“Scrap service and avg. food.”
Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

We r 4 of us and been for a lunch. service was scrap. Staff were very rude while taking the order and no smile in the face. We can understand its a Chinese restaurant but if they are in England then we expect little English. We got starters before the soup arrived. When we said we were ready to order main course then waitress said to me you just finished main course so for main course in a rude way. She didn't understand what I said. Obviously we got the wrong main course to finish. I would Never go again.

“would definitely recommend”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

We stumbled across this place by accident and in retrospect, I really wish I had read the reviews before eating however...
From the outside, we just saw the words noodle bar so decided to have a 'bite for lunch'. It was about 2pm, and we had been trundling around Sheffield all day.
Inside were formica tables in a canteen style but it looked clean and we decided to sit inside.
The waitress gave us a menu and asked what we wanted to drink. We opted for water, which didn't seem to go down too well, but were given a glass of iced water each.
The menu is in english and chinese but it wasn't that easy to understand so we ordered steamed pheonix dumplings in XO sauce, steamed shanghai pork dumplings, a big plate noodle special and a big bowl of special noodle soup. This is where the hindsight would have been nice to have.
The big plates/bowls are ridiculous in size and can easily feed 3 people. The specials included pork, chicken, beef, duck, fish and many veg - all cooked to perfection and the choice of noodles.
We were given takeaway cartons for the dumplings but left the soup and noodles.
As other reviews have said, the service was okay. There was an incident where the waitress disagreed with someone from the kitchen, and voices were raised and something thrown! All added to the experience.
The food was very good, excellent VFM - £22.70 for our choices but ridiculous portion sizes.
4 out of 5 instead of 5 out of 5 purely because of the ambience and service which are just okay.

“Just amazing”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Was taken to the Noodle Inn a few years ago by my father who had, in turn, been introduced to the place by friends. Don't be put off by the Formica tables and 'canteen' style chairs, the food is amazing. People come from far and wide to try the menu and then return again and again, ( we are quite happy to travel an hour each way just to sit and eat the tasty morsels that are placed before us at staged intervals depending upon when they are ready.)
The staff are very helpful if you need guidance and it is truly a place to try new and different Chinese dishes ( they have a specialised Szechuan menu.)
Please do try it as you will not be disappointed. The portions are large so don't over order - or go in a group and then try a few different things. They are accommodating with 'doggy bags' for leftover food and you can telephone to reserve a table.

“Best Noodle restaurant in Sheff”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

The portions are massive. They have a huge selection of noodles. my favs are the large udon noodles. We usually go with Chinese friends & they order for us & we have a selection of the most delicious dishes. In particular the seafood, belly pork & the broccoli dishes. It's basic in side & the service is not as friendly as in some other restaurants, however, it's very clean, quick service & amazing food!
