“Great Asian Food in Old City”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

The convenient location of this restaurant by the Ritz theaters first drew me to this restaurant. The food is delicious and beautifully presented! Service is good and accomodating for the theater; they will get you in and out in time for the show.

“Satisfying and reasonably priced”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

I'd never had soup ball dumplings or thin egg noodles like the ones they served with the beef lo mien. The prices were great and the portions huge. The beef lo mien had a lot more beef than I expected and that was very pleasing. Service was pleasant and prompt. Definitely glad I ate here.

“Kid friendly, good service, tasty food”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

Out of the way Chinese serves quality noodles and other staples in a basic setting. Kid friendly and flexible with ordering off the menu. Great prices .

“Quiet and so nice on a cold Sunday afternoon.”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

It is very low key in here, but the noodles are always good. Try the dumpling soup. It's delicate and simple.

“One of the best places to get Peking duck in the city”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

LOVE LOVE LOVE this place!! Anytime we spend the day in the city, we go to Noodle Pagoda for dinner and get the Peking duck. It's delicious! My husband is addicted to the shrimp rolls and I love the fried bananas with green tea ice cream for dessert. Just writing this review makes my hungry. Try them out, you won't regret it!
