For an appetizer we had the spring rolls which were nice and crunchy with a tasty dipping sauce. For main dishes we had street noodle 1 and pad thai. They were very satisfying, flavorful dishes and we all 4 thought that #1 in heat was just perfect!

People line up to enjoy the cuisine. Lots of noodle dishes as the name suggests. Good soups. Nice ambiance.

Delicious Thai. Caution: it is cash only, and it can get crowded, but they are good about seating quickly. Don't skip the steam buns. The Kee Mao and See Yew are delicious. The menu is simple and well done. Did I mention don't skip the steam buns?

The dishes are inexpensive and delicious. The flavors were so wonderfully balanced you could really taste all the ingredients. They offer a 5 level sliding scale of spicy which was nice having a sensitive stomach. I stuck to a 0 while my son went with a 3 which he felt was a good level of spice. We got steamed dumplings...

Excellent noodle dishes in a noisy, busy restaurant. Select from a small menu of 8 noodle dishes, 2 soups, and 6 appetizers. Cash only, most dishes are $9.00. We sat in the back, it was chilly, everyone was wearing their coats, but the food more than made up for it. The front seemed warmer. Be aware that the spicy rating... More

Noodlehead has authentic noodle entrees for fair prices ($6-$9). The sauces were rich and flavorful and come in a variety of spice levels. Service for 2 was quick and waitstaff was friendly. Remember, this restaurant is CASH ONLY!

Really yummy noodles! It isn't a huge menu but they do offer is delicious. Reasonable prices with plates at mostly $9. Beware the spice levels if you are sensitive... even a level 1 out of 5 has a bit of a kick for those who stick to the more mild ratings.

Very good Thai food. Inexpensive. Very quality to price ratio. Take out is also a very good alternative. The service is not always their best attribute but given the quality of the food we all turn the other way. They only take cash but the restaurant had a distributor in the restaurant

We love Noodlehead. Wonderful pad Thai, street noodles, .... everything is great. Keep in mind that a 2 is pretty spicy, husband did a 3 and had sweaty brows and he can eat wasabi as a condiment. Three things, there is always a wait (it's worth it), they onlybtake cash and they are BYOB. Also,portions are big and doggie bags... More
