Consistently great food.
The salt & pepper squid is amazing. Just the right amount of saltiness and topped with cilantro and jalapenos. Service is always friendly and fast too. I've been on numerous occasions and have never been let down.
Good, authentic food.
One of the things I miss about my stint in NYC was all the great, authentic Chinese food. Well, Cafe Noodle is a close second with authentic dishes (including the ones with ingredients that make most Americans squirm).
You enter into a large, airy place with lots of round tables and a happy Buddha greeting you. You will see the BBQ'd ducks hanging in the lighted case along with the slabs of BBQ pork.
The menu is extensive and has standard Chinese fare plus many authentic dishes. The Orange Peel Beef is rich, spicy and gooey. The pot stickers are fantastic.
Service is excellent, although you may have an occasional language barrier unless you speak Mandarin.
A wonderful reminder of NYC and very good Chinese food.
