Small place with room for only about 24-28 folks instead and maybe another 10 outside. If you don't get here early expect to wait, but the good news is that food is quickly prepared and served and so people don't stay here very long. Now...More

Small and cozy. Great place for hot noodles on a cold night. Parking is pretty easy or right on the street. Grilled Portobello Mushroom over Spinach Noodles was our table's favorite. Nice portions and friendly staff.If it's busy just sign up on the list out...More

Have been to the sister restaurant many times - dinner Sunday was awesome and now will make this one a must go next time I am back!

While we often have to wait for a table, once seated the service is attentive and the food comes rather quickly. There are lots of choices on the menu and everything we've had thus far has been excellent.

Noodle theory's menu features a lot more than noodle. I've had their grilled salmon several times, and it's excellent. On my most recent visit I had grilled hawaiian butterfish over roasted cabbage and noodles with a green thai curry sauce, and it was delicious. The...More

Got here 1 hour before closing, and there was plenty of seating. The bar had the dubs game on, so that was a plus. Service was pretty good. Nice neighborhood "comfy" feeling. The chili oil pork wontons and mushroom/spinach ramen were ok. The grilled butterfish...More

This restaurant has just a few tables, so it can be a wait if you don't time it right. The tables are quite "cozy" in that you're pretty close to your neighbors. Not great for a serious intimate conversation... but a lively place for a...More
