This place has been around for over 20 years. Doesn't look like much but food is very good and service is very attentive. We had the House Pan Fried noodles. It is excellent. Also had the seasoned fried calamari but this was just ok. Love those noodles. Also have the pot stickers. Yum.

Service was excellent. Clean. Food was wonderful! We searched several places and landed here on the third attempt of finding a place to eat. Kids enjoyed it.

I didn't even know Fabulous Noodles was there until I went to the Popeyes next door for lunch one day. So last week we tried it. I don't know if it was fabulous, but it was very good. I had the chicken egg fu young, with fried rice, egg drop soup, and an egg roll. I liked everything, especially the... More

We have been here several times, when we are in the area visiting family members. It only been busy on week-ends and even then it is not as noisy as many other Chinese restaurants (such as Joy Yee). The food is excellent and the noodles are wonderful. Be sure to ask the wait staff which type of noodle or rice... More

Noodles was our favorite go-to Asian restaurant for many years. Restaurant has changed hands as of 2015. Food quality has suffered. Our most recent, and last, meal was inedible, cold, poorly presented, and frankly, disgusting. I support local businesses, but this is unacceptable. Will not return. Cannot recommend.

The menu is quite extensive with a lot of noodle and soup combinations. I had a very good mapo tofu dish. My wife had rice noodles in a large soup dish packed with veggies and seafood. Service was excellent and accommodating.

I had the advantage of having my Cantonese speaking wife with me, who ordered a couple of nice dishes. Be warned, while the food tastes authentic, they have taken on a few American type practises. Portions are large and very meat heavy. My orange beef didn't have a stick of vegetable in it. The sauce was tasty but heavy. The... More

This place us hidden, not appealing from the outside but the food is definitely amazing. The fab fried rice is a must try! Serving portion is quite good for the price. They offer take out and pre order. Will definitely come back!

Service is excellent but the amount of food the amount you pay is not necessarily the same as you compare other places in the same level. The selection is good. The place does need upgrading. You may note an even mixture of Asians vs others that visit here. See how many shrimp you get when you order a shrimp dish... More

I love the small atmosphere with the big flavor! Very personable and my favorite is the ginger beef paired with pan fried rice noodles.
