The worse services of all! – Wow...talking about something never change and that is their services! The service is terrible. Those servers act like they are working for free. I have had my share of bad service but not what I encountered in Noodle World! It takes forever to get one and after you get your order they ignore or disappear. I don't know if they are seriously under-staffed or they are just a bunch of kids who does not gave a damn about anything but a $$$. They are everything but decent servers. . They often forget what you ask them for. You actually have to get up from your seat, raise your hand for a long time to ask them for anything. What really ticks me off was when they always pretended they don't see or hear you when you call and raise your hands to ask for something. The food also takes a long time to come and inconsistent. I could carless If the food is the best in town! I HOPE THE OWNER(S) READ THE REVIEWS.
good service, open late, certain menu items are good – I went to Noodle World twice, first in Pasadena and then in Alhambra. Both times the service was pretty good. In Pasadena, I got the ramen which I didn't particularly like. The flavor was really off from what I expected it to be. The second time I went was in Alhambra since we were looking for a place open late. We just drove around Alhambra and this was the first place that looked like it was jam packed with people at 11pm. It is a huge restaurant so that is quite impressive. This time I got the teo chew noodles which I really liked... it is a better version of the Tung Kee teo chew noodles. My friend got spareribs and some thai rolls which she thought was pretty tasty. I'm planning to go back to the Pasadena one and see if their teo chew is as good. I would recommend Noodle World, but you should probably get recommendations for specific menu items ahead of time.
The place is not at all pleasant – This place is always busy. But oh, boy, it smells so bad from the parking lot all the way to inside restaurant. They need to improve their ventilation better.
Around midnight, young neighborhood hipsters frequent this bustling noodle house. – In Short
Cool teens and 20-somethings crowd the booths at this busy late-night joint, which hops until 1am. The inexpensive menu has 125 items to choose from, including salads, noodle soups, pan-fried noodles and rice dishes. Huge, steaming bowls of noodle soups arrive floating with seafood, wontons and meat, and late-night munchies are sated by deep-fried catfish, roast duck and garlic spare ribs.
Pretty good place for Pho – I sometimes get a craving for this Vietnamese soup called Pho. It consists of rice noodles, broth and thinly sliced meat of choice. Plum sauce & hot sauce is then added to taste. It is then garnished with fresh uncooked bean sprouts, slices of jalapeno, rau hung basil, and freshly chopped onions. This place has an "A" on the window and this scored big points with me. Although the service is not the best, the food was good (which is typical of these types of restuarants). I would deifnitely go back. It's worth putting up with the mediocre sevice for the quality of food.
Cash only – This place is great especially for large groups. There is usually a LONG wait time so be ready to wait. It is cash only so have your wallets full. There is also a Boba place inside the restaurant where you can drink while you wait or order from at your table. Service is ok... waiters are not that nice, kinda rude and you have to double check your order, they tend to mix it up at times. Other than that the food is great!!
A great restaurant – If you want to try good thai, chinese and vietnamese food go to noodle world. It is affordable and delicious. I would like to recommend the charbroiled pork chops and the spicy pan fried. These are two of the many favorites I have in this restaurant. My children are picky eaters and they eat happily in this restaurant. Don't forget your cash. They don't accept credit cards.
Asian Fast Food to the Fullest – You can't beat the variety of dishes offered here. Mainly a Thai-Chinese based menu but most dishes hit the mark in flavor and quantity for this style of restaurant. My favs, Noodel world Tom Yum (A little spicy, a little sour, a lot of flavor), Lard Nah(Even some traditional Thai restaurants don't come close the way Noodle World properly prepares this dish), and if you still have room try a drink from Boba World(if you like Tapioca balls and milk tea, lots of good flavors to choose from)
Wham, bam, thank you m'aam!! – It's good for a quickie on....say a late Tuesday night or so. I never have any problems with bad service there. The only thing is waiting for a booth, I couldn't sit at the tables (don't know why, maybe that's the only reason I'll go.If they take away the booths tomorrow, I'll never go back?) The food: dollar for value is excellent, you won't find this anywhere. The taste is satifactory and the place is good for conversation piece.
Out of this world bad! – If you're looking for a place that actually cares about their customers, stay away from Noodle World! The service was pitiful each occasion I have dined there. All they seem to want to do is throw you a bowl of wontons and expect you to finish it in a matter of seconds. Where would I get this assumption? Each time they toss the check on our table well before we were finished dining. Not only that, their utensils and drinks were filthy. The food was very typical, so I guess it's true... you get what you pay for.
