Cheap, tasty, no frills dumplings and handmade noodles. Bring a group so you can share more food, but also expect to wait on busy nights (so... most nights). It's BYO too, take advantage of that if you like! Extremely popular. Look for the grapes.
Chinese Noodle Restaurant is the ultimate cheap and cheerful eatery. When you go inside there are plastic grapes hanging from the roof. Expect thick skin doughly fried dumplings, delicious hand made noodles and the most amazing egg plant dish ever. YOU MUST order the egg plant. It's a small place though. it's a bit crowded as they jam lots of tables inside

But don't let that cloud you from enjoying their beautifully handmade noodles and dumplings. Beyondread more
