What's the Hype?
By wahine of vancouver (14 Reviews)

My first time ever at any Noodle Box eatery and I"m wondering what the hype was all about. For those who have never been, you arrive at the NB and approach the counter to place your order. Find a seat and await your dish - they'll call out your name so listen carefully. This is a self-service establishment so no waiter is going to come running. Upon entering the NB, I noticed a slight greasy haze over the diners so the exhaust fans aren't sucking up the smoke from the kitchen. I guess that was to be expected in an open area concept (you can watch the chef's cook). The NB is fairly roomy with an adequate amount of seating. Some patrons standing around ordered their food to go so they weren't waiting for a table to free up.

We ordered: Thai Fried Chicken Wings, Beef Kung Pao, Malay Style Fried Rice and Thai Style Chow Mein, all in mild since every eatery has a different take on heat level so we thought we would start easy. The wings were dry, nothing more to say. At first taste, the beef kung pao was pretty good until we hit a piece of beef which was overcooked and therefore very dry and chewy. My mom can cook a piece of flank steak which would still be juicier. The more you ate the kung pao the saltier it got; in the end, this dish was way too salty. Won't order this again. The fried rice was good as was the chow mein. These we would order again. With only two out of four dishes that receive a thumbs up, we graded the food as mediocre. A "solid" would require all four dishes to be absolutely yummy.

As for value, the prices are on the high side when you consider at some other eateries, you can actually order a couple of more dishes, for the price of the above four dishes. Yes, some of the dishes were good and tasty but just not worth the price. We did agree that we would return to try some other dishes on the menu but we won't be in a hurry about it. Bon appétit!

Not Impressed Anymore

This place was good and consistent when they first opened. The service has gone straight downhill. For the price you pay totally not worth it for the unfriendly service. You pay over $10 for soup and it's filled with all noddles with little protein choice. Ask for no carb box but pay another $3 and it's just some extra vegetables (maybe) with no more protein that you are supposed to get with no carb box. Me and friends used to go there alot but not anymore...
