Nice restaurant for noodles and dumplings. The servings are very decent size and are very tasty and enjoyable. The service is fairly fast and the restaurant is very clean and bright. Not pretentious, but good food.

If you ever go to San Gabriel Valley, you will find many delicious restaurants typically targeted towards a Chinese demographic. One of the restaurants that I recommend is 101 Noodle Express, known for its beef rolls, hand-stretched noodles and a variety of delicious dumplings which you can get boiled, steamed or fried. The restaurant’s beginnings took place several years ago,... More

Homemade, fresh, delicious and fun to watch. The noodles are hand pulled which is an art unto itself. That means you dont get mass produced, factory dried and boxed, over-cooked soaking noodles. These are already fresh and mosit when boiled, so they dont get sticky and too soft. The price for noodles is probably a tad higher than you're used... More

This place is always packed with long lines at busy hours. Service is pretty quick and food arrives not too long after ordering. Some of the must gets are their potstickers, beef roll, and beef noodle soup. Their appetizer of pork ear, cold marinated tofu, and edamame was pretty decent. I think food at this location is better than their... More

Came here based off reviews and friend referrals. We arrived at 6 on a Saturday night, there was a wait. We signed the clipboard on the wall and waited about 15 minutes. Inside was a little chaotic. We were the only white people in the place, everyone else was Asian. We were sat with three other tables at the same... More

My kids wanted something good to eat for dinner so we went to 101 Noodle Express. We were not disappointed! The oxtail noodle has great flavor and the meat is fall off the bones. Choose the hand tossed noodle over the regular ones, its worth the extra 50c. There's also a wide variery of dimsum to choose from. Just keep... More

How can I begin with? I'm always down for an order maybe 2, when it comes to the beef rolls. Love their green onion pancake. Their dumplings and xiao long bao are pretty good. Would recommend people to come give it a try if your in the area !

Most important is clean. My husband's tummy can tell which restaurant is clean and he has no problem with this one. Delicious, large beef rolls. Shanghai dumpling is also good. .

Went here with family and a friend. Restaurant consisted of many waiters, but I saw other tables trying to get their attention. Food was decent, but I discovered something disgusting in my water.
