This is busy with China town locals, as you can be in, fed and out for under $8. Don't expect to hang around once you have put your chopsticks down. Standouts include excellent dumplings and handmade noodles
- Mains under $20
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.
Dining at Chinese Noodle Restaurant is perhaps a lot more civilised during off-peak hours (late afternoon or early morning) as crowds from all corners of the city tend to take over this small, packed restaurant, reducing your experience to basic necessities (read: shared tables) and rushed meals (they would "politely" ask you to pay the bill whilst you're still eating). But don't let that cloud you from enjoying their beautifully handmade noodles and dumplings. Beyond the tacky dcor and unpretentious staffs with communication barrier, their food offering is perhaps the closest you can get to experiencing authentic Chinese noodles and dumplings as they were originally intended, albeit sans striking presentation. Try not to compare the food from this shop with those of modern Chinese food establishments. The noodles are quite thick and filling, and so do the dumpling "skins" -- yet they are still delicious in its own right, taste and texture wise. If you are pressedread more
This place is always full and busy when I visit, but it's totally worth it. The food there is amazing and very very cheap. You can eat as much as you like just for a pocket change and not get hungry for the whole day. Service is always great. No matter how busy it is the staff attend to each customer frequently and never leave you waiting for your food.
Very nice and cheap Chinese restaurant. The noodles are just perfectly cooked and very very deliicous. This a place where you go, eat and then leave. Don't expect to hang out there after you've finished your meal. Never the less the service is very good. Dishes are prepared quickly and served right away. The staff are all very polite and friendly. Recommended!
