“Mouth watering south east asian food”
Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

The food we ordered were excellent. Tasty with authentic taste. We had roasted duck and shrimp with calamari as our starter. Ambiance was fantastic. We dined at the terrace overlooking the lake with a view of the mosque. Breathtaking.

“Fluctuating quality”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Let me preface by saying, if you remember Noodle House from their original branch in Emirates Towers, well a lot has changed.

They used to be very authentic and all about high quality. Now both have gone down significantly.

Its like with every new branch that opens or every new country they start business in, the quality and authenticity drops.

Makes sense in a way. To be able to maintain the same quality pan-branches whether locally in the UAE or abroad, you need to standardize a lot of the ingredients and recipes. You can still be very authentic and high quality but then costs will rise. This is evident in the lack or reduction of quality authentic ingredients. Very sanitized now.

That said, I'll review the Qaryat AlBeri Noodle House.

Quality fluctuates here. The branch in Abu Dhabi city (AlWehda Mall) is just terrible. The chef and cooking team clearly don't know what they're doing. I am assuming due to the venue they have allocated that type of cooking team.

But at Qaryat AlBeri the cooking is all over the place. The same chicken dish can sometimes be extra saucy (a lot of sauce) while sometimes extremely dry. Then rice will sometimes be a bit watery (steamed) and sometimes dry. But generally better than the AlWehda Mall branch.

Staff are always friendly though very uneducated about the menu. Well they can tell you its beef or chicken but thats pretty much it.

Location is excellent ,especially in the cooler months and you get an outside balcony table. A view of the Abu Dhabi Island channel and the beautiful Shaikh Zayed cultural center.

They are children friendly with a suitable menu and provide high chairs.

Let me sum it by saying that if you crave the old old Noodle House - move on. They're more business than passion now. If you want conservative & safe Chinese/Malay/Indonesian food, then come here. For real (authentic) food, go elsewhere.

“Finally a good middle range restaurant in Abu Dhabi”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Reveiw for: Noodle House, Souk Qaryat Al Beri, Between Two Bridges, Abu Dhabi, U.A.E.

It's very difficult to find a good mid-priced place to eat in Abu Dhabi (hotels are full of high end celebrity endorsed places and the back streets full of cheap eats), but Noodle House fills that void. Good value Wagamama type food, with avergae-to-good service in a nice location (try the terrace overlooking the Grand Mosque).

We often get takeway delivered as it's really good, but be warned it takes ages (1.5 hours on average) and they often forget suaces etc which can be a bit frustrating.

“Very nice open air sitting”
Reviewed December 7, 2012 via mobile

Very tasty food, the open air area was amazing at this time of the year. Rice is at a different price so it's abit pricy (not very much though), the beef pepper was amazing and so tender, prawns red curry was amazing to though the portion was in the small side. Over all I lived the food and enjoyed my dinner

“Very Homy Food”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

I went there several times, but usually ordered for delivery food. Curry Laksa is the most amazing food, Spicy Pad Thai and Nasi Goreng are delicious, too!
