I had noodles and soup, vegan. It was very good and a lot of food. We got it as take out. It takes a while to get your food if you are getting it as a take out, but it was good.

They seemed surprised, and rightfully embarrassed, when I handed them the twisted staple I found at the bottom of my bowl, just before my last bite. Unfortunately, I'd already eaten the rest of the soup. Cleanliness, anyone? Will not be returning.

Although I really wanted to get the pad thai (couldn't because the sauce had peanuts in it--so be aware of that), I did get another rice noodle dish that was very tasty. They accommodated my request for take-out and remembered to give me plastic ware.

Weekday lunch. Not crowded. The restaurant is located downtown so we paid to park. The location is inside a building off a hallway. The waitstaff was very friendly, service prompt, and they checked several times to make sure we were ok. They have a few...More

This gem is tucked away in the strange mall area of downtown Lancaster but I was pleasantly surprised at the inside and the food is to die for! I will be back.

Vegetarian entrees were $10 each and were very big portions. When we told the server we were vegetarian she told us how accommodating they could be with almost every item on the menu. While we waited for our food I played a little N64 which...More

Craving umami, that savory flavor that only a good Asian chief can achieve. After a brief search we found issei noodle in Lancaster PA, and boy was I satisfied. They hit the culinary trifecta: Great food, great service and fair prices. Upon entering we were...More
