Getting lost in Soho deserves a great discovery: the Noodle Bar LES (as in ‘Lower East Side’), the newest eatery. If you’ve already devoured their goodies in the West Village: you have a rewarding reason to go East and start ordering everything on the fresher-than-fresh menu. Whether it’s Thai-inspired Indian/Chinese/Japanese or the other way around, each dish gets high points on the taste and innovation scale.
– MARCY MACDONALD’S RESTAURANT REVIEW
Noodle Bar offers diners something special: the freshest ingredients, neighborhood feel, and downtown hip without uptown prices. Our tasty and healthy Pan-Asian menu offers something for all discerning diners, whether you like your fare traditional or with a twist of something new. We might tempt you with coconut fried shrimp or Tom Yum Bouillabaisse. Or perhaps you’d like our Asian de Cuban sandwich with crispy tempeh (voted the strangest sandwich in NYC by the Village Voice), or our balsamic portobello with siracha aioli. Needing a healthy pick-me-up? A variety of salads such as spicy beancurd salad or cucumber and red pepper salad are sure to please. Or, if you’d like nibbles, our small plates are a great way to try a bit of everything.
With our two locations — in west village and newly opened lower east side — we are pleased to offer diners a fun and lively environment. Both locations offer a selection of wines, sakes, and imported beers. The Lower East Side location has a movie screen where we show old Kung-Fu movies for our customers.
Diners attest to our fresh food, and love our open kitchens.
Zagat: It’s fun to “watch the chefs” create “nouveau” Pan-Asian “street food” in the open kitchen of this “cute” little Villager; locals who want an “inexpensive lunch” they can “slurp down in no time” find it a “great addition.”
Others say that “This trendy stop for quick eats had raised the bar for noodles in the city.”
Please join us as we continue to offer you fresh, reasonably priced eats in a comfortable lively setting. We look forward to serving you soon.
