“The Noodles, Almaty, Kazakhstan”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

I visit often Almaty and stay at hotel Kazakhstan, which is good value for money and in a good location. Next to the hotel is a modern restaurant The Noodles, popular amongst the young and wealthy. So far the food has been great, but now in October 2012 I was really dissapointed; the salad was old and floppy, just a pile on the platter. Disgusting. Also the other food we tried was not as good and fresh as earlier. They have clearly let the quality go down badly.

Some other points; the beer is always hand-warm there. I sent it back once and asked a new one, but it was the same again. They dont keep/serve the beer at the temperature it should be.
And if you order tea, you will get a separate check for that. Why on earth cant the food and the tea be on the same bill?? And they dont like credit cards; once we had to come back and pay cash, next time the credit card is again ok. ??? Clearly a management problem.

Get new management, put the food and beer in order again, accept credit cards and put all on the same bill, and I will come back again.

“You get what you see”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

At the heart of the city Noodles is where you can have your lunch by the fountain and no surprises as to what you order and what you get. They have a very nicely designed menu with true photos of the dishes and all the necessary details. The kitchen is multinational.

“my cafeteria”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

I eat there at least twice a week. Simple but fresh food for the lunch menu. Many dishes a la carte, including good Noodles (that's the least you can expect with this name but really worth trying), Burgers, decent pasta. Only the bread is really substandard, and their pastries are not fantastic. Good decoration. Prefer Noodles on Dostyk (hotel Kazakhstan) to the second one (same dishes but service and atmosphere clearly below).
