Not bad. This hole-in-the-wall family Thai restaurant isn't bad. We had the Tom Ka Gai soup which is our favorite. It was a little watery for us, but the flavor and spice was on target. We loved the Fresh Rolls, with the delicate rice paper wrappings and peanut sauce. For entree we had the Pinching claw seafood dish. Beware that this comes with a whole crab claw that requires the diner to clean out the meat. There is also squid, scallops, and shrimp in this dish. The sauce was good, but it was quite messy to handle the crab. The seafood was a little undercooked for our liking.
Best Thai on the Eastside!.
I have to say that Noodleland is the best Thai I have ever had. I started eating Thai food about 10 years ago, and when I say Thai food, I mean Phad Thai. I occasionally ventured from this dish and tried other things on the menu, but this is the one dish that kept me coming back to whatever restaurant was closest.
I started going to Noodleland about two years ago, when I was spending a lot of time in Redmond. I had a few friends who were really into this place and I immediately understood why. This place was amazing. I have had almost everything off the menu here and I have never been sorry for any dish ordered, like I used to be with so many other places. There is one dish I do not order and that is Phad Thai. Not because of the taste (as it is quite yummy) but because of how amazingly delicious every other dish is. If you truly want to experience the cuisine, why order the most basic dish when there are so many unique and elaborate dishes for the same price?
I now work and live in Bellevue and I have attempted to eat at places in the area, but I never enjoy it. There is always variation on the level of spice, which you don't get at Noodleland. They are always consistant with the amount of heat you get for what you order. I will gladly admit that Noodleland ruined me for other restaurants. I will gladly admit that I drive from S. Bellevue into Redmond every time I get a hankering.
I highly recommend the dishes Crying Tiger and Sunshine Cashew. This is the best Thai on the Eastside by far in my opinion. The portions are a little more than just right. I often find myself leaving with left overs to make my coworkers jealous the next day.
If you have not had the experience to eat here yet, please put it on your list of things to do. Everyone should enjoy the warm and welcome atmosphere while enjoying amazing food at a great price.
Best Thai food in Redmond hands down. Noodle land has got the best authentic Thai food I've had anywhere and the service is always great. Try the lunch specials for a little variety and a great value. I also recommend the Sushine Cashew with Chicken or Tofu for vegetarians, it's a great first Thai food dish. If you like seafood you'll love the Thai Suky Yaky which is loaded with so many kinds of seafood I can't even remember it all. Some of my other favorites are Pad Kee Mao, Red Curry, Vegetarian Garden (with shrimp), and King Curry. And don't forget the Shu Mai and Thai Iced Tea or maybe a Tiger beer to start things off.
Best Thai food on the east side. The fresh new Thai decor In the dinning room helps to set the tone for the excellent meal you are sure to get from the kitchen. Many at Microsoft know that this is "the" Thai place for lunch but it is even better in the evening when you can relax and really enjoy the food. Most nights the restaurant is not too crowded and the service is excellent. Bring some friends so you can order family style if you order 1 dish per person you are almost guaranteed to take leftovers home. My favorite dishes are Phad Kee Mao, Crying Tiger, Pannang curry, and of course Phad Thai. Vegetarian Dishes are available as well as a fine selection of beer and wine.
User review by izmabul. If you fancy being blasted by a loud radio while eating badly-made Thai food, Noodle Land is your place. I tried Tarzan curry and sent it back after the first spoon.
Decent, but stay away from the pad thai. This thai joint is about middle of the road, with a very good mango and chicken salad and an otherwise average menu. But the pad thai alone will keep me away for a long time. When your staple dish tastes like it's been doused in maple syrup, I question the authenticity. Thought it might be a one-time thing, but after a few lunches there it's definitely a consistent 'feature'.
