Loft like space, limited menu, quick efficient service, cash only and no reservations , no phone bookings... Their food makes up for it and every item can be tailored to mild, medium or spicy levels... not expensive and quick service... Enjoyed it!

My daughter and I have the pleasure of dining at Noodlehead for lunch on a recent trip to Pittsburgh. The noodles were fabulous. Be warned...when they say what the spice temperatures are listen to them. The broth is very spicy, but also amazing. The interior...More
