OK – Good for a quick lunch- noodle bowls and soups are good, but not fantastic. I'd go somewhere else for a really great meal but it's pretty good for the price.

Meet McNoodles. – The Food
It's an apocryphal tale, that one about Marco Polo bringing noodles to Italy from China, but Asian noodles still beat the pants off of their Italian brethren for breadth and diversity. Long Life's menu is broken down into four categories: noodles in soup; wok-tossed and stir-fried noodles; jook (a soothing breakfast porridge) and rice dishes; and fried dumplings and other appetizers. Gargantuan white bowls of steaming soup will fix what ails you: Laksa Luck brings a mix of Singaporean rice noodles, shrimp, halved quail eggs, sprouts, mint, crisp tofu and shallots in a spicy broth of lemongrass, sambal and coconut milk.

The Scene
The San Francisco-based chain has sanitized and codified pan-Asian noodles, adding a hipster, upscale feel to their outposts, complete with soaring architectural elements and a turbulent open kitchen. A nice addition to the Stanford Shopping Center, which has long sufffered from a dearth of Asian restaurants.

The Crowd
With a captive audience of mall walkers, women with strollers and people battling shopping bags, Long Life's main business is at lunchtime.

Completely inauthentic – I write this review out of love for my fellow human beings. This is the absolute worst noodle restaurant I have ever been to. I tried this tomato noodle dish that hardly had any flavor to it. This review was written after giving Long Life Noodles another chance, and they have not improved. The reason they have so many condiments for you is because you will need every single one to make your noodles taste like anything.
