I stopped in for lunch yesterday and had a bowl of the szechuan beef noodle soup. The beef was cooked to falling apart perfection and the broth had that silky/velvety mouth feel that can only be achieved through the use of Time. It was done right ! Will I go again? HELL YES! The place is small. Only 9 tables.... More

My wife and I stopped in this small restaurant for dinner this evening and the food was great! I had shredded chicken and noodles which was really good. The wife had Beef Noodles and we shared an order of Pork Pot Stickers. All were really good. All for a title of $24.94!

This is a little place - 9 or 10 tables of different sizes. They don't take credit cards, so bring cash. Crispy and dense scallion pancakes are awesome. I also love the pork and chive dumplings - plump, juicy, and the skins aren't too thick. But I come here for the spicy Szechuan Beef Tendon and Noodle Soup. Number 14... More

I randomly found the Szechuan Noodle Bowl by using Google Maps while walking through Chinatown. The best beef noodle soup I've ever eaten in my entire life. Spicy, fresh and yummy. My husband had the spicy pork dumplings. AMAZING! The servers and fellow diners were all friendly. The meal was a GREAT value. Complementary tea when you sit down. Skip... More

Seeking a bite of childhood, we decided to venture into this restaurant around dinner time. What a nice surprise we found! We ordered green onion pancakes and a bowl of spicy beef noodles. The noodles were just right as was the beef and veggies. Words can do no justice as many will likely miss this place because it's off the... More

Great dumplings--made right at a table in the corner of the dining room. When we didn't want the won ton soup because it was made with chicken broth, the server cheerfully offered to make it with vegetable broth. Delicious! Oh, I'd be remiss not to mention the green onion pancakes--a must! I also love the den den mein (noodles with... More

szechuan noodle bowl was the best place i ever had dumplings and noodle bowls. it is authentic because it is a family owned restaurant and they make the dumplings themselves and the noodles don't have any msg. also there are vegetarian dishes. it was very delicious and the service there is excellent. they treat you as if you were family...

Awesome dumplings! 4 of us went for lunch the other day and with 4 orders of dumplings, an order of scallion pancake ($3.00 & flaky tender tasty goodness!) and stir fry vegetable left a 20+% tip and still didn't go over $40.00. Inexpensive goodness that will be repeated
