We only stayed 5 days in New York but ordered 3 times from them because the food was just too delicious!! Especially their cumin lamb soup noodle, OMG, just by thinking of it watered my mouth! And the chicken and shitake dumplings, DELICIOUS!!

Their specialty is the hand pulled noodle (lang mian). Other noodle types such as flat noodle (too thick) are less interesting.

Sometimes, you just want a casual quick food with strong flavor, instead of formal restaurant dining. We have been wanting to visit this spot for a while, so we decided to give them a try.

Although they didn’t have many customer in the inside, the kitchen was in full steam. It seems like they have lots of delivery orders. They only have counter table that goes all the way around. This is a self-service spot, no waiter service.

The way you order the noodle dish is to first pick the noodle style, then the preparation style, and finally, choose the level of spiciness. I went with Ribbon Noodles, Spicy Cumin Lamb, and Low spicy. If you are vegetarian, this dish can be made with seitan also.

It was a pretty good portion, lots of Ribbon Noodles and chunks of lamb meat which was tender and packed with flavor. The spice level was great for me. Not too spicy but had a little kick to it.

My hubby ordered the same thing, but with different style of noodle. He chose Ding Ding Noodles, which is chopped noodles. The Ding Ding noodles are their house favorite, and it can be described as mini Chinese gnocchi.

In addition to our noodles, we also ordered Mama’s Jumbo Dumplings to share. We chose Pork & Chive. They took a long time to come out, we were almost done with our noodles about the time dumplings came out. They were nice size, but I wouldn’t call it “jumbo”…but certainly tasty and filling.

It ended up being not-so-quick food, but we were not in any rush, so that was ok. The food was really good, much better than I expected. The price point is not “fast-food” price, but you do get delicious, quality food here that are made from scratch.

Freshnoodles are always good. You almost can't go wrong. Their lamb and pork burgers leave something to be desired. Not quite as good as Xians Famous but for the area, in a pinch it's all right.

They consistently have delicious food-- the dumplings, stir fry, soup, and scallion pancakes are great. They have mild to spicy-- definitely
spicy is the best. Wouldn't recommend their salads.

A small place with limited seating, but they'll wrap soup and noodles separate for to go, and there is seating across the way on the median or the park. Takes credit cards.

Nice handpulled noodles made freshly and seasoned with traditional spices. Dumplings are not that good but the noodles are worth trying. Soups are good as well, especially the one with Tofu and spicy brew.
