My title says it all...let me further it by saying BLAND and devoid of flavor, oh, that means the same thing. We had the Lo Mein. Maybe other things on the menu are good, but hey, it's a noodle place and we wanted noodles. The wonton here is always good, so should have had that. But won't be back!

As it's been a while since we were at Noodletown --been sampling others in the area--my son and I opted to eat here a few days ago. We left thinking that it was one of the best Chinatown meals we've had! The Salt Baked Seafood combo was PERFECTLY cooked, crispy, moist, tender...the Flowering Chive rolls and Veg dumplings tasty, tasty, tasty, and Hong Kong style Lo Mein is always satisfying. Quick seating (yes, at a shared table, but we don't mind) and friendly fast service added to the great exp! Only problem is the extensive menu..I always tell myself I'm going to try a certain dish "next time", but then usually get an old favotite! Well, next time.....

I saw another review that said that the restaurant was going down-hill. I normally ignore some of these, chalking it up to the fact that you can't make everyone happy. I should have listened. I am an American who was introduced to this restaurant by a Chinese buddy. I have been there on 3 previous occasions and the food has been nothing short of stellar. This time however: - The salt baked shrimp (their "crown jewel" as far as I am concerned) was very dry. - The Baby Pig was also a bit dry - The Wonton in Soup was very good. - The duck rolls were actually very good. - Duck noodle dish was ok. Bottom line: It didn't have the same "Wow" factor that I was used to on earlier trips. Maybe the chef was gone because we at on Thursday before the Chinese new year? Out of sheer loyalty, I might try it again, but it is definitely not the same.

I've been going here for years, they recently changed owners, the staff seems the same, only the food has gotten unappetizing. It used to be quite good, but the last couple of times I've had it, the pork was all fat, the sauces were very watery. I gave them a couple of chances, but I think I'm done. It's a real shame too, because at one time this was one of the top two or three places in Chinatown.

They have the best roast duck and BBQ roast pork in the world!....Also great wontons with plump shrimp and pork..i usually get the wide egg noodles with wonton either topped with roast duck or BBQ roast pork and dollar extra Chinese broccoli. Also good..seafood with pan fried noodles...stir fried snow pea shoots (when in season)...the fluffy, light noodles called yi-mien noodles with crab meat and mushrooms...great rice porridge (sampan is my favorite)..salt and pepper pan fried shrimp..crispy baked chicken...

Quality has taken a nosedive since it opened. Now my overall impression is greasy/watery/salty when it used to be really amazing. Kind of a shame.

I agree with all the reviewers that mentioned the "salt-baked" (it's fried) seafood. I had the soft shell crab and shrimp; both excellent and best eaten right away. One thing I appreciated about the restaurant is that they offer small vegetable dishes as sides, which makes it possible to have an affordable, well-rounded meal. It's great if you have to dine alone or with just one more person. You can order two real dishes and a veg.
