' - Katsu Chicken (spicy), entre nous, it was AWESOMER! Very tasty & more than I could eat in one sitting. My husband ordered the Shrimp Curry which was also excellent w/ fresh shrimp cooked perfectly. Twisted Cafe is fast, friendly & delicious. I love the name - it's close - it's clean - its unusual. I found it to be a pleasant surprise & am happy to recommend!More
