This spot's been here for longer than I've been alive and I've been going to it ever since I can remember. It's located in a fairly busy area in a predominantly Chinese community. You can't miss the glossy bright orange and yellow brick building. Inside, there are a few tables and in the past few years has seen a serious upgrade in decor and sanitation (though it still only has a B rating). The service is nothing special with a couple of waitresses who tend to act as if they had better things to attend to than you. Besdies the nearly rude service is the menu full of hot mandarin noodle soups. You can select from ""beef stew noodle soup"" to ""preserved vegetables with pork"" to my personal favorite, ""family homemade noodle soup."" A tasty appetizer to get you ready for the large noodle bowls is the onion pancake. It's thin and has slightly crispy/flaky outer layers with a mild onion flavor and softer interior. The must have by far though are the noodle soup bowls--hence the name Mandarin Noodle House. Each bowl contains a base broth with your choice of regular egg noodles or their special homemade noodles, some leafy green vegetables, and meat. Their portion size is quite large and could definitely feed two hungry adults. Mandarin Noodle House is a cozy, if somewhat unfriendly, little joint that serves up authentic tasting dishes flavored to perfection. Just remember to bring cash as they don't take cards or checks. They're also pretty prompt with delivery orders as long as they're called in ahead of time. I promise you won't be disappointed with the homemade noodles.
Pros: Large portions, flavorful soups, homemade noodles, quick service
Cons: Unfriendly waitresses that like to talk about you in Mandarin as if you couldn't understand
