“Never a disappointment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014 via mobile

Noodle Bar is an experience! Truly it is a little 'hole in the wall' restaurant but it's big on tasty food. We always order a big bowl of Pho (chicken or beef, depending on our mood). Noodle Bar doesn't use MSG so their soup broth is not overly salty like at some Pho restaurants. I usually order a chicken dish with veggies. Never disappointed.

“Pho = Nasty”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

I will admit, I'm a pho snob. I went there for the pho, and because of the positive reviews was expecting something decent. But I was hugely disappointed. First off, you have Chinese, not Vietnamese making the pho. It lacked the depth and herbal flavors I'm accustomed to eating. The pho was barely edible. Perhaps some of their other options are better (Chinese food), but don't come here for the pho. Nasty.

“Good take away type food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

Having generally been disappointed with poor quality overpriced food whilst on our travels, we thought we'd give Noodles Bar a go based on these reviews. We weren't disappointed. It's more of a takeaway than a restaurant though we did sit at the bar to eat and enjoyed our time. The food was great and reasonably priced (about $12 for a main and drink). We'd definitely go back and have recommended it to friends who'll be doing the Route 1 road trip.

“Awesome Food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

I absolutely love this place. Everything from the spring rolls, wan tan soup and dried noodle dishes. Everything is always fresh and every plate me and my family has ever tried was good.

“Great Dive restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

Great dive restaurant, very economically priced, but make sure you don't go during rush hour or you will not get a seat. There is only bar seating in this restaurant so don't expect tables if you want to enjoy a family meal. It would be better to do takeout for this restaurant. Great prices, great food, but needs more space.
