My wife and I have been all over the world, including a lot of SE Asia. OB Noodle House is awesome and delicious. I highly recommend!

Great atmosphere and beer. Staff was very friendly. Food was really good. It's a busy place so go early or have drinks while you wait.

Went to visit after seeing a show about the restaurant on TV. I was a bit disappointed as the Pho was too salty, the other noodle dish ordered was average in taste, fresh ingredients. The restaurant is pretty noisy however the service was very good.

I went with 3 of my friend on vacation from Las Vegas. None of us were impressed with the food. We even sent one item back. We waited an hour after we were told 35 mins. I wouldn't waste time or money on this place.

In fact they have two locations in OB now. Everything we had was great. Known for their soups. We also had ribs, wings, and Spring Wraps. Spring wraps were good bit I'd try other appetizers. Reasonably priced and the service was good.

A great place if you like pho or Asian Fusion. I have been going here for 7 years now and it is still one of my favorites. There are two locations in Ocean Beach now since the OG was always so full. In addition to the food they have lots of sake and microbrews on tap.

This is a regular stop for my wife and I whenever we are in the neighborhood - we make plenty of special trips as well. Great fresh noodles, Pho and other Asian dishes. The house special fried rice is tremendous and a must order on every visit. The beer list is one of the best in San Diego and the... More

30 min after ordering no food . People that came in after us where almost done eating. I asked for it to go. Still 8 more minutes & nothing . That was bad. But the terrible part was when I asked to cancel order, the waiter took my card from the table and proceeded to the cashier. This waiter then... More

This is a young person's hangout, but don't let that stop you. The beer selection was fantastic. We asked the hostess what she recommended, and she said the chicken wings and the sizzling fish. They were both incredible. All of the dishes on neighboring tables also looked great. I will return as soon as I can.

I've been in this place many times with my friends and my husband.. I like the friendly atmosphere! My favorite, talking about the food still the old noodle house but on the other hand the new one has a really cool patio. Always greater music, service and great selection of beer! Could be better the wine one! Fried rice, noodles... More
